2004 Hollywood Trip
My name is Tristan and I am 32 years old, married, and a mother of two boys ages 8 and 4. I just finished the Slim in 6 program two weeks ago. It's hard to remember the last time I felt so good about myself. I owe it all to Debbie Siebers, the Slim in 6 program, and the products from Beachbody.
It all started about four months ago, late one night, when I was flipping through the channels on television. I stopped on the Slim in 6 infomercial. It caught my eye when I saw some of the before and after photos. I have always been about 10 pounds heavier than I would like to be, but I was getting closer to being 20 pounds overweight and my clothes were getting too tight to wear. This was a first for me.
Two months had passed by and I just kept getting more and more depressed. My body was changing and I wasn't doing anything about it. In the back of my mind I could still see the Slim in 6 infomercial, but I had tried so many different programs that didn't work, so I tried to forget about it. A few nights later, I happened to see the Slim in 6 infomercial again. This time I got up out of bed and wrote down the phone number. It was three days later when that "last straw" came.
My 8-year-old and I were deciding what to have for dinner, and he started talking about being fat. He said that we were all getting chubby and we needed to go on a diet. It shocked me that he was so concerned. I don't want him to have a weight problem at such a young age. It was time to change our bad habits and live a healthier lifestyle. I knew it had to start with me. I went to my drawer where I had put the phone number for the Slim in 6 program and I called it.
I received the program on a Friday and I read through it that evening. I began the 2-Day Fast Formula the next day. I was pumped and ready to go. I knew it would be hard, but I had to do it. My husband took my before photos, and after looking at them I was really motivated. I began the workouts on Monday, April 19. I was hooked after the first few days. The workouts were challenging, but a lot of fun. I really enjoyed Pushing Play every morning.
After the first week, I had already lost 9 pounds. I couldn't believe it. Whenever I was feeling unmotivated, I would just pull out those awful before photos. I did not want to look or feel that way again. I was actually glad to have those photos as proof that I was getting slimmer. The best part was putting on my clothes and noticing how much looser they fit each week.
When the six weeks were over, I took my final measurements, weight, and after photos. I did not expect to exceed my goals, but I did. I lost a total of 23 pounds and 15 inches. My body is slimmer than I ever thought it could get. I have so much more confidence in myself, my energy level has increased, and I am a much happier person. All of this positive energy is rubbing off on my family and friends.
My 8-year-old wants to start doing the workouts with me. We just took his before photos. I am so excited and ready for the next step. Fitness is now a big priority in my life. I hope I can inspire and encourage more people to Push Play.
This year my husband and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary, and I am feeling and looking better than I did when we got married. We have a lot of river trips planned for the summer and I am looking forward to putting on a bathing suit.
I am so thankful for the Slim in 6 program. I finally found something that really does what it says and more. Thank you so much, Debbie and Beachbody, for helping me achieve and surpass my fitness goals.
