Bridal Weight Loss Success Story
Introduction from Grass Fed Girl:
I set up a shopping tour at the grocery store with the lovely bride, Athena so we could get her diet on track for her upcoming wedding. At first she seemed to be confused by all the conflicting diet info she had read or seen on TV in the past. I quickly set her straight about what is really healthy (not low fat starvation diets)!
I think seeing all the food in the shopping cart made my advice tangible and applicable for her day to day life. She really took our session to heart and next thing I knew she sent me these amazing photos of her beautiful wedding. I am so happy that she wanted to share her story to help other brides who may try to lose weight in an unhealthy way.
From the Beautiful Bride:
In July 2011 I was going through my photos from a friend’s wedding when I came across one in particular that amazed me! I saw how much weight I had gained and how unattractive I thought I looked at 39 years of age. I told myself there’s no way I could look like that for my 40th in May and for my wedding in October of 2012. I knew I had to take action and fast!
I had already planned on attending a Wedding Faire in the Bay Area in August 2011 and I was fortunate enough to come across “The Bridal Fitness Coach” booth. I entered a raffle for (8) private training sessions with Tammy Foxx and (1) nutrition consultation with Caitlin Weeks.
However, I didn’t want to wait to see if I won or not so I purchased (8) training sessions with Tammy just a few days after the Bridal Faire. A week later I found out I had won the raffle! Instead of revoking (8) training sessions I had purchased I managed to keep the whole (16) as an incentive. Although the training helped me to kick start my weight loss, it was honestly my change in diet that truly allowed me to get to my main goal of looking fantastic at my wedding.
One Hour Changed My Life:
I asked Caitlin if she could meet me at a local Molly Stone’s Grocery to educate me on what foods to buy and what to avoid. Just an hour of Caitlin’s time changed my life. My strong will and trust in what Caitlin was teaching me is what led me to my end goal.
I saw noticeable changes in my energy by changing my diet and becoming more active. I didn’t huff and puff when I walked upstairs anymore. My vitamin D deficiency resolved itself and my skin started to glow from eating lots of nourishing food. I felt great for the first time in a long time!
The before and after pictures are proof in the change of weight, inches, etc. I was a size 8 in the before photo (top left) and at my wedding I was a size 2/4. I went from 135 lbs to 105 lbs!! I truly felt like a princess on my wedding day and I didn’t mind that all eyes were on me!
After the Wedding:
And now I can honestly tell you that since 10/14/12 (the day after my wedding), I let my hair down a little. I went back to the carbs, sugars, etc that I avoided for 14 months and have gained back 7 lbs… just like that! But do you blame me? 14 months of following Caitlin’s advice to look good and feel good, well, sometimes you miss the bad food. LOL!
So, yes, I’m only human and gorged on french fries, pizza, hamburgers, pasta, sodas, etc. My body hated me the 1st month and then got use to my intake of bad food.
I will be going back on Caitlin’s advice this month as I wold love to lose those 7 lbs again. I currently do not like the way I feel or look, so, I will begin taking out the bad food once again. Though this time, I know I can do it without any issues. It is a new year and I can have a fresh start on my health!
