Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was not confident, always stressing about my belly fat

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I personally wanted to have a beautiful body and living health was the choice. But I was inspired more by my cousin who had lost too much weight. She’s the one who introduced me to Fit Milele.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Fit Milele Challenge help you overcome that challenge?

Working out is the biggest challenge to most of us especially when you’re not ready to loose weight. You have to be ready and of course it has to come from your heart because we’ll know it’s easier to be said than to be done. Fit milele challenge is like a family where you see motivation everybody sweating and achieving results and this keeps you going because we all know why we started.

August 2016 when Janet’s journey started. With no knowledge of the transformation that was about to happen.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love everything about my 21 days fix because it makes you push harder… watching Autumn say I’m gonna thank her later makes me go even harder. The eating plan that comes with the program and the training we get in the Fit Milele group on how to eat right has helped me to maintain the results since starting the challenge last year to date.

Describe the results you achieved with your program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m so proud of me right now because having 3 kids with c-section is not easier.

  • My burst went from size 36 to 32 bra,
  • Pants from size 8 to 5 stretch
  • My waist from 41 to 30 I know I still need 3 inches down. But I feel great. Especially when everyone around notice all the changes in me.

How has your life changed since completing your program?
My eating has completely changed.. I’m very careful when it comes to what I’m eating working out has became a part of me.. I’m still on this journey for life.

How did participating in the Fit Milele Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I just love fit milele they’ve been a big help all through my journey. The reason why is because the motivation you get from everyone makes you go harder. I love my fit family!! I couldn’t do it without them.

How did your Coach support you on your journey?
No words to express because Doreen Sélly is an amazing Coach she was always there when I needed her she helped push harder even when I wanted to give up. You really can’t go wrong with her much love to you Doreen Sélly 😘😘😘

How did Shakeology support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity? (pass if you didn’t use any of these)

I love my supplement oh omg…. it tastes great and cuts down all the craving everytime I don’t drink I know for sure there’s something that I’m missing!

Any other comment you’d like to include?
Just wanna thank everyone in fit family. Let’s stay healthy because that’s where life begins

FAITH LOSES 17 POUNDS AND COMPLETELY TRANSFORMS HER LIFE

Name: Faith
Weight lost: 17 lbs
Starting weight: 162 lbs
Current weight: 145 lbs
Challenge start date: Jan 4th, 2016
Programs used: 21 Day Fix Extreme & Insanity
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The fact that it challenged me to push myself from my comfort zone. Insanity in particular has made me realize that I had become comfortable with basic workout that the thought of getting to do a moving plank was not possible.  Now I believe nothing is impossible  😊
21 day fix extreme was the becoming of me learning to control my portions. That being my greatest challenge, I got to understand that I could still eat some of my favorite meals but in controlled portions. This is something that I have chosen to adopt as a lifestyle.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My endurance in my workouts has improved .
My body has really tonned
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Am more energetic postive minded and I get to sleep even better. My self esteem has short up too, I didn’t realize it until when I started seeing the results that got me putting on pants I hadn’t worn in a long time.
How did participating in the Fit Milele Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
They became my accountability family. They were the people who kept me motivated and on my toes. There days you wake up and not want to push play but you see a picture of a member and you get the motivation.
 How did your Fit Milele Coach support you on your journey?
She took the time to advise me on how to control my portions. Break the plateau that I had experienced and also on what workout to incorporate.

Sara U First time mom Lost more than 40 pounds


Name: Sara U

Age: 20 years old

Mother of 1 precious baby boy.

Starting weight: 246 lbs

Her Story….

My baby is my everything ,he sure is and a mommas boy too. Not sure where I Would be without him.

Life has been a real hard struggle for me throughout high school and it was difficult for me to focus and keep my grades up in some areas because of my depression and anxiety disorders. It got so bad and I didn’t wanna go anywhere or do anything.

I was bullied a lot in high school. I was always the “odd” one or the “weird” one I guess I Should say. I always felt left out and I really just felt like I was somebody “Different” but in a not so good way.

Can You Target Belly Fat?

Can You Target Belly Fat?

The Short Answer

You’d better sit down because, believe it or not, you can—albeit not in the way you probably want.

If we’re talking spare tires, muffin tops, or that last bit of pooch covering your six-pack, then you’re S.O.L. That sort of chub (i.e., the kind you can see and pinch) is called “subcutaneous” fat, and you can’t “spot-reduce” problem areas. Instead, you need keep exercising hard and eating right to reduce overall body fat. Your genetics will determine how and at what speed the weight comes off, but rest assured that your belly will eventually shrink to more shapely (and firmer) dimensions.

