We all have our own opinion of what our goals should be. Sometimes it includes the number on the scale, the efforts we have placed into our actions and sometimes it’s just about feeling more comfortable in our own skin. Everyone has a story to tell and for those that feel comfortable sharing it, we welcome it. Your journey, your struggles, your success can be inspiration to others or the push they need to get them started.
Our first ~ She Believed She Could, So She Did ~ story that we want to share is about Anwar. She has made a remarkable difference in her life and transformed herself into a women that she was longing to be.
From our Metcon30 program to Boot Camp and our Nutrition program, Anwar is a result of what happens when you don’t give up and when you don’t allow yourself to take ‘no’ or ‘I can’t’ for an answer.
I had reached a point in my life where I knew if things didn’t change for me then I would only continue to suffer. I was struggling with my weight and it felt like the numbers on the scale kept getting higher. I was depressed, tired, I had no energy to go out and I was always sick. I couldn’t even look at myself in the mirror, but when I did – I would cry. This is not the person I wanted to be. I even had people around me asking why I kept gaining weight. Around the time when I was at my heaviest of 278lbs I finally made the decision that I had had enough.
I joined Integrity Fitness in 2015 and that’s when things finally started to change for me. I started off with the nutrition program and slowly worked my way into the Metcon30 program and then into the Boot Camp program.
I have now lost over 100 pounds in almost 2 years and everything that I once suffered from is no longer an issue. I have energy, I feel confident, I love going on vacation and most importantly I am happy to be able to inspire the people around me. While my weight loss journey is not done, I am still working hard towards the goals that I set for myself. I continue to attend boot camp classes anywhere from 5-7 days a week and I use the nutrition meal plans as a guide to help me stay on track.
If I could give one piece of advice to others who are in silence and suffering, I would tell them to never quit. We all have to start from somewhere and if you stick with it you will see changes and you will want to keep on going.
