Can Kim Kardashian's Trainer Whip a Real Woman into Shape?
Find out if 30 days with the reality star's bootcamp trainer can transform one woman's body into a toned, fat-burning machine
Total weight lost in one month: 2.2 lbs
Bust: 34 3/4"
Waist: 27 1/2"
Arm: 10 3/4"
Thigh: 19 1/2"
Total inches lost all over my body in one month: 5 1/2"
So I didn't get Kim Kardashian's body -- there's a shocker! But I lost 2 pounds and a total of 5 1/4" from my body, with most inches lost on my bust and waist. And those skinny jeans I complained about? They don't leave those severe red marks anymore. I'm proud of the inches, but honestly, I'm a little disappointed. It seems like all the work I put in didn't quite equal the results I ended up with.
When Barry and I talked about how I did, he said I would have seen better results if I kept a food journal and stuck to a healthy eating plan. Looking back, I wish I kept track of my diet. Perhaps that gummy bear/French fry combo wouldn't have looked so good if I actually had to write it down.
But there's some good stuff. In terms of stamina and strength, I saw gains I didn't even dream I could make. In the beginning of the month, the fastest I could run on the treadmill was a 5.0; now I can sprint at 8.5. My starting hand weights were five pounds; now I can easily lift 12.
And the biggest change? Before Barry's, I looked at Kim K.'s body with envy and looked at my own with disgust. But during my last class, when I was dripping sweat and sprinting on the treadmill, I looked at myself in the mirror and actually saw a toned, athletic, hot body staring back at me. At the time, I chalked it up to the amazing lighting.
Now, I think I might have just seen myself ... as I really am.
