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.

Like a lot of people, I have struggled with weight my entire life. I have always been the fat friend, the fat sister, the fattest Mom at athletic events, just embarrassingly huge. I had been a yo-yo dieter since having my first child in 1996, which I found out much later totally stunted metabolism. I reached 260 pounds the summer of 2015, and actually had to get off of a roller coaster that my sons were riding because I was too big for the lap bar to come down. I was mooed at, it was terrible.

That was it, I knew I had to make a change. I read everything on health and weight loss I could get my hands on, and lost 30 pounds, gained 10, lost five, etc. Never getting passed the 30. I tried every smoothie, pink drink, wrap, and pill legally allowed!

Then I met Nikki through her daughter, who attends my summer camp. I knew I needed help, and I needed a professional. 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.

I followed the custom meal plan she created for me, busted my ass with the training plan. Checked in every week, sometimes multiple times a week if I needed help, felt down about myself.

Then in September I went to try on wedding dresses. I found a beautiful dress, fitting for a Greek goddess, that would leave an entire side of my torso bare. I wanted to try it, and I had been seeing insane progress, but they only had an 8. I cried for 20 minutes in the dressing room when for the first time in my life I felt beautiful. I was looking in the mirror and not a single roll of fat, no muffin top ruining the dress fit.  A happy, fit woman was staring back at me. My sister was with me and cried too!

Here I am now, just 30.5 pounds to goal, 171.5 pounds, from 260 and can honestly say I am in the best shape of my life! Practice makes progress! Nikki gives me 100% credit, but its HER plan, HER training, HER lessons! I just follow instructions well.
