“This is NOT my Tuesday Transformation”

Abbie Matz

Abbie came to me, like many college students finishing their freshman year, frustrated and ready to spend her summer taking her body back. She is still going strong and adamant that this is NOT HER TUESDAY TRANSFORMATION! She is committed to reaching her goal and hoping to inspire others with her “almost Tuesday Transformation.” Check out her story here…

 

         “After my freshman year of college, I came home for the summer feeling icky and sluggish. They’re not kidding when they say that freshman year is a huge transition! Aside from taking difficult classes and being so far away from home, you’re lead to believe that an acceptable diet consists of packaged snacks and late night pizza.

         When I got home for the summer, I called Jillian before I even started unpacking my suitcases. I spent the next three months in the gym at least 5 days a week and in Jillian’s office every Thursday for our weekly meeting. I worked my tush off – literally – and learned that living healthy is so much more than dieting. By the end of the summer, I was 20 pounds lighter and 100 times happier.

         I met with Jillian one last time before leaving for school. Her great energy and encouragement left me ready to lose those last 10 pounds by winter break. Turns out, it was a little bit more challenging than I’d expected.

         After moving into my apartment, I’d kept up with working out and eating healthy for about two months. I heard lots of “ooh’s and ahh’s” from my roommates and friends, constantly asking me about the healthy food I was eating, but it was fun to show them that even a spinach smoothie could taste great! As the semester went on, homework began to take over and the winter laziness crept up on me. By the time winter break came around, watching what I ate became a distant memory and working out was something I did “when I had time” (and who really has time when they don’t want to make time?!).

         With my “after” picture in mind, I was determined as ever to go back to school and make the most of second semester. After meeting with Jillian over winter break, I was rejuvenated and motivated to see results. I’ve been back for about a month now and, with Jillian’s support, have already lost close to 5 pounds!

         Jillian’s endless recipes not only taste great, but are fun to make and easy to share. If you want to Eat More & Weigh Less, TheFittChick is the person to call.”
