Weight Loss Transformation

This month’s weight loss transformation started his program with Lifestyle Changes in March 2019; weighing 200 pounds. As of August 2019, he now weighs 187.4 pounds, losing a total of 12.6lbs and 3 inches off the waist. Most importantly, he feels energized!

What has this transformation meant to you?

I no longer take my blood pressure medicine, it is back to normal, and I feel so much healthier! I no longer experience joint pain and can get around with ease now. I am more active with my kids because I have so much more energy; which in turn gives me a better quality of life.

What did Dr. Darby’s weight-loss program do for you both physically and mentally?

It’s helped me reclaim my life.  I am now more active with my kids and another incredible bonus…it got me off prescription drugs.

Why did you choose her program over other programs?

Dr. Darby’s program offers one-on-one consultation, in which she personalizes a weight loss plan just for me. She tweaks or modifies the plan as necessary to achieve desired results. Meeting on a bi-weekly basis helps keep me accountable so that I stay on track.

How will you maintain this lifestyle change?

I have become much more aware of the types of food to eat and the foods I should avoid. I will continue to food journal to keep me accountable and help maintain my weight loss. I will continue to take care of myself by exercising regularly, getting more sleep, setting time for family and vacations.

Orange Theory Fitness

After you lose weight, the biggest struggle is learning to maintain your weight appropriately. One needs to continue on low carb, high protein meals, coupled with an increase in physical activity; to burn more calories daily! I need to preserve and build lean mass and improve my metabolism to keep the weight off.

In the past, I was a member of a local gym with a personal trainer. I became bored with the same routine and set out to find a class that excited and challenged me.  I heard great things about the Orange Theory Fitness(OTF) trainers and their one-hour, high-intensity workouts. I recognized that many of the people who were going there were showing fantastic results.

I joined OTF last October and haven’t looked back!  I am more toned and have built more muscle mass, while at the same time increased my endurance and strength. Most importantly, I have been able to lose and maintain my weight and feel AMAZING!

I attend OTF 3-4 times a week and participate in high-intensity interval training for one hour with a trainer. I like to be guided by a trainer. I am then held accountable for my fitness.

The class is a combination of 30 mins of cardio and 30 mins of strength training. The class activities vary each time as well as the music playlist. I like the group element to the workout; I get to share my fitness angst or woes with others and meet other fitness junkies.

During each class, I wear a tracker that provides feedback about heart rate, and calories burned. At the end of class, I am sent data from my tracker via email, which shows I burn about 500 calories give or take.

One of the fun parts of consistently having a fitness regimen is the fresh, comfy athletic gear I wear.  Check out this adorable outfit from one of my favorite brands, Niyamasol:

Here are a few of my favorite Fitness Tips:

  • Stay hydrated before, during, and after exercise!
  • Take a break to rest muscles if necessary.
  • Warm-up before exercising & Stretch after exercising.
  • Fuel body after exercise with a low-calorie meal or a protein meal replacement.
