Body Back: A Journey for ME

I started Stroller Strides almost 3 years ago with a six month old and fell in love with everything about it! I started hearing about Body Back almost immediately and my first thoughts were "Geeze that's sounds good, but not yet"...about 3 months later I was preggo with baby #2, so I knew Body Back was something for much later.

While I was pregnant I watched some of my girl friends from Stroller Strides make huge changes and see awesome results with Body Back and still I knew it would have to wait. Baby #2 arrived and life (as it does with a growing family!) changed a lot! It felt like I was never going to get to focus on me.

When baby #2 was about 6 months old, I started to focus back on me. On my own and through Stroller Strides I lost about 40 lbs over that summer, but still wasn't where I wanted to be, I was just barely back to pre-baby weight. Fast forward a year, about 10 lbs crept back on and I knew it was time. Both kids were weaned and the hubs and I were finally in a place where I could take some ME time. I was so pumped to get started I kinda got going on my own a month before my BB session was supposed to start and lost 10 lbs just getting excited about the results of what the next 8 weeks would bring! I wasn't sure completely what to expect, but I was so ready!

The amazing, inspiring instructors with Stroller Strides and Body Back both helped me stay focused on my goals and helped to give me all the pushing I needed! At the end of BB I was down another 20 lbs and over 11 inches! My clothes all just hang on me now! I'm buying medium-sized clothes for the first time since college! Some may think "that's great" and stop there, but before BB even ended I signed up again because I know that I need it. I know that with the support of amazing, like minded women and mothers anything is possible and that by the end of the next session I will meet my goals. All of them!! The workouts are tough, the meal planning and clean eating is huge, but the results are where it's at! I haven't felt this good in years and now I know I can be the person on the inside and outside that I want to be, not just for me, but for my kids. I am just now realizing I have my Body Back and want to keep it! I can't wait for BB to start again!
