WEIGHT LOSS

12 pounds and kept it off (started 141# in Jan 2020, now 129# Nov 2020).

 

Heaviest adult weight was 155#. I am 5’5”.

THEIR STORY

My experience with behavior change was realizing that I couldn't lose weight alone and expect to sustain it. I needed the help and expertise of KKW coaches and the support group from the member page to help cement my new behaviors leading to maintenance.

 

I needed the custom meal plan services to remove the anxiety and mental fatigue associated with figuring out what and when to eat, and what foods will keep me realistically satisfied until my next meal, while allowing me the macronutrients needed to continue with moderate to strenuous physical activity most days of the week.

The support and tips from the coaches, and KKW ambassadors, was key in helping me stay motivated and engaged in this lifestyle that is not typical for most people in my family, work, and social circles.

TOP THREE NON-SCALE VICTORIES

Not as tired and irritated by mid-day
Learned that one off-plan meal isn’t a reason to eat off-plan all day/week

(releasing the “all or nothing” attitude)
Realized that meal prepping is the key to making my body changes sustainable.

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

No food groups were off-limits and I didn’t feel deprived. There are behavioral coaching talks/tips on the Member Page that encourage thoughts such as “failing up,” and learning to release feelings of guilt and disappointment.

 

They reinforced Non-Scale Victories as accomplishments instead of scale weight and expected speed of weight loss or body change.

For years I have struggled with body image, weight loss, exercise addiction, amongst many others things. I have tried almost every “weight loss” plan out there...weight watchers, KETO diet, drinks, shakes, fasting , you freaking name it I have probably tried it.

 

I’ve lost and regained, yet I stare at the person in the mirror and hated what I saw. I would exercise for hours on end daily, thinking I could outtrain my bad diet.

 

I would binge at night knowing I could wake up at 2:00 am the next day and run, ride my peloton, lift weights, do HIIT, and that extra stuff would be gone. Compound that with hypothyroid and autoimmune disease(which I am sure tons of you women can relate to), I was a walking disaster.

 

I had NO IDEA how to feed my body, how to fuel myself, and how to be happy. I would lash out at mostly my husband, because why not...he was always there. I would have little patience with my kids, and fall asleep at 7 on the couch, only to wake to grab some more sugar before bed.

 

My body cannot handle processed foods, this I knew, and I have repeatedly tried to cut out gluten and sugar, only to fail over and over again which would only make me eat more because I was angry everyone else could eat it...WHY NOT ME TOO?!?

THEIR STORY

NON-SCALE VICTORIES

This wasn’t a diet..this was a new way of life. A behavioral approach that is teaching me how to eat, what to eat, and why I am eating what I am. My coach has established my meal plan based on macros. I am eating 6 meals a day. I am eating BREAKFAST, which even when I was training at the PSP academy I skipped.

 

I’ll be honest, there are some days it’s a tough mental battle, when that drug called sugar has tried to lure me...but I am choosing my hard. Hard to skip the sweets, but even more hard to have hair falling out, rashes from processed foods, mouth ulcers, and a plethora of side effects from those foods that do not nourish my body, not to mention the depression that swirled through my brain of body hate.

This is only the first few pages of my journey. This is NOT a diet.

 

This is my path to a healthy lifestyle for the rest of my days. There will be days I fail I’m sure. But I am learning how to take care of my body, what to put in it and to seriously cut back on exercise. I will forever love to workout, but I will no longer use it as a crutch, but as a way to stay strong and healthy for my family, and to be a role model for my kids...especially my daughter so she has a strong and healthy body image.

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

I will FOREVER be grateful to you Krista, for sharing your journey, for answering all my questions and supporting me. I will forever thank my coach, who continues to be there for me, and cheering me on. And I will be forever thankful for KKWellness for this amazing program to help me be the best I can be.

I do not work for them, will gain nothing for supporting them...but if you have any questions on where to start your journey, I would be more than happy to share! If I can help only one person who struggles daily with their self, this post will have been worth it.

