Real Life Fitness Stories: Meet Francesca

A wellness story from a parent just like you!

November 1, 2019

What is your name and where are you from?

Francesca from Miami, Fla.

Who makes up your family?

Myself, my husband, and two kids.

Tell us about your struggles.

I wanted to lose my baby weight and love handles. 

What was the turning point that made you change the way you care for yourself?

In October of last year, a mom from my daughter’s school invited our family to their house for a playdate and pool party. A pool party at the end of October. Isn’t it nice? Yes, of course, it is… until the moment I was hit by a big realization. My son can’t swim, so I had to be in the pool with him, which meant I had to wear a swimsuit! With a drawer full of bikinis, I felt like I needed a one-piece swimsuit. Great! That party was giving me a good excuse to go shopping. But I felt like I was giving up the idea of getting my bikini body back and this made me incredibly sad. 

How have you implemented your new habits?

Back in January, after years of procrastination, I finally decided to find support to achieve my fitness goal and to become the best I can. I contacted a local gym, and within a week we met and came up with an eight-week plan. I took on a body transformation challenge and the rest is history.
