Today we are celebrating Casey’s Success!
Casey wasn’t coming to DAMY for a dramatic drop in weight. She had only a few pounds of body fat to lose. She was looking to become fit, lean, healthy and full of energy. Mission accomplished!!!
Casey – You have been a joy to coach since day 1. You make DAMY Health and the Bikini Body Program proud. You have an amazing attitude that is going to help ensure you succeed at everything you do.
I also want to say How Freakin’ Fit do you look?!! Amazing.
A little background about me… I was a stick thin kid, but around age 12 I started to plump out and spent all of middle and high school overweight (technically with an obese BMI). I am 6ft tall, but my senior year in high school I was 230lbs and a size 18/20. Never again do I want to be my high school weight! I took things into my own hands and through exercise and food logs I lost 98lbs and dropped to a size 4 over 6 years. During that time I was a Division I collegiate rower, we got 4th in the nation my senior year. So really know what it means to work hard and dedicate myself, mentally and physically.
I’d been doing weight maintenance for nearly 4 years now, and in that time about 15lbs very slowly crept back on, some of which was muscle, some of which wasn’t. I just really, really wanted to finish what I started and finally get that cut stomach! Plus I am getting married this March! Then honeymooning in Australia for a month. The perfect opportunity to rock a polished bod!
My DAMY journey really helped get me back on track and will continue to impact my lifestyle/daily habits. Over the 12 weeks, I lost 5.3lbs, 1.5″ off my bust, waist, and hips, and dropped 3% body fat! I’m pretty proud of that – especially considering I did the program over the holiday/Christmas season!
Since completing the Bikini Body program and carrying on by myself for a month now, I really sense an improvement in my energy and self esteem. I know what it takes to be healthy, and I am proud to live and represent the lifestyle associated with that!
DAMY has really helped me get back on track with my fitness goals, and re-kindled my passion for organic, healthy food by inspiring me with new and exciting ideas via the vast recipe library. Everyday for the last 4 months (I could count the exceptions on my hands and still have some fingers left!) I’ve started my day with a protein pancake. They are just so tasty! And there are SO many varieties and things you can swap in and out to keep it new and exciting. You can even switch up the texture by cooking it like a pancake or an oatmeal “scramble”!
Another thing I am loving is the homemade Lara Bars. DAMY has helped me over my weariness of the food processor! For some reason it was always this mysterious appliance stored in the back of a cupboard and I never used it, just seemed like a hassle. Boy was I wrong! I gave it a permanent place on the counter, and it’s easy as pie to throw in my choice of nuts, some dates, and maybe some extracts and have a whole batch of bars for the next couple weeks! I have a stash in the freezer at work and enjoy one everyday. Mmm!
I admit I was skeptical at first, not sure if I wanted to blindly pay so much money to start the program! But it is very much worth it, and you get WAY more than your money’s worth. Having one-to-one accessibility to Amy is brilliant, she always responds in a timely manner and with very helpful information. I love her positivity, always gives me a boost. The daily motivational emails are so wonderful as well, as are having all your workouts laid out for you. I never had to worry what I was going to do at the gym that day, and having something specific that I was meant to do really pushed me to go and get it done.
This has been a great experience! And really instilled in me the style of eating, so much that I didn’t really even have to think about it after a month in, and now over a month out eating any other way sounds crazy! It just makes so much sense. I LOVE a company that promotes natural, healthy eating and lifestyle. It’s the only successful way to get to where you want to be! Only YOU can create you. There is no magical diet pill, and to be honest the hard work needed to achieve your goals is completely worth it, instilling in you a sense of pride in yourself, and the skills/knowledge to stay on track the rest of your life. DAMY does a brilliant job getting you on this track!
