42 Down ~ 323 to go

Monday, February 11, 2013

As we were at the gym today, we spoke with another person there that is almost always there when we are. One of the questions she asked us was how much total weight have we lost together since we started...Hmmm, good question.

Paul and I have lost a total of 105 lbs so far between the two fo us. Yep, that's right, 105 lbs in 4 months. How does that break down?

Paul 70
Tami 35

Darn men losing quicker then women. emoticon Actually I'm thrilled with my loss so far and that number does not include my weigh in for this week as that is not until Wednesday.

Not only have I lost 35 lbs in the last 4 months, I've also lost 21.5 inches total as of February 1st. This is such a great feeling seeing these numbers. What's even better than this? The fact that I believe in us...I believe in the process that will make us succeed and reach our goals that have been so far away for so many years.

Besides this wonderful realization of the numbers, we had an amazing offer by the PT Linda. She approached me just before I headed to the elliptical and said that she wanted to talk to both of us if she was done training before we left, sure no problem. So after we finished with everything including the recumbent, she was sitting at her desk, so we went over. I figured she wanted to schedule our next consultation or what not, well, in a way she did but so much better!! She told us that she has been watching our progress since she came there and that she had talked to our previous PT Joey quite a bit about us. She said she admired what we had done so far on our own, but she thought it was time for us to step things up. This is the cool part.... she then proceeded to make us an offer.... she said we could say no, but she wanted us to hear her out. Then Linda asked if we would be interested in having her train us personally two days a week free of charge..... jaws hit the floor and eyes bug out of the head right about now.... she said in return she wanted us to do something for her.... ok hmmm.....what would she want? us to promote her? brag about her? Nope all she wanted was that we let her document our progress from her training us with before and after photos. That's it? Are you kidding me? She wants to use us for her portfolio for credibility to her training techniques, that's it! HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?!?!!! Of course we needed time to..... DUH!!! OF COURSE WE WILL!! That was a no brainer. We also told her that anytime we are there, if she needs help with anything , just to ask and we would be willing to help out. Pay it forward!

What a great day it ended up being! So February 22nd we begin our training with Linda! From what I understand she wants to do this with us until we reach our goal. How cool is that? I mean, who does that? I'm just stoked!

Thanks for stopping by!

    That is awesome! Those training sessions can be so expensive. She saw the fact that you all put the time in and have been committed to the process and so she is winning too. I wish someone would do that for me!
