Congratulations to Jenn Shaw for finishing up a successful 12 weeks! I have truly loved working with Jenn. She has come so far since our first meeting and her story is inspirational to so many who think that they have tried it all with no luck. Jenn has put in the work and it is paying off. Can't wait to see what the next 12 weeks brings for you Jenn!
Jenn's physical changes:
- Lost 18 pounds
- Lost 3.6% body fat
- Gained 1.75 muscle
- Lost 4 years in body age
When I first started TCL, I really wasn't sure what to expect. I had been in such a rut for so long and my motivation and drive to become a better me was no longer there. I have always been like a yoyo when it came to my weight, I would do good then fall off the wagon; over and over again. Life would be going great for me so I would do great or if something bad or heartbreaking happened, I would lose my drive again. For 22 years Suzie has watched me go from happy to sad, lose weight and gain weight until 12 weeks ago she said to me Jenn Shaw enough is enough! You need to care about yourself more and become healthy so you can live longer!
This program being introduced to me has been a blessing. I never realized that paying more attention to other macros besides just calories makes such a difference. I had done every type of diet out there. South Beach, Weight Watchers countless times, count calories on my own, and gone to probably every gym in the area. At first I was afraid to start this because my first thought was, well I don't do CrossFit! That doesn't matter! I have learned that with this program it isn't just for the CrossFit community, it is for everyone. As long as you trust the program and believe in your coaches to lead you in the right direction, it will work!
I have learned over the last 12 weeks that tomorrow is a new day! We are all human and not every day is going to be perfect and I can't beat myself up. I have also learned that it is going to take time and isn't going to happen overnight. I didn't become this size overnight so I am not going to reach my goal overnight, and that's okay. I know that I am not alone on this journey. Though everyone has their own goals, we are all here for the same reason; to better ourselves.
One of my greatest accomplishments over this process has been that I learned that I want to become healthy! I want to better myself and I want to live a longer life. You cannot be fully happy and enjoy life if you are not happy with who you are. This isn't for you who is reading this, my family, loved ones, or friends-its for me! It isn't just a weight loss, get fit journey; it is a learning how to live healthy, be mindful, and love myself for the rest of my life journey!
I cannot thank Suzie enough for pushing me to do this and always standing by my side. Reading B's inspirational story, and everyone else's is so helpful and really lets you know that you're not alone and it is possible!!! I can't thank Cindy for always being so encouraging to me since Cynergy was born and we met, even when I wasn't working a program through your facility. And Dianne, has been an amazing support system and coach to me and I feel so comfortable talking to her about anything. I can't thank you all of you enough for this, what you guys do is amazing and though I don't work out with Cynergy, I have always felt welcome! 🙂 Bring on Session 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
