Ricci’s Testimony

“Honestly, I felt trapped in my own body – I felt helpless, tired, frustrated and depressed as I gained all the weight I managed to lose before Covid/lockdown and some more. I avoided mirrors, avoided photos and noticed how it even started impacting my relationships. It brought with a lot of self doubt, not feeling good enough and like I will never feel good in my own skin. This place felt all too familiar, I have been here so many times before, I knew I had to make a change and find something I can maintain. I had to work on my relationship with food and with myself.

This Challenge re-ignited my passion for training. I have more energy, I can think clearer (manage stress better), I have more discipline/structure in my week and I am amazed at how much healthier and happier I feel. I feel like I have become more in sync with my body and I learned to love it a little bit more everyday. Food has always been my best friend, yet biggest enemy! I used to feel guilty every time I had anything that wasn’t included in my meal plan, I would label it as NOT GOOD and feel extremely disappointed in myself for not being more disciplined and avoiding it regardless of the reason why I was having it (cravings, family events etc). The self-talk was horrific. I would feel anxious and terrified that I have gained everything again and would force myself to train harder to make up for it. And so the cycle continued. Through the Challenge I have learned to be much kinder to myself, work on my relationship with food; everything within moderation; leave the past in the past – learn from it, grow and do better next time. I have also learned to start cheering for myself and surround myself with people who will do the same.

People have noticed my attitude/posture change more than anything. My confidence have grown so much, I feel excited for the future and all my goals. I have allowed people to label me in many ways due to how I looked/felt about myself… things like I’m not athletic, I’m not a runner, I wont be able to do certain things (due to physical requirements), I will never be skinny, at least you have a skinny face… etc. And the worst part of all of this is that I have started to make this MY TRUTH! I have amazed myself at what I am capable of – I feel more like me every day. I feel so much stronger and like I can literally do anything I put my mind to. I started challenging myself more and more to push a little harder and improve with every workout. I feel stronger, fitter, healthier and happier than I have felt in a very long time. I have also taken back my power and I am re-defining who I am and want to be. I still have a long way to go but I finally feel like I have the tools, support and strength to get me there.

Leiere, you are truly amazing! You have impacted me in so many ways, I do not actually know where to start. I have been feeling like I have lost my drive, ambition, creativity and just joy in work, fitness, personal life etc – I felt stuck. Your passion for what you do, your excitement, your goals and achievements are contagious and sparked all these things in me again – Thank you for being you and sharing so much of yourself with us!”
