Congratulations to Rocio, LIF’s – ‘Client of the Week’. In one week she lost 8.4 lbs making a total of 25 lbs, lost 22 lbs of fat and gained over 4 lbs in lean mass!
Rocio lives in Houston, Texas, where she raises her daughter and balances her career as a marketer, working in the energy industry. Rocio had been athletic most of her life and is ex-military, so knows what it means to make a commitment and be dedicated. She chose Live In Fitness for that purpose & accountability. Rocio became a mother to her beautiful daughter 5 years ago and her world changed for the better, but she no longer made herself a priority. Her weight steadily increased and in the last 2 years she gained over 65 lbs, tipping the scales at an all time high of 265 lbs. She had tried and failed many fad diets, which left her feeling tired, sad, and often depressed. She was then diagnosed with sleep apnea and high blood pressure for the first time in her life. Each day became a struggle of feeling hopeless, and feeling less like her former self, drowning in her own life.
The pivotal turning point in Rocio’s life was when one day her daughter found her double over with abdominal pains. Her daughter turned to her crying saying “Mommy, what’s wrong! Are you ok?”
Rocio knew she needed to remove herself from her environment temporarily so she could get the help, structure, and accountability, so made the call to Live In Fitness. She had great support system from her daughter’s father, family, and her boss, whom all supported her on this journey.
When asked, how do you feel about the program and the progress you have made so far?
Amazing!! I’m starting to feel like my old self. I love it! I knew there would be intense training, and I was looking forward to it, but my biggest surprise were the meals, the education from the lectures, and Live In Fitness’ professional team. We sometimes think we know and have heard it all, when in actuality we miss the most simple, and often important, things in our life. The teachings in Eric’s ‘LIF Plan: Power of 4’ when applied really do start to peel the layers away in your life. What holds us back most is the fear of failure. To me failure is not trying… The program has really helped me put my life back into perspective and the realization that it is alright to reach out and ask for help. So far my experience has been amazing. I love everything, and I’m not exaggerating!! If I had a wish I would probably just extend Taco Tuesday to Taco’s everyday!
How has this changed your outlook on Life?
It’s truly given me hope. I feel my inner personality reigniting. The assertiveness and drive is back and I am no longer tired all the time but now have energy. I know I can follow the program and now have my life back again.
What advice would you give others contemplating attending the program?
Don’t give up, you are here because you are tired of hearing your own excuses. Just follow the program and the results will come. I am leaving Live In Fitness with a renewed lifestyle, where I can inspire and teach my daughter to have balance and be healthy. I am leaving with a strong bond and many new life long friends.
Don’t wait to make it worse. Get the help and start living your life! Stop doubting, life is too precious…
Rocio, we are so proud of what you accomplished here for yourself. Not once did you give less than your best, nor were you afraid to get out there, challenge yourself to try something new. Your unrelenting drive to always want more is a clear statement that you have taken back control of your life. Not only did you work hard on the physical, but also the behavior and emotional side, too. Always keep that spirit!!
