What was your “WHY” to embark on your health & wellness journey with Thrive 9?
My WHY was to get back to being ME. I had a break up after 20 years and lost myself in the transition.
How many inches have you lost with Thrive 9?
What dress/pant size did you start with and what size are you now?
I was a tight 6, mostly 8. Now mostly 4.
How long did it take you to reach your goal-slow and steady wins the race?
What is the most valuable piece of info you’ve learned with Thrive 9?
1) Be open-minded about new ideas and approaches. Obviously what I was doing wasn’t working for me.
2) Wellness is so much more than food and exercise.
What does a typical Thrive 9 day look for you food wise now?
Coffee, greens, eggs, veggies, big salad, green smoothie, chicken, potatoes, veggies, some fruit.
Have you established a morning routine?
Mostly but working on refining it.
Have you established a regular fitness practice? If so, what have you changed or added?
Yes. I added yoga which I love!
How do you look at food now? What is the biggest takeaway you’ve learned through Thrive 9?
I look at all the benefits that food has to fuel my mind and body. My biggest takeaway is to EAT WHOLE, REAL FOODS.
What other improvements besides fat-loss have you seen on in your overall health?
My mind is clearer. I am calmer and more focused.
What is the biggest diet & exercise myth that Thrive9 busted for you?
The biggest myth was that you need to eat breakfast. I feel so much better doing more of an intermittent fast. Another myth was that I needed so much fuel when running. I actually need very little.
How did you reach your goals and how compliant and consistent were you?
I followed Christine’s plan and was very compliant and consistent. I went into the plan with the mindset that what I was doing wasn’t working and I needed to follow her plan.
Do you love to workout & eat whole foods now?
Do you count calories or measure your food?
Nope. I am aware of portions sizes and what works for me.
