My Weight Loss Story:
I had been a chubby kid all of my life. Throughout my K-12, and I never felt comfortable with my body and weight. I was always self-conscious. I used to not have any energy, I was always tired, depressed and physically exhausted. Can you relate? The light at the end of the tunnel: I had seen plenty of the Insanity Infomercials late at night and knew that if people in worst shape than me could it, I should not have any excuses. So I decided to purchase insanity. I was scared. I had never workout in my life. I was never able to stay in a daily routine. My parents did not know how to honestly help me either. I also did not have the support that I needed from others. Day 1 - I was not able to finish the warm up! It took me almost 2 weeks to just complete the warm up. I just kept pushing play and keeping faith. Slowly over time I started being able to keep up with more. Until the 7th week when I was able to finish a full workout. People started to noticed and began commenting that I looked healthier and happier. The key for me was finding my DRIVE. Find that one reason, deep in your heart that knows that you can make it as long as you stay committed. The workouts are so much fun, ShaunT is funny and so motivating.

Today I feel ALIVE. I have so much energy. I am far more productive at work. I feel happy about my life and where I am going. I have learned to eat better, and therefore my body does not feel bad anymore. I no longer feel self-conscious about my weight. I no longer fear any workouts! As a matter of fact I am always looking for the next challenge. My workout discipline is stronger that it has ever been. My bad cravings have almost completely diapered thanks to shakeology. I love to wake up every morning to motivate you help you achieve your goals! In the picture to your right you will see 3 pictures of when I was at about 220+ lbs. I put the plus, because honestly I was too ashamed to weight myself at the start of my process. I did not weight myself until the second week. Then you can see the skinny me. I was at about 160 on the picture where I am sticking my tongue out. These are examples of my before and after. The pictures here where taken about 10 weeks apart. I am currently down to 138 lbs and you can see a more current picture on My Transition Story below. Other programs I have completed include: Insanity about 4 times! I was so addicted to that feel good burn. Later I found about Insanity: The Asylum, Focus T25. Currently I am working on P90X3 and also PiYo. On top of that I am doing the 30-Day Challenge with my co-workers. This is why not having time is not an excuse. Specially with these short 30 minute workouts.

My Transition Story:
Childhood – My childhood was happy, I would have to say I was a normal happy kid. I had supportive parents, family and friends. We were very close. That being said from an early age I knew that there was something else about me. I could not articulate what it was until much later in life. I always found excuses to play with my sisters barbies. From an early age I was able to very quickly compartmentalize and filter any feminine behavior. I grew up in Chile, which has a very strong male chauvinistic culture. I honestly did not know what the words gay or transgender meant, but I knew they were bad. Once puberty started to happen, I began to cry often at nights, everything just felt wrong. It was a crazy amount of dysphoria. I can not even count the numerous times I feel asleep crying, praying to god, that I could wake up the next day as a girl. I am not sure why it took me so long to connect the dots. Ignorance - To say that I was ignorant would be an understatement. I did not even know the proper terminology or what Transgender or Transsexual actually meant. As side note, I really dislike the word Transsexual, as I feel that it has so many negative connotation. Growing up, and being scared of being bullied in school I did my best to not be a “fag”. Writing this article has really made me realize how deep of a meaning so many of these words have and how uncomfortable I am to using them. I feel that for this story, it helps to paint a picture of my level of ignorance at that point in life. I had no idea that there was a difference in the definitions for gender and sex. As well as gender identity and sexual orientation. What triggered me to take action – I was at work, it was very slow day and one of my co-workers showed me a picture of this girl that had transitioned. The post was made at a very popular internet website, which showed the timeline progress of her transition. This blew my mind, in so many levels. This was something I was already considering, but I did not know about Hormone Replacement Therapy. I did not not know what transitioning was, I did not know that you could get real results. I did no know that you could achieve amazing transformation without having to have any surgeries. At this point in my life I thought that a “Transsexual” was just a person who did not like themselves and changed their sex. I know what you are thinking, I was so ignorant, trust me that I know better now. It was at this very moment that everything clicked in place and I knew I had to transition. Today, thinking back, if I would have seen a Transgender role model in TV or in the media, I probably would had started earlier. This is the reason I am very open about my process, because I want other people to be educated. To not wait so late in the game to transition due to ignorance. At this point I knew I had to get started ASAP. I went on a research binge, that made me stay up many nights reading everything I could find online. I was still very scare, vulnerable and did not want to tell anyone due to shame, guilt and fear. I came out to my sister, to read that story click here. Finding my drive for weight loss – My drive was clear and simple. I wanted to “pass”. For those of you that are not familiar with the term. To “pass” is a term used in the Transgender community that describes ones ability to go out in public without being misgendered by others. Today, the concept of passing is not nearly as important to me. But early in my transition, it was the drive that motivated me to keep losing weight and staying consistent with my hormones and prescriptions. Today, thanks to my lifestyle I am so happy to wake up every morning. I am working hard everyday to reach my goals. I am helping as many people as possible to reach their goals. I want to be the support and motivation that I did not have. If you want to get started with your weight loss or transition please Contact me and I will do everything in my power to help you. Have an awesome rest of you day! Be safe and stay fit!
