By approached I mean harassed until I broke under the pressure. But I sure am glad I rose to the challenge I was even let go from a “curvy” modeling job I had held for about a year because “we cannot market to ‘curvy’ women when our ‘curvy’ model is wearing a size 4.” The best reason for being fired I’ve ever heard of.
I had talked about wanting to do a 30 day challenge for a while when Robby talked me in to the 90 day challenge. He convinced me upon reiterating that it was a more economical choice and I would be a knockout in time for my 21st birthday in late April. I knew I needed to do a diet overhaul when I stepped on the scale and was getting close to 200 pounds. I was wearing a 12/14 and was constantly not fitting into clothes the way I wanted to. That is absolutely not OK for a 5’3, athletic, collegiate, 20 something. Not purely because of looks was this not okay, but for my health. I was tired and my performance in the gym had plateaued. So I accepted the challenge and even talked my parents into doing it with me.
I wanted to lose 20 pounds; the 20 pounds I had gained over the past 3 years after ACL reconstruction and college life, but I knew this goal was a bit ambitious. I knew that upon losing weight my strength numbers would go down. It has been just over three months and I am downMy dad has lost nearly 50 pounds, no longer snores or has acid reflux, and hardly ever needs his inhaler, almost 40 pounds. I have lost seven inches around my waist, six around my hips, five from my chest, and two off of each arm and thigh. To say I reached my goal is an understatement. I went way above and beyond my goal. I look incredible, if I do say so myself, and feel incredible. No longer am I dragging through the days looking forward to my next mediocre, fast food meal. I perform better in the gym and although my strength numbers have fallen, they are on the rise again.
Not to be sappy, but I am incredibly proud of myself. Also, my parents for the changes they have made and seen. My dad has lost nearly 50 pounds, no longer snores or has acid reflux, and hardly ever needs his inhaler. I was even let go from a “curvy” modeling job I had held for about a year because “we cannot market to ‘curvy’ women when our ‘curvy’ model is wearing a size 4.” The best reason for being fired I’ve ever heard of. This has turned into a lifestyle. No longer is it the torturous Whole 90 Challenge. Sure, I indulge every once in a while, but that handful of times a year will not hinder my progress or my potential. If I can do it, anyone can, but of course not without the incredible support that I have had and the knowledge I have gained.[/cs_text][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
