Regrann from @bodysystemsnutrition - For Joanne Emeneau from Guelph, the last round of the BSTC was her 4th.
The round was a special one for her, as she had an “a-ha” moment. “My expectations always included numbers dropping drastically on the scale” she tells us, and when that didn’t happen, she would get discouraged. “But then I saw some photographs on social media of women who were the same weight in two photos but who had drastically recomposed their bodies with muscle in the after photo. It was then that I took stock of what was happening with my body”. Her shoulders were getting stronger and shapelier. She was standing taller and straighter. Her butt was higher and rounder. Her quads were more defined.
All great change, even though the numbers on the scale weren’t dropping drastically. “People around me were noticing, and commenting regularly about the changes in my body (most thinking I’d lost more weight). I realized then that this was my actual goal. It wasn’t really to be lighter on the scale. I wanted to look firm and fit”. The scale is a useful tool in charting progress… but it’s not the be-all-end-all of your transformation. Joanne signs up every round because the Challenge keeps her accountable. She now knows that her journey isn’t a race, and she isn’t in a sprint to the finish line. “I can’t thank the people at Body Systems enough for the support and care they show for the challengers. I know we’re customers too but everyone I’ve encountered has been so genuine in the advice they give. Thank you so much”. What’s next for Joanne? Why she’s signed up for Round 2 of the 2018 BSTC of course. Her journey continues.
How’s your journey going?
