I am a 42 year old home schooling Mom of eleven. I have given birth to my children over 22 years of marriage. My oldest is 20 and my youngest just turned 2. With every baby I have streched my tummy and added a few pounds. I weighed 100 on our wedding day and now weigh between 135-140.
My honey and I have been doing your first DVD every other day for two weeks. I am commited, but wonder if there is any hope for my well-worn body.
I have your Fit Mom’s For Life DVD ordered. It hasn’t come yet, but I am very excited to get started.
I am a busy mom of 7. I have a 13 year old daughter, twins that turn 12 tomorrow, triplets that will be 8 in January, and a 4 year old son. Three of these deliveries were by c-section and my OB doctor told me my muscles are shot. I will not accept that. I know I can rebuild and shape my body with some hard work and your guidance.
Immediately after the birth of our last child, I joined weight watchers. I lost 40 lbs and kept that off until I started running long distance. I have run several 5ks, 10ks and most recently a half marathon and during that training, saw about 10 lbs come back on.
About a year ago, I quit weight watchers and went to a whole food, organic diet, which our whole family follows. After feeling totally depleted from that half marathon, I discovered your burst training video. I have been doing burst training, along with some strength training for about a month and have lost 5 lbs and feel great!
My husband and I are both committed to health and fitness and modeling this behavior at home so that our children grow up being healthy and fit adults. I know that your core video would be a perfect fit in our home and that my husband and children would use it as well.
Please consider our family as recipients for your new DVD. This DVD will NOT sit on the shelf in our house. We will use it and it will benefit 9 people!
Thank you for your dedication to moms!
Dustin: I thought you were deserving because of having 7 kids and triplets (multiple babies stretches core muscles much worse than singles), as well as having a couple Csection. But most of all you promise it won’t sit on the shelves and will be used by 9 people. So I hold you accountable towards that! Would love to see a video with all you doing it together 🙂 I am also glad you had the experience of gain weight during the marathon training so that you know that isn’t the best form of training for weight loss!
There was just one more that I had to give out. This is the only person of the 4 who I have met before…
Dustin.. I am one of the three you must pick.
You already know my story. I haven’t worked out in YEARS and because of you and some of your clients I now get my butt to your MamaTone class twice a week. The biggest reason for doing this is to get in shape for my 4-year-old who has seizures multiple times a day and I need the energy and body strength to be able to carry him up and down stairs, in and out of bed, etc. He’s not getting smaller so I have to get a lot stronger.
In addition to that, I have what I like to call “a donut of fat” on my stomach that both my 4-year-old and 13-month-old like to pinch.. and let me tell you, it’s getting old and annoying. The “donut of fat” must go.
Your Core DVD workout will help with my mission.
Please be my enabler with this!
Dustin: I picked Charlotte, because this is very serious that she becomes very strong total body and especially core. As her 4 year old son becomes older more and more will be required of her, and she could rupture her back and not be able to take care of her son, so for that I think she deserves it! Charlotte, do the workouts 2-3 times a week in addition to MamaTone.
