I started working with EXL Fitness back in August of 2009. At that time, I was pushing 200 pounds. Not quite there, but close enough to make me nervous. My size 14 clothes were getting to small. I didn't have the idea that I was grossly overweight - but I also knew my health was on the line.
That first boot camp work out kicked butt - mostly mine. I worked with Pam Gover, and was startled to see how weak I had become over the 8 years of my now-ended marriage.
When I was single, I worked out all the time, sometimes twice a day, every day, and was very active and athletic. With 2 kids born during my 30s, I didn't have the stamina to do what I had done in my 20s. I was unhappy in my marriage, and ended up sleeping all the time, dragging around the house, and choking down my misery with Bavarian creme eclairs.
After working out a couple of months, I was getting stronger, but I didn't feel like I was losing pounds like I wanted to. So on October 24, I began using a homeopathic HCG.
When I started the drops, I was 190 pounds, size 14, and had a waist measurement of 34" (and that was with my gut sucked in as hard as I could manage). I remember being just devestated when I took my measurements because when I was younger, my CHEST measured 34", not my waist! I knew I had a tummy, but I kept excusing myself saying it was from having kids (I have 5, 4 by c-section).
As of today, my waist measures 28", and I am 155. I'm so excited about my success (yes, I still have 20 - 30 pounds to go) that I want to share it with you....what I did, what I'm doing, and how you can achieve the same thing.
It's entirely doable. It isn't an easy fix. But if I can do it, you can too.
