Hi beautiful and welcome back to the Sexyfit Podcast!
The transformation story of our fellow Sexyfit sister Joanna Knight will just leave you speechless. Joanna is a mother of 2 kids, she works full time and goes to school full time. She has just graduated from the Sexyback Mastermind and besides lifestyle change and body transformation she achieved another amazing result. Joanna managed to enroll her husband on board and together they lost 120 pounds over one year! She lost 60 and he lost 60. Now how incredible is that?!!
Here is Joanna’s story.
Tell us a little about yourself and why you started on the Sexyfit journey?
I used to be in the military and got out 6 years ago. I have 2 sons and I’ve been working full time and going to school full time for 4 years now.
The reason I joined Sexyfit was because I was getting to where I was when I was pregnant with my son. I knew I needed to be healthy for my family and for myself because I was unhappy. Before Sexyfit I tried Isagenix, low-carb, Atkins, various body boot camps but the weight never stayed off.
What are you biggest wins from the last year and what were your biggest challenges?
My biggest win was that I went from size 20 to size 12 and then I’m now under 120 pounds, which I haven’t seen in over 6 years. That’s huge for me. I was also able to change my lifestyle and nutrition and now my family does it with me. My man lost over 60 pounds with me. He saw the way we were doing things and said it was something he should be doing. He’s been my cheerleader all the way.
The biggest challenge we faced was getting a hold of meal prepping and making it work since we are both very busy with work and school. Once we got a hold of it, it became really simple. We tried to encourage of each other to follow through with it.
What would you tell yourself 6 years ago?
I would tell myself to stop all the fat dieting and that there is a better way out. I was so defeated because I was so big. I would also tell myself to continue going to the gym and keep driving forward despite my weight or injuries.
Can you give some advice for our audience who are beginning this journey or who are maybe at a discouraging weight themselves?
Starting anything that is worthwhile is going to be hard. But you have to want it and it will be what you make of it. You have to commit. That was a big thing for me. Stick with it even if you feel like giving up. Try new things, try new recipes. The results are worth every bit of sweat you invest.
Joanna is an amazing Sexyfit mom who can serve as an example to her children and to other moms. She made no excuses for her lifestyle. She got her husband on board so he ended up taking a nutrition class while her 5 year old learned to read labels. Joanna became a Sexyfit expert and I became a huge fan of her and her family. Ladies, if she can make time so can you. See you in the Sexyfit group!