THEIR STORY

Most of my adult hood years, I’ve been all or nothing with weight loss. I would hard core diet and restrict myself and lose 15lbs, then gain it back. Since buying a meal plan in March, I’ve learned what it means to be balanced in my nutrition. I can have a treat and then get right back on track.

TOP THREE NON-SCALE VICTORIES

I can wear clothes more comfortably, I now enjoy taking photos (used to DREAD them), and I feel more confident in my skin. With my meal plan, I’ve also been able to come off acid reflux medication due to my symptoms subsiding from better choices.

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

When trying other diet fads, I quickly would drop weight but then gain it right back. This was a vicious and exhausting cycle for me.

 

KKW has taught me balance and how to enjoy myself without over indulging. Completely has changed my mentality and how I use food to nourish my body and not to cope.

THEIR STORY

KKW has changed my whole mindset. I used to think I needed to eat like a bird and basically only salads. I have learned so much about nutrition and how important of a role it is in losing weight. 

TOP THREE NON-SCALE VICTORIES

 I have learned to love my body and I love being able to fit more comfortably into my pre pregnancy clothes. I have also learned that taking pictures are key and not to stress about the scale.

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

 have used other meal plans and this is different because I had a consultation with a coach who learned about my eating habits, my schedule, what I like and don’t like and catered it all to me.

 

I have been able to continue consuming things I like and not force myself to eat things I hate.

THEIR STORY

Since starting with KKW in August of 2020 I lost the last 10lbs of stubborn fat from my 3rd baby and have been working on gaining lean muscle.

TOP THREE NON-SCALE VICTORIES

My top 3 NSVs so far are winning the KKW Fall 2020 Women's Lean Build competition, realizing that my "Mom-Juice" (aka wine) was not only hindering my physical progress, but negatively impacting my mental/ emotional wellness and my top one: finding peace with food and my body! I have been overweight as child, severely underweight in my teen and young adult years and then fighting for a happy/ healthy medium throughout my 20's and into my 30's, but never finding true peace with my food, exercise or body. Breaking the viscous cycle of my all or nothing mentality has been life-altering. It was the consistent and honest support from all of the KKW coaches and the KKW community that truly made this lifestyle change possible for me. I no longer waste away in the gym for hours trying to outwork a self-sabotaging diet of undereating and then binging. I now look at food as fuel and a form of self-care instead of the enemy. I am now proud of my body not because of the way it looks, but because of the way I care for it. KKW has become my lifeline & direct connection to physical, emotional and mental wellness.

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

The focus of this entire program does not revolve around your workouts, your calories or your overall body image. The core of this program is addressing your behaviors and mindset. Ultimately, you will never be successful with any health & wellness program unless your behaviors are addressed and modified first - this is why KK Wellness clients not only reach their goals, but maintain their goals.

THEIR STORY

Weight has always been a struggle- I legit would work out 6-7 times a week and essentially starve myself in order to fit in to clothes or see the number I wanted on the scale. KKW has helped me understand portion control, what foods fuel your body best.. how to think before I eat.

TOP THREE NON-SCALE VICTORIES

I can fit into clothes I haven’t been able to in years, my rings are loose, I can see my jawline better- the list could go on

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

Plain and simple- I wasn’t given the knowledge of how this all works. Before, I was shoving whatever supplement or fad diet my way until I looked like the girl in the ad...

THEIR STORY

KKW has educated me on things I never knew. As a Dental Hygienist that is very passionate about her health due to poor genetics, I have changed my lifestyle completely.

 

At 25 I was worried about HBP and potential medications to control my diabetes and was already on indigestion medications daily. I now no longer have to think about medications.

TOP THREE NON-SCALE VICTORIES

-confidence in label reading/educating others from what KKW has taught me


-Down 8 pant sizes (12—>4)


-found confidence in the gym/my body

WHY WAS OUR MODEL DIFFERENT FROM OTHER ATTEMPTS?

Sustainable life style, understanding foods and the the importance of fueling my body, having a love for food instead of looking at food negatively.
