When I started this journey with Amy Gipson, I told her, “I just want to feel comfortable in my own skin again.” I think, as women, we are hard on ourselves. My expectation wasn’t to be the perfect size or the perfect weight. I just wanted to feel comfortable in my clothes.
I have struggled with my weight since my teens. I have been up and down for years but I have always been really active. I hit my highest weight this last year after I completed my second and last marathon. The first marathon I did was 7 years ago and I was so happy with the weight I lost and thought if I ran another the same would happen. So I trained and decided to reduce my calories and food intake thinking I would lose weight, but that was not the case. My body was storing the fat and it did a major number on my metabolism. I was working out 5-6 days a week, eating healthy – but miserable.
One of my dear friends mentioned she was seeing a trainer that focused on working out AND nutrition. She encouraged me to talk with Amy Gipson.The thing I remember Amy saying to me the first time I met her was, “not every diet will work for every individual. Everyone is different and if something isn’t working for you, we will change it up.” She was completely right.
When I started, I couldn’t believe how much food I was eating, but soon my body became so used to it and I was never hungry. I thought I had worked out a lot before I started this transformation. I had no idea the amount of cardio and weight fitness I would do in the following weeks. This was so much harder than training for the marathons, by far, but it was also completely worth it. The thing I loved about the workout schedule was that it changed every 4 weeks so I never got bored and I was able to challenge myself every week. I never had a week that I said “wow, that was easy.”
There were definitely days where I would go to the gym and then come home knowing I would still need to do more cardio and lift more weights. I could easily just not do it, but I was in this for the long haul. It really helped to break up the workout. I even stuck to my diet when I went to Chicago with friends. Everyone ordered Chicago style pizza (which took 40 minutes to make! That had to be worth the wait, right?) and I ordered grilled chicken with a side of steamed spinach and mushrooms. I knew that day that I had the willpower to give this 100%.
So here I am, 16 weeks later, and I can say, I feel the strongest I have ever felt in my life and am more comfortable in my skin than I was 16 weeks ago. I am so thankful for Amy Gipson’s encouragement, guidance, and grace. I wish I had met her years ago. This is not the end of my transformation. Amy has taught me so much about fueling my body and how this is a lifestyle change and not just a diet. I feel confident as I continue on the road of feeling good in my skin. Thank you Amy Gipson!”
