The Final Phase…
This is the final stretch. Brandi and Michelle are nearing the end of their 12 month Body Transformation challenge. Brandi set out to lose 200 lbs and Michelle 100 lbs. The ladies are in the the most imporant, and hands down the most difficult phase of their transformation, the final phase. Brandi and Michelle have had two very successful and rather different transformation stories thus far. Both ladies understand that the more weight you lose the harder it becomes to use it! I am extremely proud of them and now they are presented with a new challenge…a 90 day stretch to finish stronger than they started!
I got a chance to sit down with each gal and interview them about their last 9 months. Brandi and Michelle have both accomplished so much on their journey. I am a very proud trainer on this day and to be writing this blog post with with all postive updates makes me one happy trainer!
She as lost 40 lbs in 9 months. Relative to other transformation stories that is just good and not great, agreed? That maybe be, but only if Michelle were in this alone. Michelle and husband J Sellers have lost a combine 100 lbs. over the last 9 months which is a huge success! Michelle was on a fast track to hitting the goal her goal of 100 lbs. in one year when she was forced to be sidelined when she suffered a pelvic displacement injury. Michelle’s hips and pelvis would grind together when she would make certain movements. It gives me chills to think about how bad that would hurt! She continued to push through it day after day, through sweat and tears, but finally we were forced to shut her down. Michelle’s physical therapist, chiropractor, and I came together and decided it was time to get her healthy and put her intense transformation on hold!
Michelle has been rehabing for the last 8 weeks and will continue for 2-4 more weeks! That is more time down than most knee surgeries so you know how bad the situation was! She is very discouraged that she cannot maintain the workout regiments but she has been steady on her Shaklee Turnaround Kit to still lose weight! I keep telling Michelle that the hard part is over! You already committed yourself, you and J have lost 100 lbs. together in the last 9 months while juggling 3 little ones! This isn’t just about weight, this is about a lifestyle Michelle and J have committed to together. Not only did I want them to reach their weight loss goal, but I also wanted them to TRULY change their life to be around for their children and grandchildren.
Michelle and J and achieved great things and they will continue to dedicate themselves to a health lifestyle. We have 90 days left and Michelle plans on coming back stronger than ever! I know we WILL finish stronger then we started!
Brandi and I set out for a complete body transformation and it has been nothing short of that! In the last 9 months, Brandi has lost a total of 145 lbs. which equals 40% of her original body weight of 376 lbs.! Ever seen Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition?
