Success Stories

It started back in January 2013 when I decided I was going to start Gabby's G-Fit. My husband and dad were so proud of me for deciding to make this change not only for me but for my family as well. 

My dad who was 84 at this time was still in shape and working out all the time and my husband is a big work out buff as well and so for me to join them in this life change was very exciting for me and them. I was excited because I was finally making my dad proud, he has always pushed me to workout and be healthy. But in all honesty, I was never really interested until I had two kids and lets face it- your body just is not as sexy as it used to be after that. 

I am going to be honest though. I think that what made me the most excited about doing this was seeing my dad's face light up every time he saw me because he could see the happiness in my eyes and the pride in my new self esteem. I was losing a ton of weight and inches and I had not felt as good as I did in a long time. 

I went from a size 8-9 to a size 2-3. I was wearing dresses and shorts and even bikinis again. This made my husband and dad really proud of me and they were constantly bragging to everyone about the changes I made to become healthy. I had done it, I had finally found something I had in common with my dad and we were finally becoming close. I was getting the relationship I always wanted to have. 

In September of 2013 I was told my physician that I needed to take a break from Gabby's G-fit due to health issues and what I thought was going to be a short break turned into a year and a half. 

When my health was finally better and I was ready to start back, I lost my dad. It was a very long process and he spent over 2 weeks in the hospital before he finally went to rest and I was there every minute of his last weeks, so naturally I constantly ate fast food, one because of depression, and second because it was pretty much the only option I had. I was not going to leave my dad for any longer than needed I was finally his little girl again and I was losing him. 

I was devastated and depressed I was lost and I didn't know what to do. I was 24 years old and I was seeing my dad for the last time. He would not get to see my children grow, or see me graduate college in May like he wanted. He could not wait to see me in my cap and gown and now he wouldn't get to. 

With every milestone I hit the more depressed I became. I moved into my childhood home because my mom couldn't handle living there anymore and I thought it would be what my dad would want. To raise my family there, like he did me, instead of some strangers. But while I thought this would make me happier, it honestly made me worse. 

I am stuck in this deep dark depression that I need to break out of, I eat all the time and I just feel lazy. So I am coming back to the one thing that I know can get me out of this funk and get me back in shape, Gabby's G-Fit. 

I absolutely love the support that this group gives to people and I really feel like I am part of another family outside of my own. I need this, not only for me but for my family. My kids need me to be happy and healthy again and my husband needs me to be me again. I want to make my dad proud of me, because I know that he is up there and he is not wanting me to feel the way I have been. It has been almost a year and I cannot stay in this funk it is time to get out there and get healthy and happy again!
