Sylvia's own words...
"I began the challenge on 1/3/17 and I I have lost 17 lbs! ( I still can't believe I am typing that. ) I haven't seen this number on the scale in years. And that's not for lack of "trying".
More importantly, the most incredible changes are things I can't take pictures of...For 6 years, I have been taking antibiotics on a monthly basis for issues with IBD. Since I began this lifestyle change, I haven't had to use them. My health is the best it's been in years and I feel happy and energized. I also am enjoying cooking the meals and literally savor every bite. My husband has even been eating healthier.
If your reading this and not sure if you can do it, you can!
Mark and Alli (and Janet for these amazing recipes)- I am not even sure how to say thank you. Thank you for sharing this with us and for making it easy to transition into.
Alli and the trainers- thanks for pushing us with each and every workout we do. The support inside the gym is a representation of what this gym is about. Stronger. Together.
I have to shout out my bestie in and out of the gym, April, for helping me stay the course and pushing me to be better and to all my GFit girls for always motivating and encouraging each other.
Sorry this was so long , thanks for letting me share !
April's own words...
"I began the Gfit flex macros program January 9, 2017. And if I am being completely honest I didn't have high expectations. I figured I'd do it for the six weeks and if I lost a few lbs that would be decent. The first six weeks were hard but I was starting to see little changes in my clothes, even though the scale wasn't really changing, and I decided to stick it out. Now here I am 7 months later writing this! To date I have lost 23 lbs, 3 inches in my chest, 4 inches around my waist, 2 inches in my hips and 2 inches in my thighs. I feel better than ever. I am happier, more confident, I have more endurance in the gym and most importantly I am full! The meals really are delicious (especially the quesadilla card😂)!!! My advise to anyone who has tried but threw in the towel is try it again!! And if you're a member and haven't tried the macro plan what are you waiting for??!!! Stick it out past the 6 weeks and get a partner to do it with bc I definitely could not have done it without mine. Syl, thanks for motivating and making me do things like up weights or run that last 200m. Seeing Syl hit her goal just motivated me more! The trainers at Gfit are simply the best ever, so motivating and positive! Alli thanks for what you have created at Gfit. It is truly something else!"
Karen's own words...
"I know I sent you pics awhile back but I have continued to work hard and make more improvements and finally was brave enough to send picture with my stomach showing. Even though it is pale it is definitely shrinking! Anyway, I can't say enough positive things about gfit. It truly has been life changing. I joined in September 2016 after much encouragement from my sister and cousin. It was so out of my comfort zone but each time I came I could see myself getting stronger and fitter. I began the nutrition program on January 1st and that is the day I took my before picture. Since then I have lost 40 lbs. and a total of 21 inches!! I have learned so much since joining gfit and I am doing things I never thought would be able to do. My husband has also been following the nutrition program and has dropped 50lbs. My kids ask me what I do at the gym and say "Wow Mommy, you have muscles!" I feel better than I ever have! Gfit has truly been life changing and I look forward to becoming stronger and fitter with my gfit family!"
