I'm going to get GUSHY
(From archived lianprice.com blog, circa 2014.)
Hey Fit Fam!
I had to write to you on this lovely Monday morning about a very special online coaching client of mine. She absolutely deserves some serious recognition, as this Bride-to-be went from 120 lbs. to 108 lbs. in 5 months!! So allow me to get gushy for a second because results like these are why I do what I do! :)
This gorgeous bride-to-be had every excuse in the book to stress out and not lose weight. She has a multiple-hour, interstate commute to work, tons of traveling forcing her to live out of a suitcase half the time, roommates whose eating habits were less than stellar, and of course, the chaotic part-time job of planning a wedding!
Yet this kick-ass client went ahead and lost over 11 inches combined between her waist and her hips. She gained a ton of strength and endurance (that she noted she hadn't been able to experience since her college soccer-playing days,) toned up her entire body, and raised her metabolism back up so high that her seamstress literally told her: "Stop losing weight! I physically can't take your dress in any more!"
The best part about all of this:
Did she look absolutely STUNNING on her wedding day? YES. Was she a total hottie on her honeymoon? Check out the pic below of her in Bora Bora, but let me go ahead and answer that: YES!!
But I am most proud of the fact that she has now ingrained healthy habits into her daily routine, which have become her NEW NORMAL.
She doesn't have to kill herself in the gym for 2 hours each day. She just has make she sure she fits in a quick, hard-hitting efficient workout for the majority of the days in each week.
She isn't limited to eating only chicken, oatmeal and asparagus, like so many people believe is the only way to stay lean. (ughhh. Insert un-smiley face.) She can eat what she is craving on that particular day and maintain a great balance because she has learned to listen to her body and feed it what it needs.
These habits and this new physical intuitiveness is what is going to help her stay under 108 lbs. for life. Because in my opinion there is NO SUCCESS IN TEMPORARY RESULTS. THE ONLY TRUE SUCCESS IS THAT WHICH IS LASTING AND SUSTAINABLE.
So without further ado, I give you Kristy!!! :)
Quote from Kristy:
“I started to feel very sluggish, overweight and extremely unconfident every day when I woke up. When I would look in the mirror I felt unattractive and disgusted with the way I looked and felt. So I reached out to Lian and asked for help.
I figured this was going to be a challenge because I'm from NJ so all of our communication was phone/online based. I explained to Lian my current situation and how I felt and together we came up with a solution that ultimately was very rewarding. Lian had me set goals and cheered me on to my success to the very end. I started out at over 120lbs and ended at a whooping 108lbs! I went from a size 4 in pants to fitting into a size 0! My overall health has changed as well as my physical appearance and made me feel more than confident and elegant on my wedding day as well as my honeymoon.
I've worked with trainers in the past, but Lian's motivation to want to help people and help them learn and live a healthy lifestyle was something I've never experienced before. The workouts were diverse and fun and of course challenging but after every workout I felt 100x better about myself.”
