Mindy Ryan has taken an incredible weight loss journey, going from a size 14 to a size 6 and losing 35 lbs over the course of a year while working out at home!
Steady progress over time with nutrition and training programs that fit into her life is what has allowed these to become permanent changes for Mindy who is still loving her body and maintaining her results... 4 years later!!!
Hi! I am Mindy Ryan and I am from Laurel, New York. When I first began my weight loss journey, I was 44 years old and at an all-time high of 177 pounds. I saw a picture of myself that hit me like a train. I felt old, out of shape and very uncomfortable. I was so stiff I could barely get my socks on in the morning.
After one full year of having Julie Lohre as my online personal trainer, my weight loss journey came to an end and I reached my fitness goals, loosing a solid 35 lbs.
"I’ve gone from a size 14 to a size 6.
I haven’t felt this comfortable in clothes since I was 12 years old!"
I have worked with Julie Lohre for 2 years now and am continually impressed at what I have accomplished!
Now I bounce out of bed at 4:45 AM, 5 days a week. I love to work out! Julie always keeps it interesting and believe it or not, fun! (Although sometimes while struggling through an exercise I say to myself, who on earth came up with this one?!)
I did not think I was a typical Julie Lohre client. In her very first email Julie made it clear to me that her programs were designed for someone who has experience in the gym…I had no experience in the gym, at all. So I needed to learn the lifting techniques using the internet and Julie’s guidance. Julie of course was always available to answer my specific questions, always. But the most daunting part of the program for me was the food, I spent hours in the kitchen preparing meals. So when I started out I was overwhelmed with both the diet and the exercise routines.
Now I have a routine in the gym and the kitchen. I actually crave vegetables, I can’t live without my Beverly International Ultimate Muscle Protein Pancakes and I have no problem drinking a diet coke when everyone else is having a cocktail.
My only goal is to look and feel great for the rest of my life.
"I still haven’t stepped foot in a gym.
I do all of my strength training at home with dumbbells, bands and balls."
This last year has not been easy. I’ve cried and I’ve moaned but I never gave up. Julie is truly inspiring and she made me believe that I could do it.
