Ashley – Wedding Weight Loss
Ashley’s Wedding Weight Loss
I came to Iron Fit by being harassed by Mark one day in January of 2011. He had sent me a message asking why I hadn’t contacted him yet (since I asked for his card about 3 times previously) so I made the decision that day to own up to my faults and go for a consultation.
I have known Mark for… long enough and was pretty scared/intimidated at first to
tell him I hadn’t really worked out much before,
stand on a scale in front of him… not really a high point and
realize that I had a long way to go.
I was getting married in August of 2011 so I had roughly 8 months to get to or close enough to the weight and “look” I wanted. I was never one to weigh myself, to be concerned with how I looked or care what other people thought but realized slowly as the pounds came off just how much better I felt and the sense of accomplishment it gave me. With Mark’s help (yes.. ill admit he helped) I got close to my “goal” weight for my wedding and even had to take my dress in more inches than I could have imagined. It definitely wasn’t easy.
I had a lot of bad days, grumpy days and was, as Mark will tell you, stubborn more then 90% of the time, but can honestly say that without him and his constant nagging and voice in the back of my mind, I would never be where I am today. I had lost over 30 lbs and over 15 inches in the 8 months and couldn’t of asked for better results.
I continue to work with his bossy, pushy and sarcastic attitude twice a week to continue to lose weight and gain confidence and become the best me that I can…
but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
