Gosh I can't tell you how much I LOVE these!!
We have another testimonial my friends!
This next testimonial comes from a good friend of mine. Never have I met someone more determined, and self motivated in my life! Not to mention her talents as a mother. She just finished writing a book! As in an actual book and has an agent looking at it as I type. So just ask me if I was surprised at how fast she lost her goal weight after giving her some eating and exercise tips. Yup, fast. And believe me, it has paid off-her bod looks fantastic! (I wish I had a full body shot of her) She was dedicated and is an awesome example of wanting something bad enough, and doing what you have too to get it! Way to go Miriah!!

"After I had my baby was the first time I got serious about losing weight. At first I got results from simple portion control, consistent exercise, and cutting out some sugar. But that only took me so far. I got stuck at about a size 8. So, with the help of Melissa, I made a few changes. First, I started switching up my workouts. Instead of just running every day, I added some aerobics, toning, sprinting, and other exercise routines between running days. Second, I became very strict with my diet. 1/2 C oatmeal for breakfast, whole grains and protein for lunch (turkey, chicken, fish), and more clean protein and a veggie for dinner. I also had to start recognizing fruit as a sugar, no matter how much I hated to :0( Another change I made was to start eating open-faced sandwiches cutting my bread intake in half. It only took a little over a week for me to get used to the diet change, and soon fruit really did start feeling like a dessert; something sweet, but not something I would want a lot of all the time. In about a month's time I went from a size 8 to a size 4. I've never been so excited to buy new pants as I was the day I realized all my pants were too baggy! I can honestly say I prefer to eat the way I do now. I might have a treat every once in a while, but I no longer crave junk food. If I can do it, anyone can! Simple changes like switching to skim milk, only eating low-fat mozzarella cheese, and eating white meats can bring huge results!"

Thanks again for the awesome motivation!

How motivating! I'm so excited for her that she's reached her goal weight! I'm still struggling with the whole food/diet thing. *sighs*
