There are few people who are chipper in the morning. Gabs some how was one of them. I don’t know if it was because she felt our pain of being awake at 530a or if she is truly that smiley at that hour. Regardless Gabs was a treat to have in the mornings. Always talkative and always lending a compliment to someone who might be stumbling a bit. Gabie is just one of those people you can’t help but like immediately. Our love for Gabs might directly correlate to how delicious the cookies (or other assorted Paleo goodies) she would bring in for us.
If I had to describe Gabs in one word when it comes to working out, the only word that comes to mind is “eager”. I don’t think she ever said she can’t do something, it was always “let’s give it a go”. Gabie works very hard when she’s in the gym, not afraid to grab a heavier weight or to push just a bit harder. This tenacity yielded some amazing results. In the her short 12-weeks with us, she lost 28lbs of fat, and 16.7 inches. In fact at our 10 year Anniversary party, a co-worker’s husband didn’t recognize her and had to ask me to confirm her identity. I want to share an email Gabs sent us just one month into the program;
I just wanted to thank you so much for your encouragement and for pushing me to do more than I thought I was capable of. I was getting ready for work this morning and took a look in the mirror and was so happy and proud of what I saw. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like this! I wouldn’t be making the progress I am if I didn’t have a great program like this and people like you to keep me going. I was bragging to my husband about how good I looked and he said to me “It’s so great to see you look in the mirror and smile!”. So I just wanted to take a minute to thank you both so much. I can’t wait to see how I continue to progress through the program.Gabs – email (Oct 2014)
I unfortunately wasn’t at her photo shoot (I was on holidays) but I did get to see the photos and it’s exactly what I expected…. AMAZING! Full disclosure; I think Gabs is a fantastic person, which is probably why I think all of her pictures are stunning. Congrats on a job well-done… can’t wait to see your picture on our wall!
