I first heard about Natty Nutrition through a good family friend who started to look amazing! I started asking questions and was paired up with Ashley. I was very excited to hear all about the program and get started. One of the first requests was to take the dreaded "before" pictures. If you knew me, you would know I DON"T DO PICTURES! I took them, quickly sent them, quickly deleted all evidence of them, and sat in the bathroom floor and cried. It was this moment that I knew I was ready to change my life. The first two weeks were VERY difficult for me. Eating the same foods and adjusting to six small meals per day in my daily schedule was challenging, but I quickly found it was POSSIBLE. I learned to prepare one day per week, which allowed me to be ready for anything. The more strick I was to the plan, I noticed the weight falling off. I started to feel better and sleep better. My clothes started fitting better and before I knew it, I was shopping for smaller sizes! Ashley is incredibly encouraging and helpful. Quick responses to my questions and helpful tips are an email or text away. It was when I had to take the second set of pictures that I wished I had kept the first set! Just wait until you see them side by side! Are there times when I get frustrated? Absolutely! Sometimes I feel like I am working overtime and the scale isn't moving like I think it should. That's when it is time to relax and trust the process. It will move again! As Ashley says, "It's a marathon, not a sprint!" Staying motivated has been easy because the change has been dramatic! A quick naked 360 degree turn every morning when I weigh in helps remind me there is more to go! I feel like a new woman, inside and out. I have learned how strong I can be and that food no longer rules my life. Food is the most abused anxiety drug and exercise is the most underutilized antidepressant. Natty Nutrition has changed my life forever! I have been inspired to get my personal training certification as well as nutrition certifications. I now plan on taking what I have learned and helping others. If you are ready to step up and change your life, this lifestyle changing program truly works!
