KEEPING UP WITH MINNESOTA TOP TEAM

Losing the Fat Man at MTT CrossFit: Major Milestone

Posted by Jennie Clark

Dec 21, 2013 8:00:00 AM

All this started when I joined a friend in doing an Advocare Challenge. If you want more information on starting the Advocare 24 Day Challenge or a 10-day cleanse package for the New Year, visit my web page for more information: https://www.advocare.com/130446300/  There are packages already set up. New Years Day is coming up and it would be great to start your new year off with a clean slate. You will have the support to help you start your journey and to take it as far as you want! In addition to the Advocare products I take, I am currently eating a low-carb diet with right-size portion meats and high quality fats. This type of plan allows me to do my own tinkering to find out what works for me. I will write more when I am done with the phase I am on now. For a sneak preview, you can find out more about it by checking out Jimmy Moore and his websites and podcasts at http://livinlavidalowcarb.com/blog/  

Jimmy has taken my emails and Facebook questions too; he is an awesome man! Lastly, I've also followed  Abel James' blogs, podcasts and videos on YouTube. This is  my favorite; it is one of the best informational videos on healthy eating perspectives I have ever seen. In a future post, I will list other recommended sources, though these two guys are my favorite; check them out. The other day I was shopping and looking at products that had weight limits and I thought, "oh, I can't use that; I am over the weight limit," and I had to do a double take, because I was under the weight limit and there was a click in my head - it was the weirdest feeling of excitement. I felt so proud of myself and I cannot wait to lose more weight to get under more limits on things. A major milestone for me: I have now lost enough weight to have my doctor sign off on my hernia surgery, which will take place on 12/16.  I went in to see him in May and it was a huge mental blow when he told me that losing 40 pounds was not enough. Now after losing over 100 pounds, it was enough! I know the reason he wanted me to lose more is to have better success with the repair and less chances of having it happen again, but his approval was still a huge mental gain in the process. The reason I got this type of hernia in the first place was because I was out of shape and did not have enough core strength at my last job where I did a lot of heavy lifting. In my next post, I will give updates on the surgery with more pictures. I want to reiterate that I have had some huge support from  Minnesota Top Team, which is where I do Crossfit.  Visit their website toto learn more about them. They do so much more than Crossfit ( Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Personal Training, and Yoga) .  If you do not live in Minnesota in the Twin Cites area, you're missing out. I love those owners and trainers! THANK YOU for reading my ramblings - the response has been overwhelming.  Please feel free to email me at  DJUELL30@GMAIL.COM or simply comment here in this blog.   Here is a picture from our Thanksgiving workout; I am hanging on to the rope, wearing blue. This is just one small part of the crew!
