In her own words…
“In the fall of last year I turned 40 and made a decision to start getting healthy. I first started by focusing on working out 2-3 days per week. I didn’t change anything about my diet, didn’t track food, just worked out. I realized I would need to tackle one behavior at a time to change my bad habits. At the end of December I started to think that it may be time to take the next step and focus on my eating habits. So right around New Year’s Day I signed up to have 12 weeks of meetings with TheFittChick. I didn’t have a goal weight in mind at all; I wanted to focus on getting healthy and not just a number. I was concerned if I didn’t hit the number I would become discouraged and give up. Jillian understood my thinking, but decided to put a number down to aspire to. It wasn’t anything set in stone, but more for her paperwork. Also, I am a pretty picky eater and Jillian worked with that and encouraged me to try new things but to eat the foods I enjoy. I started on TheFittChick plan and that first week lost almost 5 pounds. The weight continued to come off. There was a week or two where I maintained; but with Jillian’s support I kept going. At first I was overwhelmed with preparing meals and what to make. Jillian gave me great suggestions and I looked at the meals I already made then adjusted them accordingly. After meeting with Jillian for 12 weeks I was down over 35 pounds and lost more than 19 inches. We no longer have scheduled meetings but have checked in with each other occasionally. She remembered I was going on vacation and wanted to see how I did. Recently when I passed that goal weight she wrote down at our first meeting, she was the first person I contacted to give the news. She was thrilled for me. I continue to follow the plan she helped set up and I also feel good to make choices even when I go out. My goal for seeing TheFittChick was the get educated in order to make the best choices for me to be healthy. I still have weight I want to lose and will continue using the knowledge I have gained and also plan to keep learning more. Seeing Jillian was a great way to continue my journey to be healthy. She is there for you anytime, even after you are no longer seeing her on a regular basis. I would recommend TheFittChick to anyone that I know who wants to lose weight, learn more about a healthy diet or just needs a little help in figuring out what works best for them. Thank you Jillian for all of your support.”
Let Judy inspire you this holiday season. Instead of gaining the average 7 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years, try challenging yourself to lose seven pounds.
Because a year from now, you will have wished you started today!
