Success Story - Cheri
Hometown: Waterloo, N.Y.
Occupation: Hairstylist and mother of two boys
Accomplishments: Cheri followed Denise's program and not only lost 50 pounds*, but she regained her self-confidence and energy to start living a happier, healthier life.
I'm a mother of two beautiful boys, ages 5 and 8. Unfortunately, I had an extra 60 pounds to lose after my second baby was born. I'm proud to say I did just that, using the wonderful lessons I learned through Denise Austin's exercise tapes, shows, books, and Web site. Denise has been so inspirational, aiding me in my success.
I just made small changes in my everyday routine — I count my calories (but don't obsess about it), I got rid of all the junk food in the house, and I exercise faithfully every morning for 20 to 30 minutes — no matter what. It gets me up and going for the day, and I believe it definitely makes me a better person, especially for my family.
I take a little time for myself every morning to exercise before I get my boys up. Because of this habit, I'm in the best shape of my life, both physically and mentally. Consistency is so important! I have also been able to give up my bad habit of snacking on junk food. Now I snack on fruits, vegetables, yogurt, and cheese sticks — healthy snacks that give me energy all day long. Every day, I read Denise's newsletter and it fills me with so much inspiration. I love her Deniseologies; they keep me motivated! My life changes have made all the difference to me and to my family.
I've worked hard and have managed to lose all the excess weight after having my second son, and I feel better than ever! I have more energy, and I definitely have more confidence in myself. Anyone really can lose the weight! You really have to want it, and — above all — you must believe in yourself. Anything is possible! Thanks to Denise, this has been a life-changing experience! My new healthy life is really worth living!
Secret to Success: "The more you work at taking care of yourself, the more you really do get out of life. It is a great feeling! I'm a happy person because of my life changes, and I know that my whole family has benefited!"
