Meet some of the Cave Girls I've been blessed to help
Hi ya’ll! I have always been considered “big boned”… especially when I started playing sports in middle school.
In High School, I was made fun of because of my weight. I wasn’t one of the super thin girls.
Once my hubby and I got together, I gained even more weight, which we called “love and content weight”. It totally sucked!
My self-esteem has always been super low due to bullying, but my weight was making it worse.
I had tried multiple diets, simply not eating except 1x per day, only eating 500 calories a day, working out til I would literally faint. Nothing was working. Then came my journey here.
I started this journey on January 1, after seeing a few pictures of me during summer and worse, the holidays. I was at my absolute heaviest, 231lbs. I couldn’t bare seeing photos of myself.
I was drained. I hated looking in the mirror. I needed a change; for myself. I have 2 young kiddos, one being ASD. I needed the energy to keep up, and honestly, was feeling like I’d be lucky to see them grow up. I needed this for them, and my husband. I had those thoughts of “why is he with me…. I’m gross!”
I simply needed to just give this a shot and see what would happen. Here I am today, down 73lbs! I feel amazing. My goal was always 160lbs, which I have now past! I am down 4 pant sizes, 2 shirt sizes, and absolutely loving life! I am so ready to keep going with this lifestyle change and help others succeed along the way!!
I am a little older than a lot of you! I had been overweight for 30+ years and diagnosed as type 2 for the last 8 yrs also. Diabetes can ruin your health and cut your life short! I wanted to be around for my beautiful grandchildren, so when Michelle started the first group, I jumped right in.
I can not tell you that this will be easy, it takes some mental and physical preparation to be successful, but if you follow the plan, IT WILL WORK!! I was in the first group in October, I would tear up every time I stepped on the scale because I couldn’t believe how fast the weight was coming off!!
I’ve lost 28 pounds and will probably go into maintenance mode at 30, which was my goal. I have to tell you, that I still don’t see myself as a small person, I have to work on my mental image of myself every day!! 😊
I do not take meds for type 2 any longer and the foot and leg pain is gone!! I am healthy and feeling great! Stay on the path! You will love the new you!!!
My name is Elizabeth. September 2016, something finally just hit me that I needed to make some major changes because I was not happy with myself and my appearance.
As scared as I was to make that change its something I knew I needed to do and boy am I glad I did because I did not like the person I was seeing in the mirror.
For the longest time, I knew I needed to do something but I just couldn’t get myself to do anything about and one day I felt I was mentally ready for this and that was so much easier for me to make these changes.
I currently have a HOUSE FULL OF people that are always making all kinds of foods, but I am committed to myself to not give in.
I make myself my own meals and even take my own foods, I would go to restaurants and choose healthy meals and drink lots of water if I was tempted to give in at all.
These are my personal Low Carb Cave Girl results and I can not wait for you to have your own!
I’m Trista. So a little back story of how I got to where I am today. My weight loss journey has been a long one. Started back in 2014 and within the first 1.5 years, I lost 50lbs.
Then as you know life happens and I slowly saw that weight creep back on, and I gained 30 of those 50 back…waaaa…waaaa!!! Then back in September, I had surgery and I vowed after I started feeling better I was gonna get back on track.
Well I just couldn’t get my mind set right. Then come January 1st 2017, I kept seeing people on Michelle’s low carb challenges and I was fricken jealous!!! I wanted to be one of those people seeing incredible results.
I officially started low carb on January 31st. And I was losing weight and feeling great!!! Then I started seeing more of Michelle’s group challenge results and I messaged her and told her I want in on this!!!! I needed some guidance!!! She invited me in on this last challenge and I couldn’t be happier where I am today.
I started at 210 and I am down to 176!!!!
And I have a goal of 10 more in the next couple weeks and by golly it’s going good so far!! So this lifestyle change does work and if you have a slip up that’s okay just get back on track!!! I feel half the battle is mindset. Once that gets right all the rest will fall into place!!
I’m Tina and I began my Low Carb Cavegirl journey on January 1st after hitting an all-time high weight of 278!
It was time to uncover and FREE myself from a prison of FAT that was creating a barrier to all the things I wanted to do in life.
My last airplane ride I could barely click the seatbelt and the tray table couldn’t be down in front of me because my belly was “out there” “
I began with FEAR but I believed in both of my sister-in -law’s who have had amazing results with the program so I borrowed their belief.