However, if you’re “apple shaped” or if you’re sporting a big ol’ beer belly, that’s likely a different kind of flab called “visceral” fat. Research shows that it is, in fact, targetable, which is fortunate since it’s much more insidious than the subcutaneous variety. Residing deep within your torso, visceral fat wraps itself around your heart, liver, and other major organs, and secretes chemicals that fuel inflammation. Your best strategy for reducing it is to work out hard, stress less, sleep more, and make cleaner food choices.

The Long Answer

Subcutaneous fat is the kind you measure with calipers that flops over your jeans and adds to your chin count. It comes from the Latin for “under the skin,” and it covers most of your body. It builds up in different places in different people, although women often build it up in their thighs and rear ends, much to the appreciation of Sir Mix-A-Lot, Queen, Nicki Minaj, and Spinal Tap.

You can’t spot reduce subcutaneous fat, so if you have a problem area, you have no choice but to burn fat all over until your genes decide to focus on that area. Also keep in mind that subcutaneous fat is found between skin and muscle. Sometimes, especially if you’re new to exercise, your muscles will firm up, pushing this fat out and creating the illusion that you’re gaining more fat. If this happens, just be patient—the illusion will eventually vanish.

Generally speaking, this isn’t the most dangerous kind of fat. That’s not to say that subcutaneous fat isn’t hard on your joints or that it can’t lead to chronic health issues like arthritis. But when you read about fat being linked to heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, chances are you’re reading about visceral fat.

Visceral fat is found deep inside your gut, and it builds up primarily around your stomach, intestines, and liver. Unlike subcutaneous fat, you can’t pinch it unless you get all medieval on yourself. Some people call it “deep belly fat” and it’s been linked to all kinds of issues including insulin resistance and cardiovascular issues.

A little visceral fat is normal. We tend to accumulate more of it later in life thanks to a dated bit of evolution that assumes we have less muscle as we age, causing fat to build up to protect our internal organs. The problems start piling up when you have too much of it. The most precise way to measure visceral fat is through an MRI or CT scan, but your waist circumference can also give you an indication of how bad (or good) the situation is. Red flag numbers are more than 35 inches for ladies and more than 40 inches for the guys.

What You Can Do

The obvious answer is to stop eating so much junk and to get some exercise, for Pete’s sake! Beyond that, visceral fat can be targeted through a handful of basic lifestyle tweaks.

Sleep Longer One 6-year study on 293 adults ranging in age from 18 on 65 showed that when people increased their sleep from less than 6 hours a night to between 7 or 8 hours, they experienced a significant drop in visceral fat.

Exercise Harder A study on middle-aged obese women with metabolic syndrome showed that high intensity exercise did a better job of banishing visceral fat than low intensity exercise or no exercise at all. (Duh.) The women also experienced a reduction in abdominal subcutaneous fat. (Double duh.)

Eat More Soluble Fiber A five-year study on minorities ranging in age from 18 to 81 showed that if you add soluble fiber to your diet, and combine it with exercise, you can accelerate visceral fat loss. You’ll find soluble fiber in oat bran, barley, nuts, seeds, beans, lentils, peas, and some fruits and vegetables, including apples, pears, and Brussels sprouts.

Lean Towards Unsaturated Fats Researchers in Sweden fed 39 young men 750 extra calories daily for seven weeks. (They were fed muffins—really big ones, apparently.) The group fed muffins with saturated fat in the form of palm oil gained more visceral fat (as well as subcutaneous fat and liver fat) than the group fed muffins with polyunsaturated fat in the form of sunflower oil. Given that there are many types of both saturated and unsaturated fat, it’s unfair to categorically condemn saturated fat, but it’s still worth considering. Regardless, no good has ever come from adding a giant muffin to your daily meal plan—so don’t do that.

Stop Stressing So Much Stress triggers the production of cortisol, which increases visceral fat. The link is that simple. A little stress, like the kind your body experiences working out, is fine, but chronic stress can be problematic. Studies on both humans andmonkeys confirm this. Admittedly, telling someone to stop stressing is a little like telling someone to “be funny” or “don’t look at the giant mole on my forehead” (i.e., it’s easier said than done), but de-stressing your life is possible. You just need to be patient. Look into things like meditation or yoga, or just take a couple minutes each day to stop and breathe deeply. You’ll be thinner—and saner—in no time.
