Testimonies – I Lost 13 Stubborn Inches in my Waist, Abdomen, Thighs and Hips on Paleo & Crossfit!

Part IV:  My Journey Continues

Dani Rotramel at CrossFit AMMOIn the spring of 2013, when my niece, Shea, came to live with my husband and I, we were introduced to a new way of eating, called Paleo. In order to serve the food Shea could eat, I began learning some basic Paleo recipes, and soon, I was hooked! A few months later, I stepped way out of my comfort zone and joined a program called Crossfit. I shuddered as I went to each workout for fear I could not do what the group could do. Lo and behold, I couldn’t, but it was okay.

In seven months, I have lost  13 of the most stubborn inches imaginable in my waist, abdomen, thighs and hips. This has been thrilling to me as I address my life fitness. I have muscle definition in my arms, legs, back and shoulders that I actually have never seen, in such definition, before in my life. I have learned that I can do so much more than I ever dreamed possible when I trust God for His help and strength and when I take it just a step at a time believing that I CAN.

Be Inspired:

Romans 12:1-2 (MSG) Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.

You must put your whole heart into your vision.

Passion means what I believe is bigger than what I see.

Persistence will keep you moving forward, passion is needed to feed persistence.
