Rachael’s Story

SamanthaSharesRachael never had a weight problem…until she had kids. Then all bets were off! Her body had changed and she did not know what to do.

She had been eating poorly and was gaining weight. She was unhappy and knew she had to take action.

Rachael knew the owner of Mind Body and Soul Fitness and reached out to her. She knew she needed help to get to her goal.

She joined boot camp and started the food plan at the same time. In a month, she dropped 20 pounds! To date, she has kept that weight off for two years and counting.

Rachael now knows what she can and cannot eat. She learned how her body metabolizes different types of food. She knows to plan her day around what food she will eat and if she is planning a meal out, she takes that into consideration with her other meals.

Having a personal weight loss coach really helped her. Knowing her coach had been in her shoes gave her the credibility she needed to trust her. Being held accountable for her choices and her meals made all the difference to Rachael and really helped her drop the weight.

At one point, Rachael was too focused on the numbers on the scale. She was letting them dictate how she felt. So she took a step back and stopped journaling. She knew if she slipped up, she would have to start journaling again. That was all she needed to know to stay good!

“Trust in yourself” and you will see results.

Rachael still drinks her water. She feels that it flushes out the occasional bad meal.

One of the main lessons Rachael learned was to put herself first. “If I can do it, anyone can!”

She is still active in boot camp and attends two days a week for an hour each session. She loves the class and the way it makes her feel. She also feels the right instructor can make a world of difference.

Rachael is no longer afraid to try new foods. She is proud that she is stronger for herself and her family. She has confidence now that she never had before. She is empowered to do and be more. She is able to think and be positive.

Even though it has been two years, the journey and the struggle is just as real to Rachael today. It has to be!
