I joined Coach Angela just 7 months ago. I relocated from Illinois where I was working with a personal trainer and knew I wanted to stay in that type of environment. Although I was working with a trainer for almost a year before Coach Angela, the biggest piece missing was any type of nutritional guidance. This is the first thing that led me to fall in love with her program. I would have considered myself a “fad dieter” in the past, especially utilizing Weight Watchers. My weight fluctuated constantly eventually gaining 30 lbs., losing it, and then gaining it back within a four year period. Even in the times I was thin, I would have considered myself “skinny fat” because I wasn’t necessarily eating clean and healthy and my body was not in good shape.
I couldn’t be more grateful for finding her. I was hesitant at first to come in for an initial assessment because I was not sure what I would be getting myself into. I’m very thankful I made that jump because I have gained so much more than I would have ever expected when I first joined. The support and motivation is incredible from both Angela and the members I have been able to build relationships with. I no longer gauge my success by the number on the scale and have learned what it is to make a lifestyle change in eating habits rather than yo-yo dieting. I have never felt healthier, more physically fit, or mentally focused in my life. I want to thank my YFB family for their continued support; I would not be where I am without it.
I have hesitantly given a picture that compares myself exactly one year apart; the majority of the transformation occurring within the last 7 months.