I’m now closing in on 50 pounds lost. This has become more than a diet. It’s a lifestyle change.
I don’t crave junk anymore I crave healthy stuff and like it! I eat bell peppers nearly every day and now my chronic allergy cough is nearly gone. It’s rare. It’s been months now since I have needed cough drops!
So many unexpected perks beyond the weight loss I have been fighting for!
Hi, I’m Tonya, and I have been on low carb diets before, having little to no success.
The supplements, the plan, and the support all play an important role in my being successful. I feel like a new person, with a new identity!
I can’t believe how much my weight was holding me back in every aspect of my life!
I am so thankful Michelle introduced me to these supplements, this plan, and this group!
I have always been a person that has been concerned about my weight even where there has been nothing to be concerned about.
After my eldest son passed away in 2014 I put on a significant amount of weight and began to just not care anymore. My girls watched as I withdrew from life.
One day my youngest requested that we go for a walk which I immediately said no to. She kept asking and begging that I go outside with her and go for a walk. Eventually and reluctantly I agreed and we went for a walk.
I literally made it to the corner of my street before I could no longer breathe. That is when it hit me that I needed to do something otherwise I would not be there for my girls.
I asked my youngest to take a picture of me so that I could see the progress from month to month. I was devastated when I saw the picture, I could not believe how much weight I had actually put on and everything I was missing out on.
Seeing that picture for me was what prompted me to find something that would work.
I was already a part of a health and nutrition company and had been trying different products but never really stuck with anything.
I was watching some other friends doing this “lifestyle change” with Michelle Rankin. They were talking about learning to eliminate all the foods I had found so much comfort in and I did not know if I could make those changes.
The next time Michelle opened this “lifestyle change” to more of us I jumped on it. I knew the Low Carb Cave Girls Group would offer me a new way of life with the support I needed.
The group provided me with support, extra motivation, and most of all held me accountable. I really appreciated the way we were able to share meal ideas, delight in others weight loss, and encourage newcomers along their journey.
For me, my journey with the Low Carb Cave Girls began January 2, 2017, and I have lost 47 pounds in less than 7 months. I still have more to go however, I know that I can do it and do it in a healthy way.
Now I am able to walk, hike, swim, and bike with my girls which we all enjoy. Life is far to short to just sit back and let it happen I want to be an active participant of my life and Low Carb Cave Girls have helped me turn a corner I did not think I could!
In November 2017 one of my best friends encouraged me to change my life through food. I was overweight, didn’t feel great, and wanted to be all around healthier version of myself.
Fast forward one month, I feel great, sleep better, have more energy, and am down 14 pounds. I am wearing a pair of pants that have been in my closet for over a year and they are a little baggy in the waist!
I didn’t do this is lose weight exactly. I just wanted to feel better physically and mentally.
I have learned more about myself and my food triggers that I ever knew I could. I can’t say it’s been easy because it hasn’t.
I had actual withdrawals from Dutch Bros. I would pass one and my mouth would start to water and the urge to stop would be so strong I felt like an actual addict. Or walking through the grocery store and passing certain things would be the same.
When I started to recognize the powers these things had over me, I knew I had made the right decision to do this.
Thank you Michelle, for helping me realize so many things about myself, but especially that I am in control of my own body and what I choose to put in it. You have always encouraged and inspired me. I love you dearly.
Hey all! I’m Kim and I started this journey back in October. My whole life I’d always been the small one or was at least able to quickly lose any weight I put on. Then I had my second kiddo and that totally changed. When this group started he was about 16 months old and I still weighed the same as I did at my 6 week post partum checkup. Looking back at pictures I didn’t realize what I had let myself get comfortable with.
I’ve worked through a hell of a lot of mental stuff to get to where I am today. I know now that good food tastes great and the stuff I used to crave really doesn’t taste as good as my mind makes me think.
I am in control of my body and I now have tools to help me should I stray a bit.
This is a lifelong change, not a diet and it’s been the best decision I’ve made for my health.
I thought I “knew” about diets and all that, but I was wrong. So put all that you think you know in the backseat and let this become your driver.
Give it 100% and you’ll be amazed by the transformation. I’m down 18lbs with only a few to go.
