“Before Diva Squad Fitness, I had mostly had trouble with consistency. I would lose 10 pounds, and then gain it back, and then lose it again, etc. I had trouble staying on a program long enough to see consistent progress. I think that I was hesitant to sign up at at first because I was going back and forth between wanting to hire someone and wanting to try again on my own. I think I was a little wedded to the idea of doing everything on my own until I finally realized that having professional help might be the key to success. I came to a point where I realized that I needed help reach my goals. I had lost weight on my own before, but I was struggling with recreating that success. I talked to a friend about how she got in shape for her bikini show, and she mentioned that having a coach was very helpful for accountability. So she recommended me to Karen! I’m no longer shy about reaching out for help when needed.
I’ve learned a ton about what has made my progress continue as a result of this program: the meal prepping was especially helpful as well as focusing on intensity of exercise instead of just length. I liked the fact that Karen’s program was detailed and thorough. She was also very encouraging and patient with me when I asked 8943843 questions, haha. Losing fat and inches has definitely been a big benefit. I’ve also found that meal prepping is essential to losing weight. In the past, I always struggled with staying on my meal plan because I would have to make decisions all day long about whether something fit my macros or not. But with meal prepping, I only have to think about that once per week when I cook. That has been invaluable in terms of giving me the key habit that I’ll need to keep losing weight. I’ve also gained a lot more confidence in myself since this is the longest I’ve ever stayed on a weight loss program. So I feel like I’ve reached a new personal development milestone!
If you are thinking about joining Diva Squad Fitness, I would say to go for it. Having a coach/someone in your corner is more valuable than you might think. It helps to be able to ask questions to someone with a lot of experience like Karen, and it also helps to have someone pushing you and holding you accountable.
I’m most proud of the fact that I’ve stuck with the program, especially for this long. Three months isn’t a very long time, but this is the longest that I’ve been consistent with a diet and exercise program. I’m at a point now where taking more than 1 day off of working out per week or not meal prepping feels odd to me, so I take that as a good sign that my consistency these past 12 weeks has provided me with new habits that will help me reach my final goal weight and body. I finally feel ‘disciplined’ with my body, which is a great feeling. I feel like I’m in control of what I can do with my body, and I feel like I can carve it into anything I want given time and consistency.”
