“When Andy and I saw the pictures from our 4th of July family gathering… we couldn’t believe how much weight we’d put on. So we made a decision to do something about it. On August 17th, 2009 we walked in the doors of In-Shape Sport: Tracy. When the fitness manager asked what brought us in, we said we weren’t here for a diet or to just lose weight; we were here for a lifestyle change. It was a slow start for both of us but we stuck to it and found our groove. My husband started walking on the treadmill and lifting weights. His time in the gym has increased and he’s there religiously. I found success in the group cycling class. I’ve met some wonderful people who took me under their wing and introduced me to outdoor road bike riding. I completed my first metric century this past September. My husband is a wonderful cook. He’s changed his cooking to accommodate our healthy living. We eat sensibly, however still indulge every once in awhile. (Don’t get us wrong…we have good days and bad days…just now have the mindset to get up, dust it off and get back on!) No crazy diets, no weight loss pills, just good old fashioned hard work… sweating it out at our gym! We weigh in every month on the 22nd. Over Christmas, we had another family gathering and it was such a wonderful feeling having our family notice and comment on our hard work and progress. Funny thing is….you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!”
