I dedicated myself to the last 12 weeks for a different kind of transformation. Most people go into this looking to change physically, but that wasn’t the case for me. And yes, the physical aspect was a great added bonus. But my ultimate goal was to transform internally.
Over the past few years I’ve STRUGGLED mentally with food. I always found it hard to find the perfect balance and had A LOT of anxiety and stress around food. I became obsessed and actually developed an eating disorder which I’ve never spoken publicly about. It went from a “once in a while” thing to a “daily” thing and then to a “multiple times per day thing”. My health was in jeopardy and I knew I had to make an internal change before things got out of hand.
So I decided to work with Erika as I have worked with her successfully in the past. She of all people understands how my mind works and with her insight she guided me to another successful transformation. What I love best about the 12 week challenge is that I never once felt deprived or an urge to binge eat. Over the course of time, we slowly increased my calories while watching my weight decrease. With a consistent strength training program and minimal cardio I watched my body take a different shape. I stated to Erika on day 1 that my ultimate goal was to feel like myself again. To find my long lost confidence. To be HEALTHY like I once was. We achieved all of this together as a team. AND did I mention that I accomplished all of this while being a vegetarian?!
I’m happy to say I’m going to continue on with a positive recovery and I have many more goals to reach in this journey called life.
Thank-you to Erika and the rest of my support system at Trench Fitness!
