To understand what Live Lean means to me, I’d like to share a little story about myself. When I first discovered Brad and Jess, I had no idea what “living lean” meant. I was in a very dark place in my life. I was in a toxic, borderline mentally abusive relationship for almost 5 years, and really did not see any way out. When I say that they saved my life, I mean that in every way.
Not only had I went from 120 to 160 pounds in college but I had become a very cynical and destructive person. In that time, I was also in a car accident that made me put on 20 pounds in the 6 months I had to spend in a wheelchair. When I got out of my wheelchair, I did NOTHING but cardio mixed with extremely low calorie intake which caused my weight to drop down to 130, only to go back up to 170 shortly after. To say I was my own worst enemy is an understatement. I made poor eating and drinking choices and I also let the negative energy of my ex affect me as a person. I believed that I didn’t deserve to be happy. I allowed him to disrespect me and therefore, did not respect myself enough to care about my own health and body. And worst of all, at this point, I had flown across the country to be with him in another state without anything there for me.
At the time, I had very little resources so I turned to YouTube and started watching Brad and Jess. When I first came across their videos, I started off casually viewing them here and there. It almost seemed like what they were doing was just a fantasy that was unachievable. “You can eat like a regular person and be skinny, yeah right”.. I thought. I didn’t know that skinny did not always equal healthy and that eating less and less food was NOT the answer. The whole mindset completely rocked my world. The more videos I watched, the more I became convinced that they had something figured out. Their approach to fitness is unlike anything I had ever seen. Instead of criticizing, judging, and dwelling on the bad, their approach came from a place of kindness and inspiration. Instead of preaching to others and only showing off their bodies, they educated their viewers and explained why you do things a certain way. They had hundreds of videos, tutorials, programs, and so many resources you can use to get any results you want. When I was watching them, I saw a couple who had so openly invited the world into their home and shared their habits like it wasn’t a big deal. To me, it was everything. To me, their openness and willingness to share with others helped me see how much of a disservice I was doing to myself. I could see how they take care of themselves and I realized that if they could do it, why couldn’t I?
And so, I bought my first Live Lean program, Live Lean Formula For Women and for a few months, I did a workout here and there but found trouble committing. I still allowed my unhealthy habits to take control and did not see myself as a deserving person.
