I started with Fitness Asylum in the Spring 2018 12 Week Body Challenge. I had been stalking the FA facebook pages and was in awe of all the inspiring stories but I was still not sure FA was the place for me. You see I had been trying so hard my entire life to be the “perfect” size, my weight has not fluctuated in small increments but large swings (as low as a 10 to as much as a tight size 20). My eating was uncontrollable, I was very sedentary and had no motivation. I was at a low point and thought, nothing could work for me. Then a friend who had much success with FA said “what do you have to lose? It will be life changing”! So here I am, two body challenges later and wearing a loose size 8! My friend was right, FA has definitely changed my life but not just in a physical way. I have so much confidence and control over things I thought I could not control. I feel strong and healthy for the first time in my life. I feel like I set an amazing role model for my children. Looking back, I believe if I hadn’t taken that leap into FA, I would still be spinning my wheels trying to get healthy on my own. FA literally has changed my entire life in such amazing ways, I am beyond grateful.
