Congratulations to our dear customer and 8 week #1uptransformationchallenge participant Bianca Gonzales on a fantastic transformation!
This is her story.
“I just want to start off by saying how super proud I am of myself for starting this new beginning in my life! I started following 1Up in 2017 but it wasn’t until 2018-2019 that I started taking my health seriously. I started following a lot of different videos from 1Up page and learning about different workouts and exercises and how to become successful mentally and physically. I lost a few pounds and it felt great I was noticing a difference but then I had a huge set back when I found out my mom got diagnosed with cancer. I was eating out every day and every time I took her to her chemo appointments, I would stress eat even though I wasn’t hungry. I was so stressed, tired and hurting emotionally and physically. I got really sick and ended up in the hospital for a few weeks and I got diagnosed with severe chronic asthma, I couldn’t control my cough and I kept losing my voice, I was so miserable and so unhealthy. I didn’t realize how bad I had given up on myself until my husband sat me down and showed me how much I was not only hurting him but I was hurting my kids because at the end of the day your kids look up to you and I couldn’t continue living my life that way. So this year I decided that it was my year to come back and to become my biggest competition by joining the 1Up new years challenge. I will admit that I wanted to give up because I told myself I wasn’t good enough and I kept seeing everybody’s pictures and I was hurting because I still looked the same. I was wrong! Although I didn’t look like everyone else, I knew that there was a difference in my health I was able to control my asthma, I wasn’t having asthma attacks and I wasn’t struggling to breathe. I felt better and this is just the beginning I’ve already enrolled in the next 1Up challenge and I can’t wait to see what else I can do! My biggest piece of advice is to honestly STOP comparing yourselves to everybody else because you will never succeed just focus on becoming a better version of you and put yourself first!”
