I am 46 years old and I have played sports and figured that was a good workout but still never lost the weight.

I was very hesitant to join Boot Camp. I figured with how heavy I was, I couldn’t do it. I was wrong. Don’t get me wrong, it was extremely hard. I thought I was having a heart attack on my first day. It did get better but with a lot of work.

I feel so good about myself after each Boot Camp class. Every workout I feel is an accomplishment for me.

I have lost 30 lbs. on Meal Plans and went from a size 22 to 18 but I would like to lose 30 more. My next goal is to lose the belly fat. My other goal is to be able to join Sharon’s Metabolic Explosion Training class. I am even thinking of trying to run in a small marathon at some point.

The way I feel now compared to how I felt a year ago is what motivates me. I used to lose my breath playing my sports and even doing everyday work like cutting the grass but not anymore. It makes it all worthwhile when I haven’t seen someone in a year and they tell me I look great. That is a great motivator!! My friends have told me that I seem much happier since I have lost the weight.

Sharon has been a great motivator to me and has always given me support. When I have struggled she has always talked to me and has sent me motivational emails. She doesn’t put up with my crap. I owe a lot to her.

In the past, I had tried Diet Center, Nutri-system, Jenny Craig, Richard Simmons Deal a Meal, Weight Watchers, I tried Sensa, a couple of products I ordered off of the internet, I joined Golds Gym, Victory Fitness, many other diet centers that have gone out of business. I am not sure why they didn’t work. Maybe because I really wasn’t ready to make the commitment to lose the weight.

I think the reason Boot Camp has been successful is because I saw results right away which made me more motivated to keep going. I didn’t see results with the other weight loss programs I tried and that is why I quit them. I started the Meal Plan in February and having a plan telling me what I need to eat each day made it much easier for me to lose the weight. The plan was very easy to follow and has helped me understand portion size. Before starting it, I always felt guilty for what I had eaten. I enjoyed eating it at the time but afterwards made me feel guilty. Portion size meant nothing to me. This Plan has shown me that food that is good for you can also taste good. It has helped me tremendously. I am in a routine now and I make everything ahead of time so it is ready the next day. No excuses.

I feel good. I am learning that I don’t need all that junk food to make me happy. I’m not as tired as I used to be. I feel a difference in my clothes and I don’t have to take my heartburn medicine every day. I would recommend a Meal Plan to others because IT WORKS!!!

I would and have recommended Sharon’s Boot Camp class to anyone. I can’t thank Sharon enough for sticking with me and helping me out when I needed it and even if I didn’t think I needed it. I still have a long road ahead of me and it isn’t going to be easy. Every day is a struggle but with Sharon’s support I know I will be able to accomplish my goals. I am glad she has stuck with me.
