“There’s no way I’ll lose 20 lbs. in 30 days,” I said to myself.
I remember sitting in on the 20/30 Seminar learning about this program, when I heard the testimonies of others who had gone through the program. I could not believe that so many people actually lost 20 pounds in 30 days! Like how?
I remember having self-doubt. Thinking, “There is no way I’ll lose 20 pounds in 30 days.” But spinning it around on a positive note that even if I were only to lose 5-10 pounds it would be a win.
I remember hearing all the testimonies about the many health benefits people were having from the program. I thought to myself that it sure would be a dream to have so many health benefits.
I remember two and a half weeks into the program, I woke up one morning, crawled out of bed and looked at my husband and said, “Oh my goodness, my back doesn’t hurt!” I started noticing many other health benefits in the days following. I used to have chronic back pain and migraines, both have decreased substantially, I had acid reflux, it was gone. My anxiety had gotten worse over the past 2 years, and I no longer felt those daily moments of anxiety. And I could tie my shoes without holding my breath and I could finally cross my legs again!
Finally, I remembered WHY I was doing this.
With this program, you can’t think short-term, you got to stick it out for the long-term. This is a new lifestyle, you have to learn things along the way, not everything will come easy to you, you will have to put in the time to learn new habits and implement them.
Remember why YOU are doing this. At that seminar last June, my only why at the time was to lose weight, I had NO idea all the possibilities that this program would bring into my life, and the people it would bring too. I’m so glad I didn’t allow that self-doubt to take over, because by the time I completed those first 30 days, I had lost 20.8 pounds. Now my story is a testimonial.
I remember looking at this picture on the left and not even recognizing myself; I had really lost who I was. Through this amazing program, incredible support, wonderful coaches, and believing in myself and this program, I have lost 53 pounds, surpassing my goal! I appreciate this community, the support, my improved mindset, and healthier lifestyle. This has been a life-changing journey for me. Thank you for allowing me to share my story!
