Michelle’s mentality determines her success.
I was introduced to AFS by my friend, Shawn Szalay. She encouraged me to give it a try since she was seeing great results. Since I’ve started, I feel so much better mentally and physically. The positive encouragement and community feel is the reason why I keep coming back.
I define my success based on my health. I have more energy, feel more confident, and working out helps me relieve my stress. My biggest obstacle was letting go of what the number on the scale is and focusing more on the way I feel and the positive benefits of my overall health. I am the main caregiver for several people in my family and knowing that if I do not take care of myself, I am not going to be able to take care of them. I have to take care of me before I can take care of anyone else!
Don’t give up! You may not think you are changing, but you are! Focus on small goals and be proud of even the smallest changes you make. My long term goal is to continue improving my overall healthy by exercising and focusing on nutrition. I’d like to lower my fat mass and increase my lean mass while incorporating the lifestyle changes Jen and I have been working on over the past year.
