Transformation of the Day: Annette lost 24 pounds. Her journey started when she joined a local transformation challenge and won. By making better food choices, working out, and being consistent, she has transformed. She also became a certified personal trainer to help others reach their goals.
What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
2023 was an emotional and physical experience for me.
I decided to participate in a local The Biggest Loser Challenge. I applied myself and stayed consistent. Not only did I win the individual competition, but my team won as well.
Without the support of my teammates, my gym family, close family, and friends, I would not have made it through.
Maintaining a calorie deficit, drinking lots of water, minimizing eating out, training 6 days a week, and, most of all, mindfulness helped me stay the course.
Sometimes, things were so difficult that I was in the gym in tears. But I was there. I promised myself that I would not give up on ME and would not self-sabotage, which is something I’ve done to myself countless times.
But I was determined!!!
Fast forward to today, I’m in a better place mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. I’m now a Certified Personal Trainer, and I’m in a position where I am helping others. And, to be honest, they are helping me.
I even managed to slim down more since winning the challenge.
Never forget where you come from. Like I’ve always said, I was/am my first client, and I’ll continue to improve who I am and who I am meant to be. I AM ENOUGH!!!
