My name is Joanie and I will be turning 40 next month. I was excited to write a testimonial because I want it to inspire others who may be like me…too modest to put their pics out there for everyone to see.
But we are such a visual culture that we need to see pics to believe that we can change our physical bodies.. I have had three full term births. I tried to have my “cake and eat it too”. In other words, I expected change in my body by still eating fast food and all the processed stuff too.
NJ’s nutritional guidelines in the 4 Week Jump Start really clicked for me. This for me, was a transformational journey with ups and downs. But once you understand that this is for a lifetime, the decisions of what you do gets easier.
You’ll realize that fast food does not have a place in your daily diet, saying no is okay, and eating the right things can change not just you, but the life of your family. And my family means the world to me, and for them it’s worth eating clean. Thank you for investing the time into creating this accountability group; my deep appreciation.
14 lbs GONE!!! Meet Erin, down 14 pounds and 14 inches!
In Erin’s words: “I’m 43 years old, I have three children; ages 9, 12 and 15. I have tried MANY different diets over the past 10 years. Frustrated, I gave up. It did not seem worth all the cost and effort it took.
I felt better, but was stuck in my weight loss journey. I remember desperately trying to figure out what I was doing wrong. Was I not eating enough with all the exercise? Was I in starvation mode?
I went to the doctor for the third time and had my thyroid tested, it was normal. Was I not eating the right combination? There were so many possibilities that could have contributed, but i felt lost as to where to find the answers.
After learning about Natalie Jill, I started her 4 Week Jump Start program. I feel that through Natalie Jill, I learned about macronutrients and how different body types need different amounts of macronutrients as well as the importance of the amount of each (protein, carb, fat) we should be eating.
I looked at my protein intake in 2013 and was only getting 40 grams of protein at the most. I looked at my protein intake while i was doing the NJ 4 Week and 7 Day Jump Start and I was getting between 115g and 140g of protein.
Once I did that, the weight started coming off. I have eaten healthy foods for a very long time, but I would eat a serving of nuts instead of just 8 nuts with a carb and a protein. I still have a long way to go, but I am getting healthier and losing the weight.
I feel that she made finding the answers affordable and available. She and her team are AWESOME!! They respond quickly to questions and guide you in the direction that will help you. It is not a one size fits all organization.
One of my favorite things about the accountability group was the diversity of the group in age, weight and fitness levels. Natalie Jill’s programs work for all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels.
I feel like Natalie Jill and her team are completely committed to helping everyone figure out what will work for them or what changes/additions they could make to help become successful in being ” Happy, Healthy and Fit.”
I love how “real” she is and how willing her team is to respond with suggestions to those struggling in their journey.
