COACH SPOTLIGHT: Emerald Coach Sarah Drane
How many times have you heard that so and so is just big boned? Find out how Emerald Coach Sarah Drane didn’t let what could have been her fate stop her from finding her true destiny!
Being Big Boned Runs in the Family…
“I am a mother of 2 children, one is 2 1/2 years old and the other is almost a year old (feb. 9th). I am a part time Registered Nurse in an Emergency Room, but mostly a stay at home mom. I have played sports all of my school days and college days, but I have always been on the ‘chunky’ side throughout my life (except one year), always hearing that being ‘big boned runs in the family’. Mental issues with food and weight have been life long battles for me. At one point in high school, I was diagnosed with early Anorexia (didn’t need to be hospitalized or anything like that, but I was on my way to it). As I was recovering from that, I met my soon to be husband, and I did the complete opposite of what I was doing, and that was eating EVERYTHING.
From Pregnancy to Purpose
We got married, I finished nursing school, two years later we had our first child. I had gained 30 pounds with him and had lost all but 13 pounds. A year and a half later, baby two was born, and I gained 24 pounds with her and lost all but 5 pounds. 4 months after my second child was born, at the end of march, someone reached out to me about a challenge pack through Beachbody. I was instantly hooked, with the feeling of maybe this will be the time I can lose 10-15 pounds, but I was afraid financially to take that step, especially because I considered Shakeology to be expensive. In the end, I was convinced to try it and that I could always cancel. I started out with Chalean Extreme and started seeing results instantly (2 pound weight loss each week!). I was part of Cathy Beranty’s support and accountability group and I would never have been able to do what I have done without her. I started participating in Challenge Groups. I added running into my workout regime, completing 5Ks, and starting up a health and fitness ministry at my church. After I finished Chalean Extreme, I completed Focus T25, Focus T25 Gamma and Hybrid, and Insanity. Since April, I have lost 75 pounds, and a total of 48 inches! I am currently doing P90X3 and looking at doing the Elite Program afterwards. I originally became a coach to get the discount, and there was a couple of people who wanted to try it all too, so I shared it with them. I wasn’t actively pursuing to running this business until the beginning of this month. Since I have though, it all has exploded for me! Beachbody has definitely changed my life! And the whole being ‘ big boned runs in my family’ no longer determines my destiny.” To connect with Sarah on facebook, click here.Digging Deeper, Jessica Bowser Nelson
