Goals can change your life!


Check out this amazing story shared by a community member in one of our FB groups. Thank you Jessica for sharing and congrats on your BQ!

“Goals. They’re wild and can change your entire life. I just wanted to be better. I focused on my nutrition and just… moving. I went from step goals to actually signing up for a 5k. I was terrified.

My husband joined me and we started running a 5k every month together. I lost over 100 lbs. People joked about me doing marathons and I figured I’d never be able to run that long. COVID hit as I was training for my first half and I was determined not to let it take down what I had built.

This lovely group and MTA gave me the extra boost I needed to keep pushing my goals. Not only did a marathon become an attainable goal but I also stood a chance to qualify for Boston.

I missed it on my first attempt by 6 minutes so I signed up for my second attempt the moment I arrived back home. That training cycle was awful but I kept going. I didn’t think I was going to have it in me but I felt great.

At mile marker 20 I realized that I was not only going to qualify but I was going to do it with time to spare. I had 9:42 in the bank when I crossed the finish line. I’m still sitting here in amazement. Training for one little 5k has brought me all the way to the Boston Marathon.

This community has been so important to me. The support and inspiration is like nowhere I’ve ever seen on the internet. Thank you”. ❤️

A Runner’s Weight-Loss Journey

(This story is from my younger sister Autum Haley who started working with MetPro after she saw my success).

After having my fourth baby in 2018, I was frustrated about weight loss and stuck at twenty pounds heavier than I wanted to be.

Despite doing all the things I’d previously done to lose weight after my other pregnancies, nothing worked and two years passed. It was the definition of stubborn weight — weight that refuses to budge despite your best efforts and doing all the “right” things.

Thanks to my sister Angie (who all you MTA followers might know!) I started working with a MetPro nutrition coach in January, here are my results . . . Continue Reading →
