I’ve been a member of the gym for a little over a year. I joined the gym looking for accountability and assistance with my slow weight gain over the last few years and to increase my strength. My weight had stayed about the same but I had become more muscular. I signed up for my first Spartan Sprint race in April of 2017 with Team Veritas. I stopped smoking the Thursday before the race (March 2017). I had switched to vaping and started working on reducing my nicotine level in the vape. I then completed the Spartan Super by myself in May and then decided I was going to run the Spartan Beast in late October. Despite the increase in workouts and runs, I was still gaining weight. I stopped vaping in late October and I topped the scale with about a 10 to 15lb weight gain since quitting smoking.
I had tried several different things on my part without success to try to lose the weight. In passing at the gym, I was heckled into signing up for the on Fleek program by a fellow Veritas family member. I was skeptical as I hadn’t been successful with anything I had tried, but what could it hurt? I had nothing to loose besides some extra weight.
I have followed the meal plan alone almost to the T. I learned that I can be a grown up and learn to cook and eat different things. I learned that Brussel sprouts aren’t nearly as bad as they were when I tried them 20 years ago, and despite a life long hatred for fish, I can eat Salmon without gagging. It actually isn’t that bad (still not that great either). I have tried all kinds of new vegetables and even turkey burgers weren’t that bad. I found myself eating smaller portions and feeling full. I wasn’t able to stick to the 4 workouts a week due to my work schedule, but I kept at it with what I could do.
I surprised myself with the significant weight loss (10 lbs in just under 4 weeks) that I have achieved. I have a few more lbs that I would like to lose, but I am on the right track now thanks to the On Fleek program! I am looking forward to what the future has in store 🙂
