21 Day Challenge Starts January 16: Join Me!

Oh my stars.

 

I'm just so excited about this, and think you will be too.

 

If you struggle with your weight, you are not alone.

 

If you've hung out here on PPP for awhile, you know I've struggled most of my life with weight issues.

This was me as a junior in high school when I was probably around 190 pounds – it was all I could do not to Picmonkey this picture to make me look just a little better but I'm keeping it real here ~ yikes! I topped out at 225 as a sophomore in college.

And while I lost a pretty amazing 75 pounds way back in 1995 (and have kept it off for twenty years, 3 babies and all), I've never had a healthy relationship with food. 

 

To keep off that weight, I've always exercised (at least 40 minutes to an hour, 4-5 days a week), and for the most part I've eaten reasonably calorically. (Thanks to working out I could eat a little more ~ my motto has been I exercise so I can eat!) 🙂

 

But I never really got down to my “dream” weight, and still hovered at the highest end of a healthy weight for my height. 

 

And in many ways, I’ve stayed a little obsessed with food.

 

I’ve gone along with our culture’s model of what’s okay to eat, and chosen foods that just aren’t right at all. 

 

2011 at the Alabama Governor's Ball – the only time I've every worn a formal dress other than my wedding. 😉 

 

 

 

So last January, after gaining a few too many Christmas pounds, I decided to try out the 21 Day Fix.

 

It worked.

Results after two rounds ~ I lost 13 pounds in 6 weeks, success!

One year later (and even after Christmas!), I'm still down the 13 pounds I lost (with about 6 more I'd love to lose), and goodness gracious, I promise if you follow this program it will work.

 

There's no magic to it.

 

Nothing fancy at all.

 

You eat regular, healthy foods that you find at the grocery store, exercise every day, and lose weight. 

 

You just have to decide to start.

It's HARD to find pictures of us before because I was pretty cautious about what I allowed to get on camera – eek! This hopefully gives you an idea though . . . 

Curious what I've found after sticking to the 21 Day Fix (for the most part at least) for an entire year?

1. I have way fewer headaches.

I used to wake up with a headache almost every. single. day. Apparently that was somehow related to eating way too many carbs, because I don't think I've had a single headache since starting the fix (which is crazy to me?)

2. My skin is so much better.

I've always had awful skin, and had horrible acne as a teenager. (Add that to a 225 pound body, and you can imagine high school wasn't fun for me!) As an adult my acne for the most part has cleared up, but I've continued to have really large pores that have driven me crazy.

While they're still noticeable, they are drastically less noticeable than they were 21 days ago. Honestly this has been the biggest surprise, and I never would have guessed it!

3. I'm really not hungry.

I expected to starve most of the time during the 21 days, but honestly haven't struggled with that one?

Apparently I need way less food than I thought I did, and by choosing the right foods I think my body is so much more easily satisfied than it was before. Apparently your body really does like protein that consists of something other than Nutella. (Who knew?)

4. I need carrots. Or broccoli slaw.

cannot believe how much carrots and broccoli slaw fill me up. They're amazing. Even though it hasn't been easy, when I've really just been hungry I've reached for those instead of chocolate chips. (truth.)

I am so much fuller, and can't believe the difference choosing the right foods has made.

5. Eating the right foods and exercising the right way changes your shape more than just eating fewer calories does.

Even though I've been at the weight I'm at in the after picture before, my body feels a little stronger and looks a little better because of choosing the right foods and exercising correctly. I love that. 🙂

And, I love that I'm exercising just 30 minutes each day.

Sooooo ~ will you join me as I finish out to my goal? (Please please please say you will?) 

 

Guys, I do not ever promote things like this.

 

But right now, Beachbody (the program that runs the 21 Day Fix) has a crazy amazing offer, and I think you're going to love it. 

 

It's basically Netflix for fitness.

 

Get UNLIMITED ACCESS to HUNDREDS of workout videos for as little as $99 per year.

 

And get access to a private Facebook group.

 

This is so worth it ~ every single penny.

 

If you'd like to try Shakeology and the entire meal plan system including containers and diet plan (which is what I used this last year), you'll pay $199. (I know it's not cheap, but goodness, it's so worth it!)

 

 

Here's what's included:

1) ME as your coach. 🙂

2) Access to our private Facebook group for support and encouragement

3) 1-Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content included…fully unlocked, plus new future releases coming in 2017. Yes, this means you get the NEW Core De Force, Country Heat, CIZE, 21 Day Fix, T25, INSANITY MAX:30, P90X and many others AT NO EXTRA cost.

4) Shakeology (choice of 30-day supply on Home Direct)

5) Portion Fix (includes 7-piece portion control container set, eating guide, large blue container & shaker cup)

6) VIP membership to save 10% off all products going forward (like my fav pre-workout Energize)

7) New Coach Sign-up fee is waived and get your Business Starter Kit included. (This is like my extra coupon for you: If you sign up as a coach…in month 2, your coach discounts kick in and save 25% off the shakes, totally optional!)

You get all of this for $199 for the entire year (12 months) and there is NO monthly fee.

TOTAL COST = $199

 

OR, if you'd prefer to try it out without Shakeology AND WITHOUT THE MENU PLAN/MEAL CONTAINERS, you'll get this: 

1) ME as your coach. 🙂

2) Access to our private Facebook group for support and encouragement

3) 1-Year Membership to Beachbody On Demand (BOD) with all content included…fully unlocked, plus new future releases coming in 2017. Yes, this means you get the NEW Core De Force, Country Heat, CIZE, 21 Day Fix, T25, INSANITY MAX:30, P90X and many others AT NO EXTRA cost.

 

You get all of this for $99 for the entire year (12 months) and there is NO monthly fee.

TOTAL COST = $99

We'll start one round of the official 21 Day Fix program on January 15th (which gives you plenty of time to order your supplies), and I KNOW you will get results if you commit to this.

 

And I'd love for you to see success with me as we commit to this.

    I bought this program awhile back, and just through away all the containers the other day. From day one none of the lids ever went and stayed on properly. I hated getting rid of them because I payed for them, but they were just taking up space, because they were just horrible quality. I am not saying the program is bad, but the quality of their containers, horrible!

  2. Question: I already have the 21 day fix, Cize, and The Shred. Could I still join the Facebook group?

  3. Sharon Heintz says

    Hey, Laurie! I just wanted you to know that I went online to sign up for this – (the $99 deal since I already have the containers) and ended up having to call because it kept saying I was already a member (which I was last year but had canceled). I think I have it resolved (but they said it could take up to 72 hours for me to get access – was surprised about that!)…I’m looking forward to getting after it again and using different workouts once they are available.
    Just wanted to make sure I got in your Facebook group again – you are so encouraging!!!
    love ya,
    sharon

  4. Hey Laurie! This was amazing I really didn’t recognize you in those old pictures. I just assume you were one of the lucky ones a skinny woman. Very good testimonial! Keep up the good work.

    • Thank you for your kind words Sheri – that means so much to me! I still look in the mirror and see the chubby girl (I think that never goes away), but definitely fight for it still every day. Sooo worth it though – it feels so good to feel good in my own skin, and that was so hard for me when I was heavy! Thanks for your kind words! 🙂

  5. Looks like I am too late for this round… will you be doing another soon?
