We are so proud to feature Marissa as this week's transformation journey. She has put in the hard work it takes to reach goals, and we congratulate her!! Thank you Marissa for sharing your story here with us, we know it will be an inspiration to many others.
Hi my name is Marissa. I am 27 years old and up until 5 months ago I had gotten to a point where my body was no longer effectively working for me due to my size. So I decided it was time for me to take back control of my body and most importantly my health.
Unfortunately I didn't have much support at home, so I had to create a support system for myself. The 1st thing I did was change my diet. I started eating only fresh foods and watching my sodium, sugar and carb intake. Once I felt that I had my diet under control I knew I wanted to start working out. I joined TFC for a few reasons.
1. I liked that it was a female only class. I already have enough anxiety about working out in front of people let alone men.
2. I had tried out the class before and really liked how Analisa (my trainer) had created a comfortable and welcoming environment. I feel like TFC is so much more than just a workout class. We do group outings everynow and then and are always in communication with each other through our group FB page. The workouts are always challenging and everyone is always really supportive!
I also decided to create a youtube channel to keep me accountable with weekly weigh in videos. So far I'm down 58 pounds and 24 inches!!! Having TFC and my YouTube channel has really helped me to stay focused and kept me headed towards meeting my goals.
My goal is to lose 70lbs. I can't believe how far I have already come and I'm only 12lbs away from reaching my 70lb goal. I have found a new goal through my channel to positively inspire and motivate others to reach their own goals to get healthy.
