Melissa’s Transformation Story
Guest blog by Transformation Tuesday success story Melissa Saddler:
I have always thought about losing weight for a long time.
Nothing moved me until I became short of breath, on a regular basis.
Walking 20 feet to my car or walking up the stairs at work having to take several minutes to catch my breath before talking to someone.
I have always been self conscious about my weight and looks.
I’ve always thought people look at my size and judge me.
I joined Derek’s bootcamp and had the same fears; worrying what people would say or laugh at me trying to do a workout.
At Derek’s boot camp those fears went away after a week!
I did what I could and no one judged me, they only pushed and encouraged me.
I began this journey at the beginning of the 28 Day Ab Burn. when I saw my name as one of the top “losers” I was even more motivated.
As my clothes began to get big on me I began to buy a size smaller of something and set goals to be able to wear it at a certain time.
The encouragement from everyone is amazing and motivating.
Rich: you’re a counter, “How many reps so far Melissa?!”
Roland0 : #teamnoquit
Kirsten: always encouraging, making sure I’m good and and checking on my form throughout the workout.
Derek: “Good job, give me 2 more, 3 more, keep moving!!”
“Keep trying, don’t give up, press on, good job”are just a few of encouraging words given.
Those would be the same words I would say to anyone new joining bootcamp.
Most of all try it, you won’t be sorry!
