Transformation Tuesday – Nicole Pottinger
Why did you start Flexible Eating?
I was at a weight-loss plateau for a few months– I had increased my activity level but didn’t see any change in my body or on the scale. This was my “something new.”
What changes have you noticed?
I’ve seen a ton of changes – I’ve lost about 25 pounds since starting OYE, finally gotten down to my goal pants size (from high school!), and gradually added weight to all of my big lifts.
What has been your biggest obstacle that you have overcome or are working on?
I’m constantly working on patience and self-discipline. Nothing good comes easy, and fitness isn’t any different. I expected to be able to will myself into doing advanced movements (push ups, double unders), but practicing every day and seeing small changes has helped me tremendously.
What advice would you give to someone just starting?
Don’t expect to lose all your weight in the first few weeks. Or the first month. Weighing yourself once a week, or even once a month, helps me keep down any anxiety about my numbers. It just takes time!
