I think I’m a pretty normal person- a busy job, kids, household chores, and there’s always the commute. A year after having a baby I was still a size 16. My personal trainer Brock, suggested giving TNT Nutrition a try noting that 80 percent of weight loss is diet. After another six months and a conversation with TNT Nutrition coach, Shelby, I decided to give it a try. I was not optimistic. I’ve been eating food for more than 40 years- I’ve know how to eat right. Right?
The first week was the game changer for me. Shelby asked me to log what I ate for a few days. I thought I knew how to eat -balanced diet, carbs, proteins. Turns out I was watching what I ate- literally. I noticed a lot of mindless eating. Skipped or missed meals that left me starving and caused me to overeat in the evenings and eroded my weight loss efforts at the gym. I was eating about 2800-3000 calories a day and mostly at night. I got my nutrition plan. My daily goal- 1451 calories. HOLY FRITTATA!
Presented with the data, I had a choice to make- get comfy I’m my size 14 pants or do something. I committed, for me and for my family. I took a deep breath and began my first week. I put the family on notice and I bought different things at the grocery store-like kale, took food to work that I can have on hand so I wouldn’t skip meals, and I starting carving out time to eat and that’s all I would do when its food time- there’s no TV, lunch meetings, or online shopping. During this session there were lots of temptations between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. The pounds started to melt off; which kept me going and the weekly phone calls, recorded measurements, and nutrition plan kept me honest and accountable to myself. After only 12 weeks I’ve lost 26.2 pounds and am now a size 8. I’m so grateful for the support of my family and the TNT Team.
Note from her Coach:
“I’m very, very proud of Barbara. Barbara has been so successful because she pushed herself into the right mindset. She made the decision to see her nutrition as a priority, to be open and ready for change, and take each day and opposing situations as opportunities to learn. She was very involved with questions and she was a great listner! One can receive a nutrition plan and follow it, but that in itself is only 1 small piece of the large puzzle. No one can achieve sustainable weight loss unless their mind is in the right place. I have no doubt that Barbara will never have to worry about her weight again. Congrats Barbara!”
