Joni's Journey From 3 Surgeries In A Year To Losing Over 37 lbs
Apr 2 2020 — Fitness
Have you ever had something sneak up on you?
This happened to Joni Sprout with her weight. A few pounds here, a few pounds there. Nothing out of the ordinary, until she had gained thirty pounds.
"I would tell myself that I would shed the weight, but it didn't happen. When it didn't happen, I would get frustrated, and when I got frustrated, I would eat. It was a vicious and counterproductive cycle that I had gotten myself into, and I had to do something about it."
Joni knew that she needed to change but was having trouble finding a solution that would meet her standards.
"I needed to find a gym that not only met my schedule but also provided the group workout experience that I found to be enjoyable."
She struggled because other fitness brands out there can’t do what Joni was looking for. Then FBBC was introduced to her, and this changed everything.
Right when she walked in, she felt welcomed with open arms.
"When I walked through the doors of Fit Body Boot Camp, I was instantly greeted by the owner, Nick Alouise. He made me feel comfortable from the very beginning and introduced me to fellow boot campers. Everyone was so friendly and I immediately felt like I belonged. The trainers were amazing and were very supportive."
Joni was crushing it. Nick was telling us how she would show up every day and give her all. And she was starting to get some serious results but...
This all came to a screeching halt. All her progress came to a complete standstill. Joni had developed carpal tunnel in both of her wrists. After years of typing on the computer which required surgery.
These surgeries sidelined her, and she couldn't wait to get put back into the mix. Then she had to get a third surgery.
"I had just found a gym that I loved, and now I needed to take a break and get my wrists fixed one by one. And to make matters worse, I had to have an endometrial ablation as well. That's three surgeries in one year…"
To make things worse, Joni started having some issues with her life-long toxic friend, sugar. And it was sugar season. Joni rode the holiday sugar wave from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas to New Year's Eve.
This holiday season sugar rush can get the best of us. And it would have gotten the best of Joni, but being the badass, she is. This didn't happen.
After healing up from her three surgeries, she jumped right into the swing of things. Wanting to lose 30 lbs, which she didn't.
Joni lost 37.5 lbs and 35.55 inches. And had her body fat percentage plunged from 28.9% to 18.2%.
"My confidence is through the roof, and I feel better about myself than I have ever before."
Having three surgeries in one year, and losing over 30 lbs is something special. Only a person who never gives up, can achieve this. And we have a community full of them.
If you're showing up every day, doing your best to improve your health. You're one of those people.
