Let us introduce you to Ms. Carla Strickland. To know Carla is to LOVE Carla. She lights up a room, and is full of love and support for all around her! We are so proud that Carla has decided to redirect a portion of that love towards HERSELF!! Furthermore, we count ourselves lucky that she is allowing the divas of Fit, Fyne and Fabulous to celebrate in her victories (big and small). Show Carla some love for losing, wait for it….. 25 inches and 12 pounds in just 5 weeks. I can’t deal, I’m dead! This from the girl who thought she couldn’t walk a block!!! Proud is an understatement. Let’s read her story below, shall we?
How did you learn about Fit, Fyne, and Fabulous? I learned about FFF from my dear church member and friend, Nicole Twyman.
Before FFF, I would lose a few lbs and then gain a few lbs. I was not consistent nor motivated enough to eat right! I was discouraged and stressed about the weight I was carrying. However, I would eat more and improperly. I surely was too distraught to work out…AT LEAST I THOUGHT! My morale was shot!
First of all, I work better under pressure! One day while talking to Nicole, she challenged me to allow her to help me with my weight loss goal. She told me I would be accountable to her. I thought, “WOW, she’s serious about helping me!” I was always taught, when someone dedicates themself to helping you in any way, you’d better work hard at doing your part because that person CARES ABOUT YOU! In a nutshell, Nicole is FFF and FFF loves me but I HAVE TO LOVE ME MORE THAN SHE/FFF DOES! So that challenge, the accountability, the ladies, the teamwork, the awesome coaches, the morale, the teaching of clean eating, the pics of the meals are all helping me reach my goal and CHANGE MY LIFE!
Would I recommend FFF is the question of the year!!! Lol. I’ve already recommended FFF to my friends and family! I’m working towards my weight loss goal and becoming a coach because of my coach!
Right now my most rewarding NSV is most of my pants are dragging the floor. Also, I have a button-up shirt and when I put one arm on, the shirt would not reach around my back to even reach the other arm. This has been in effect for over 2 yrs. now. However, yesterday I tried that shirt on just to see how far I had to go in order to be able to reach arm to arm….to my surprise, I WORE THAT SHIRT TO MY ALL-DAY EVENT YESTERDAY! YEEEAAA!!!
Since joining FFF, I’ve been soooo motivated and encouraged that I haven’t wanted to give up! I can say that by my second weigh in on the scale, I had gained about 5-6 lbs. I got really sad and discouraged, but giving up never crossed my mind, but had it did, these ladies were already on it with their motivating, encouraging words along with links and websites of information about how muscle weighs as much as fat in the beginning. There are no excuses nor negativity allowed and I love it!!
The magic word is FREE! Before this group, I hardly knew of anything of value that was FREE especially a gym and personal trainer. Nevertheless, when you join FFF you get it all…..workout coach, meal coach, motivational coach, therapy coach, confidence, a lot more friends, a whole new family and A NEW YOU!
The advice I would like to offer is, never let anything discourage you or stress you out to the point that you quit loving you! In the event your weight loss journey becomes too challenging for you, JOIN FFF, incorporate that challenge so you can develop and learn an entirely new level of challenging while giving it a new meaning!! I CHALLENGE YOU TO JOIN FFF….AFTERALL, COACH NICOLE TWYMAN CHALLENGED ME AND I’M LOVING EVERY SECOND OF THE MINUTE OF THE HOUR OF GETTING FIT, FYNE AND FABULOUS!
