Coppell Trainer “Where Are They Now” Spotlight – October 2017 – Livia Francis

Success Story

Sep 22

Livia Liu Francis is an attorney and lives in Coppell, TX.  She started with Get You In Shape in October 2015.

Q: What was your life like before joining the Get You In Shape Program?
Prior to joining GYIS, I was frustrated by my weight gain and lack of energy.  No matter what I did, the weight would not come off.  Plus, I was a terrible eater.  Coffee in the morning, maybe a snack for lunch and then a large dinner.

Q: What results and benefits did you initially experience with the Get You In Shape Program?
I am a task and goal oriented person.  Give me a list and I will do it and that’s what I did in the beginning- I followed the darn instructions and it worked.  It was tough that first month.  I had to adjust my eating habits; not just what I ate but when I ate it.  I went to all my classes and drank a lot of water and the results were very encouraging.  I lost 7 pounds that first month.

Q: What results and benefits you accomplished since that first year? 
After four months with GYIS I lost 20 pounds and 20 plus inches.  I reached my “so that” goal of getting back into clothes I haven’t been able to get in.  Reaching this goal gave me the confidence that I can do this and if I needed a re-boot, I can achieve it.  I have been with GYIS almost two years now.  Not only have I maintained my weight loss but I am stronger and healthier.

Q: What do you feel have been some of the keys that have helped you throughout the journey?
I believe my continued workouts with GYIS and maintaining a healthy diet has kept me on track.  GYIS continues to encourage me to stay with it.  I still enjoy boot camp, the challenges and all the little things (nutrition classes, charity functions….) that GYIS provides to continue encouraging their participants.

Q: What would you say to anyone looking to join the Get You In Shape program?
If you are looking for a program that is encouraging, non-intimidating, and fun, then join GYIS.
