physical transformation

only tells a fragment of the story

Now, don't get me wrong. It's easy to latch onto outer appearances. It's a tangible change that we can see and measure. 

What physical transformation doesn't show is the change and progression in our thoughts, habits and behaviors. What it doesn't show is the discipline it takes to stick to something. What it doesn't show is the dedication required when you simply, "don't feel like it." What it doesn't show is the persistence and patience that it took day in and day out to achieve something you've wanted so badly.

Am I proud of the physical change in each of my clients? Well, HECK YES! What I am most proud of is the way they've learned, grown and overcome the obstacles of their journey.

I’ve always been a healthy eater, but have found that I just could not lose weight. I was eating all of the right things and the scale never budge. Then I started FWTFL and realized that the foods I was eating were great, but my timing and portions were not. FWTFL gave me a game plan on how and when to eat to maximize my body’s ability to burn fat. I’ve lost almost 10 pounds in 6 weeks! Having a customized fitness plan to go along with carb cycling and intermittent fasting is a revolutionary way to lose weight and feel your best. I am a FWTFL girl for life!

Everyone told me, “Oh you’re breast feeding? The weight will fall off.” However, this was not the case for me. I actually gained weight! Post partum within it’s self was difficult and adding weight gain to the scenario really made me feel down and depressed. That’s when I decided to join the Smobaby program and I am so glad I did. I lost 10 pounds, I am stronger, have more energy and confidence. I have always struggled with my weight. I have tried numerous “diets” before but I wanted something realistic that I could stick with. Smobaby helped me shift my way of thinking about exercise and nutrition. I think of this program not as a diet, but as a lifestyle change. I am looking forward to continuing this journey and would highly recommend this program to anyone.

I have loved this program and plan to do another round of SmoBaby. It’s been very helpful getting my body back after having my second baby. I didn’t work out as much as I wanted to, but I am still finding how to balance working out and taking care of children. I’ve loved learning more about nutrition. I’ve had a very restrictive diet due to my son and Valerie has been so helpful in giving different options. I can’t wait to continue working with her and watching my body change and get stronger.

I never believed I’d be able to stick with the fasting. I still miss “breakfast” some days, but that’s as much out of habit as it is hunger. The fasting has also helped me to know that I don’t have to satisfy hunger right away with food. I was a serial snacker, eating at the first sign of hunger, and now I know I can push through and wait to eat. That also applies to after I’ve broken my fast as well. I’ve been able to lose 10 pounds which I’ve been trying for years to lose and finally found a program that works. The inches lost are also great-about 8. Still have a long way to go to be where I’d like to be, but I have full confidence I will continue with this lifestyle and finally feel good about myself again. Thank you!

I have tried a lot of workouts and a lot of programs, but this is the first one that I felt targeted every muscle group. With the smoBABY program, I was SO ready to get back into working out after having my first daughter and this program taught me the slow and right way of how to build back my core before I damaged any of my muscle groups. It wasn’t just about losing the weight, it was more about being smart with nutrition and gaining the knowledge I needed to get my body back to where it needed to be. I’m still a work in progress, but feel I have come a long way since having a baby. The accountability is great, especially from Val. She will do everything in her power to encourage you, motivate you and help you reach your goals. She’s realistic and she believes in each of her clients.

It’s official. I’m never going back to “before”. Before was depriving myself of carbs, hours of cardio, and NEVER eating over 1200 calories. After? After is days of endless energy, lifting to build strong muscles, and mindful eating. FASTer way has revolutionized my previous ideas on food and workouts. I will never go back to before. Also, I swear my butt has been lifted - and who doesn’t love that?

As a new mom of an almost 1 year old, it's been difficult to be consistent with working out. My eating habits were all over the place. Even if I did get to workout, I didn't feel like I was getting much out of them. Since starting #fasterwaytofatloss that has all changed! I feel stronger after every workout and my eating habits are so much better. And the best part is, I didn't have to make crazy changes in my life to get there. I'm still eating a lot of the same things, just being smarter of how much and how often!
