DripFit Transformation - Julie Supple
How DripFit helped with my transformation:
My transformation story:I was a naturally slim kid. I didn't play sports. I didn't exercise, but I walked a lot, and my Mom always fed us well. And I ate a lot. Like a lot. But I stayed lean.
After college, when I started working an office job, I sat all day and continued to eat a lot. Slowly I gained weight. The first time I lost weight was on the Atkins Diet. I looked great ... in clothes. Then I tried Body for Life. Where had the gym been all these years? I loved it (side note, I had signed up for memberships several times, but never went).
Then I decided to compete, at age 40. Cue 4 years of massive rebounds, disordered eating patterns, either a free for all, or super strict mentality for years. I finally got stable with the help of some good coaches.
I certified as a personal trainer, and did nothing with it (I said it was for personal knowledge, but I really felt like I couldn't train if I was not consistent with myself. I felt like an imposter). I had “retired” from competing, and while I said “never say never”, I had no intention of ever competing again. I took nutrition coaching courses ... and left them on the shelf. I hit perimenopause, covid hit, my doc wanted to check my heart function, and I decided to just “accept” myself. Excuses I had told myself. And with being home and living in leggings, it was easy to “not see”. I quit weighing myself as I didn't like the number. When I gained weight - I became very skilled at angles and shoulders up only shots.
I talked to a couple of Girlfriends and then Brenley – I wanted to compete again! I knew that I was mentally in a place where I wouldn’t sacrifice my health – physical or mental. I chose May 2022, and about 14 months from my start with DrenchFit – I had lost over 40 pounds. Since then, I competed in October 2022 and again in May 2023. I have placed in all 4 shows. My weight has been steady, I am able to have “off seasons” to build and not gain more than 5-10 pounds. I feel like me, only better. I live a balanced life. There is no good or bad food – just food my body doesn’t tolerate. There is no guilt around food or exercise. My goal is to inspire people that you CAN be fit and healthy – at any age. Age is just a number.
It's not about weight loss. It's about life gain!
I have been "in" pretty much every course we've offered and I am so honoured to be able to coach others now. I took courses and recertified as a Master Trainer, Health Coach. I'm still learning new insights about myself, in fact, a couple of weeks ago, I had another "aha" and once again, something has shifted! No matter how much knowledge you have, no matter how many courses you've done, no matter if you coach others, we all need a coach at times! It is NOT a sign of weakness to ask for help. Even coaches need coaches! I will forever be blessed to call Bren my coach and my friend. I am grateful to work with her in Drench, LivBTR, and DripFit.
