From Haggard-Mom-of-3 to Hottie-Mom-of-3

by Anna D

From “haggard-mom-of-3” to “hottie-mom-of-3,” Katie Hoschouer is our featured client for Transformation Tuesday!

Katie lost 16.2 lbs and 8% body fat and gained a whole lot of confidence.

Read her story below:

In July 2009, my husband and I found ourselves in $77,232.88 of consumer debt (everything but the mortgage). We were sick and tired of feeling like we were working hard for nothing, gaining no traction, and often, moving backwards every month. So, we decided to make a change. We decided to commit to each other, and our family, to get rid of the debt, once and for all. It took us 2 days shy of 28 months to pay off our debt (on a single income and adding two children to the mix during that time!). I won’t lie, it was hard work. It took consistency, commitment, intentionality, and perseverance. It took depending on each other to pull us through the hard times… the times we felt like we could no longer do it… couldn’t move forward… couldn’t work past the plateau.

I know what you’re thinking… “That’s great, Katie… but what does this have to do with Transform FX Fitness Bootcamp?”

Keep reading. I’m getting there. (Bonus points if you’ve made the connections already!)

After purchasing a voucher from Amazon Local, I started at TFX in July 2013. I weighed in at 162 lbs and 27% body fat, though at 5’8”, I carried my weight well. However, I was tired. I was cranky. I was unhappy in my own skin. My feet hurt. My clothes made me feel fat. I felt unattractive. I felt run-down. I felt every bit of the “haggard-mom-of-3” label I had affixed to myself.

I made a commitment to go to every single class available to me (15 of them), and I did it! I can’t tell you the surprise and pride I felt on that last day… but I was also sad. I actually cried the last day of my voucher! A gym. I cried when I was leaving a gym. I knew Ale and Anna were something special.

So, I signed up for a month-to-month membership. For the past 9 months, I have consistently gone to bootcamp, and what do you know? I’m consistently losing inches, pounds, and consistently gaining strength and confidence! At my last weigh-in, I was down to 145.8 lbs and 19% body fat!

I’ve gone from “haggard-mom-of-3” to “hottie-mom-of-3”. Having learned the skills from my financial fitness experience, I found the same  consistency, commitment, intentionality, and perseverance has led to success in my physical fitness as well!

I found it wasn’t just about me wanting it.

I could have wanted to get in shape.
I could have wanted to ditch the debt.

I couldn’t do it without the support, the accountability, the cheering section, the inspiration. Whether you’ve been at TFX for a day, a week, or a year, you get it. TFX is special because the people are special. They encourage you when you feel like you can’t keep moving forward. They pull us through the plateaus, and help us reach new heights. They make it safe. They make it home.

Changing your behaviors can change the entire course of your life. Where is your course taking you?

Katie Hoschouer is a very busy homeschooling mom-of-3, co-owner of GPS Financial Coaching and author of the lifestyle blog My Daily Crumbs. You can pick her out of the TFX crowd because she’s the one singing along with the awesome playlist Ale puts together. Especially the Bon Jovi ones.

If you’d like to find out how you too can get out debt, make your money behave, and get it working for you (instead of you working for money) just like Katie and Jason did, join us on Friday, April 25th at 6:30 pm at our Concord studio for our very first Financial Fitness Workshop lead by this amazing couple.
