It's always humbling to look back and see how far I've come on this weight loss journey. Sure, there's Weight Loss Wednesday posts but in honor of #ThrowbackThursday, let's rewind to post #7 where my trainer gives an inside look at what it's like to actually workout with me...
My opinion is skewed. This weight loss journey is my story but I thought it'd be fun for you all to get an unfiltered perspective from the woman sees it all, my trainer Karen.
"What on earth am I getting myself into?" That was the first thing I thought as I waited for Ellen to show up for our first meeting. I had never listened to the radio show but a good friend and former client emailed me and told me I HAD to reach out and talk to Ellen. When I listened to the clip from her show, every hair on my body stood on end and I just knew this was someone I could work with and help. I only ever take on clients that I feel I can truly make a difference for and she most definitely fell into that category.
"I hate running, I won't jump, I hate cardio." Way to make a good first impression with your potential new trainer! (Hence my, "What on earth am I getting myself into?" thoughts.) At first I worried that Ellen might be one of many people out there who think that just because they have a trainer and shop at Whole Foods or Trader Joe's that they should be losing weight like there's no tomorrow. I was so relieved when she proved me wrong.
Huge selection of flannels in every color, AND they're displayed with an accompanying pair of distressed denim. The perfect, easy outfit for a chilly fall day. Maybe a great option for the Hometown Holiday show!
Boots & Bags...oh my! Boots for every occasion! They're a fall must-have. Plenty of styles like: Combat, cowboy and everything in between. EEK! This huge tribal print purse has room for EVERYTHING I need during the day. I found all of these gems at Plato's Closet in Tacoma. Check them out!
