Tone It Up Inspiration

This is exactly WHY I LOVVEEE the girls on Tone It Up!! Check it out!

It's Motivation Monday! On top of the Cyber Monday Excitement on our blog, I decided I would share my before and after photo... it's been up for a while on www.ToneItUpPlan.com but I've never posted it on facebook... maybe I was too afraid to? The comments I might get for putting myself out there? Embarrassed? It's amazing to see so many women on theTone It Up Nutrition Plan take that brave step and put themselves out there-- you inspired me to do so too!! 

I have to 
be honest… I was feeling a little humiliated to put this picture up even on our site… especially as a trainer. I was not healthy and not feeding my body right. Being a personal trainer, I was spending too much time on others, my career and not my own health (like most people actually; mothers, business women, students etc). I hid my weight really well. I hid from pictures, events and even started hiding from mirrors. I was ashamed and decided to make a change… for good! Then one day I took charge... a couple years ago I lost 23 pounds and gained 8 pounds of lean muscle- but most of all felt BETTER!! Karena and I put together the Nutrition Plan to help us slim down and tone up. It's been a lifestyle now, and being part of this community has changed my life ♥ I don't know where I'd be without you.

No more losing weight and then gaining it all back. I almost didn’t put my picture up, but then I realized that this is why I want to help others. I changed my life. I still get nervous in front of the camera-- I still think about my weight, but I have my lifestyle now. I'm so much happier, confident in myself and feel like I can do anything. I also have no more joint pain because of the pressure of my extra weight. Stop waiting for tomorrow… or Monday. I’ve been there. You are the only one in control of your weight and health. Take charge and make a change now! You won't ever regret taking care of YOU!!!
Sincerely,
♥ Katrina
