This before picture was 3 weeks post pardum (a 22 week loss of my son). I lost 2 pounds and 6 1/2 inches!
My journey with the 21 Day Fix started when I was carrying my son and waiting to give birth to him. At 16 week we found out that we were having a second pregnancy and baby that was affected with something called Short Rib Polydactyly Syndrome. This is an EXTREMELY rare genetic condition that is 100% fatal in the womb or within minutes of birth. I gave birth to him at 22 weeks. I plan to write a blog post on our experience, so stay tuned if you are interested in learning more.
During the weeks after having my son, Nate, I knew that my husband and I needed to make a positive change in our lives. Things were not going as planned in our lives and we were not in great shape like we used to be. We had fallen into a slump and I knew it was time to do something about it. Plus, I needed to find a focus to keep me from falling into a depression after my 3rd loss and 2nd mid-trimester delivery. That is when I came across the 21 Day Fix and the Beachbody coaching opportunity. The main thing that I want to say is that both this program and coaching opportunity have CHANGED. MY. LIFE.
3 weeks post pardum, my husband and I started our first round of the 21 Day Fix. We really enjoyed it and I am so glad that we did the program together. It really made it easy to stay on track and to stay motivated. When I ordered my program, I had NO intentions or interest in being a Beachbody coach. I even called and cancelled my Shakeology autoship before I had even tried it, as I was certain that I was not going to pay that much money each month for a shake. Boy was I wrong! That is when I was connected with my coach, Leslie. I watched a few videos on the business opportunity and I completely fell in love with the opportunity and Shakeology! At that moment, I knew that I was meant to help people reach their health and fitness goals, and that I was meant to be my own boss and run my own business! So I dove ALL IN! All in with the 21 Day Fix and all in with the business.
Over the next 3 weeks I continued to follow the nutrition plan with NO cheating, did my workouts everyday, and drank a ton of water! Then it was results day. To be honest, the morning that I weighed myself and did my measurements I cried for over 2 hours. How could I have only lost 2 pounds? I did everything right! And then reality set in. Not even 6 weeks earlier I gave birth. My hormones and my body still needed time to get back to “normal”. When I looked at my before and after pics I could totally tell a difference! From that point on I embraced my results and decided to be proud of what I had accomplished. Plus, my husband lost 13 pounds! How can seeing my husband transform before my eyes be anything but positive? His blood pressure even went down to the normal range instead of being high like it had been for the past year! We decided to go straight into a round of the 21 Day Fix Extreme after just taking the weekend “off”. Be sure to check out our 21 Day Fix Extreme results here.
As I said earlier, the 21 Day Fix is truly a life-changing program. If you follow it and stay committed, it WILL work! It makes nutrition easy. There is no calorie counting, no weighing your food, and no guessing. The simple color coded containers make it simple for anyone to be able to lose weight and keep it off. My favourite thing about this program is that it is NOT a 3 week diet, but it teaches a lifestyle change. The 21 Day Fix and Shakeology are a small investment to pay for being healthy and happy and making such a positive change in your life. Trust me, you will not regret it!
