The clients in FitSouls have achieved amazing results, both on and off the scale!  Each of the women I serve comes from a unique background and each started their journey in different times and seasons of their lives.  And as a believer, I know that God brings each client into my program at exactly the right moment, for exactly the right reasons.  I am proud to serve a diverse group of women, and am certain that at least ONE of their stories will resonate with you!  

One year ago today I officially joined FitSouls! I had worked with Carmen previously via her challenges through the Dare to Be Healthy FB group. Last January I completed one of those challenges and after meeting with Carmen I decided to go “all in. That was one of the most transformative life decisions I have ever made. I finally made a commitment to myself- to my health and my wellbeing. Since then I have accomplished so much, not only weight loss but feeling stronger and healthier and happier! I have lost over 55lbs and 8 inches off my waist. I am officially in “one-derland” for the first time in over 20 years! In January of 2023 I was wearing a size 20 and now I am a size 14!! Trust me when I say I’ve had fun buying new clothes and fitting into old ones that I thought I would never wear again! My muscles are more toned and I can lift heavier weights.

I have better endurance and I don’t get as tired. I can actually see my collarbone again! The most important lesson I’ve learned over the past year is that I am strong and resilient. I can do hard things-physically and emotionally. Self-care isn’t selfish. It allows me to show up for my family, friends, and patients as the best version of myself. A huge thank you to each and every one of you! Your support means the world to me. I am thrilled to be on this journey with all of you! Lastly, Carmen, I hope you know the impact you are making in our lives. Your tough love, support, encouragement, motivation, and knowledge is priceless! Your passion for our wellbeing is apparent. Your love for Jesus shines through! God bless you! - Megan S

I’m on such a positive path and I can’t hardly believe how great I’m doing. I went from a blood sugar of 300 almost 3 weeks ago to now an average of 90. I’m not hungry, eating things that fuel my body and no junk, low carb, lots of veggies and last night- a delicious 4 oz filet. Thank you to Carmen for her patience, wisdom and most of all the belief in me and the goal of living a healthier life.

On December 29th, I had a coaching call with Coach Carmen and we decided on a couple small steps I could take to begin to rebuild my health.  Based on improvements in some underlying health issues, I knew that 2024 would be the year that I would be coachable and ready to learn from her wealth of expertise. What a difference in my entire well-being in the short amount of time since that call

In just three weeks...

  • I have lost 5.4 pounds

  • I have lost a total of 5 inches

  • My blood pressure was 145/99 on January 1st and 100/67 today

  • My sleep was averaging 4 hours 52 minutes/sleep with a score 65 and is now an average of 7 hours 22 minutes/score 69. I firmly believe it will continue to improve.

  • I have reintroduced many healthy habits that I had stopped doing when I was sick. I am giving myself grace to add them slowly or skip a day if I need to. I'm not trying to overwhelm myself so I'm not going for perfection, just progress.

  • I am cooking and cleaning and taking care of my environment. That's a big deal after two years of deep depression.

  • I am so damn nice to myself now. All the time. I give myself credit for what I'm doing and permission to be human for the things I'm not.

  • The physical change I'm most happy with is that my night sweats seem to be gone. For several years now, I would sweat so much at night that I would need to change clothes at least three times a night. That's now gone.  I'm certain that is helping improve my sleep quality/quantity.

All that improvement in just three weeks. I'm shake-my-own-head amazed at how much better I am getting. I wouldn't have been able to do that without Coach Carmen or the FitSouls tribe!! - Michelle M.
