When I started with WAG, my goal was pretty straight forward and simple. I wanted to get back to my pre-baby weight or close to it and I wanted to feel better about myself after having my son 4 months earlier. I stated that I "knew" my body would never be the same and I was ok with that. 7 months later and I can say with confidence that my body is not the same as it was pre-baby...it's totally different! I am leaner, I am doing things in the gym I wasn't able to do before, and I have more energy!
Along with feeling and looking totally different, my goals my changed as well. In the beginning I was really just trying to get by with my numbers, which I'm sure drove my poor coach Alexa crazy lol. Now I feel like I have really embraced the program and take so much pride in planning my meals, tracking and meeting my numbers. Not only does it make my week go better but it has had such a positive impact on those around me. I have found myself reaching and setting goals that I just "knew" I couldn't do after having a baby. The mental hurdles I have jumped with this program have just as big as the physical ones.
I have to say thank you to my awesome Coach Alexa! I have put her through the ringer with some of my non so great weeks and my protein issues but she kept at me little by little. I wish I could meet her in person to express my thanks for her constant drive to make me better. Great coaches aren't just cheerleaders, sometimes they makes you feel uncomfortable and push you to places you were reluctant to go. Alexa has done all of that for me and I can't thank her enough. I know I wouldn't not be feeling so great right now without her words of encouragement and little pushes each week.
The last thing I want to say for anyone reading this is just close your eyes and jump in. Somedays won't be easy, somedays will be really hard. But anything that is worth while is hard at times. You are worth investing in. When I started this I just wanted to feel a little better and lose a little weight. Now, my goals are so much bigger and brighter than that...and I have WAG to thank for that.
