When I was approached by Lucille Roberts, I was ecstatic. I was at a place in my life where I knew I needed to make some lifestyle changes. I had recently turned 40, quit my job, and started my own business. I needed energy if I wanted to succeed. I also needed the confidence-booster. I felt and looked frumpy. I could no longer say I had Latinalicious curves; they were straight-up chichitos/love handles! I needed a makeover, and Lucille Roberts was the place to get it. They provided me with a nutritionist, a trainer, and usage of their gym. I was excited! I was and am a Latina On a Mission – the name of my blog, btw!
I have to admit, it hasn’t been easy. Over the last four weeks, I’ve had to cancel 2 sessions because of client meetings. I also avoided keeping a food journal like the plague. I was sabotaging my own progress! Yet, eventually I got into the swing of things. I listened to my nutritionist and made some small changes. The changes were small enough to lead me in the right direction, without making me feel deprived. I also started tracking my calories with my phone. This kept me accountable.
I’ve also been meeting with a Lucille Roberts trainer twice a week. Our sessions have been INTENSE. I leave feeling sore but accomplished. I’m sure its because I’m becoming reacquainted with muscle groups I haven’t used in ages! Thankfully, BENGAY and a long, hot shower does wonders for relieving those aches.
When I started the program, my goals were to lose 30 lb., to get more energy, and to tone up. After 4 weeks, I’ve lost 7 lb.! I didn’t hit my 10 lb. goal, but I’m heading in the right direction. I feel stronger. I feel energized. And best of all, I’m no longer fighting myself. Weight loss is a decision. I’m choosing to lose the weight for ME, because I’m worth it…and so are you!
Let’s talk! What is/was the biggest obstacle you had in getting to the gym?
