How many months’ progress do your pictures represent? What were your stats for each picture?

12 months of progress between the photos. Before photos, I weighed 144 pounds with a body fat percentage of 38%. In the after photos, I weigh 116 pounds with a body fat percentage of 20.9%.

What has happened so far on the program?

While on the Thinner Leaner Stronger program I cut for 1 year. For the first 6 months, I managed to lose 20 pounds which is where I lost most of the weight. For the last 6 months, I wanted to continue to lose the fat so I decided to keep cutting. At this point, my macros changed and my calories went up a little since at this point I had more muscle mass.

The best part of the Thinner Leaner Stronger program is the results I saw in my upper body. I have never been able to see any progress on my arms and shoulders and with this program this was possible. I have more strength in my upper body than I have ever imagined.

At the beginning of this program, I was not able to do 1 push up and now I am able to do more than 10 in 30 seconds! Overall, I lost 28 pounds during the Thinner Leaner Stronger program and it has completely changed my life!

What workout split from the book did you use?

5-day split.

What, if anything, almost kept you from buying the book or starting the program?

I am actually so grateful for my boyfriend for buying me the book as a gift. I had no idea this program was out there and all the success it has. He knew I had struggled with losing weight and everything I had tried was not working for me and I was not seeing the results I wanted.

After reading the book, I knew it was time to stop listening to others and forget what I thought I knew and take this information and make the changes necessary in order to get the results I wanted. I love this program because it is so easy to follow and the workouts were perfect for a beginner lifter.

What do you like most about the program?

In the beginning, I was not sure how the Thinner Leaner Stronger program was going to work and what to expect, but I was actually surprised how easy it is to follow. The best part is being able to tailor it to your own goals and being able to incorporate the workouts with the schedule that fits best to your lifestyle.

I started seeing results within the first 3 months especially in my midsection. The best part is when I started noticing my clothes were feeling loose on me. Also, the clothes that did not fit before I was able to start fitting in them once again and when I looked in the mirror I was happy for once in seeing my results pay off.

How does this program compare with others you’ve tried?

I personally have never followed any other program like this, but the diet was the biggest comparison to any others and life-changing. I have tried starving myself, depriving myself of the food I like, cutting carbs completely, and cutting sugar completely and the results were short-term but never did I keep the weight down.

Learning about macros and how they work and why they are important to reach my goals have taught me that I was completely wrong in the past. Now I know I can get the results I want and eat the foods I like without restricting myself.
When it comes to the workouts they were easy to follow.

My workouts have always been all over the place and I never focused on my upper body. The Thinner Leaner Stronger program taught me that it is okay to stick to the same workouts and the concept of progressive overload and still be able to achieve amazing results.

How has what you’ve achieved with your body changed other areas of your life?

Confidence! I have never felt so confident in my life. I feel that if I was able to put in the work and consistency into my fitness journey I am able to tackle anything that comes my way. The best feeling is seeing how my body looks now and feeling amazing in my own skin.

I have never been a morning person and now this program has given me the energy to get up early, get my workout in, and being productive throughout the day. I use to dread working out but now it is something that I look forward to, I enjoy and it makes me happy.

Who would you recommend this program to and why?

Everyone! Anybody that is starting their fitness journey, needs some fitness guidance and needs a diet or workout plan I would recommend the Thinner Leaner Stronger program. This program not only has so much important information but I also like how it breaks down everything and the reason behind it and why it needs to be done or why it works the way it does.

When my co-workers, friends, and family started noticing the difference in me I have consistently praised this program and what it has done for me. This program has also been able to teach me information that now I can confidently share with those that have questions about fitness or starting their own fitness journey.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?

Keep going and don’t give up! I know it can get hard sometimes especially the diet part but once you start seeing those results it’s all worth it. I wish I had taken more photos of my progress but they do help when you feel like giving up or not seeing the results as fast as you want them by looking back at them and realizing how far you have come.

I always felt discouraged when I looked at the scale and didn’t like what I saw. The best part is even though the numbers didn’t show what I wanted the way my clothes fit and how I felt were more rewarding. Stay consistent and dedicated. You can achieve anything you set your mind to and don’t forget great things take time and it will be rewarding in the end.
