After having my children (3) I had always been able to return to my pre-pregnancy weight of 115 lb. Three years after having my last child, I started to enter perimenopause without knowing that I actually was going through it. Slowly but surely the symptoms and consequences of hormonal changes started to take over. I gained eight pounds and my body fat went up four percent even though I was still eating the same and exercising.
I was very frustrated because I had tried changing my diet, attended multiple group classes, and had several personal trainers but my weight didn’t change and neither did my body fat percentage. I was not sure of what do to next but wasn’t willing to give up on my health and body image. I started searching the internet for exercises that I could do to jumpstart my metabolism and lose the weight when I came across MAX Workouts! It didn’t take long for me to decide that I wanted to give MAX Workouts a try. Not only did I enjoy the challenge of the workouts but started to see the results I had been trying to achieve for the past 3 years!!!
My weight went from 123 to 112 lb, my energy levels increased and some of my perimenopausal symptoms went away. The best part of it all, I went from a size 6 in pant and dress size to a size 2!!! I had never been able to wear anything less than a size 6, so not only did MAX Workouts and Shin’s encouragement help me lose weight but I definitely lost inches and gained more lean muscle mass. I started to burn more calories in the 30 minute workouts than what I used to burn in the one hour classes that I took or personal training sessions that I did.
My measurements are the following:
