Being a former professional athlete, Tina had never struggled with weight until she gave birth to her son eight months ago. Six months after her son was born and frustrated by her lack of progress, Tina took an honest look at herself and how she felt and decided that it was time to find some help. She said she knew that she was not really overweight but, “I just knew what MY healthy weight was and what makes me happy, and I believed that I could make it to that weight again.” But to do it, Tina needed some help. She did what any savvy 20-something would do, she turned to the internet for some answers.
Tina says she was definitely looking to lose the weight “the healthy way,” and didn’t want a fad diet or one with excess sodium or added preservatives. She also knew that taste was key if she was going to stay on any program and be successful with it. After searching “best tasting” diets, she hit upon eDiets Fresh Prepared Meal Delivery and decided to take a chance, she signed up for the 5-Day plan. Tina admits she was somewhat skeptical, “Well it SAYS it tastes fresh, but we’ll see!”
Well now we’ve seen! Tina was surprised at just how good the food tasted. She says, “The first thing I had was the Coconut Curry Chicken Wrap and I thought, ‘Oh my god! I could eat this every day for lunch!’ I was really happy that I had joined then!” The big test though, was the weight loss. Could she really eat this great and STILL lose the weight?!
YES! Tina started losing right away – 2.5 lbs in just the first week! That’s when she knew this was a plan she could fully enjoy, stick with, and would help her reach her goals! Tina continued to enjoy her meals, and in just her first four weeks she dropped 10lbs and completely transformed her body! Excited by her find, Tina sent a Tweet across the airwaves that ended in a conversation with the eDiets Marketing Team. A few bites, one little Tweet, and Tina became our new official spokesperson!
It was clear on first speaking with Tina that she really believed in what we have to offer – from the meal delivery program, to the advice from nutrition and fitness experts, to the online community support, Tina was sold. When we filmed our latest commercial, Tina had the chance to meet the other amazing testimonials we had brought out to shine in the spotlight and she really got a chance to see first hand how eDiets has literally changed people’s lives.
Today Tina has continued to work on her weight loss and is just two pounds from her goal! She’s feeling more confident with most of the baby weight gone, and was super excited to be able to wear the bikini she wore on her honeymoon when she recently took a vacation with her husband (did we mention he’s Rhys Lloyd, of the Minnesota Vikings?!).
