• I was doing it ALL WRONG! ~Rachael’s “aha!” moment…

    loss

    Patience pays – after the first 2 months of “trusting the process” w/no changes (right), 4 months later = results! (left)

    I had always been skinny and in shape prior to having children.

    I never had to watch what I ate, count a calorie, and even worry a bit about my weight. After having my first child, 9 years ago, I gained about 55 lbs, watched what I ate, but not strictly and worked out. I was able to lose the weight and keep it off. Jump ahead 6 years, and I got pregnant with my youngest daughter, who is now 3. Losing the 58 lbs I gained with her had been a nightmare.

    I jumped on the Weight Watchers bandwagon, lost some weight, and then onto the 1200 calories plunge. I initially lost weight, but then got totally stuck. I was barely eating anything, working my butt off at the gym, and still nothing was changing. I was tired, unhappy, and just miserable. Then, I stumbled across the Eat More to Weigh Less board and had that AHA moment! I did my own research, talked to trainers, and found out I was doing it ALL WRONG.

    losses

    Lost some weight, but tightening all over!

    I started by eating at my TDEE and resetting my metabolism. Initially I gained a couple pounds as expected and then maintained for 2 months. After that, I began the 20% cal reduction, began Beachbody coaching, and started Turbo Fire w/ Shakeology. In the last 4 months I've completed that program and started Les Mills Combat. I workout from home, drink my Shakeology, and have lost 10 lbs. But guess what? I don't watch the scale! My body, pictures, and clothing tell a different story. It was definitely worth taking the time to listen to my body and treat it right. I am now eating over 1800 calories per day and losing my old body. I'm stronger, happier, healthier, and on top of the world.

    EM2WL and Beachbody have changed my life. I became a Coach in order to help others and teach them what I know. It has absolutely changed my life! Let me help you change yours!
