Through the magic of social media my path crossed with Leslie Hildinger's and I'm so very thankful for it. Leslie's story is so inspiring and shows, to use her words, "it is never too late to commit to the journey." Leslie, you are indeed a #FierceFemale, thank you for sharing your story.:
I have always struggled
I have always struggled with my weight since childhood. I tried every diet, every pill, and every fitness DVD but never had long term success. I would lose weight but ultimately gain it back.
After the birth of my second child I weighed 225 pounds. That’s a lot of weight for someone 5’1”!
Suffering from anxiety and depression, I lost weight but continued on that roller coaster of yo-yo dieting and up and down weight for several more years.
My life has never been the same
Five years ago I was watching an informercial for T25. I said to myself “I can do that” and told my husband we should order that someday. He said “why not today” and my life has never been the same!
Starting and completing T25 was a game changer for me. It was hard, but it showed me that I can do hard things. After that I completed Insanity and that was even harder, but it boosted my confidence even more. Since that first day I have completed many programs and health and fitness have become non-negotiable in my life.
Find a tribe
Julie has introduced me to a tribe of like-minded individuals which has helped expand my goals and has made me dream bigger. Not only am I more physically fit, I am more mentally fit and understand more the importance of personal development and self-belief.
It's never too late
Do not wait and make the commitment to yourself today. You’re worth the time, the effort, and the expense. At 50 years old I feel better than I ever have and as I look back on my life I wish I would have found Beachbody earlier.
It’s never too late though so make the decision, commit to the journey, and watch your self succeed.
Married to a college football coach, 3 daughters, Beachbody Master Trainer and Coach, Disney fanatic, aspire to inspire, serve others, and be a force of passion. Meet Julie!
