CLIENT SUCCESS!! A Must Read! EVOLVE IN 2016!


My decision to evolve came from a place of desperation. I was at a breaking point with my weight and I had to do socket bit about it. I was considering gastric bypass surgery, however it did not feel right. I knew that if I was going to truly change that I had to take control. In late July of 2014, I sat down with my dad and I told him, with tears in my eyes, that I wanted gastric bypass surgery. I did not feel like I had a choice. I had tried numerous weight loss plans, but they all had one thing in common, an end date. This was the inherent problem with "diets" is that the 21 day fix is only good for those 21 days, what about day 22? I asked several "coaches" or distributors about this and they all had similar answers...they wanted me to sell their product. Finally, one of my dads co-workers told him about JT. I met with JT for the first time that summer and I was determined to change. When I sat in the room with him discussing my eating habits, I could hardly fit in the chair. Skinny people do not worry about such things like, "Am I going to fit in the booth?" Or "I will just stand because I know my ass literally can not fit in that chair." Evolving is not easy. In fact, if you are not willing to work, forget it. There is not a magic pill, there is not a secret to losing weight. To lose weight and get healthy takes a lot of time, knowledge, and hard work. JT has helped me manage all three of these, and within one year I lost over 100 pounds. JT taught me to get rid of toxicity. That meant not only toxic foods but also toxic people. A strong support group is essential to evolving. If people in your life are not helping you grow, they are holding you back from your potential. Time and patience are two things I struggled with. I wanted to lose a substantial amount of weight, and I expected certain results. I had to remember that this is about progression, not perfection. Every small goal matters. Every inch lost matters, every minute more on the treadmill matters, it all adds up. Part of me evolving included achieving both short term and long term goals. I have always wanted to go to law school, and I was also determined to stand up paddle board. I am happy to say that as I type I'm finishing up my first semester of law school, and after losing 50 pounds I was able to stand up on my paddle board! It's is truly incredible what you are capable of once you're dedicated. This time last year I could not walk for more than 15 minutes without my entire body being in severe pain. A few weeks after walking for 15 minutes each day, I was able to walk longer and faster. Six months after working with JT I was in the gym lifting weights and on the treadmill. Evolving is not easy. It requires you to be open to change, to be humble, and to work hard. All of this is achievable, it can be done, but it is a process.
