One of the best parts of being a coach is watching clients have those “ah-ha” moments, when a lightbulb turns on and they find the will to make a change. Deb took that step 10 years ago and has not only reached her weight loss goal but is also controlling her cholesterol without medication for the first time in 25 years.
“I started at Get Fit 10 years ago because I had just moved to New Hampshire and was out of shape and gained a lot of weight,” Deb said. “My jeans were so tight they barely zipped. My eating was out of control.”
Before joining Get Fit NH I had been on cholesterol medication for 25 years. Two years ago I was taken off of Lipitor. Prior to joining Get Fit my eating was out of control and really did not hop on the band wagon seriously until 2018.”
Deb participated in several of our nutrition challenges and a year ago was able to maintain those habits as her new lifestyle. In the last year, Deb has lost 50 pounds. She said the benefits have been more than just fitting in to smaller jeans. She recently ran her fastest 5K, feels great, sleeps better and has a lot more energy.
“I am in the smallest size clothes in 25 years and feeling proud,.”
It’s been a pleasure to watch Deb transform her body physically, gain incredible strength and achieve goals that are only dreams to most women in their 50’s. But “can’t” is not in her vocabulary. That is why in her 50’s she has lost 50 pounds, run two marathons, countless half marathons, 10Ks and 5Ks. That is why she can deadlift her bodyweight, do push-ups, front planks and squats. Deb is an inspiration to women who continuously tell themselves they cannot do something. With the right mindset and support system, Rosenthal shows it’s possible to make other people’s dreams become your goals.
