Meet Kimberly, Who Lost 9 Pounds and 9 Inches!
My name is Kimberly. I am a 31-year-old wife and mom of 4 young kiddos. My husband and I are both associate pastors at our family church, and we love making connections with people and hanging out…you know, just doing life together!
I have been following Rachel and CleanFoodCrush for about 3-4 years, and I thought I could really start eating clean by just choosing some recipes online rather than joining the challenge, but it never happened.
During the 30 Day Clean Eating Challenge, I lost 9 pounds and 9.5 inches which is totally awesome! But even more importantly, I’ve lost my unhealthy love affair with sugary junk and an unhealthy mindset towards food in general.
Growing up, I would use food to cope with disappointment, failure, and hurts. I was an emotional eater from a very young age and it carried over into adulthood. Add to that raising a large family, working full time in ministry, and trying to balance life’s ups and downs, and you’ve got yourself quite a mess! I was heavily addicted to sugar, I didn’t take the time to focus on nutrition for my family, and I told myself it was all ok because this is just the culture we live in and everyone else is busy and eating crap, too. This is “normal.”
I’ve known about the challenge for several years, but never took the plunge because of the cost…I couldn’t justify it because it seemed selfish. But earlier this year, I saw candid pictures of myself at the zoo and I broke down. I was so disappointed in myself and tired of being tired.
I was the heaviest I’ve ever been, I never had the energy to play with my kids and I knew I wasn’t setting a good example for them. I decided then and there that enough was enough and it was time to do the challenge.
Hands down, joining the Challenge was one of the BEST DECISIONS I’ve ever made in my life.
After only 30 Days:
- I’m no longer addicted to sugar
- I have enough energy to do my job well and then come home and jump on the trampoline with my babies,
- My skin is clearer
- I’m feeling more confident
- My entire family is benefiting…and it shows
➡️ If you are on the fence about joining the challenge like I was, it’s time now.
➡️ If you’re concerned about the cost and wondering if it is a wise investment, it is, 100%.
➡️ If I can do it, anyone can do it, and I mean that with all of my heart!
Rachel and her team are incredibly helpful and provide so much support along the way. They’re there for you in the toughest times and encourage you to keep fighting for your health. They never made me feel dumb when I asked a thousand questions, and they celebrated me like crazy when I would share a win.
What the team offers alone is worth the investment. Just do it…it’s a decision you will not regret!
My 2 favorite Clean Food Crush recipes are Firecracker Chicken and the 15-minute Taco Dinner Skillet. And the Black Bean Brownies. And all of the Sheet Pan Meals. And roasted broccoli….ok ok, that’s enough haha!
