The first thing Nikki did was ask about my goals. I was getting married in the fall, and refused to be a fat bride. She asked my what my current size was, I told her 22. Then almost fell out of the chair when she said “How would you like to be an 8?” I NEVER believed I could be a size 8 by the fall, when it was Spring when we started this journey, but SHE believed I could do it, and I knew with her background she had the tools to make it happen.
You always hear me preach: hard work, consistency, time. Donna is 50 year old. She came to me just under 2 years ago.
Despite all of our fighting these past two years, Donna has always, and continues, to make me incredibly proud. Hard work. Consistency. Time. Fifty years old people. Making all the young bucks look like amateurs, and improving every single workout. Anybody have anymore excuses? -DJ
It was difficult and I had a ton of excuses for which David had a response for each and every one but basically saying there is no reason/excuse why I can’t stick to the meal plan. I finally got it through my thick head that I could do it and I did, but I was able to do this because of David’s help. He was the encouragement and tough love voice that helped me realize that I am strong enough to get my body where I want it.
David is a hard ass, and definitely full of tough love. He criticizes when needed and is brutally honest. He also seemed to have a knack for knowing when I was about to give up, and had a way of making me not want to disappoint him or myself. And I would push harder because of it. I feel confident in what we can accomplish working together.
David has been working with me for seven months now. He has me work with weights I think are too heavy for me, but he always proves me wrong. He piles that weight on, tells me to breath right and says I can do it– and I DO!!! I can barely do the first rep, when all of a sudden, well, not that sudden, I get 12 done.
