It's been 10 years since I started my initial weight loss journey from that fat, sad, angry girl on the left, and 5 years since I finished my first weight loss journey where I lost 80 pounds using Turbo Fire. That was me on the right, happy, fit, healthy, and FERTILE for the first time in my life.
And then came baby #1!
I got pregnant, and thought I'm going to rock this fit mom thing, until the doctors said, hey, you're a high risk pregnancy, you need to be on bed rest. So I watched my diet, and only gained 35 pounds, half of which I promptly lost when I gave birth to our son.
Fast forward a bit, 1 year of sickness and infection after my emergency c-section, I put on 50 pounds (total) an additional 35 from what was left after I had Jack. I was left looking almost as bad as when I first started beach body/turbo fire. I topped out this time at 238 pounds. I slowly started taking my health back after a heart scare, I started walking 3-10 miles a day, depending on the day, slowly building my heart health back up to where it should be. Then I saw ONE more video from my now coach Hillary Kelly Plauche, that just clicked for me, and made me think, I want that. I want to be the healthy Kat again, I want to be my best for my boys. (Husband and child) and I want be a beach body coach again.
So I joined Beach Body again under my coach Hillary... she gave me wonderful pointers, and supports me, and I bust my butt a couple hours a day...
I am just amazed at the fact that people are really connecting with me and my videos and that I only put in 2 hours of work a day, 14 hours a week, I workout, talk about it on social media and drink chocolate shakes for a living, and it's working!
I've dropped 7 inches in 2 weeks of using PiYo and Cize and I'm starting to feel strong again, like I used to feel before all the bed rest and sickness.
I am so excited to see where I will be in a few years, and I'm excited to share my 2nd journey with you again!
