44 Pounds and Lifting Heavy Shhh!
By Michael Harland
Meet Stacy, she’s a fairly new member and has trusted us on her health and fitness journey. Let’s start with what she said in a recent email to Mike during the Summer Slimdown:
“The day of my orientation I had come from my doctor’s office, and my weight was 281. 44 pounds down total!
And I deadlifted the heaviest kettlebell yesterday. I was pretty amazed I could even lift it, let alone do 3 rounds of reps.”
Pretty incredible, right?! What I like best is the confidence she now has, the real understanding of how to continue seeing progress, the increases in strength gains, and that she is fully committed to becoming her best self.
Now, let’s talk about what happened over the last 5 weeks. Stacy started the Summer Slimdown with me at 251.9 pounds and dropped all the way down to 237.5 in 5 weeks! She checked in with me every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and stayed on track most of the time. I say most of the time because I encouraged the participants to have cheat meals and enjoy themselves occasionally. She did just that, got right back on track, and was able to see great results.
Awesome job, Stacy! And I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
