My recent success began when I was invited and accepted into the “Breakthrough Fitness Family”.
I previously felt like I was broken; and I didn’t know where to begin, or even believe that I could possibly put the pieces back together.
My downhill slide began very gradually and comfort food slowly became my best friend, so I thought, which allowed me to eat myself into a very unhealthy state.
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and that was only the start of numerous health hurdles; such as, hypothyroidism, hypertension, depression, hearing loss, vitamin D deficiency, and the worst – kidney failure.
Prior to joining the “Breakthrough Family” my last visit to the nephrologist, wasn’t so good, she was quite concerned about my weight gain and pleaded with me to lose just 1 pound before my next visit.
My kidneys couldn’t handle the excessive weight, so she prescribed a third hypertension medication.
I left her office very depressed and had a full book of excuses as to why I couldn’t lose weight, hypothyroidism, bad knees, and no time to work out with a full time job.
Fortunately, my path crossed with an old friend, who filled me in on Breakthrough.
I followed her link on Facebook and at that time Breakthrough was offering a free trial.
So, I took a deep breath and started with one small step forward by signing up and taking advantage of the free trial.
It only took a few days to realize my new “Family” truly cared about me and put my needs first, coaching and guiding me into a new routine that has ultimately transformed my life.
Their support, guidance, and patience has allowed me to shop from the back of my closet!
I honesty never thought I would ever fit into those clothes again.
My short adventure and small success with my new “Family” has allowed me to regain my confidence and overcome a life full of obstacles.
I’ve realized my new friends are real people just like me, bonding together, there to lean on and to support each other every day, every workout, and every challenge.
Breakthrough is an amazing place with an interesting name. I would imagine we all have our own interpretation of “Breakthrough”.
To me, it’s a unique name for a remarkable organization, with an awesome family behind it. One which has welcomed me with open arms and given me the tools and guidance to enjoy life to the fullest.
