When I partnered with Personal Trainer Food, I committed to 28 days.
I had a lot at stake.
I have tried almost every diet on the market, and while I found success with some, it was slow-moving, and I found it difficult to keep my meals with my family.
More than 100 pounds overweight, I have been on this journey to down-size myself.
In September, you’ll remember that I completed five 5Ks in a matter of four weeks.
My weight didn’t vary, just my endurance.
I was going to the gym, and nothing was happening.
I wanted to move to London and take advantage of London Fitness In-Home Personal Training.
Personal Trainer Food believes it’s 80% about the food and 20% about exercise.
Who wants to work out?!
My journey began.
I had the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Red Carpet and a trip to see my children in my future.
I was tired of lying to myself.
In week one on Personal Trainer Food, you remember that I lost 7lbs.
It was a repeat week two with another 7lbs off, for a total of 14lbs.
Week three was rough.
I only lost 0.41.
I’m not going to kid you, I cried.
My husband reminded me that it was a loss and something to celebrate.
Then I started packing for Disney’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Event, and nothing fit me.
The red carpet dress I ordered in my size, too big.
I reordered the dress in the next size down.
When it arrived, too big.
I reordered again, one size smaller, and hoped for the best.
Time was ticking.
I started week four packing my bags.
I tried on everything again.
If it fit, it went with me.
I was terrified of week four.
I couldn’t afford a mistake with a 0.41-pound loss the week before.
I was on my own from Tuesday-Saturday.
This meant I was going to have to implement everything I have learned about portion sizes, meats, vegetables, reading labels.
My clothes were “Loose”.
That night we screen Born in China and I took this picture in the lobby of the Disney Lot Theater.
I posted it on social media and the next morning, and I woke up to this text from my husband:
It was a whirlwind week, but I stayed committed.
I’m not going to lie, and there were some challenging moments–like I heard the cake pops at the Radio Disney Music Awards Viewing Party Presentation were “the best cake pops in the world”…how could I not want a bite of that?!
But I passed.
Wrapping up my Personal Trainer Food 28-day challenge:
I was afraid to stand on the scale.
I am so glad I did.
I have exciting things to share with you.
My 28-day challenge with Personal Trainer Food is over.
Here are my results:
I lost half a shoe size (yep. I went from a size 8.5 to an 8)
I lost a total of 19.2 pounds
I lost a total of 9.5″ from my body.
Here is my before and after:
I feel amazing!
In fact, three years ago, when I attended my first Disney Event, I couldn’t make it up the Academy Awards Steps.
I was winded, was sweating profusely (for HOURS after making it to the top).
This time, while I was in Los Angeles,
I hiked RUNYON CANYON!!!
Was it easy?
No…but I did it, and it was something that has been on my bucket list for a long time.
19.2 pounds and 9.5″ plus a half shoe size in 28 days.
It’s been an amazing journey.
I am so excited to begin my second 28-day journey with Personal Fitness Trainer…my goal is 10 pounds by May 3rd.
