I signed up for a 30-day challenge with Rita Giegel Fitness because for years I felt awful about myself. I gained more weight then I’d like to admit over the past few years, and I had two babies within a 17-month time frame. I was losing weight prior to the challenge; however, I hit the same plateau I always do – the plateau I quit at and go back to my old ways. So why was I plateauing? After joining Rita’s challenging, I finally figured out the answer to the question I had been searching for years to find.
I was doing it all wrong. I was eating limited calories. I was exercising, but I was either eating way too much that day because “I deserved it” or I would starve myself and be carb binging by 7PM. I would do straight cardio, and I never built any muscles.
Rita has taught me so much. She taught me that you must eat a lot to lose weight. She taught me what in the world a macro was and made me a macro counting pro in a few short weeks. She taught me that working out doesn’t mean hours at the gym – 30 minutes a day at your home is all you need. She taught me that I should quit “dieting” and change my entire outlook on nutrition. What’s a world without donuts, wine, and iced coffee? A world I don’t want to be a part of. I didn’t give up any one food or food group. Moderation is key. What I love most about this plan is you don’t cut out any food groups – not even carbs! Cutting out food groups to me isn’t sustainable. I need sustainability, and that’s what Rita’s health and fitness plan is giving me.
In one month of working with Rita, I lost 10 pounds and 10.75 inches. These results are 5 times what I would’ve seen on my own. I’m so excited to continue to work with Rita on my weight loss journey. She’s absolutely the best!
I’ve been trying for over a year to get healthier and back in shape from having my daughter. I’d lose a few lbs. here and there, but nothing like I wanted. I heard about Rita’s One Month Challenge and thought “Why not try it?” I’m so grateful I did. My body is changing, not only in losing weight, but toning up. I truly enjoy the workouts, and they are doable on a busy schedule. To top all that, Rita has been super supportive, real, honest and knowledgeable. She has helped me to finally begin to achieve my goal I’ve tried on my own to achieve for over a year.
I learned so much about food and how my body works, that I have, and will continue to be able to apply to my life. It’s not a quick, temporary fix or diet. it’s knowledge that changed my body and my life.
