How She Got Started
Like many people, Erica was looking to lose weight, tone up, and drop dress sizes, but she was feeling stuck and worried that change was impossible. “Before beginning my journey at Complete Fitness I had tried every fad diet out there and nothing worked. I was embarrassed to look in the mirror, wear a bathing suit and I hated shopping. My self esteem was at an all time low and my cholesterol was very high. I ate large portions of whatever I wanted and didn’t feel as though I could change that life style.”
Even after she began a program here, Erica admits that it hasn’t always been easy. “Since I started working out I have had some highs and lows, some struggles and some successes. It wasn’t until the last 3 – 6 months I really started to see a difference in my appearance and my attitude. I have lost 10 lbs, a little over 10 inches, and at least 2 dress sizes.”
“My advice to anyone who is on the fence about joining would be to JUST DO IT. You will thank yourself when you start to see your clothes get bigger and your energy levels go through the roof.”
Erica works out 3 – 5 times a week, including 3 classes with trainers here at Complete Fitness. She loves her favorite Advocare products, Spark, MNS3, and Catalyst.
Erika stopped drinking pop; she is focused on drinking more water. “I have learned to read labels and stick to portion sizes. I have also learned that healthy food tastes good and to enjoy vegetables, which for me was very difficult,” Erica has worked hard to get to this point. She’s stronger than ever now. “I have lifted more weight that I had ever thought possible. I don’t mind being called a beast every once in a while.” The best part? “I have more motivation than ever to keep going and reach the goals I have set for myself.”
