Crystal Hits 60 lbs Gone Feb 27, 2019
When she returned this time it was with a full commitment to be here until the end. Did she run to goal? Nope. She struggled through. She decided it wasn’t about speed this time. It was about making this her last weight loss journey ever. And in that respect, she is a big-time winner.
Yes, she still has a few more dragon’s to slay as she finishes up, but they are minimal compared to the ones she came here with.
Crystal is now thinner than her original end weight from her first time here. She has rewritten her life and now owns her own business and she quit smoking while doing this weight loss. We are all so proud of her, love supporting her and love being supported by her.
Please celebrate her great successes with us and I’m not just talking weight loss.
In Her Own Words
Carlene asks each of our ladies who do before and afters that when they hit 60 lbs gone they answer the following questions to share with the world. Here are Crystal’s Answers in Her Own Words:
1. Tell us about yourself and where you were physically and mentally before joining RFBC:
Before coming to camp my life was one of living in excess and instant gratification. Spending too much money, eating high fat/high sodium foods and consuming more alcohol than necessary. Escaping life and medicating with food was my normal.
2. What have you learned the most about yourself and your relationship with food since starting RFBC?
Since joining RFBC I’ve learned that certain foods can leave you very satisfied and don’t make you crave more. I’ve learned that sticking to a plan is extremely rewarding and not a punishment! Good foods make you feel happy, confident and energetic. It’s really true.
3. What Physical and mental health benefits have you noticed since joining RFBC?
Since joining RFBC I can really see a difference in my moods. I am so much happier. I feel light on my feet, I can bend down to tie my laces without cutting off circulation and I can run up stairs without being out of breath. It feels so great not to be bloated anymore. My cheekbones and collarbones are coming in and I’m watching my body get smaller and smaller in disbelief and JOY.
4. What have been some of the biggest highlights of your journey?
Memorable highlights at camp include “aha” moments felt during the daily audios, the kind that make you cry or get up and scream YES! Hitting 25lbs and 50lb milestones felt really good and 60lbs gone feels over the top amazing!!! Watching fellow campers push through the same issues I face and win also feels great every time. I love it here.
5. What advice would you offer your readers and newbies at RFBC so they might enjoy your type of success?
The best advice I could give is to anyone considering joining camp is DO IT!!! This is the safest and most effective place to lose weight that I have found. Carlene cares about your success 1000%. This is more than a diet. This is a fully guided program to help you change from the inside out and get you to your goal weight.
To newbies, my advice would be to trust the process and believe that you can do this! Participate on the discussion boards as this keeps you accountable and in the right headspace. Perseverance is key! If you fall, get up right away. I did this over and over and over again. No one is perfect here. Don’t ever feel shame here, we are all in the same boat and understand the journey.
