Guest of the Week
Congratulations Laine!

Lanie is 56, from Vacaville, which is east of San Francisco, where she worked for the BART system. A mother, and now a grandmother, she became an empty nester once retiring. Lanie has always yo-yo dieted, 10-15 lbs up and down, then gained 50 lbs when she stopped smoking, but lost it with a healthy eating plan and exercise. That is, until she retired, where she felt like she had lost her purpose for life, feeling like she had nothing to do. Her day to day life was binging and watching TV.”My eating problem and weight made me feel weak, out of control. The simplest things would tire me out. Playing with the kids would take me a whole day to recover from, and that is the worst thing, because I love to spend time with them more than anything.”

She started looking into weight loss surgery, but found out all the work you have to do to even get the surgery. Her mindset was that you might as well do the work yourself, with exercising and eating right! But, she couldn’t do it herself. “I was to far down the rabbit hole with binging and staying home and watching tv all day” That’s when she considered a weight loss retreat, Once doing the research, comparing programs, Lanie ultimately decided the one for her was Live In Fitness!

Lanie has made amazing strides with her healthy and positive outlook. Her body AND mind continue to change in the supportive environment at Live In Fitness. She has lost 10 lbs so far! Doesn’t sound like much? We try not to solely rely on the scale, as it is only one way to gauge progress. This is why we suggest the Silver Testing, consisting of Resting Metabolic Test, VO2, Scan, and the Hydrostatic Tank. These proved that, although it’s 10 lbs on the scale, it is really more like 14 lbs– as she gained 4lbs in lean mass! That 10 lbs came completely from pure fat!! She continues to train hard and smarter, by increasing her mobility, endurance, as her body is re-firing and doing the work for her to become, and stay, healthy.

When asked about her progress at Live In Fitness:“I feel like my progress has been great! I’m walking so much better and I can’t believe what my body has done in just a short time. I feel so much stronger than I ever thought I could in just 2 weeks, wow. I think the accountability and all the motivation I get from the coaches, and all the guests, too. It truly is like a sisterhood here. I used to isolate myself, and now I think this is going to be what I needed to see that I need to put myself first and make me a priority every single day. I really think this program is changing my life! Without this, I would have just continued to not live my life and and sometimes feel dead inside.”​​

Her advice to anyone interested in the program:

“My advice to others that are doing the program is to fully embrace the program, because if you could do it on your own you wouldn’t be here. You should get the most out of this, as you can to not make your own program within the program. To those thinking about attending, it will teach you so much about eating, and how well your body can preform. It truly is amazing!”

Her quote:

Put yourself first, so you can be a better self for everyone else. Always remember to live in the moment, the past is gone and tomorrow is the start of a whole new day. Practice being happy, it’s contagious!”​

Congratulations from everyone at Live In Fitness!
We’re so proud of your continued success!!
