Pounds and inches are gone! DOWN 4” just in her waist! Meet Bridget! Learn how she DECIDED to change her story from over scheduled, overcommitted and feeling like she was failing to a positive SUCCESS story!
Pounds and inches are gone!
In Bridget’s words:
“I am someone who has never been proud of their body. Even in high school, when I was in great shape, I never felt confident enough to wear a bikini or anything remotely close to a bikini 😉
Fast forward twenty plus years, and like everyone else, I now have a busy life with a hectic schedule. I’m married, I work, and go to school.
And I have tons of hobbies and interests that I enjoy and keep me busy. My days are over scheduled and I often commit to more than what I can accomplish in one day.
Also, like everyone else, life has handed me challenges that I didn’t see coming and I have struggled. My struggle has been with unexplained infertility.
The massive feeling of inadequacy and unworthiness really took a toll on me both mentally and physically. Add on turning 40 and needless to say my body has changed. I started to carry fat around my thighs but especially thru my mid section, where it had never been before!! Hello … Cellulite!! Ugh
I used to go to the gym and workout. At the time I thought I enjoyed it, but really they were long dragged out sessions that often left me sore. And while I had some success, I didn’t enjoy the process. I think I thought I had to prove I was the toughest. And in some ways I was punishing myself.
Additionally, between the travel time to and from the gym, the long treadmill sessions and the time it took on the isolating weight machines I would be away from home at least two hours, if not more!
I would come home to my loving and supportive husband, who would say, ‘wow great job! You must have had a great workout!’ And my reply was always, ‘No, not all’. I also could never keep my grueling gym schedule going for more than a month or two, and I would end up feeling even worse about myself when I would inevitably fail. Something had to change!!
Luckily, I found Natalie Jill Fit on Facebook!! I followed to her YouTube channel, got my hands on her amazing workout DVDs and most of her ebooks 😉 She has inspired me so much. With Natalie’s help, I made the mindshift connection!!
This was huge for me!!
The best part is Natalie’s program is its doable! It is a Way of life that you can sustain for the Rest of your life. Yes, you can get in great shape with muscle definition at home in 30 minutes a day!! Yes, you can think positive and find solutions!
I now eat clean, in a bright uplifting color palette, and follow the The 7-day Jump Start – The Plan as a lifestyle. I unwind at night with hot green tea instead of alcohol and I don’t have cravings!!
Yes, my cravings for sugar are gone! I am no longer bloated, my pms is much improved and the way I feel about myself is so different !! I dress in brighter colors, I look at my life in a whole new way! I try to think everyday like Natalie has taught me….
1.) what is something positive I can Add to my day
2.) get your workout in, you do it cause you love your body
3.) if you have a bad or off day, that’s okay it’s not the end of the world. Get back on track tomorrow!
4.) set goals!! You can accomplish them!!
5.) PROGRESS IT !! – this goes for everything in life (keeping moving, keep challenging, keep learning, keep striving, keep Progressing!)
Take the leap….you have Natalie Jill – you’re in amazing hands !!
I can’t wait to someday share my ‘after the after’ pics!! You can do this!!”
