My entire life I have always struggled with my weight and was always a plus sized girl. At the height of my weight I was a size 18 and weighed just over 200 pounds. I was never an active person, I was always lazy. I watched a lot of TV and sat at the computer surfing the web for hours, along with eating a ton of sweets. When I was 15 I started dancing, I did tap, ballet, and jazz seven days a week until the day my dance studio closed down in 2004. I had lost some of my weight, but not a lot and once the studio closed down I went back to my old ways and became lazy again.
“This time I gained back twice as much…”
As I got older and reached my twenties I started partying all the time, I drank a lot of alcohol and ate a lot of bad food after hours (between 2 and 3am). During all of this I started working at Regency Sport and Health at the front desk and I met Joseph who was the TNT Fitnesstrainer at that location. I had spoke to him about how I wanted to lose weight and a group training program may be right for me. After my first class I fell in love with the program.
When I first started, I was still eating pretty terrible ( a lot of fast food was involved). Joseph told me about the TNT Nutrition program and I decided to give it a try. It was hard at first because I was not used to eating in a structured way and I was not used to eating healthy. I struggled, but I kept pushing and telling myself that it would all be worth it in the end. I stuck with the program and I saw the pounds and inches fall off. I eventually left the TNT Fitness program because I had switched jobs and moved, but I kept eating healthy using the principles I learned at TNT Nutrition. Now I am down to a size 4 and currently at 138 pounds. It has been two years since I first lost my weight and I have done everything to keep it off because I do not want to go back to the way I was before. I feel ten times better and I am more confident, I have tried eating something I used to eat (like cake or something from a fast food restaurant) but I feel so bad afterward that I know I will never eat that way ever again.
