Lean out, while increasing strength
I’ve always struggled with my eating habits and body image. I had always felt “fat” and “big” and insecure about the way I looked, I would shelter myself behind food because I’d feel good while eating but then hate and regret everything after.
I decided to start WAG after trying other weight loss program. Meeting Adee changed my perspective, and helped me chase this “weight loss goal” one more time. I thought I tried everything possible; I would succeed for 2 weeks and the fail epically every time. I came to think losing weight wasn’t for me. That I was stuck at a certain weight and that was it, I was ready to settle.
WAG transformed everything. It isn’t like any other macro program. The community is amazing and encouraging. My coach helped me SO MUCH. She didn’t just give me numbers to hit, but things to reflect on, things to look for; this is what made the difference for me.
By the encouragement of my coach to set goals, and now, actually knowing where I want to go with this and WHY I want to do this, I found the will power I never knew/or even imagined I was capable of having. I started as a 75+ 168lbs the heaviest I’ve ever been. At first I struggled hitting my numbers spot on but my coach was so encouraging, and the Facebook group inspired me so much I started playing Tetris to make everything fit. By week 4 I had lost 8lbs, I was shocked; I’d never stuck to something for that long! Now I am finishing week 15, and down 18 lbs., ready to continue to love my body and feel safe in my own skin! EVERY WEEK IS A WIN FOR ME!! And I cherish that so much. I made my weight class dream for my first weightlifting meet and did not gain the weight right after! I am committed to my goals more than ever, I feel strong and full of will power and more than motivated. I know I have goals and dreams and in those days I feel like giving up, I look back to those to get up and push myself one step closer to them.
This might seem like a long shot but I want to stay lean, and so strong I can qualify for nationals. I’ve only been weightlifting for 8 months, but I know this is just the beginning of my goals, I feel more confident than ever.
