Anita, my client I’ve known for oh about 10 years, has struggled: 2 knee replacements plus 2 broken patellas this year. Wow. And she’s been a size 18, am size 8, and everything in between over the years.
She came back to me out of the blue about 2 months ago in one full leg brace and honestly I initially scratched my head. We began plugging away at exercises I thought she could do pain-free but with quite a few limitations to say the least.
Today when I looked at her (and I see her 3x/week so it makes it harder to notice changes), she looked different. I paused and said exactly that to her. Then she burst out ‘I’ve lost 15 lbs!’, threw her arms around me, and we both had goosebumps because this is the beginning of a new chapter in her life. I can tell. She can tell. And it’s all her. I let her say it. That’s my reward.. seeing her bask in her happiness. Because when she wins, I win.
