Retta’s Story and Hitch Fit Review:
I always struggled with the number on the scale. I was usually 10-15 pounds heavier compared to peers although they either seemed the same size or bigger but the scale always said I was heavier.
After having three children being 200 pounds each time I always told my husband I wanted to fit in those pre-baby jeans and I didn’t care if I was 100 or 200 pounds, because I felt I couldn’t use the scale as a tool.
In October of 2020 I walked into my chiropractor office just like every other time.
Tia greeted me and before she could even say hello, I asked her where she went! She was glowing!
She told me all about Hitch Fit. I left that office feeling ready, excited to start my Hitch Fit program.
I told my husband all about it, we watched her story on Truth Talks.
I cried because I knew I needed to do something. I was back up to almost 200 pounds and couldn’t blame a pregnancy this time.
Over the years I got anxiety that seemed to have become a weekly sometimes daily occurrence.
I tried everything I could to treat it but it was a short term fix. It was controlling so much of my life. I was surviving off energy drinks and diet soda which wasn’t helping with the anxiety.
Jan of 2021, I finally decided to try it once again on my own.
I joined some friends in a push up challenge, worked out periodically and started to feel better. I got frustrated trying to find workout routines and gave up once again.
October of 2021 something clicked. I finally felt mentally ready to make that jump to Hitch Fit.
I had managed to lose 10 pounds since Jan but knew that wasn’t enough.
I ordered my Hitch Fit online training plan and anxiously waited for Diana’s response.
I spent that weekend preparing and shopping the best I could. I ate the last of the junk food, drank the last energy drink and diet soda to make sure it was all gone before I started Monday morning.
Monday morning came and I had an alarm set early to do my cardio. That was the longest 30 min of my life.
I spent the entire time battling in my head how in the world am I going to do this every day for the rest of my life?
I had failed so many others times, how was this different. I started 3 weeks before Thanksgiving. Seriously what was I thinking?
I had a work event and they catered In and Out burger and wondered how I was going to maneuver this one.
I felt I needed to partake but didn’t want to ruin what I just started. I ate the burger with no bun and light sauce but extra veggies and enjoyed my lunch and didn’t feel guilty because I knew this was the new way of life not just a 12 week program.
The truth is……Not every day was easy. The scale didn’t move at times. The weights were heavy some days.
I looked at my water jug and didn’t want another drop.
These 12 weeks flew by. I don’t want it to be over. I don’t want Diana’s weekly emails to end.
I don’t want the weight to come back so this is my new lifestyle. It was ALL worth every hard day, dreaded workout, tears because the scale or inches weren’t where I expected or I was just plain tired!
The number on the scale now says I’m healthier, muscular and fit! Those pre-baby jeans were boxed up in week 8!
I haven’t been this tiny since way before babies!
Thank you Diana for the support weekly, guidance and believing in me!
Thank you to my husband and boys for pushing me, encouraging me and not letting me quit this time! Thank you Hitch Fit for the new way of life! I’ll be making a visit to see you one day!!
