I just want to say thank you! Thank you for getting me back on track, because before your challenge I had fallen harder then I ever thought I could. I had moved out to LA about a year and a half ago and I came out here the thinnest I had been in about 7 years. I was feeling young and sexy as ever. Then I became filled with the stress that moving out to LA alone can only bring. Working all the time as a nanny and just having a hard time making friends. Because LA is a city filled with way more fake then real by last december I had gained the 65 lbs and more that I had worked so hard to lose. By February I was back to the highest I’ve ever been. I actually got picked to film a show with Deepak Chopra on OWN, talking about my difficulties with my weight. After that I tried so hard to take what I had learned and do better. Then in April I started to basically binge it all the time and I could not quite. I would spend over a $100 dollars a week just on food. Literally spiraling out of control and then BET week you showed up on my Instagram and forever I feel changed.
As soon as the challenge started I went cold turkey on my binge eating. I then started to rebalance my whole life. I put myself on a budget, $35 a week for food and it had to be mostly fruits and veggies. Eventually by week four, I cut out all pasta’s and rices and breads, just basically anything starches. I also follow your sugar rule with my life.
Za, I think the reason your program/challenge works so well for me is because you don’t give a lot of restrictions but you do give tools and ideas to thrive. I have been on every diet on the planet and they all love to control, FBF puts you in control! I love that! The challenges every week were not my favorite but I loved them because they helped me set out of my comfort zone which actually helped me not get into a rut during the challenge. Overall the challenge is great, the group me chat is a brilliant thing!
It’s funny, I didn’t even know I was going to be featured on that show until a few weeks ago and it’s crazy because the day I saw myself crying on tv about my struggles was the final weigh in day for Challenge 21! I was just amazed to see how far I had come! God was so good to me by guiding me to you and FBF fitness! I am signed up in Challenge 22 and 23 too! So I am not stopping until I reach the finish line! Happier and healthier then I’ve been in a long time and I have you to thank!
