My "Turbo" Transformation
1/14/14 9:20 AM
Hello everyone, I started this thread in 2006/2007. I have been on and off of the exercise wagon since 2003. Started with P90, then had another child in 2004 and started Turbo Jam in 2006. From Sept 6, 2006 to Dec 2008, I lost 55-60 lbs. However soon after, I started gaining slowly. Unfortunately I have gained every pound back + a few. I'm not happy about it, but I don't want to dwell on what I did, but what I can do about it. I hope that with prayer, exercise and your support in my journey that I can once again lose the weight and keep it off.

God Bless you all!

Heather

RE:Starting over again!! (aka My "turbo" transformation)
3/30/09 12:42 PM as a reply to HeatherHaile.
I want to share my success with all of you that are interested! I started my Turbo Jam journey on September 13, 2006 at 236 lbs

I've always been kinda heavy, to my liking anyway. When I met my husband in 2000. I was 145 -155 lbs. I was happy with that. Still heavy but I felt that I looked good(enough). Then I quit working manual labor jobs to go to cosmetology school. It was a dream of mine since I was young and I had finally met someone who cared enough about me to let me fullfill my dream. However, I think I immediately started gaining weight. I was in school for 1 year and gained close to 45 - 50 lbs. Then I got pregnant, miscarried and got pregnant again. After the first child I purchased Power 90. I used it religiously for about 6 wks. Then I got pregnant again when my first child was 7 1/2 months.
I would start working out again and then after about a month or so, I'd quit again...you know...I had many different excuses. Don't we all.

Here are my stats from day 1 to day 768. I will update new with new ones soon!
day 1.......................................day 768
weight--236..............................182
chest---45.5.............................. 38.5
waist---41.5.............................. 35.5
hips----52.75............................. 45
R thigh-32.75.............................27
L thigh-32.................................26.25
R arm--17.5...............................15
L arm--17.5...............................14.75

I've been struggling alot this year. I do know that my job is more demanding, However that should be no excuse. I am thankful that my job is an active one or I would probably have gained half the weight back!


Anyway, I hope that you all take a look and if you have any questions, please feel free to ask I love to help if I can. If I can't I'll get someone to help you or find the answer!! Together we can change our lives!

Keep PP and God Bless!!!!!

Kristy--I know exactly what you mean...I've been a member of Beachbody for almost 4 years now. Unfortunately...I couldn't get my head out of the sand long enough to see what I needed to do ...for MYSELF! No one can get you off of the couch, no one can push play for you...you have to want it soooooo bad that it doesn't matter what kind of day you have had, that you want to exercise!! I know you can do it. Take it one day at a time. That's what I did and look where it has gotten me!! I know you can do this girl..maybe we can wowy together sometime!

Look at you! Way to go! We are shaped very similar... the lovely pear shape! Narrow thru the shoulders, wider thru the hips. And I currently weigh 212. I mean this with all respect... where did the rolls go on your back? It's like they've been cut right off! WHOA!!! You've got some serious total body shrinkage going on girl! At 212 my back rolls overlap like crazy & it drives me insane! Every morning when I get out of the shower & dry off I have to cake up baby powder in those areas b/c otherwise they'd rub together & get all sweaty. Ugh! I want my back rolls gone too!!!

I'm also a mom (to an almost 3 yr old little boy). I know how hard it is to find time to workout, especially when you have kids. And boy do I have a ton of excuses! I started jamming right after Thanksgiving '06. Then after only a 2 short wks I injured my back tripping over a toy. I got myself all healed up & so the 1st wk of Jan '07 I was right back in the game!

You're doing so good! Thank you for sharing your story & keep on coming back with updated pics! It's so motivating! I post over on the regular Turbo Jam board under a thread called ~Ripped Up in 2007~. We're like on page 10 already. They started that thread right after Thanksgiving '06 & we've continued on with a different challenge every 4 weeks. Sometimes I can't keep up with some of the girls who can do 2-3 different workouts in a row but I do my best & I know I will begin to see results too. I don't have any 30/60/90 day pics of me yet. 2/2/07 will be the 30 day mark for me but at this present time I don't really see a difference & I don't feel a difference in my clothes. I don't mean to sound negative. I know my results will come in due time. My husband & I want another child so I've got to shake & shed till about mid-summer & shrink as much as I possibly can till then. And by that time we'll probably be ready to start trying. Anyway, sorry so long. I'm gonna add you to my buddy list & favorites so I can keep up with your thread! I also wowy, at various time but usually somewhere between 5:30-6:30 pm ET. I go by the same name, snooksmom. My real name is Jeanna (pronounced 'Gina'). It was so nice to read your story & see your pics. Keep on rockin' the program!

P.S. My personal thread on this board is called ~Jeanna's Journey~.

I am also trying to lose the rolls and the weight that I have carried around for most of my life and your photos are proof that anything is possible.

Keep up the awesome work.

Jeanna, That is SOOOOO cool. We have so much in common!! shape, age, and right now...weight...I had a slight set back..gained 2 lbs this past week. However, I know why and plan on changing it!! Wrong food choices...UGH..always my downfall.

I can't wait to go check out your thread. I'll add you to my buddy list also. Thank you so much for stopping by.

God Bless, Heather

Sesilia..Thank you so much for your comments. I have always hated those rolls on my back. And it is very amazing to see them disappearing. I was very surprised. You can do it, I know you can!!



I want to apologize for being MIA for the past 4-5 days. I have an upper respiratory infection and haven't done awhole lot of anything these past few days. I'm gonna give it a try tonight. Not sure if I'll be able to breathe or not...but I'll give it a try anyway!!

God Bless all of you!
