What Were Your Reasons And Motivations For Starting A Transformation Journey With Fit Mom University?
I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror. I hated how I looked in my clothes. I was overweight and I knew I needed to lose weight. It was time for a change. Many at FMU were having success with transformations. One of the coaches at FMU encouraged me to join a transformation and that was the push I needed to start my own!
How Were You Feeling Both Physically And Mentally Before Starting With Fit Mom University?
I was overweight, out of shape, and I didn’t like the way I looked at all. I knew I needed to lose weight and I felt that I couldn’t. I didn’t really know where to begin. Physically, I would get winded easily when running and exercising. The scale dictated my mood and if I didn’t like what I saw I would feel badly about myself.
What Was Your Diet And Lifestyle Like Before You Started Your Transformation With Fit Mom University?
I thought I was eating healthy by eating “diet” foods. I really didn’t know what healthy eating looked like. Portions? What’s that? I didn’t think about portion size or the kinds of foods I was putting in my body. I would drink a glass of wine or have a cocktail with dinner and never thought of the calories it contained. I worked out a few times a week so I felt that should be enough. I wondered why I couldn’t lose weight.
How Did Your Diet And Lifestyle Change When You Started Your Transformation With Fit Mom University?
I changed my eating habits and have stuck with the meal plan ever since. I log in my food every day to the MyFitnessPal app and count my macros (carbs, fats, and protein). I exercise religiously 5x per week at RBF, every morning, Monday through Friday at 5 am. I look forward to starting my day with an a$$ kicking. I pay attention to everything that I put in my body.
What Effect Did This Have On Your Health, Performance, Lifestyle And Energy Inside And Outside The Gym?
I make my health a priority. When I’m on vacation I stay active by utilizing the gym, hike, run, or make up my own body weight workout. As for my performance, I can now run a sub 26 minute 5k when before it was 32 minutes+. I can complete 6 or more unassisted pull-ups. It hasn’t had a negative affect at all. I’m still able to go out with friends for dinner and drinks. I just make sure every other meal is on point and order something healthy that is offered. It hasn’t just affected my health but my husband’s as well. He saw my results and as a result changed his eating habits. He also has lost 30 pounds! Family and friends ask for recipes and advice and I’m more than happy to share!
What Have Been The Biggest Benefits Of Doing A Transformation At Fit Mom University?
The biggest benefits from my transformation would be the boost in self confidence. I look better and continue to get compliments on my progress! People started to notice my weight loss within a few months. I know how to eat healthy and balance my meals.
What Were Your Results Like Since Joining Fit Mom University?
I lost over 30 lbs and I’m in the best shape of my life at almost 40. It’s been over two years and I’ve kept the weight off. My 5k time improved from over 32 minutes to 25:05 minutes! I feel strong and I can do pull-ups, climb a rope, flip tires, high box jumps … you name it! My muscles are toned and people notice!
What Were The Most Important Things You Learned During Your Journey And What Really Worked For You In Helping You Make Your Transformation?
It’s not a diet. It’s a lifestyle change. I think differently about food now. I focus on eating whole foods and don’t feel guilty for allowing myself to a treat once and awhile. I balance my meals with lean protein, with healthy carbs and fats. I still keep track of the foods I eat to hold myself accountable and to stay on track. Healthy eating does NOT mean starving yourself. I actually eat more now than before since I’m eating quality whole foods. My workouts are awesome and intense but I also know I need to give myself a rest day or two as well. Planning is a big key to success. I plan out my meals and workouts ahead of time so I’m sure to set myself up for a good week. I allow myself to have a treat but always in moderation. I have found meals that are healthy and delicious so I know it’s sustainable in the long run. DON’T get hung up on what the scale says. It is not a true indicator of progress!
How Has Doing This Transformation Changed You And Do You Think It Will Benefit You Going Forward?
It has changed me in many ways. I know the keys to success and I know I can stick with it for the rest of my life. I have more self confidence and I know I look good in a bikini! I know how to eat healthy. It may sound silly, but before the transformation I really didn’t know what that looked like. Rob taught me how to balance my meals and what clean eating was.
What Makes Fit Mom University Different And Would You Recommend It To Others?
This program is different because of Rob and the coaches at RBF (FMU). They are encouraging and available if you have any questions or need anything. Really everyone at RBF is encouraging! It’s like a family! The accountability piece is is different. Those weekly checks help you stay on track. You can really see the progress that way. Of course I would (and have) recommended the program to others. It has changed my life for the better and I know it would benefit others as well!
