December 1, 2010 Profile Info
I am a mother to three kiddos and married to a wonderful man. I started with Max Muscle in September after having had an "Intervention" with my mom. She called me one day and told me that she was taking me out for an early birthday present. When she got to my house, she came in and told me to sit down and that we needed to talk first. She starts the conversation with..."You know I love you." At this point my husband starts crying and then I start crying, even though I have NO IDEA what we were crying about! She then proceeds to go outdoors and bring in her neighbor, Teresa Bravata, who I have been great friends with since high school. My whole birthday present was taking me to Max Muscle and getting me a nutrition plan and Teresa had volunteered to help me along in the workout process.
Everyone in my family could see that I was unhealthy, depressed and "not myself" anymore. I used to be an outgoing, fun loving, life of the party type of girl and that all changed when I put on so much weight. I was sick quite often and lived in my big & baggy pajamas. The only time I would get dressed was if I had a photo shoot that day. Otherwise, I stayed home to work in the most comfortable clothes that I could find.

Since starting in September, I have dropped 20 lbs (down 30 lbs, now!) and feel like an entirely new person. No longer do I have to lay down in my bedroom under the ceiling fan just to cool off since I sweat so bad just trying to get ready in the morning. Running up and down stairs...no problem anymore! I have found a new piece of me that was missing somewhere underneath all those clothes. My husband will now get all his XL shirts back, too!

I am thrilled to be continuing this journey with the Max Formation Competition! I can't wait to see how hard that I can push myself and to watch others doing the same.

Congratulations to everyone who has signed up for this awesome time in our lives!

Hugs!
Erin

December 2012 Update
Unfortunately, I was unable to keep up with my new lifestyle after the MaxFormation 2011. I put on 30 lbs after having not followed a clean eating pattern. I quit working out and fell back into my old routines. I know that I am not alone, as we all have our struggles with the yo-yo weight, but I am truly disappointed in myself. I busted my butt to get to where I ended up in June and I just threw it all away. I am back for another year and will really be focusing on my nutrition this time, which seems to be my downfall. I wish all of you luck in this endeavor you have taken upon yourself. Stay focused and do not let any drama get in they way of your success!
XOXO
