This S*** Actually Works!
By Carly Ouellette
As this challenge comes to an end, I decided to take my “after” pictures during the snow day.
I have done a number of challenges since I’ve been at AM but I’ve never made it this far. Well, what do you know? This shit actually works! I attended the gym 5-6 days a week for the last 9 weeks.
I followed the meal plans closely. I listened to the coaches and kept open communication. And most importantly, I fucking held myself accountable.
Although there is only a small scale victory, the “before” and “after” pictures show more than the scale could ever say.
Unfortunately, I was unable to make the “before” pictures taken from the photographer at the gym and I won’t be able to make the “after” pictures so I decided to take my own and I’m glad I did. I, personally, have not noticed much of a change in my body and have been so stuck on the weight loss aspect that I was blown away when I compared the pictures.
I’ve got a long way to go- but since I’ve joined AM this is the longest I’ve stuck to it. It’s true, there are no magic shakes or pills. It requires hard work and dedication and you and the coaches will be behind us every step of the way to help to get us to where we want to be.
I’m usually pretty uncomfortable showing these pictures of me, but I’m damn proud of how far I’ve come in 9 weeks.
Who cares about the scale? The pictures show it all.
So glad that I stuck with it. Can’t wait to continue my journey. Thanks for helping me to become the best me yet!
I know they’re not professionally done- but you can very clearly see a change in many areas!
AWESOME JOB CARLY!
