Online Boot Camp Success: Down 42 pounds & 60 inches!
I can't thank you and all the coaches enough for providing me with the tools to change my life for the better!
I have always wanted to live a "healthier" life but never knew where or how to start. My negative voice gave me every reason and excuse to avoid taking ownership of my health. As a result I never took the time or put forth the effort to better myself.
I could not be more pleased with the results since starting Online Boot Camp. Since joining Boot Camp ninemonths ago I have lost 42 lbs. and 60 inches.
I have never felt stronger, healthier, and had more energy in the past 15 years.
Boot camper forever,
Online Boot Camp Success: Down 30 pounds!
Back in the dark days of January of 2013, when I signed up for Online Boot Camp 12, this is a post that I could never have expected posting:
As of this morning's weigh in, I have lost 30 pounds. I'm sitting here with my coffee, shaking my head. I am so delighted. I am finding joy in the journey. I have a good and positive wind in my sails.
Anyone who is on the fence about committing to No Excuses Boot Camp, just show up. Meet yourself where you are. Don't invite your negative voice - she's never done you any favors.
Take the support that is so abundant in Boot Camp and let it propel you forward. I am grateful for it everyday!
Jonathan you are completely right - this flat out works!
Boot Camp Success:
I have lost almost 10 pounds since July 1st when I started boot camp 15 as well as over 12 inches off my body overall! I am loving the results especially my changes in attitude towards food and more importantly my negative voice has been getting quieter. If I get off track I don't beat myself up any more (at least not for as long); I just keep showing up and making one healthy decision at a time. I can't wait for boot camp 16 to see how I do when I get my wellness score up even higher because it still isn't at 80 but I have gone from a 12 to 60 (last time I took it). I love all of the coaches in boot camp as they all bring something different to the table and I need all of it! Thank you for all you guys do; it is very evident that you all truly care about helping people!Jennifer
Online Boot Camp Success: I’m down from a tight size 16 to a loose 12!
I feel like the classic tortoise and the hare story! I’ve surrendered quick fixes and just keep showing up to my Boot Camp assignments and encouragements.
So, so grateful to the program! I will keep on this journey because I can fit it in to my lifestyle!
I am down from a tight size 16 to a loose 12 and halfway to my goal weight!
Thank you, thank you, thank you all!
Boot Camp Success: Down 9 pounds and 21 inches!
I have gained way more than I have lost during Boot Camp.Janette
I am now an athlete, the most positive person in the room, working out 6 days a week and now have higher energy and more of a positive can-do attitude. I have missed one day of workout during 2 boot camps. An official member of the "Who am I?" club.
Thank you Jonathan, Stephanie, Erik and Mahmoud. My wellness journey will continue my entire life, so happy with the results.
Now is My Time!
Testimonial: I’ve lost 21 pounds and 18 inches and kept it off!
Wow, where do I begin? I just got done crying from happiness.
You see, the picture on the left was in Cancun from December and I was in a total place of happiness because of Online Boot Camp and Jonathan, Erik and Stephanie, that I honestly didn’t notice my weight.
I learned through Boot Camp to change the inside and your thoughts, and the rest will fall into place and follow.
Boy did it ever! I just got done crying because I guess I didn’t really realize my transformation until I put these pictures side by side.
I had learned to love myself for who I was and to accept myself just the way I was, and to be perfectly imperfect. I was living that.
Since Boot Camp 11 started in November of 2012, I have lost 21 pounds and 18 inches and kept it off!
I can’t believe it.
I have not been “perfect” at all, but just “lived in happiness” and kept my head in the game and kept getting back up if I fell down.
My entire being has changed, inside and out and I owe it all to Jonathan, Erik and Stephanie choosing the paths they have in their lives. I am so grateful they have crossed mine!
Thank you coaches from the bottom of my heart for what you have done for me and my life.
Testimonial: Down 50 Pounds & Finding Joy Again
The above 2 pictures on the left are from Sept 2012 and the one on the right is from last month (March of 2014).
I have officially dropped over 50 pounds and 8% body fat! But so much more importantly is the enjoyment I have in life now!
My goals for the weekend rarely include sleeping in, and doing nothing all day because I’m tired. I wake up naturally when the sun wakes me and desire to go for a run or at least be out exploring our beautiful valley.
When I started Online Boot Camp in November 2011 – I did not easily rise out of bed….ever! I didn’t think there would ever be a time when I wasn’t tired. I ached all the time, back, knees, hips, etc.
Really one of my biggest desires was to sleep and sleep and sleep. No energy or desire to go for a walk.
It didn’t take long to become hooked on my daily morning workouts with Jonathan, Erik and Stephanie. That created a desire to change my food and drink habits and it was a huge cycle upward.
After the initial changes, I became involved with line dancing, hiking and RUNNING! I’ve always hated running, but had so much fun with it that I ran my first 5k in the summer of 2013. I completed the Atlas Race (5 miles and 20-25 obstacles, climbing walls, etc) in September and ran my first 10k in October.
The goals accomplished have provided me with excitement I didn’t know I would ever have again!I have learned what feels good with nutrition, and with fitness. I surround myself with positive input. And my dreams have turned to trying to make a difference in others’ lives.
Our coaches are always available for questions, encouragement, or just a listening ear. Amazing people with the biggest hearts! Their hopes and dreams of helping us every day, teach us to do the same for others. Join us and make your dreams come true!
Testimonial: Down 50 pounds since joining Online Boot Camp!
After many years of continued weight gain through life and the loss of my wonderful husband, I gained a desire to lose weight in November of 2012 and found Online Boot Camp through the FlyLady.
Why not give it a try? Not only have I lost 50 pounds and 38 inches, but I have gained a new approach on life. It's no longer just about weight loss, it's about being joyful again and finding my true happiness.
I don't remember feeling this excited about life in many years!
I look forward to what I can accomplish today and finding what makes me happy. I've refocused my mind on the things I'm grateful for and constantly removing the negativity.
The coaches are amazing and I know that they DEEPLY and TRULY CARE about every one of us! Reach out to them and reach out to your team, we are all great support for each other!

Online Boot Camp Success: Down 35 pounds & 32 inches!
I have spent the last 15 months working the boot camp program and embracing a new lifestyle.
Here is a list of some amazing changes I’ve experienced through the process:
1) I started boot camp in April 2012 and I cannot imagine life without it. I can count on my hands the number of scheduled workouts I have missed. I LOVE to exercise and the way it makes me feel.Kari
2) I have lost 35 pounds and 32 inches since 4/2012 and I no longer have fear of the weight coming back on. My body is strong and I have energy to keep up with my kids. (Total weight loss since 2010 = 80 pounds)
3) I have gone from "borderline" on my cholesterol levels to "optimal".
4) I have learned to love and respect my body. I have let go of counting calories, points and restricting diets.
5) I have utilized phone coaching, boot camp radio shows and thoughtful written assignments to help me fight through challenges, plateaus and stay optimistic. I’ve been documenting evidence and working my transformation from the inside.
6) I have embraced the role of chief wellness officer for my family and my husband and kids are truly following my lead.
7) I have always dreamed of being a runner and I have successfully completed 4 5Ks, a 10K and participated in a RAGNAR Relay so far. I have several more events scheduled this year. I am an athlete.
8) I have control over my negative voice and have learned how to turn it around. I have filled my life with positive people, experiences, content, music, dancing and so much more!
9) I have an amazing power team consisting of coaches, teammates and family members that genuinely support me and want to help me succeed.
10) I continue to receive the greatest compliments about my confidence and happiness.
I owe so much to the boot camp program. I am grateful for the amazing No Excuses way of life
I cannot thank you enough.
