Goal: Keep Up w/ My Kids and Be Around for a LONG Time
Time w/ RightFitt: 1 Year Achievement: Lost 64 lbs
Sharel's Story - Straight from the source!!
I was an active kid, growing up on a farm/ranch and playing sports. My Mom is an amazing cook, and she prepared hearty meals for a hardworking husband and four growing kids. I was always slim, because we worked off those luscious meals and baked goods.
In my 20s, I didn’t cook much, and loved rollerblading and taking various fitness classes with my friends after work. I was able to keep my body at a pretty steady place, though I wouldn’t say I was necessarily healthy.
Once I met my husband, I started cooking meals, eating out more often, and keeping up with his appetite. I know now that was too much for me. He had a labor-intensive job, and I sat at a desk all day.
I hadn’t been comfortable with my body and my health for a long time. After having my two kids, I really couldn't seem to lose the weight I'd put on. During the summer of 2013, I decided I was going to do it and I worked out religiously, usually 5–7 days a week. I thought I could keep eating the same types of food, and just reduce my portion sizes. It worked for the short term. I lost 10–15 pounds and was feeling better than I had previously. But when Fall rolled around and I got busy with schedules, I didn't have as much time to get the workouts in and the 10–15 pounds came back.
I wanted to keep up with my kids and their activities, and I wanted to be around for them for a LONG time to come. Approaching my 40th birthday, I knew I wanted to make a big change.
Fast forward to April 2014. A friend of mine was posting about feeling fantastic, losing weight, and getting healthy. She was using RightFitt and Herbalife and seeing amazing results. A new challenge was just beginning, and I jumped in with both feet. My shoot-for-the-sky goal was to lose 40 pounds before my 40th birthday in November.
So, results. I started in April 2014. After four months, I’d already reached my goal…I’d lost 42 pounds! I had to set new goals, and I kept going. After one year, April 2015, I had lost 65.0 pounds. I reached a weight that was completely healthy and comfortable for me.
I look better, but I can't stress how much better I FEEL. I am able to run, which I have not even attempted in years. I started going to barre classes and my body can do things I never even thought about before. I'm stronger and leaner and I can go out and play and do anything my kids want to do.
These stats outlining my one- year stats speak for themselves:
I lost 65.0 pounds.
My BMI decreased by 8.2.
My body fat was reduced by 23.0%.
My skeletal muscle increased by 10.4%.
My body age decreased by 28 years (from 46 to 18).
My visceral fat reduced from 7 to 3.
In total, I lost 62.25 inches!
I’m now over 600 days into this new lifestyle. I’m continuing to make the daily choices to keep up this healthy body. It’s not always easy. I am a homeschooling mom of two busy kids. We’re constantly running to Taekwondo, 4-H, the library, and many other activities. But I make the time to make sure that I don’t slide back into that unhealthy body that I wasn’t proud to wear.
