results-candace-1My weight loss story begins at 200 lbs. Like many new moms my excuse for being over weigh was "well I just had a baby!" But my baby was 9 months old already. Lessening the validity of my excuse. I had finaly made the decision to change. I bought myself a WeightWatcher's membership for my birthday that month and followed it strictly. The pounds started falling off.

By the next february I was 135lbs. I had made it! I enjoyed my new self at this healthy weight for a few short months before finding out I was expecting my second baby!!! Having put forth all that effort in losing the weight gained from the first pregnancy I decided that was not happening again. I followed the plan all the way through the pregnancy and though I still gained 30lbs I was still 5lbs lighter then I had been prior to my first pregnancy!! I was highly motivated to get back into shape this time around.

This time around I challenged myself to a 10k run to get back into shape. This, along with the original WeightWatcher's plan that was tried, tested and true got me down to 135 lbs. Just 6 months after the arrival of baby #2! Great improvement!! But as time wore on I became less strict on the diet, though I always kept up the running. I was gradually gaining weight. About 15 lbs over 6 months, and I wasn't getting the tight and toned body that I wanted.

I decided again that something had to change. Then came Wrench Fitness. Reg put together a workout plan for me and it shocked me. I lifted as heavy as I could and yet got smaller!! AND minimal cardio!! Coming from a workout consisting of an hour and a half on a treadmil this was a very welcome change!! I was seeing results almost imediately. Just about every week I would notice a new muscle flex as I'd do random house hold chores or lifti kids in and out of the car. I was hooked. Reg continued working with me and making up subsoquent plans to further my progress. Though it has been about five and a half years in the making I feel proud of the body I have built. I believe the Wrench Fitness moto "Build the Body You Want" as it is so true. You are not just one day going to wake up with a great body. You have to work at it, and it takes time. From the start of my journey till now I have lost 73 lbs and 50" all together. Over 12" of that was in my belly alone!! I committed to my dicision and with help from great trainers I have now fulfulled one of my long time dreams, playing a competetive sport. I built myself up from being winded from climbing a set of stairs, let alone chasing my son around, to a competetive athelete, excelling in a full contact football league like the LFL. Lift big and be happy!!

Thanks Wrench Fitness!
