    The true overall goal for me during the eight week transformation would be to learn more about nutrition and how to use that knowledge to maintain a healthy lifestyle during a busy schedule and still enjoy good foods. This way of eating could be a guideline for the whole family and we could learn healthy habits together.

    Also to learn about a program and stick with it. I feel I sometimes start a program and then walk away from it before giving it a chance and to see change. I need to learn to enjoy the journey more and accept and embrace the ebb and flow that comes with these journeys. I am ready to find a program and stick with it to the end and reap the rewards! It is time to grow and change!

    Plus it won’t hurt to see how my body changes and reacts to the nutrition and workouts

      This entry would be for my wife! I’ve undergone my own transformation over the past year and recently she has taken an interest in your programs and has mentioned the True 8 a couple times the past two days! She’s a little intimidated to jump into a workout plan and the nutritional information and plan you provide could be what she needs to get in track. I would like nothing more than to give her the opportunity to jumpstart her own fitness goals with the plan you and your team can provide!

    My goal is to lose the body fat I have and turn it into lean toned muscle because I have never been fit and in shape my whole life and I want to show my wife and my son that I can get to that point in my life

    So, as you know, I have participated in one of your True8 programs already but I am ready to take my fitness to another level. I want to become leaner and gain more muscle mass. I don’t necessarily want to lose more weight but if I do it’s a win win for me! 😊 My dream goal would to become fit enough for a competition but not actually participate in one. I just want to feel more comfortable in my body. I want to learn how to eat better too. By this I mean learn how to really calculate out my meals to achieve my goals. I don’t feel like I have this pegged right now and I want to learn. I really want to complete at least one unassisted pull up by the end of the year. I don’t know why this bothers me so much, I just cannot seem to get there. My upper body needs strengthening I know and I am all about working on it! Summer is fast approaching and I want to be ready!😊 Thank you for the opportunity to join the True8 program again!

    The one goal I would like to achieve in the next 8 weeks is to lose more fat. I would like to release around 75 lbs. My goal is to be at 200 lbs, I am currently at 279 lbs, and also within these 8 weeks gain the knowledge and understanding to be successful ongoing with health and fitness. Also to be a motivation to others that are struggling. The body parts I am going to work on are: core, chest, shoulders, arms and legs. The exercise I would like to eventually get good at and conquer is squats, I had a knee injury about 20 years ago and being close to 500 lbs did not help in my recovery. Despite of having a busy schedule, I would like to be able to incorporate an exercise regime to be effective and be able to continue doing what I am currently doing with my busy schedule. Areas in my health I would like to improve is knowing what is best to eat and what supplements to take to continue being successful in all aspects of health and fitness. I am excited to see what I can accomplish in the next 8 weeks, if I am chosen I am ready to prove how bad I want this and am willing to do whatever it takes to get there. My 16 week goal would be to apply in the first 8 weeks and apply it for continuous improvement and work on gaining muscle since I will be at my goal weight. Thx!

    I would love to have 8 weeks of the True8 program! I’ve wanted to do it for awhile, but I don’t have the money. My 8 week goal is to lose weight and get in shape. I want to lose by beer gut, and look better naked. Not for anyone else, but for myself. I also need to lower my cholesterol and I feel going through the program would help me achieve that by setting me up on a plan, and sticking to it. The biggest problem I’ve had with losing weight is the motivation. Having a team behind me to be accountable to would give me the motivation I need to kick start my life, lose the weight I need, and gain the confidence I’ve been lacking. Thanks for the opportunity!

    If I could achieve one goal in the next 8 weeks, it would be to develop a consistent habit of eating right that I could stick to for life. To be more specific, I would meal prep once a week, I would eat 85 percent healthy food, and I would limit binges to no more than once per month.

    I’ve heard that the True 8 Challenge is the best online health & fitness program on the planet, and I am ready to take action to meet my goal. I know that with the right tools and accountability, we can make this happen.

    My goal is, and always will be, to be the best version of myself. This requires me to always be moving forward in a positive direction. A very important part to be the best version of myself is wellness, achieving equilibrium in my body. I know TRUE8 helps people do this through fitness and nutrition.
    My goal in the TRUE8 will be to build more healthy lean muscle. I know this will help me achieve a higher level of fitness to better do all that is required of me as a man, husband, and father.

