When I first began this journey, I was so sick. My unhealthy habits had gotten so bad that I had horrible acid reflux. I was coughing and throwing up almost every day. I had gotten pneumonia from it and the acid started to burn my vocal cords. I even had two ulcers in my stomach. The eating was causing me stress and the stress was causing me to eat. It was a horrible, vicious cycle that I couldn’t control. Every time I tried to be healthier I would slip up and then give up. Coming to Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios was one of the best decisions I could have ever made. They not only taught me how to eat properly, but to not be so critical of myself. This weight-loss journey was not only about losing weight, but about finding balance, and I’m excited to see what’s next.
I first came to JWFNS because I had gained more weight over the winter than I normally do. Initially, I just wanted to fit into my jeans and get ready for summer. After six weeks of being on the meal plan and having remarkable results, the RDs at JWFNS suggested I compete in a bikini competition. Under my RD’s guidance, I was ready for the stage at my first competition where I won First Place in Debut, First Place in Novice and First Place + Pro Card in Open. I have never looked or felt so healthy in my life! I absolutely love the way my body looks now and I have JWFNS to thank!
I came to my dietitian at the beginning of my weight-loss journey in February. I had told her that I was a repeat offender of diets and I had been scared by my last physical where my doctor said something had to change or I was going to have to take multiple medications for high cholesterol and diabetes. My dietitian really helped educate me on healthy foods. Each week she was a great motivator. I have lost a total of 64 pounds since February and she continues to be my advocate. I have enjoyed being a part of the JWFNS family and hope that I continue to celebrate my successes.
It’s been almost a year that I’ve been on the nutrition plan, and Jim tailors my plan around my goals. My first goal was to lose some weight. I was able to accomplish that and lower my body fat percentage significantly. My second goal was to run a marathon and get faster at running. I completed my first marathon in October of 2017. I have increased my half marathon Personal Record (PR) by over 5 minutes. I am getting faster all the time. I’m currently working on my third goal, which is to improve my physique, by adding more weights and gym time. My final goal is to compete in a Half Ironman (triathlon) in 2019. With Jim’s custom-tailored plan, in conjunction with my workouts, this is achievable! The nutrition plan is a lifestyle change and it’s something I can stick with.
