We all have a story. We all have struggles. And the journey continues for all of us as we reach our goals and learn to live our lives. It is not easy so there is no reason to be jealous or feel bad when you see others succeed. I know it tends to make us all feel just a little insecure.
So just KNOW, that it is never easy for anyone. Everyone has their battles you know nothing about. No one is ever perfect at this game, they just learn to never give up.
Even you. You just need to keep going and never give up!
One of our Venus Veteran’s, Pam, was Tara’s local trainer and it’s how Tara learned about Venus. So the three of us (Pam, Tara, and I) decided to get together to put Tara’s story in a video and podcast (audio podcast is below).
Here’s what Tara wrote in her own words:
I have been on a long weight loss journey. In 2013 I decided to make a change. Weighing 211#’s, and not wanting to go up another pant size, I started eating clean and biking.
It worked out well with a weight loss of 40#. With that, I got comfortable and a little more lazy with my food choices.
However, I kept up the cycling a few days a week. By January of this year, I had put on a few pounds. Enough to make me uncomfortable.
I joined a weight loss challenge. I had some success with that, but again bounced back to the uncomfortable range after a necessary surgery.
So, with some input from friends, I looked into the Venus Program.
I’m a ‘stay at home’ mom, so the 3 day a week workouts seemed reasonable. I joined a gym and made my workout schedule with every intention of fulfilling it.
Three Venus days and 2 cardio days per week. The food was a tough hurdle to leap, but I managed to maintain a deficit on most days.
With the tools that Venus has given me, I am currently at the lowest weight since having my first baby 16 years ago.
That’s a HUGE milestone for me.
I also know how to keep improving.
The knowledge of my deficit calories vs my maintenance calories empowers me to accomplish my next milestone.
One of these days I will see the abs that are hiding from me now. I know they’re there and they’re strong, yet they still hide.
The ever changing workouts keep me from getting bored and help me to feel my progress in strength.
This is so MOTIVATING!!
I’m proud of my accomplishments over the past 12 weeks and can’t wait to continue along this journey.
