Fat Loss: From feeling ‘worthless’ to body confident and beautiful.



Lisa had struggled alone with her weight for years, gaining more than 88lbs over five years.


Now she is strong, confident and happy again after years of uncontrollable weight gain which left her feeling depressed and ‘worthless’.


The 34-year-old sales director was 275lbs at her heaviest point, was eating over 4,000 calories a day, and was desperately unhappy with her body and the way she felt.


Nothing she tried ever worked. Ketogenic, vegetarian and juicing diets had all failed, and she just felt lost and helpless of ever achieving a long-term solution to her weight loss struggle.


Constantly tired, lethargic, and low on energy, she feared she had thyroid problems or diabetes. And after a doctor's visit, she was told she had dangerously high cholesterol levels.


With a family history of heart problems and diabetes, Lisa committed to change her life and her health for good.


Lisa reached out to me through facebook seeking a personal trainer who would train in at her home. She was adamant about this because she was extremely uncomfortable in her own skin and didn't want to be seen in a public environment. I met her the following day she called and learned everything about her. From her workout experience, to her medical conditions/injuries to her goals and much more. After putting her through a free initial session to see what she was capable of, I knew right away she had what it took to achieve the body she wanted. From nutrition to her training split to her cardio activities to her mobile software I provide to track her progress, we had her set up and ready to move forward the right way.


Sixteen months later, Lisa was unrecognizable from her old self after completing her 6-month program. More than 110lbs lighter, healthier and looking stunning with a whole new wardrobe, Lisa is thrilled with the lasting lifestyle changes she has made.


In Lisa's own words:


“You can’t describe it with words. It changed my life completely. I’m back where I was a long time ago."


“It’s like two different people. Not just physically, but mentally I’m stronger too."


“I am wearing mini-skirts that I didn’t even wear back when I was 25 or 26."


“I just feel amazing! I love myself now!”


Lisa has come so far over the past 16 months. To understand just how significant her transformation has been, it’s important to consider where she started.


Before getting on the program, her weight gain was out of control. She was gaining weight at an alarming rate year on year because of a poor diet and a lack of exercise.


“I’m an emotional eater. I think the weight gain started after having some issues in our family business. Then my mom got diagnosed with cancer. Then after my mom passed away in 2015, it went even further up. “I would be gaining about 22lbs a year, easily.”


Lisa knew it was time to change. She had seen ads on social media and a friend who had just started training with Steven in home but it took months before she was finally ready to commit after having one last go at losing weight herself.

“I couldn’t do it on my own. I tried, but I just couldn’t. I gained another 22 lbs, which brought me to 275 lbs.”

At the time, the one thing holding her back had been money. But seeing it as an investment in her health and happiness changed her mind.


“A few months down the line, I saw the amazing results my friend was having with Steven....So I said ‘That’s it! This is my only chance out of this.


“When I actually thought about it, I thought ‘this is actually an investment in myself. What am I going to do, keep all that money in my account? For what?’

“I can’t buy nice things, I can’t wear nice dresses, I can’t do any of those things.


“My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner!”


Lisa says her journey has been absolutely life-changing from feeling comfortable in clothes to being happy enough to take photographs of herself again.

“I struggle to show people what I looked like before because I don’t have any photos. The rule was no photographs. None whatsoever.

“The only ones I had were selfies. Then I would take 100 selfies, if not more from different angles so my chin was not visible.


“I would choose one or two photos that would stay with me.


“It’s a little sad because it’s five years or more of lost memories.


“Now? You can take pictures of me whenever you want!”


Lisa has one thing to say to anyone who is in two minds about starting a training program with Steven—whether it’s due to time, cost, or even if they don’t think the results are possible—' just do it!’


“You will never ever regret it. This was the best decision I ever made in my life.

“Seriously, the best decision. Investing in you, in your health, and in your well being is the best thing anyone can do for themselves.”
