What was your expectation prior to starting the program?
I had really surprised myself with what I could achieve during the first 12 weeks. Prior to starting my second 12 week programing I was really not sure what to expect. I had already lost a lot of weight and I wasn't sure if I was going to loose more. I was still recovering from a shoulder injury so I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make any gains in strength. I had hoped I would continue to loose weight even if getting back to the gym was going to be slow.
Despite not really having any expectations I was blown away with the end results. I am almost back to my weight from collage! I never thought I would see those numbers again. Losing the extra weight has made it easy to get back to the gym. My shoulder is almost at 100% again and despite the injury, I was still able to make a muscle % gain. I said it last time and I'll say it again, the results have left me inspired and motivated for more.
What are some of the most powerful lessons you are walking away with?
You can have your cake and eat it too... well maybe only a little bit. I learned I can still have those indulging times of pizza, burgers, and ice cream and not break the bank. Everything just needs to be in moderation.
More importantly, I also learned that every day will not always be a great day. There will be hard days where you loose motivation and can't stand to count another macro. The bigger take away I learned is even when you can't resist, it is easier to recover from one bad meal than one big bad day. Don't let all your hard work go to waste. You worked too hard to get where you are!
What is your greatest accomplishment?
I'd like to say my biggest accomplishment would have to be getting under #165. What I didn't realize was that also meant dropping from a size 14 to a size 6. It is such a great sensation when you put on the smaller size clothing and you realize not only does it fit but you are comfortable. You start to understand that it is not the smaller clothing that makes you feel great... it's the boost of confidence that leaves you feeling empowered! My greatest accomplishment is how comfortable and confident I have become with myself as I go through this journey.
