My journey with SFC started a little over a year ago. I was so overweight after having my 2 kids and I had just had a consultation for gastric bypass surgery the week prior to walking into SFC. The doctor gave me all the paperwork to get the surgery…I just had to get all the testing done and I was ready to go. When I went home, I looked at my kids and husband and decided I needed to give weight loss one more try and give it my all with NO excuses before I were to go under the knife to loose weight.
So, I signed up for the New You Challenge and was so scared to walk in for the very first time. It had been a really long time since I had worked out, and I hated everything about cardio…so I was sure I was going to hate it, and probably give up and stop coming after a month. In fact, I did not buy any workout clothes or shoes or anything, because I knew the routine…I would spend the money, and then stop doing it shortly after. I was not falling for it again!
But something crazy happened for the first time in my life. I LOVED going to the classes. I loved learning everything from the coaches and I loved the people that were in the class with me. We were all beginners and we were all in it together. I have always hated working out and doing cardio (and when I say hate, I really mean HATE) but I found myself looking forward to working out every day. One month turned into 3 months, into 6 months and now it has been over a year, and I literally still love waking up every morning and heading to the box for the best workout. My 1 year anniversary was in September and as of today I am down 42 pounds and 3 pant sizes! I have never felt better about myself and I can not wait to see what the next year at the box brings me! Maci, Clint and everyone at SFC are amazing and I can not thank them enough for helping me on this journey!!!
