How Fit Mom, Alison Feinauer Made An Incredible
FITBODY Online Personal Training Transformation
I was not an athlete or in any sports growing up, so I didn’t have any training in nutrition or exercise. I was always the “thick” girl until high school when I developed an Eating Disorder...
I went through college battling it and then somehow overcame it for several years. It would creep back up once in a while with a binge here and there. I continued to yo-yo diet and always had a plan to start again on “Monday”. I always thought the less I ate the better off I was. So somedays it was 500 calories, but then I’d follow it with a day of 3000 calories because I was deprived or emotionally struggling. So my metabolism was shot. I was very discouraged and had no direction.
I weighed myself every single day and that number either tanked my mood or made my day. I was very good about working out though, I lifted weights, went to lots of classes at the gym, read every magazine article on the market and I’ve ran 6 marathons so everyone has always thought that I’m healthy.
I had a baby 2 years ago and gained about 60 lbs – 185 lbs at 5’2′′. I was determined to get the weight back off so I did that mostly by not eating much. My Eating Disorder reared it’s ugly head again!
This past year we had a service at church that talked about the power of confession. I decided to confess to a trusted friend that I was struggling with this, she prayed with me and immediately I felt healed. Shortly after that confession, I realized it was going to be a Healing Journey. I needed to retrain my mind and body how to eat and workout as a healthy lifestyle and not a “diet” mindset.
“Our bodies are a gift from God. It’s our responsibility to take care of them. Living fit gives me energy, strength, good rest, joy, and self-control!”
That is when I reached out to Julie Lohre and began my own journey to my FITBODY Lifestyle. I knew that I needed knowledge, compassion, strength and support. I’ve found the strength in God to look my struggles in the face and deal with them – the root of them. Asking Julie to walk on this journey with me and teach me was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
We need systems and people in our lives to give us guidance and help us along the journey of life. I’m so thankful for her. After being on her
FITBODY program for 8 weeks – I can say now that I have not skipped a meal, I have not binged, I have had very little processed food, I haven’t missed a workout. I’m not married to the scale or it’s numbers anymore, my emotions are not a roller coaster anymore, I have crazy amounts of energy, sleep very well, I feel whole and healed!
I am a new person...from the inside out!
Over the last 6 months, I have continued this journey and have changed so much! I’ve lost a total of 16 inches. What’s been amazing is that the parts of my body that I struggled with the most – my hips and booty finally changed! They are a different shape – it’s amazing the power of the right food and working out have over your body. I love my body... I love my life!
