Meet Marianne…FIT AT 50!
I have always struggled with my weight as so many people have in their lives. The turning point for me was when I went to high school and really wanted a lead role in the musical, and in so many words was told I had the talent but would not get a lead role unless I lost weight. That put me on my mission to be in shape and stay in shape.
I began an excercise routine and began eating healthy. It almost became an obsession in my life. There were points in college, when I was eating 500 calories a day. A huge mistake I know! I kept at a reasonable weight for most of my adult life in whatever way I could. I tried to educate myself as much as I could and always excercised. Leading up to my 50 birthday, I was feeling fatigued, having hot flashes, palpitations, and all the other great symptoms of menapause. I thought to myself, this is what I heard would happen and I thought I would need to deal with it. However, I did not want to become what everyone else my age was becoming. I was going to fight every step of the way!
I had followed a friend Tammy, as a fitness competitor and she spoke of her coach so highly. She indicated what great knowledge she had and how she had finally found the person that would help her toward her goals. I deperately wanted to feel and look better. I was eating and exercising the same way I had thoughout my whole life, but I was not getting the same results. In fact, I felt I was not getting any results. I was gaining weight!!! The one thing I had tried to keep from doing my whole life. Granted some means of doing that were better than others, but I did see what I thought were results.
I have always been a disciplined, and committed person, and I was committed to not be a fat, unhealthy 50 year old woman. I decided to see what Angie could do for me. As you can see from the pictures, her plans work. She individually works with you throughout the journey. She answers your questions, she is caring and warm. I feel as though I have made a great friend in Angie. She has been beside me every step of the way. If you know me, I am a humble person, and I do not write this testimonial to brag, but to show you that with work, dedication, and guidance you can be healthy. I feel great, and I feel as though I am in the best shape of my life. at 51. I started my journey 8 months ago, and my body is strong, and still changing. I am proud of body for the first time in my life! Angie has helped me get there. I now have the “true” knowledge that I never had ,and thought I did. I now realize that eating (imagine that) makes you body lean! Eating real food makes you strong and vibrant. I am fighting for me!!! I look forward to continuing the journey of health and well being. I am “Fit at 50!!!
