Chick Transformation: Evie @ Cypress Texas Fit Chicks!!!

"At the age of 44 years old, I was starting to feel that my body could no longer keep up with my busy lifestyle. I have a fabulous career traveling all over the country which requires me to be on my feet quite a bit. Plus I have a wonderful family which consists of a very active husband and 10 year old son.

My weight was at an all time high of 270 pounds and I was on the verge of becoming diabetic. My feet and ankles would be swollen at the end of every day, I new I had to do something about my weight for my family and more importantly for myself.

I read a book called Wheat Belly which really taught me how to eat a more healthy gluten free diet. I was able to drop some weight and build momentum. Then for around 6 months my weight stayed the same.

I noticed my neighbor who had a baby recently was looking pretty buff. I asked her what she was doing and she told me about Texas Fit Chicks. She offered to take me with her so I could try it out. Knowing I could never make a 5 a.m. class I reluctantly agreed to go and check it out once. I am not going to lie, after the first class I thought I was going to die! But..this class was different than going to a gym. It was all women and no judgement. The trainer kept a close eye on me to make sure I was making the appropriate adjustments. She and all the others were so supportive. I decided to sign up for 1 month. I told myself that if I stuck with it for one month my reward would be to sign up for three months. Three months later I was rockin' and Rollin' on the weight loss and rewarded myself with 6 more months. Then for the first time since I joined I had a weight gain instead off loss. I felt defeated and told my trainer that I didn't know what I was doing wrong.

She suggested I take a closer look at my calorie intake. That very day she sent me caloric goals to stick within for weight loss. I was religious about following her caloric recommendations. This taught me a very important lesson, I was still over eating even though I was eating gluten free. So I taught myself to limit my portions and amount of snacking.

I was going to be out of town for my monthly weigh in so I asked Marissa to weigh me in early. She said "is that right? Step on the scale again," then she said "you lost 15 pounds since your last weigh in." She and I both were a little teary eyed, I said "we make an amazing team."

I am still not at my goal weight do my story is not finished yet. But I have consistently continued to drop weight since the I have both diet and exersize under control: I get compliments daily about how good I am looking. My body is taking shape.

Not too long after my big month of weight loss I was able to fulfill a life long dream if mine to meet Oprah Winfrey. My boss called me up to tell me that Oprah was going to be attending one of our events and she wanted me there. So I hopped a plain to Chicago to meet Oprah. It was so gratifying to not only meet my the person I have admired since my role model for high school, but I was able to actually look amazing in the fitted new dress I purchased after my weight loss. Thank you Texas Fit Chicks and my trainer Marissa for making me look so good next to Oprah. Oh yes, in case your wondering, Oprah is just as amazing in person as she is on T.V."

Thank you,
Evie Baron-Hernandez
