Meet Our Member Follow Up: Heather

I recently had to take some time off from the club, but I really appreciated all the support I got from the other members - it's great to find such an amazing community, and I'm excited to get back into the workout routine and taking classes to train my brain!

I've noticed that a lot of people have been struggling with finding time to work out or finding the "right" fit for them in their weight loss journey, so this month I'm going to talk a little more about my personal struggles and see if we can all work as a team to reach our goals together.

The last three weeks I've been working so much and been so busy with doctor's appointments that I've been neglecting my workouts. This has depressed me, because I recently finally got to my weight loss goal (losing 350lbs) and am now in a size of clothing that I haven't worn since 1993! I'm still cutting back on my calories and try my best to eat as clean as possible, which definitely isn't easy. I struggle the most with getting enough protein, which my friends at Square One have been helping me with.

Some people hear me talk about my weight loss and might think I am bragging, but I always remind them that I'm not perfect and everyone has their own weight loss journey. I've come a long way from where I started from, and if I can do this, anyone can!

Marty and Amy have played such an important role in this journey and I'm so very blessed to be able to help them to grow their dream, locally and eventually nation wide. I see my preteen son struggling with similar problems that I had at that age, and I want to be the kind of parent that my son can look up to and learn good habits from rather than bad habits. We as a team need to change the future for our children and grandchildren. Square One is a great place to start!
