New Ways of Staying Healthy

Elizabeth Pacheco BeforeI would like to write and express my sincere appreciation for “Freedom of Fitness” at Pacific Beach, California. After having two kids and going back to school for my Bachelor my weight totally changed. I hated the way I looked and felt. That’s when I decided to do something about.

Elizabeth Pacheco Fat PantsIt was June of 2007 that I started my journey to become healthy and fit. I was referred to Sandra Blackie to help me change my eating habits and exercise in her program. I found new ways of eating healthy & staying fit from the inside and out. She assisted me by customizing my nutrition and an exercise program. At 37 years old, I decided to try it. I didn’t expect the results to work but I achieved it! Sandra kept a close eye on my results, always made inquiries regarding how I was feeling and doing and made suggestions and improvements to my program once a month. At the end of the program I lost 68 lbs and 24.3 percent body fat! I dropped a few dress sizes from a 16 to a size 3. WOW! I was never a size 3 in high school. I look and feel fantastic!

Elizabeth Pacheco Figure CompetitionI was invited to see a Figure Competition at Anaheim, CA. Looking at my friend on stage inspired me. That’s when I decided to become a Figure competitor. Sandra was surprised that I wanted to do a Figure show. I met my goal exactly! I was so excited to get on stage. To top my journey to fitness I actually placed in my first Figure Competition I took 4th in the Masters 35+ category!!! Now that’s amazing!!!

After my show I still follow the program that Sandra created. I’ve learned how to eat properly, eating foods that I like, and how to order my meals at restaurant.

My body looks better now at my late 30s then in high school. This is just the beginning of my journey to fitness. I highly recommend Sandra Blackie “Feel the Freedom of Fitness” it is an amazing program, I could not have done it without her.
