My whole life has been a constant struggle with obesity. At 25 years old I was nearing 500lbs with no real idea of how or why I had let myself get so out of control. At 26 I was told by a Dr. that I would either need to lose weight or accept the fact my life was going to be cut short, I had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic sleep apnea and difficulty breathing due to the pressure my weight was putting on my heart and lungs. At this time I began following my own strict low carb, low calorie high deficit diet. I lost 100lbs and felt like my goals might actually be attainable, until I reached my first plateau and could no longer function the way I had been. At this time, I began my journey with Block CrossFit. Through constantly varied high intensity functional movements and a meal plan catered to my individual macro nutritional needs designed by Caitlin Mckee and Bodymetrx I have been able to further my weight loss and am currently down a total of 210lbs. I am now healthier then I have been in over 15 years, I am no longer diabetic I have lowered my blood pressure to below the normal average resting rate and changed my once high cholesterol to a low and more healthy level. I am now closer than I ever have been to what my prescribed bodyweight and muscle ratio should be and with the help of the great coaches at Block CrossFit the nutritional guidance from Caitlin Mckee and the total body measurements and scientific data provided by Marly Paulos and Bodymetrx I have a goal, a game plan and a time frame to achieve what I once thought was never possible.
We could not be more proud of Staci! It’s not easy, there is no magic pill, but overtime her habits have been improving and you can see the results for yourself.
Staci still had “bad” foods that she loved but reduced her intake of these things significantly. It’s a process, you can still have the things you love in moderation and get results.
When I first started out on this journey called fitness, I didn’t know what to expect. It started off as just losing weight, but now it has become more about losing fat and gaining muscle. Through the help of BodymetRx and Crossfit Awaken, I have lost 30 lbs and have Pr’d on all of my lifts and gymnastic movements. Having BodymetRx track your progress really lets you see that you’re losing fat all over your body. Even if it’s just as subtle as half an inch. It helps you stay consistent and show you how much that pays off. The coaches at Awaken are top of the line. They all care about your well being and coach you on nutrition, technique, and proper form. Having BodymetRx there to show you the progress in inches, lbs, and all the other good stuff that you should know, really pushes me to get into the gym and push harder. Marly actually gets excited about people’s progress. She doesn’t seem to be just doing it for a paycheck. She doesn’t it because she wants to help people better their lives through nutrition and fitness. I wouldn’t go anywhere else to get my results tracked and checked. I highly recommend going to BodymetRx.
