BeyondFit Life: One Woman’s Transformation
Read what one BeyondFit Life member, Silvia has to say about her journey…
What I have embraced through the Beyondfit Life 1-1 coaching/transformation…
- Becoming a better version of myself
- It was not about my body being physically changed but my inner self being transformed
- The best success stories always come from experience
- I have learned to embrace my body and see myself as God sees me
- Learning to carry the title of “woman” with dignity, integrity, and conviction by truly valuing my identity in Christ and acting as is!
Being part of this community surrounded by wonderful women from around the globe has been such an amazing gift- a blessing BEYOND words.
The accountability and support, prayer and motivation this group offers daily helps me to navigate easier and positive through life. The program non only consists of workouts and nutrition; main focus is teaching women how to live healthy and balanced lives from the inside first.
Primary focus is inward strengthening of the heart (mindset change and perspective) to embrace femininity the way God designed women to partake roles in this world.
Before I joined Beyondfit Life, my life was a chaotic mess!
I had gone through a divorce and in order to fill the void I was feeling inside, I started to create unhealthy patterns of eating, exercise, and punishing myself for not looking fit, beautiful, and perfect enough.
Little did I know that I was heading down to a path of self-destruction and hopelessness. I knew deep inside that I needed help, desperately, and that I had to change this lifestyle.
My heart knew that there was freedom on the other side but something was blocking the way because I couldn’t do this on my own. As I continued in search for answers and solutions to my problem, I came across an AD about Beyondfit Life and Kate through social media.
I decided to join the program and fell in love right away, especially because of how differently nutrition and fitness was viewed from everything I had once tried.
Although I was still skeptical and close-minded of the differences, I continued to pursue mindset change and positive self-image through the continuous encouragement from all the sisters in the group.
Just seeing the honesty and transparency these women shared, made me realize that there is no such thing as a “perfect body” or “perfect women” and that REAL transformations take time, commitment, and consistency.
Since I had gone through many emotional and physical challenges, my hormones and metabolism were out of whack….of course! I struggled with amenorrhea (absence of periods), went from doctor to doctor and never found out “one true” diagnosis, only metabolic decompensation and PCOS.
I had to take high doses of synthetic hormones and meds to induce menstruation to go into further studying…..and guess what they found????? NOTHING! It was then that I contacted Kate and started working with her on a 1-1 basis. She started going more in depth with customized nutrition, workouts, supplements, and simple recommendations to lower cortisol and balance hormones.
I was marveled and yet, thrilled with the amazing results I started seeing week by week and month by month.
Although the physical was very visible and noticeable, the best thing I experienced and still am, is the transformation within me (inner self)- the strengthening of my heart and faith….. a radical change that led me to value my worth as a REAL women, one whose identity is rooted in Christ alone not social media, cultural norms or standards.
Although I’m still far from where I want to be in this journey of life, I’m very happy to be where I am at in this very moment in time.
My daily encouragement to keep persevering and gain the strength to keep doing so, is reading, praying and applying God’s word in all I do, seeking accountability and support from the BFL group, and reminding myself through these 2 truths found in Romans 12:2 and Proverbs 31:30-
“Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think……” (Romans 12:2) TPT
“Charm can be misleading, and beauty is vain and so quickly fades…” (Proverbs 31:30) TPT
Have fun and enjoy life by being the best beautiful version of YOURSELF!
