Liz lost 18 pounds on her Everlasting Nutrition journey! Here’s her story!
“I have been doing CrossFit for nearly 2.5 years. I didn’t see any results and just didn’t feel good about myself. I realized that my lack of motivation was affecting my lifestyle. When they say “you are what you eat,” I took it personal and actually thought as long as I work out 3-4 times a week I can eat what I want. I partially blame my weight on my 3rd pregnancy because I have 2 girls (25 & 17 years old) and I finally had a boy, emergency C-section because he weighed 9 lbs 9 oz. I had gained 30 pounds but was blessed to have a healthy baby.
I decided to give nutrition a try because nothing else had worked and I was going into depression. I stopped playing pick-up soccer, didn’t like to run, and spent time sitting on the couch watching inspirational shows about people doing what I WANTED to do be healthy!
I think my breaking point was letting my anger take over my happiness of doing things that I once enjoyed.
When I heard that many CFE members had done the nutrition plan, even the Sport competitors, or what I like to call them RX members – I had no idea they did it too! I had no idea that you don’t have to look unhealthy to want to be around for your family and live a healthier lifestyle. That’s when I realized I wanted to make a change!
The first month of logging in food intake was not the easiest thing to do especially when you don’t like to track your weight or weaknesses. I found that each week the instructions were helping me to do more and it motivated me to figure things out and follow the plan. I certainly needed that push from the TEAM (Morgan and Michelle, Joey’s ecstatic energy, the 5:30am CREW and Crossfit Everlasting MEMBERS! KUDOS to ALL of you!)
My pants feel loser, to where it’s no longer a snug fit, unless I want them tight on a Friday night LOL! When I go to work I ditched the soda and take A LOT of water breaks. In fact, my dept. drinks water with me to help encourage me to continue the healthy lifestyle changes.
I stopped worrying about how I look and focused on how I feel and what I can improve on at CrossFit. I am so VERY, very thankful for CrossFit Everlasting as they have made me a better person.
If you want something, you have to go out there and work for it and I did but I am not done!! I plan to continue eating healthier, exercise often, and focus on losing the flab and building my abs before 2020!”
