Jen’s Story

“I got a lot of my activity from playing soccer, but after having kids, I played less and less. After having my second child I didn’t feel like myself. I wanted to bring the focus back to me too. I wanted my energy back and to be a good role model for my children.

So I started by counting my calories, which helped with losing weight, but my body wasn’t toning. After that I started taking the IdealLean Protein powder and began Lindsey’s 15 Day Fit Body Challenge.

My favorite part of the challenge was how much I realized how much food I wasn’t eating before the challenge and how more food actually helped me achieve my results! I was always afraid to add calories to my diet in fear I would gain weight. But now, eating clean and often…is the way to go! I also learned that a 60 minute workout isn’t always beneficial to my daily routine. 20 minutes along with healthy eating…works so much better with my lifestyle.

Before starting the 15 Day Challenge, I couldn’t figure out what to eat and why I couldn’t see results. When I saw that the 15 Day Challenge had a meal plan I was excited because it told me what to eat and when. I was able to lose weight quickly with her meal plans.

After that I then did 2 rounds of Lindsey’s 6 Week Fit Body Challenge for more variety in the meal plan and workouts. Then I was really fortunate to get to be a part of Lindsey’s tester group for her 6 Week Fit Body Sculpt program. I then followed with 3 more rounds of Sculpt.

I Used to Focus on the Scale, Which Looking Back, I Now Hate. Now I Care About how I Look AND Feel.

I use the IdealLean Protein, IdealLean Pre-Workout, and IdealLean BCAAs, because I love that they’re low in calories, they are delicious, and work into the meal plans. I also struggle with my water intake, so the BCAAs help me get a little extra in. Recently I got the IdealLean Stim-Free Pre-Workout and love interchanging that with my regular Pre-Workout. They help me feel energized.

I trust Lindsey because I know she knows what she’s talking about. I didn’t lose weight until the 4th week in the Sculpt program, which showed me I needed to trust the process and not be hard on myself.

It’s So Important to Love Yourself and do This for Yourself.

I look back at 2014 (185 lbs), a year after I had my second baby boy and I didn’t feel like myself. So I started a weight loss competition at work and ended up winning it! During that time I counted every calorie that went into my body. I continued to do so afterward and dropped some more.

I didn’t find this super enjoyable though, so I joined the 15-Day Fit Body Challenge and lost 5.4 pounds. Then with the 6-week I really felt like I had it down (141 lbs)! This is fun to me!

Before my IdealFit journey, all I kept saying to myself and others was, “I just want someone to teach me how to eat to maximize my workout!”

Who knew, a year ago when I found IdealFit, that it would bring me here! I have learned so much. I get excited thinking that I get to do this forever and I can only get stronger! Thank you to all of you and to our coaches and to Lindsey. This is amazing and I finally feel like me…maybe even better than me.”
