Today I share a client interview with you! Pam H. was so excited about her results she decided to share her thoughts. Her growth with CEF at her side is amazing, and her story will surely inspire you!!!
QUESTION 1: What made you decide to get a coach/trainer? What were your goals?
ANSWER: “I realized that I needed a coach/ trainer after I tried every diet,all different exercise tapes and joined gyms with no success. I would loose weight and gain it back and even more. I call myself a YoYo when it comes to my weight. I was sick and tired of being a YoYo. I came to the conclusion I wasn’t doing anything right. I was unhappy with myself, frustrated, and hated my self image. I realized the reason I was failing was because I could not commit to the hard work it takes loose and maintain weight loss on my own. I met Cindy and sign up for coaching.
My goals were to loose weight, look better, feel better about my self and get healthy.”
QUESTION 2: How much weight or inches have you lost overall, and over what period of time?
ANSWER: “I have lost 23 pounds, 8.5 inches and recently started tracking my body fat.I have lost 5 percent body fat .My weight loss has been over 11 months. My initial weigh in was in May and weight loss was slow. In December I buckled I followed the meal plan Cindy set for me, tracked and measured my food and met with Cindy every week to record my weight.This is when I really started loosing weight and my body started changing shape. Lesson to be learned when I listened to my coach that’s when I had the best results.”
QUESTION 3: What were/are your biggest fitness or weight loss struggles and how do you overcome them?
ANSWER: “My biggest struggle with weight loss is staying motivated for the long term weight loss and maintenance. So far I have been achieving this is is being surrounded by friends and family that are so supportive and encouraging me through this time.
I have my supportive coach gives me great suggestions for my meal planning and has encouraged me to try different types of exercise.
I joined a fabulous gym that offers a huge variety of classes.I never get bored with my exercise routine. I never thought I would say this but I enjoy and look forward to going to the gym.
I have been setting short term goals that helps me maintain positive attitude and keeps me motivated. I just completed a 60 day challenge I met my weight loss goal and exceeded.That made me so excited I am signed up in May for the next challenge.”
“I have another struggle which is a fear I will go off my diet by over indulging in the foods I crave like pizza or crackers and cheese and gain back what I’ve lost. The way overcome this is that I do not buy these foods routinely like I used to. If I really want something or for guests then I go out and purchase the day of gathering. If I’m out with friend and These foods are offered I ask my self do I really want that now? If my answer is yes than I try to eat smaller portion and if I do over indulge then I’ll go back track what I ate see how much I went over my plan. I recognize it and get back on track.”
QUESTION 4: What did you benefit most from with CEFitness specifically?
ANSWER: “I benefited most from coaching. I am so happy I was introduced to you Cindy, I know for a fact having a coach that is so supportive, encouraging and shows interest in me makes me feel great . Acknowledging my strengths and weakness and pushing me when needed has been key to my success .My body transformation is amazing to me . I am really happy I don’t hate my body anymore. I still don’t like to weighed in front of anyone but I don’t feel humiliated like I did when I first started.I feel so much healthier stronger and more confident about my self.
I felt when I joined CE Fitness I felt like I was part of a team. I feel like I learned from other members from reading post and getting together for an informational lunch.”
LAST ONE!!!: If you could give advice to someone new to fitness, what would you tell them that is important that you have learned on your journey?
“The most important thing I learned was be kind to yourself. Don’t hate yourself just realize sometimes you may need help from someone to accomplish you goals. Those people are out there they are coaches/ trainers.
I also would tell them the fitness journey is a life time journey start as soon as you can, setting short term goals will help you to succeed.Know that if you mess up don’t give up just acknowledge what you did and get focused again and keep going on your fitness plan. Make yourself the priority!!”
