It's almost been a year since I started coaching.
Coaching has not only been beneficial to keep me accountable but has also been very rewarding. Every person I coach has a different life story. Some have been active their whole life while others are just beginning their journey to a healthier life. I feel extremely honored that people let me into their lives and allow me to motivate and help them. Transformations I see are both both physical and mental.
Every Tuesday, I'm going to be highlighting a customer transformation for three reasons:
1. I'm incredibly proud of the person and their dedication.
2. It feels good when you're recognized for all your hard work.
3. I know they will inspire others who are looking to make a change.
Today's transformation is Stacie who like many is a mother, wife and works outside of the home. In April 2014, Stacie joined one of my free challenge groups and rocked it! She was not only in it 110% but was a motivator to everyone else in the group. There was never a point in the group where she made excuses as to why she couldn't exercise or eat healthy. Before I even had my girls off to school, Stacie had already posted a post-workout photo of herself.
We all have different challenges that we need to work through. Stacie's biggest barrier to getting to her ideal shape was her love of sweets. Instead of going all or nothing, Stacie began practicing moderation and control. She's set realistic goals and accomplished all of them. Since April, Stacie has participated in a team challenge and most recently a T25 challenge. Through each one, her results have been seriously A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!
I remember getting a note from Stacie while she was on vacation. She was so proud that she had fit into a size she never thought would fit. It's these intangible rewards that keep Stacie moving forward. Not only has she lost inches around her midsection but mentally she says she's found her self worth. I asked Stacie if she had any advice or a quote that continues to inspire her. I loved her answer...
I am so proud of this woman and can't wait to keep following her progression. She is the perfect example of not making excuses. Stacie set out to reach a goal and didn't let anything get in her way. She's not only a great inspiration to other challengers but to her husband and children.
