Leann's Health Transformation
Monday, September 28, 2015
January of 2015: I was fed up with the unhealthy way I was living my life. I couldn't tie my shoes without getting out of breath, I hated trying on clothes at the local outlet because nothing I tried on looked good on me, I felt guilty for never playing catch with my son because every time I did, I got so winded I had to sit down. I wasn’t the mom I wanted to be. I wasn’t the wife I wanted to be. I wasn’t the me I wanted to be. So on the first Monday of 2015, I began the CREATION Health program. I was energized with the positive attitude of the program. It seemed super easy and I had nothing to lose (but some unwanted pounds!). So I jumped in and decided to give the next eight weeks all I had!
From the very first day of the program I would log into my email to see what my goal was for that day. The first week was CHOICE. It was my choice as to whether I was going to let this program work for me! I knew I had to keep a positive attitude and avoid the negative things in my life, including fast food and anybody who wanted to stand in my way of a healthy life. I began logging my food into an online weight loss journal and began going to the gym at least 3-4 times a week. For ACTIVITY I also started Zumba on Saturday mornings and it was there that I realized that getting my health back was actually going to be fun! The following Monday, one week from my starting day, was my first weigh in and I was thrilled to see that I was already down 4 pounds in just one week. I had the CREATION Health program to thank for that! I was hooked. I tracked my steps diligently with my Fitbit, I made sure to get REST and to make sure my NUTRITION was within my calorie range. When the eight week program came to a close I was thrilled to say that I was down 22 pounds! It was a whole new lifestyle I was living.
Update: I am still living by the CREATION Health program. I have continued my lifestyle change and I am currently down 31 pounds! I have completed two 5K runs and have my first obstacle race in 2 weeks! I plan to continue using CREATION Health every day because it is a way of life for me now. I can now tie my shoes and not get winded, I have gained the confidence that I had lost and I have been the more active mom that my children deserve! I am getting my life back, one day at a time.
