I get so inspired by people who chose to totally reinvent themselves. I love watching shows like The Biggest Loser, and getting to see people shed so much weight and gain their health back. This week, I’d like to celebrate the success of Lisa J. from South Carolina.
She’s a 30-something Mom of two boys who lost 100 pounds in a little over a year. She worked hard and stayed focused- but it wasn’t always easy:
My greatest challenge that I faced before starting the program was that I had to wait almost 3 months after I had my child for my c-section rupture to heal before I could start. Also, another huge challenge was cooking for my family, and not having the willpower to NOT eat it! My main challenges were FOOD and LAZINESS!!
She gained control of her life and started incorporating healthy habits.
Now, I am very cautious about what I put into my body, paying close attention to ingredients, and avoiding processed foods, hydrogenated oils, and any form of sugar, especially high-fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners. I adopted a new way of living, and I have a completely different relationship with food. I look at old pictures of myself (even when I “thought” I was skinny) and I can only shake my head in disbelief. I will never go back to that way of living!
Lisa was inspired to start the Beachbody program Brazil Butt Lift, and saw great results pretty quickly:
I could SEE MY BODY!! This is what I am SUPPOSED to look like! I feel sexy and feminine!! I am proud that I was able to stick to this program and get rid of the many many fat layers that were covering me up! I am getting the sexy body that I could only have imagined in my wildest dreams!! Leandro Carvalho helped me take off my fat suit!!
Way to go, Lisa!
