I joined this community about 6 months ago in hopes of finding something that I could stick with to regain my health back. I knew absolutely nothing about nutrition, exercise, or the human body and felt soooooo lost. I was depressed, HUGE, bloated all the time, embarrassed, ashamed, etc. and mostly angry because I let myself get to that point. I had hit rock bottom and then kept falling. Not only physically, but mentally also. Once I met my coach and all the other challengers in our community, I literally instantly felt like someone finally turned my light bulb on. I felt so at home. Like I knew these people for years when I had in fact just met them. The meal plans are simple enough for me to follow and the workouts are done at home. This was something that was important to me because living in such a tiny community, I was not going to go to the gym to have a high school reunion feeling as bad as I did. Since joining this community, I have learned that being healthy is not only a physical thing. Keeping your mind healthy is just as important and since then, I have been able to see the world in such a happier and more positive way. This group provides me with endless knowledge on bettering myself and others, non stop motivation, and the support is seriously overwhelming… in a really good way. I have never felt so much love from so many people in my entire life. I no longer feel alone. I no longer feel lost. I no longer feel like I’m destroying my body, but fueling it. And I could not be more thankful for my coach grabbing ahold of my hand and showing me that I deserve to be HAPPY AND HEALTHY!! And I couldn’t be more thankful for this community because you all literally saved my life. I can’t imagine where I would have ended up if I continued on the path I was on. I am now down 40 pounds, smile every single day, and have the positive mind set I always wanted to have but never knew how to get back. I could never express how grateful I am.
