Helping women feel more confident in who God created them to be is my passion point. Above pounds or inches lost, my joy comes from seeing what women gain when they set a goal and accomplish it, whether that occurs inside or outside of the gym.
The women in the Myers Cross Training community inspire me daily, and I love sharing their journeys with you. I hope you’ll visit back here often to learn about their inside out transformations.
This is Emily’s story:
“After my first pregnancy, I broke my back when I fell from a horse. I recovered fully but didn’t realize the toll it took on my body until I became pregnant with my second baby. During my second pregnancy — when I had a toddler to take care of and now a baby on the way — it became obvious to me that my health was holding me back.
Once my baby girl arrived, I remember thinking, “I am having a hard time carrying my new baby and getting on the floor with my toddler. Something has to change.”
I reached out to a good friend, my sponsor coach, and asked for help. I needed to lose weight, but most importantly I wanted to be strong and healthy for my family.
I have lost 14 inches total since starting my journey and over 12 pounds. I am now a size 6, down from a size 10. I have so many NSVs (non-scale victories). To name a few:
- I am more disciplined in my life.
- I have my confidence back.
- I have more energy.
- I play with my kids!
- I can get off the floor without thinking about the pain in my knees.
- I can carry my kids without the fear of throwing my back out!
I am so thankful for Michelle. She has encouraged me and held me accountable not only in my physical health, but my spiritual health. I am so blessed to call her friend.
If you are considering getting started, remove your self-doubt and don’t compare yourself to others. Make your health and fitness an object of prayer. Know that you don’t have to do this alone. This is an amazing community that wants to support you in your journey.
