Daily Success 1/3/2013 – After adopting a child the weight started to pile on


My husband and I wanted a baby more than anything. We tried and tried, but after six years of infertility and the heartbreak of a miscarriage, depression kicked in. And the eating took over.

The more weight I gained, the more depressed I got. When we adopted, I stayed home with our baby and continued to eat. I just assumed that this was the way my life was always going to be. Until the night my husband and I were supposed to go out—and even my FAT jeans didn’t fit.

So the next day, I started my journey. I was sick of what I’d become and I realized that I wanted to be there for my son. So I chose TurboFire as my program—and the results were AWESOME! It seemed like the more inches I lost, the more I wanted to push myself harder.

After TurboFire, I completed one round of Insanity, then a round of Les Mills Pump. And I can’t quit. Shakeology is HUGE. It gives me energy and I LOVE that I am drinking a shake that is SO good for me. Being in a Challenge Group helped keep me motivated and having people give me tips and share their down moments helped me see that I am not alone.

So far I’ve lost 80 lbs., I’ve run two 5K races, an 8K, and a half marathon. I feel great. I look great. I feel so much stronger as a woman, wife and mother. My posture has improved, too. I think that goes with holding my head a little higher knowing I have completed these workout programs!
