“At 62, I am pain-free and healthier than I’ve ever been and I look forward to living my healthy lifestyle for years to come.”
MY TRANSFORMATION STORY
Name: Robin V.
My Story: I have struggled with my weight ever since I was a teenager and have tried many diet and exercise programs through the years. I am, by nature, a sedentary, food loving person so I always got off track and gained back the weight I lost and more. Almost three years ago, I was 60 pounds overweight with chronic back and knee pain and I decided it was time to make a real change in my life. My goal was to become healthier by losing some weight and exercising. I started with Weight Watchers and an in-home walking program. I was encouraged because I began to see results almost immediately and I became even more committed to eating healthy and working out consistently.
I love to cook and research taught me how to eat healthy without relying on a “packaged” program. Boredom with the exercise program I was using led me to search for other instructors. I ran across Jessica and clicked with her style immediately. I discovered her other DVDs and her YouTube channel and fell in love with working out for the first time in my life. When I started my journey toward health, I never dreamed I could lose 60 pounds but it happened in a little over a year as a result of my lifestyle changes and I have kept it off ever since. I owe a big part of that to Jessica because she’s such an inspiration and led me to try exercises I would have never considered before (such as barre, kickboxing, and yoga) so I never get bored. At the age of 62, I am pain-free and healthier than I’ve ever been and I look forward to living my healthy lifestyle for years to come.
My Favorite Workout (from the Total Body Transformation program): 360 Abs (a great combination of cardio and strength training with an abs focus).
My most exciting results: Seeing the changes in my body from eating healthy and working out consistently. I feel strong and energetic. The “Walk STRONG: Total Body Transformation 6 Week System” provides a fantastic mix of cardio and strength training workouts and I’m really excited to do the full 6-week program.
The best healthy living advice I’ve learned is: Start small. It’s great to set a long-term goal, but be sure to set short-term goals to get you there. Otherwise it may seem overwhelming and you might feel like giving up. Make lifestyle changes gradually and they will become permanent.
