The client of the month for April is one of the OG clients of Strive Fitness and Performance….Jenn Puggini. She has rocked her nutrition over the last 6 weeks and has lost an astounding 65 lbs within that time…..Before everyone asks; “What did she do”, lets talk about Jenn’s journey thus far.
Jenn has been with us on and off for about 3 years now. She is one of the most positive and bubbly personalities we have here at Strive. Although she is insanely strong, she has struggled with her weight and overall confidence over the last couple of years.
She has gone through a couple of challenges, but the consistency was not there.
Over the last year, her confidence took a hit and her life stress became very apparent. As always, she put up a great front, but she became dependent on food to feel better when it came to her emotions. She even had to take a break from the gym.
About a 2 months ago, she reached out again to me to say that she needed help and that now was the time for change.
65 lbs in 6 weeks is amazing!!! Everyone’s first reaction is of course,
What diet was she on?
What work outs was she doing?
So on and so on…
It was not a 21 day or 6 week challenge that promised her a fast weight lost. It was not a restrictive meal plan that put her in a miserable spot and almost guaranteed a rebound later on (most do).
To be honest, I wish I had a perfect or special product that she did, so I could promote it.
What got her the results then?
She became honest with her snacking and emotional eating and she checked in with me weekly to talk about her progress and what she was struggling with.
She became honest with her struggles (unlike before when she said she was following the plan when she was not….Most people fall into this category), and she was not a lone, she was consistent with her check ins and she followed our plan.
Our plan was simple….
Pay attention to the snacks and fast food. She sent me a picture and a written document every week (when she did not, I sent her a text) and she made sure she was getting protein in…..That is it
SIDE NOTE: Jenn has returned to the gym and PR’d her bench press and her 1 arm snatch 🙂
I am super proud of everything Jenn has done and still is doing….Keep on rolling
