Why I Got Started

I have always enjoyed working out and have stayed pretty fit since high school. I was never conscious of my body and was pretty comfortable with myself since I only weighed 110-115 lbs on my high days. Even when I met my boyfriend of 3 years, the two of us started doing 5 am workouts together 5 days a week and I was enjoying every bit of it.

What I thought was eating healthy actually turned out to be all wrong. I did salads, whole grains, fruits, etc., but I wasn't balancing my meals throughout the day. 2 years ago I finished my master's degree and started my career. I started traveling a lot and slowed down on working out.

Before I knew it the pounds starting creeping up and I started feeling worse. At first it was just a few and then before I knew it, one afternoon I jumped on the scale and it read 126. So I did what most people do and picked up my cardio but I still wasn't shedding a pound. I was soon after diagnosed with hypothyroidism which explained some of the weight gain. But surely not all of it!

The thyroid medication was supposed to help with the weight gain but I couldn't see any improvement. I found myself constantly unhappy with my body, eating even worse to feel better and running harder and longer with no results. It was lose-lose situation. I met my trainer Kalene with GoTimeTraining online. We met at Starbucks to talk about my goals and her goals for me.

I remember thinking "what if this doesn't work, what if I never lose weight and I just keep gaining?" Although reluctant I handed over my check and got my packet in the mail a few days later. Today, almost 16 weeks later I am 108 lbs! I'm not skinny and boney, I'm fit and sexy. I work every day in the gym and the kitchen to fuel my body with clean foods to build lean muscle.

I love seeing my body change and pushing myself to a new limit. I look forward to my gym time to break a hard sweat and make it burn. I learned how to rev my metabolism and fuel my body with good foods. And of course I treat myself to the occasional treats!

Now that she's transformed her body, Asha's never looking back.

How I Did It

My biggest supporters were my parents and my boyfriend. My boyfriend would rave about the changes my body was going through. He never encouraged me to cheat or complained when I ate different meals at dinner. We put many dinner dates aside and although it was frustrating at times he worked with me around my meal timings and my dedication to the gym.

Although it took my parents a little time to adjust to my new lifestyle they too became my biggest supporters. My dad would bring home little things like low carb tortillas or organic bread and be excited to let me know he bought them for me. My nutrition was constantly changing and I wasn't always able to eat the things he brought home so the support meant more than he probably knows.

My mom adjusted meals at lunch by cooking separately for me the way I wanted to eat and she never asked why I couldn't just eat what she made. I worked with Kalene on eating 5-6 balanced meals throughout the day. My nutrition was constantly changing as I hit a number of plateaus. But I have an awesome trainer who has helped me each step of the way.

As I worked through the weeks I was more and more motivated to change my body. I posted pictures of fit people on my phone and in my room to remind myself what I wanted. On the days where I was weak and wanted to cave into temptation I looked at these pictures for motivation to keep going. I have come a long way since I first started and could never have done it without a good support system.

As I mentioned my meals change frequently. Now that I've dropped to my goal weight we are slowly working on building calories back into my diet to slowly promote muscle gain without the added fat.

Suggestions For Others

Not everyone will understand the lifestyle you have chosen to live. But you have to remember it is not about how they feel it's about how you feel. Eating healthy and balanced meals throughout the day is about fueling your body with good foods.

I truly believe that if you respect your body, your body will respect you. Eat clean, train hard and reward yourself occasionally. I'd be lying if I said that I'm not excited to finally start cycling in a cheat meal. But I also know how to limit myself and how hard I've worked to get where I am.

Take the negative things people say about the changes you're making to your lifestyle and use it as fuel to push harder in the gym. I have finally figured out that there is no magic pill, drink or quick fix that will help you reach your fitness goals. Cardio can only do so much before you're body stops responding. Nutrition and a balanced diet are 90% of the reason people see results.

Only you can make the decision to change your lifestyle, and if you want it bad enough anything is attainable. I found through my journey a number of people that were interested in how I was getting these results. Soon without knowing it you are changing someone else's life.

My boyfriend was so impressed with my dramatic change that he is now working with Shannon to reach his own goals. The best part about this is we are each other's support system every day. What more can you ask for in a workout partner and significant other?
