Okay, long story short (not that short). As I mentionned a while ago my wife was pregnant. Sadly she lost the baby at the 8 weeks mark (oddly it happened the day after she received the H1N1 vaccine). During those weeks (and some months prior) she had gained a lot of weight.
Obviously at the termination of the pregnancy she was not only shaken psychologically, she hated how she looked.
She has never been someone to love training, so she had her work cut out for her.
Well in 10 weeks she lost 28lbs and she can start to see decent abdominal definition.
But the best part is that now she loves training!
I've had clients lose more than 28lbs in 10 weeks in the past. But it's not like my wife was 400lbs to begin with, she didn't have that much to lose. But I am especially proud of the fact that she completely changed her life habits.
She never trained for more than 4 weeks straight in her life, and at best those sessions were what I would call ''social gym experience time''.
She has, let's just say, a good capacity to throw down food and LOVES good (tasting) food.
She was keen on drinking a few glasses of wine at the evening meal. 3 glasses or so = roughly 500-600 calories and inhibits fat use for energy while it is in the system.
She LOVED comfort food (her favorite being chips and popcorn)
So going from THAT lifestyle to what she is doing now is quite an accomplishment.
She is now strength training 5 times a week (sometimes 6) using a combo of the HTH principles (explosive lifting), strongman stuff (tire flips, prowler pushing, sled dragging) and jumps.
In fact, she served as the guinea pig for the HTH fat loss program we are working on ...
She is also eating an almost perfect diet, and it isn't even an effort anymore.
She limits her wine ''tasting'' to 2-3 glasses on Saturdays.
Congrats Bebe Ge!!!
