We met May 21st, 2011, that was the best day of my life; that was day I met my best friend, Fiance & my #1 Fan. It was the Crawfish Festival in Spring, Texas, He was with his friends I was with mine if you let him tell the story he’ll say he “pulled” me but we both know the truth. He might’ve took his phone out but I put my number in it! By far that has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!!
It was Stephen’s idea, He was very frustrated with himself he knew deep down inside we weren’t giving 100% effort. September 28th 2016 he came to me and said “Babe today is the last day you will ever see me not striving to be the best I can be!” & He was determined to make our family and myself proud. To be an example for others. I instantly said we are in this together so lets shock the world together!
Stephen’s starting weight was 275 pounds, And his current weight is 215 pounds.
My starting weight was 185 pounds, And I currently weigh 152 pounds.
We started our transformation September 28th 2016, We made a commitment to work out for 90 days and here we are today with a combined loss of 93 Pounds
The hardest part about our journey were eating habits, Its a tough transition to go from eating fast food, drinking soda & eating anything in site to Meal prepping every week and working out everyday. The most important thing we’ve learned is anything you put your mind to you truly can accomplish it. Put In the work, believe in yourself and the “Sky Is The Limit For You!”
Our general health is amazing we have gone from not being able to run 1/2 a mile straight to training for our first 5K marathon this upcoming June. I would definitely say our confidence level is at a max right now; we never would have thought making a lifestyle would change the way we treated our bodies. Our relationship was already great with what we consider minor difficulties. With us having to rely on each other we began to see major improvements in our communication, trust and accountability. We are so excited for our special day June 10th 2017!!!
We helped each other everyday, when either of us were having a bad day, the other person uplifted the other and we always reminded each other why we started. We also got motivation and inspiration from other people that were on thier journey as well. Our favorites are 70lbs Of Life, Brix Fitness, Ash Pointe, Danny_Getsfit & Obese_to_Beast .
