I have been truly blessed to have Lacy as a friend and coach. She has helped me transform my body into one that I am finally able to say that I love. I had struggled with being overweight for most of my life. Almost 7 years ago I weighed over 320# before I decided that I needed to change my lifestyle. I needed to get control of my heath in order to be a good role model for my niece. I hated my body. I was out of breath from just trying to tie my shoes and I had no energy. I was able to get my weight down to 200# on my own but I was stuck. I was doing a ton of cardio every day and I knew that if I tried another fad diet I was going to end up even heavier. I knew I needed to stop the yo-yo dieting cycle but I didn’t know how to take my health to the next level. With Lacy’s help, I learned that in order to get control of my weight, I didn’t need to starve myself. I learned that I was not feeding my body the right macro nutrients and I was not doing enough strength training to help me build more muscle so that I could burn more calories. Just walking, running, and doing aerobics classes several times a week was not going to get me to where I wanted to be. Lacy has been my biggest cheerleader! Whenever I fell of the fell of the wagon, all I needed to do was let her know what was going on and she was right there to give me pep talks to help me mentally prepare myself to get right back on track. She has helped me gain the confidence that I need to be successful and when I reach my goals, she celebrates right along with me. Working with Lacy has been the best decision of my life. I love this lifestyle and it one that I can maintain for the rest of my life.
When developing my nutrition plan, Lacy gave me the option of macro counting or providing a meal plan - I opted for the meal plan - and the meals are not repetitive like meal plans I've followed in the past! I have a range of foods to eat throughout the week and even my husband was excited about some of the recipes she provided me along with the plan! For my workout plan, she asked about my preferences. She asked about whether I'd be working out at home or at the gym. Since our family is still being very cautious (during the ongoing COVID pandemic), I told her I'd be working out at home. She asked about the equipment I had at my house and incorporated all of it into my plan! My daughter got me a Total Gym for Christmas and Lacy read the manual and studied the exercises I could do with it to incorporate it into my workout plan! I have never had a coach that spent that much time and energy to accommodate my preferences.
