Today is a big celebration because this is Episode 100. And it's kind of funny how we play such meaning on numbers like even round numbers like 100. But we do, and it's a significant milestone, and I'm so excited that you're here for it.
In Biceps After Babies Radio Podcast, we put a lot of effort into it, and we put a lot of time into it to be able to benefit you guys. Like it's free content for you to be ready to get started with your fitness journey. And plenty of people have been able to just listen to, and be able to start and execute and reach some of their goals. You can glean what you need to from the podcast that makes me so incredibly happy. But it makes me so excited that somebody can come to the podcast and can glean things from the podcast and be able to start and continue and reach the transformation that they're wanting.
And so that's really what we wanted to share today was those stories of listeners who have the podcast that has made a difference in their life. So if you skipped those episodes or haven't listened to those episodes, you can go back and re-listen and maybe have some of the transformations or have the insight or the spark that the person looking had that really helped them in their journey. So without further ado, let's hear some of your stories listeners have biceps after babies.
Andrea shared some of her quick little background and how the podcast made a considerable focus and difference for her. Especially after having the surgery that she had, she can't believe how much she’s lost in that area and how much it's improved. She did not see results until she started tracking my macros. She felt like there's hope now, and once she made that big change, that's it, it's like instantly, and her metabolism feels like it has gone through the roof. It's been awesome for her. It has been a complete game-changer in her life. The podcasts have made such an impact on her life and they have been such a huge help for her. She just really enjoyed them and the wealth of knowledge is amazing and so easy to understand the way Amber breaks things down. Grab the: Episode 79 Shownotes & Episode 62 Shownotes
She talks about this concept of reversing and maintenance which is a recurring theme that I hear from you guys that it's something that you had never learned about, right we learn a lot about cutting, we learn a lot about fat loss, we learn a lot about going on diets for a lot of our life. And for a lot of women, that's where they stay. It's always about eating less. It's always about trying to lose weight. And what happens when you take that next step of reversing and focusing on unintentional maintenance.
Andrea did gain so much knowledge about what it was and by the time her cup was ending, and she felt confident enough to use Amber's free flow charts and things like that to plan out her reverse. And her reverse was a success. Now she’s continuing to up her calories every week and maintain her weight while continuing to get stronger making her feel so good. And now she’s able to help others and point them in this direction.
Next up is Laura, who had an amazing transformation. She openly shares that in the beginning, it was all about the numbers that aren't magic that she’s figuring out. That they always seem to come at a time and that was where she was on her journey. Like about reverse and about bumping up cardio. One of her biggest aha moments was how Amber talked about fat loss and not just weight loss. It's been a huge part of her macro journey that she has been.
Madelynn's story is that she took the free content, she cooked the free content and she applied it and because of that, she's able to create big things in her life.
Madelynn highlighted that if others can do it so she can also do it despite being diabetic. And she always bears in her mind that there are no perfect macros because the perfect macros are the ones that you can stick to. There’s also no good or bad food and getting a 100% commitment in whatever you do is a must. Biceps after Babies podcast has been a life-changing for her, that it’s not a diet, after all, it’s a lifestyle.
And she also shared a piece of advice for somebody that is wanting to track macros that she missed, is to make sure that you're taking your pictures and measurements from day one. It would be so much fun to put those pictures side by side, or compare measurements and to see how far I have come. Grab the: Episode 03 Shownotes
So Patty’s aha moment came from Episode 97: Results without perfection by Kasey. She thinks that she related to Kasey so much, because she’s also someone who's done so many other programs that just weren't sustainable, and she wasn't successful at so she started to actually believe that there's nothing that she’s going to be able to stick with. So as Patty is listening to Kasey talk about falling down and trying to get back up again and being a perfectionist and all that stuff, she relates to that, as well as being a working mom with kids.
In that podcast, Kasey talked about being a perfectionist and what's the point of doing something if you’re not going to be perfect, and that's exactly how Patty felt when it came to macros. Self-sabotage came from and that all or nothing mentality. So listening to Kasey’s story and saying that I can do this, and I don't even have to be perfect. Patty felt something amazing. And that kind of got her thinking like, that's exactly me. She thinks that if she just sticks to it a little bit better, and recognizes that she can do this and be perfect, it doesn't have to happen, then she will reach her goals and be so successful. And Kasey’s story really, really changed Patty’s perspective on being able to actually be successful with macro counting. Grab the: Episode 97 Shownotes
Sarah shared about how helpful it was for her, not just about how to reverse diet but just so much of how our metabolisms can adapt, and eating more food fuels our bodies, and creates the change that we really truly want to see in our bodies, along with training smart. She feels more confident. She feels more in control of her food choices as well as the freedom in her food choices.
She also finds the podcast episode on reverse dieting so informative and so helpful for her during her process. Biceps after Babies podcast episodes really have truly been so educational for her and helped shift her way of thinking as far as fitness and nutrition goes. She enjoys living this healthier lifestyle for herself and for her kids and her husband. For her, it's just such a different way of thinking and a different way of living. And that this really does work and you just have to trust the process. Grab the: Episode 09 Shownotes

And that was a game-changer for her. Now that she has set her goals the way she was taught how to set goals with, you know what the main outcome goal is, the process goals, to take, and all of those things that I have been just implementing into my life. It has been so crucial in changing her life, her mindset and just providing extra motivation for her to live the best healthy version of herself.
