Congrats to this week's #TransformationTuesday, Andrea!
How long have you been coming to Nutrish Mish? What made you start?
I started coming to Nutrish Mish after joining a weight loss challenge at Orange theory. I had been going to Orangetheory for a year and a half but had not seen any weight loss results, and I was hoping the challenge would help spark some change. There was a free group session offered from Nutrish Mish and I decided to attend. I was extremely intrigued by the idea of approaching weight loss and a healthy lifestyle through a balance of not only exercise but also nutrition.
What has been the biggest transformation you have seen in yourself?
I never felt like I had control over my weight and my overall attitude towards food. I felt like the only thing I could do was exercise and maybe do a cleanse when I really started to feel I had gained too much. This of course never gave permanent results and I would yo-yo back and forth and feel lost, frustrated, and defeated.
Now, I have the confidence and knowledge to know that I do have control over my nutrition and my overall health. I don’t get upset with myself over a bad weekend or a change in my weight because I know that all is not lost, and I can get right back on track.
What made this time different then other times you have tried to get healthier or lose weight?
I really internalized that this was a marathon not a sprint. Also, why do ANYTHING that you are not willing to maintain, it is a waste of energy and time, and won’t give you lasting results. No more crash diets or cleanses for me!
I learned to make small changes over time that were reasonable and not too much for me to handle. Each of these small changes added up to a new lifestyle that I can easily maintain without having to work or think too hard.
What advice would you have for someone just starting with Nutrish Mish?
It may take some time to see results, and you may not love the small changes or think you can do it, but you CAN. I don’t fear any food, or gaining weight, or buying clothes. I put in the work and I gained the confidence to know that I can maintain my health and nutrition for life.
Favorite NM Recipe/Product?
The shake mix is delicious and great for when you just don’t want to think about what to eat.
