Last summer, I met Jacquie, one of our gym members, when she was helping put together a health fair at the company where she works. I’d previously seen her working hard in the gym in the wee hours of the morning and when she won 2 personal training sessions at that health fair she decided to work with me. I’m giving you the back ground so you know how little I had to do with her success. She needs to be given serious credit.
I saw Jacquie again last week. She was positively glowing. It wasn’t hard to figure out why when she stopped me and said, “Guess what?! I’ve lost 70 pounds!!!”
“Oh my god, that’s awesome!” I told her.
“60 was amazing but seeing 70 pounds gone made me cry. I’ve got about 60 pounds to go but I’m so happy!”
I hadn’t really been following her progress so I asked her how long she’d been working on the weight loss.
“14 months. Slow and steady, about 5 pounds a month. And I really had to do both the food and the exercise. It doesn’t work any other way.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself. Way to go Jacquie!
