“I call Vicki my guardian angel!
If it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be where I am today.”
Vicki changed my life and words can’t thank her enough! She introduced me to Shakeology and the 5 day challenge and loved the support I received from her! Learning how to properly eat, drink lots of water and do 30 minutes of exercise felt so good. I was also part of a fitness challenge and did T25! With these group challenges you hold yourself as well as others accountable. I loved how Vicki would work with us as a group and individually. With drinking Shakeology, eating healthier, and working out I’ve lost 41 pounds. I call Vicki my guardian angel because if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be where I am today. Today I can finally say I’m paying it forward.
“Never say never! Never quit!
Show everyone and most importantly yourself what you can do!”
I’m Haley, I’m 29, a wife and a mother to 3 minions. I have struggled with weight since after having my first baby in 2008. I also didn’t have anytime to recover my “normal” weight because I decided to go ahead and have another baby and then work on myself. So after having my second child in 2009 I started dieting and exercising, BUT it just wouldn’t work. I was depressed that I was not losing the weight as quickly as I wanted and honestly I just love to eat. Being from Louisiana and also having been to Culinary Arts my passion was food. I love trying out new food finds. This was not helping my cause, my new weight loss mantra. I did lose some weight but not what I wanted. I met Vicki in 2011 during my last pregnancy when she took family photos of us. I was the biggest I had ever been with this pregnancy. After having this last and final baby I was depressed and just horribly down on my body image.
I was friends with Vicki on Facebook and I noticed that she was talking about losing weight and her road to success and how she was using Beachbody. Now the only two things I’d heard about Beachbody was 1) P90x because EVERYBODY and their moms were doing it AND 2) this program called INSANITY that was insane! So yeah, I wasn’t about to even try but I saw that Vicki was asking for some to join the spots she had available for Beachbody. I decided I can do this with her help because I saw her awesome transformation. We “talked” on Facebook about what would be the best program for me and decided because of my love for music, dancing and time constraints (BC of having children), TurboFire would be the best option for me.
My starting weight was 245 pounds! Guess what?! I did it, and it was hard at first, but I got through it and after the first 90 days I was down 20 pounds and 3 sizes! So I did it again and after that I was down 16 more pounds. I was now 209 pounds but I needed to lose more weight to reach my goal! Now, since 2011 after TurboFire, Shakeology, 3 Day Refresh and avid Zumba classes with supporting friends and family it is 2014 and I am down 186 pounds, 5 sizes and only 16 more pounds to lose until I reach my goal!
Never say never! Never quit! Show everyone and most importantly yourself what you can do!
“Many people walk in and out of your life,
but only true friends leave footprints on your heart”
I never know how much my life would change when I ask for more information on a coaching opportunity post. Didn’t know why I had the desire to get more information. Usually I ignore those types of things and didn’t even know the person posting it. I Facebook stalked Vicki for a little; I loved her motivation and inspiration in health as well as fitness and wanted to get healthier myself. So, I said, “YES!”, to the opportunity. Her own transformation was amazing. Since that day Vicki Roberts has changed my life forever. Not only physically but mentality as well. I never dreamed of this whole new friendship that is more like family #fitfam. She is there for me through my struggles and my achievements. I couldn’t imagine life without her and our friendship.
Thank you Vicki for being you!
“She believes in you and in turn she has helped me to believe in myself.”
This woman, along with Beachbody, has helped to change my life! Vicki has put a fire in my life that I don’t ever want to put out. It started by joining one of her challenge groups and it just snowballed from there. It started by setting little goals (getting up early to workout) and those little goals have turned into bigger goals (growing my business).
Vicki is everything that a coach should be and more. She is the one person that truly understands your struggles because she has been through pretty much the same struggles you have been through or are going through. She has been there to turn my “I am afraid to fail, into you WILL NOT fail!”
She doesn’t let you tell yourself that you can’t do something. She believes in you and in turn she has helped me to believe in myself. I believed, and set goals that THIS year, I will get to my goal weight and I am currently 5 pounds from that. Vicki has been a big part of that accomplishment and I am forever grateful for that.
Thanks Vicki for all that you do!
