Weight Lost - 29 lbs

Hello, Ger and BodySlims team! I was introduced to the BodySlims program by my friend, Karen Bowman, who shared her experience with the program she started in September 2022. Her results have been incredible! I was so inspired by her that I signed up for the January 2023 program. It has been exactly the motivation I needed to actually DO the work to finally lose the weight I've been trying to get off FOR YEARS!!! It's not like I haven't known what to do: eat less/exercise more. I just actually never DID it consistently. The mental fitness part of this program and all the daily touch points has been the key to success for me. This journey has revealed how much satisfaction I get from checking off all the boxes and seeing how many hot days I can get. I am currently in the midst of my second program that started in April 2023, and for the first time, I know without a doubt that I'm going to reach my "Dare to Dream" weight goal. As Ger says, "The only thing in abeyance is time", and I'm getting really, really close.

I have hadn't dramatic, huge weight loss numbers week to week, but as of this week's weigh-in on 5/17/23, I've lost just over 29 lbs. since starting my first program on 1/18/23. It's almost 20% of my starting weight. Slow and steady wins the race. I've had several people tell me, "You look great! You want to lose more? You're gonna waste away.", etc. and had I not heard Ger's message about the biggest barrier to reaching great being getting to good, I may have stopped prematurely on my weight loss journey. However, now I have the wisdom to know better, and I'm not gonna let reaching "good" be a barrier to reaching "great"! I know I have it in me to get there, and BodySlims has given me that belief again. I've created new habit patterns that will serve me well in others aspects of my life. I've also seen the impact it's had on my family. My hubby has been inspired and is consistently walking again and has lost over 15 pounds, and my kiddos have been the best encouragers and supporters!

Throughout the program, my anthem has been "The Greatest Show" from "The Greatest Showman". The lyrics are spot on for the BodySlims program:

"Oh, this is the greatest show
We light it up, we won't come down
And the walls can't stop us now
Watchin' it come true, it's takin' over you
Oh, this is the greatest show
'Cause everything you want is right in front of you
And you see the impossible is comin' true
And the walls can't stop us (now) now, (oh), yeah"

And, indeed, the "Greatest Show" has been the movie reel I play in my head after my 5 minutes of gratitude on my daily walk. I'm looking forward to the day when that show isn't just in my head, but it's a reality I see in the mirror. I am ever so close!!! I'm taking the impossible and changing it to I'M possible, and it all started because Karen shared her story. I will forever be indebted to her and to Ger and the BodySlims program.
It has truly been transformational!
