What is a TITM? A Transformation In The Making. And yes, I have been coaching people to the other side of happy since my early 20’s, but this one we are doing differently. We are going public with it while it happens, instead of waiting for success and numbers. Two reasons. One, maybe some of you will relate to the journey and benefit from watching and because I need your help. I believe that your support will help push Cheryl to a place she has never to before and because it’s being done in front of you she will have a harder time backing out!
I met Cheryl and her partner Terry just over 4 years ago. Man was she shy. Her eyes would look at me like a scared little kid. She sat all the way in the back of my yoga-like class in the dark and I still hooked on to her! We bonded. I wanted to help her. Cheryl has been struggling with her weight her whole life. She was terribly afraid of success and making changes. It was a tough one for me to figure out, although I fully understand why people fear success, there was something else to it. Afraid to work for fear of changing, getting healthier and feeling better? Then one day, while talking we discovered the why. At 10 years old, Cheryl was fully developed. Having an 11 year old, I know how innocent that age still is, or can be. She had a body and that body was getting looks that a 10 year old brain could not comprehend. She just knew it didn’t feel good. So the weight started climbing up. She was safer in an an overweight body because then her boobs and curves would not stand out. It took 33 years to crack that code! Now at 46, Cheryl has to make changes for her health. She has diabetes, that is weight related. She has excuses. We got those out of the way. She is sedentary. That’s got to change. In fact, she hates exercise right now. Sweet. Even better, she’s been eating like crap. This is going to be fun! Having said all that, I believe this time she really is ready. That means going to a place she’s never gone to before. She has been on and off for a long time and is ready to be on with no off. This is for both of them because Terry needs it too. It will require shopping, prepping and being accountable week after week. With a BMI of 49 at 222.3 pounds, she has NO CHOICE.
