Daily Success 2/24/2013 – From third grade on, I was always self-conscious about my body



I have been heavy my entire life. From third grade on, I was always self-conscious about my body. Even though I had great friends and a wonderful family, I always had low self-esteem. I was never comfortable when I had girlfriends because I was terrified they’d dump me for someone thinner.

After college, I finally got a job at a bank. I bought a new car, started saving money, then decided it was time to attack the one thing that was holding me back. I wanted to finally feel comfortable in my own skin, stop wishing and start doing. And that decision changed my life. All I had to do was Press Play!

The fact that Power 90 was marketed as a “boot camp” program really appealed to me. Working out with Tony was really fun. I loved the mixture of cardio and weight training, the yoga, low impact, high impact exercises and kickboxing. Most of all, I loved watching the weight just fall off— 20 lbs…. 30… 40… once I lost 50 lbs., I could hardly believe it. The Activit vitamins and Shakeology helped a lot (I truly believe I wouldn’t have lost half that weight wthout Shakeology!). Losing my chipmunk cheeks made me feel so much better about the person looking back at me in the mirror!

I always dreamed about having 6-pack abs. Being able to see the definition in my ab muscles in my Day 90 photo is one of my proudest achievements. I never imagined the compliments I would get after finishing Power 90. People don’t believe I got the results I did in just 3 months.

But I did, and I’m so proud.