    To be honest, I know I have some cans in the cooler. I would like to learn to more effectively melt the ice so I can see so 6 of an.

    I don’t think you have to Keto and all that. It just isn’t that difficult. But I do tend to stall. I’d like to.see my BF% drop a few points without sacrificing strength.

    I’d like to look good naked and add tools to the toolbox to keep it that way.

    Deciding what my 8 week goals is what is hard. I am a Highland Athlete, so strength is a big concern, especially since my season starts next week! I want to lean down, while losing minimal muscle and strength. Size for me is not an issue, add I am a big guy to begin with!

    I know that losing any type of weight will affect my strength, so following a plan that is effectively going to minimize strength loss and lose fat is my ultimate goal. I am trying to set a good example for my family and coworkers, as I have already lost some weight. Now I’m just fine tuning. The plus side is that my co-workers are following my example and Dionne have already started writhing to change their lifestyle!

    I don’t want to disappoint them, yet I want to continue mmt journey for me! I will go ahead and say that my second goal is to see others succeed! I have begun my journey and I am doing well! I believe someone OTHER than me deserves this chance to better themself!

I would love to lose about 20lbs and if I would happen too gain a little muscle and energy in the process that would be great. I hope you choose me but if you don’t I appreciate the opportunity to tell my story.

    The accountability is the key for me! To be in such a group that I report to, not just a coach or group of coaches but the true 8 family that I know is encouraging me also.
    My goal is weight loss, but also overall health so I want to be strong too. Mental health is a big factor in the workouts , because they are tough, if you can mentally do them then it helps with other things in your life.
    Honestly I can’t afford programs, I am single after 28 yrs of marriage and now care for my 91 yr old Mom as well. The program has been key to me feeling like I’m
    Not alone and have a support.
    Learning about over all health not just exercise has helped me know that I have to combine all elements to reach my goals.

    2017 was a rough year for me in terms of my relationships with food, exercise and most importantly my body, mainstream body building is a bitch. I really want to start the journey into intuitive eating and I know the best advised way to start is with tracking, however I have such bad memories of tracking. Even though I’ve rebuilt my relationship with food, exercise and my body I want to really tune in my eating and not be ‘afraid’ to play with macros or different strategies like fasting in the future, so the next 8 weeks I want to use nutrition science paired with tracking and intuitive practices to continue to build in my positive relationship with food and my body.

    I started my weight loss journey one year ago. In that year, I managed to lose over 75 pounds which has been one of my biggest accomplishments so far. The only bad thing was that I lost plenty of muscle during the process, and that’s because I never had someone telling me what I was doing was wrong. So, I want to be a part of this 8 week transformation in order to learn more about building muscle and lose belly fat, which I still have. I also want to learn about meal planning.

    My 8 weeks goal is to gain more muscle. I’ve always been slim but putting weight on I feel my body is not in proportion as I have gained around my middle but my arms and legs are still tiny. I would like to feel comfortable again by loosing that small amount of weight from my middle but gaining muscle everywhere else. My main goal overall is to feel better about myself. I want to feel comfortable again in anything I wear and feel fitter and healthier. I am more motivated by wanting to feel healthier and happier than what’s just in the mirror. At the moment I go to the gym but see minimal results which I think is due to not knowing exactly what I’m doing and having minimum knowledge on nutrition. As my job involves a lot of moving heavy equipment for me overall strength is important. My glutes, quads and back are my main muscles I hope to improve to help me feel better about myself.

    My goal is to lose body fat. I lift regularly and do cardio but still haven’t reached where I want to be. I am a personal trainer and sometimes feel that the way my body looks discouraged clients to work with me because I don’t have the typical “Instagram fit chick” look. I know that being a bit leaner would make my confidence soar and that is really why I am hoping to be picked for the 8 week challenge!

    I have 2 goals, continue to eat healthy and continue to lose weight to prevent recurring injuries. Every time I get on a routine of working out, I reach a point where I train too hard and exacerbate an old injury (mainly my right knee), or irritate a hernia. So I take a few days off (or sometimes a week), well in those few days, even though my daily caloric intake stays close to my goals (macros is another story), I seem to lose all my gains. So yes I need help, but more in alternate workouts to strengthen my knees. Nutritionally I’ve made it a habit to track everything. I want to do the True8 challenge again to help me stay accountable to myself.

