I recently spoke to someone about the 21 day fix. She asked for some info, and I went to give her my blog post about my results and suddenly realized...I NEVER POSTED IT!!! My husband and I had been separated due to a relocation for his job and he came home the SAME DAY that I took my results pictures. After that, it was (date night, of course), packing, moving, and unpacking again once we got to (sweet home) Alabama. I wrote a post of my review of the program a few days before I finished, as I knew things would be hectic with our move, and I did put the pictures up on facebook (obvi), but I just cannot believe that I never posted my final results. So, without further ado...I lost .25 inches from each arm, .5 inches from my waist, an inch off my chest, and another inch off my hips! That's 3 inches off my body in 3 weeks!!! I'll take it!!! Can I mention I also lost 9lbs? In 21 days?!?!? Aside from the numbers, I felt smaller and looked much thinner in my midsection. It's been about a month now since I've completed the fix, and guess what? Surprise surprise, after being reunited with my dear husband, I put on a few pounds...Guess what else? After I realized that I had gained them, I went back to the fix eating program for 3 days and was RIGHT back to my end weight! This program is amazing. I cannot say it enough. The workouts are awesome, and even though I am not following the program 100% nowadays (more like 80%...I aim to do fix portions Monday-Friday), I have tossed the workouts into my rotation quite a few times since finishing. I love the fix pilates, upper, and lower workouts. For my cardio, being that it's perfect weather right now, I am enjoying running, and for my weight training I am doing my good 'ole standby Les Mills Pump. I am also using the containers constantly. During the 21 days I was able to use them to get a good idea of "eyeballing" my portions, but I still use the green and yellow quite frequently as measuring devices (I tend to under-eat my veggies and over-eat my carbs!). If you are thinking about trying this program, you NEED to do it. It has honestly CHANGED MY LIFE. I had no idea how off my portions were before, even though I was eating pretty healthy. I was eating way too many of some things and not nearly enough of others. I truly know now what it means to have a "balanced diet", and the best part? I didn't have to drive myself insane counting calories, and I was never truly hungry once.
