DOWN TOTAL %:  3.5

INCHES LOST:  2.0       


A little over a year ago, my life looked a lot different. For the longest time, my life revolved around school and work. I would study/work literally all of the time, and I based my entire self-esteem on being successful in those arenas. What I now realize is that it was a way for me to feel like I was someone, and to ignore the real internal struggle I was having with myself. My social life was limited, and my physical health was somewhat shaky. Most of all, I was not happy. I came to the harsh realization that if I wanted things to change, I was going to have to actively take the steps to make it happen. Theresa, one of the Bfit trainers, has a saying that your ‘why’ has to be big enough in order to make a change. My ‘why’ was big enough in April 2014.

I found myself researching nutrition, and different exercise programs in order to get my body to a better place. I learned about Bfit on Facebook, and decided to give Teri a call. I remember the day I went to meet her, she was at her desk eating the Bfit turkey chili out of a red cup. She showed me around, and told me a bit about the program. After a lot of thought, I decided to join in April 2014. I knew the workouts would be hard, and I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to complete the classes. Likewise, I had my mind set that I wasn’t going to lift heavy weights. Initially, I did only cardio, as I was sure that was the best option. It took a lot of talks with Teri and many other ladies at the gym, before I finally saw the light. I learned about the importance of muscle and strength training. To say it took a leap of faith would be an understatement. I began to do more weight training, gained some muscle, and began to feel much better physically. Although I’ve gained muscle, it is not the only thing that I’ve gained by being in the program.

I’ve gained some amazing friends here, and they continue to inspire me everyday. The most important thing in life is the time we share with those who matter, and life is way too short to be consumed by standing in our own way, and doing things that do not make us happy. Additionally, people are seldom as critical of us as we are of ourselves. I hope that I do, or someday will, inspire my friends here the way they have me. For the first time in a long time, I’m truly happy. This program has added so much to my life, and I would not trade it for any other.