    My Gödel is to gain at least 20lbs, more if possible. I haven been 160 lbs since i left Marine Corps active duty in 1991. I have crohns disease and diabetes that didnt occur until age 40, im 49 now. The diet for these 2 diseases counteract one another so I do best I can to modify them both into what I can handle, my A1c is 5.9 so im doing something OK, but not gaining any weight or a small amount if when I eat bear size meals of hamburger, streak, chicken,Burger King, ice cream, whole milk, ect. The protein shake I consume daily is made up of ice cream, peanut butter,2 eggs, oatmeal, whole milk, Oatmeal, and 2 scoups of muscle milk protein powder!!! Still, only 130-240# even taking in 3500 calories and 200+ grams of protein daily and amino acids on the side, it frustrating!I just got divorced so I only have them to work out with, but I do 3-4X a week to exercises I find online that looks like the would work best and walk for cardio 2-5mi every day. So if your plan can help me reach my goal I would be forever indebted. If you have the time and a plan, I have the disuse and Cisalpine!

The stress the anxiety even took its tole on not putting weight on this body.. Not having a big bone structure doesn’t help but, I invested in some Body Fortress and doing the best with what I have in this farm community..not a Golds Gym around here? Ive read on how to get your ex back is by making change to better myself…I figure Ild try to work out, I could use an extra 30 lbs and some mass!! And if come the day my ex see’s me, and we didn’t get back together? I can say that I made a change for myself and to her it be..how do you like me now???

    We have spent the last year fighting for our 11 year old daughter’s survival. She has a brain tumor and has experienced emergency surgery for hydrocephalus, brain surgery, chemo, another brain surgery (craniotomy) and more chemo. We were recently told she would need radiation and we asked for a second opinion, hoping to spare her from the long and short term effects of radiation. We received that opinion this week and are restarting chemo on Monday.
    Throughout this journey, I have been her primary caregiver and the one to take her to all of her appointments and chemo. I lost my job before she was out of the hospital the first time and haven’t had a paying job in almost a year. 2017 was a rollercoaster on so many levels (if I told you everything we experienced, you wouldn’t believe me!) My husband and I participated in a True 8 in July but it was hard to keep on the plan and activities while Gabby was in the PICU. I have had depression for as long as i can remember and have gained 20+ pounds from the stress and depression of every this past year.
    I have finally realized that it’s not enough to just take care of Gabby and the rest of the family – I have to take care of myself too. After being on the verge of a nervous breakdown, I went to the doctor and got back on an anti-depressant so I can at least function. I am calling the dentist this week for a check up (put it off due to cost and what they might find). I have made the conscious decision to not by double stuf Oreos (my favorite and my nemesis) and even when we have had them, I didn’t eat any. We have made the choice not to buy any soda to have at home and am trying to limit when we are out as well. We are limiting snacks and have cut back on processed foods in an effort for everyone to eat healthier. Last fall, my husband, our 14 year old, 5 year old and myself completed a 5k (the 5 year old and I walked it mostly and it took us an hour but we finished it!. I have been to the gym a few times but felt like I lacked direction and focus. If I could have one goal for those 8 weeks it would be to loose weight (I’d like to wear jeans again and not feel like I could be mistaken for pregnant) and create the foundation for a more fit lifestyle, for myself and my family.

    I stumbled across Josiah about 4 months ago, and started to follow what we he was posting. I was on my own journey to lose weight and get back in shape, and he had been down the same path. After some time I joined the inner circle, and enjoyed it so much that I got in on my first True 8.

    Until that point, I had been doing this on my own. I had had some good success, but it had really just STOPPED. I was doing the stuff, but wasnt adding muscle, wasnt losing weight. I was stuck. If it hadnt been for a frustrated post, which Josiah and team jumped all over, I might have given up. The level of support is unmatched for a program like this.

    Winning a spot in another True8 is gravy. Ill be doing another one, and probably another one after that, so saving a few bucks would be a nice thing, but its not the real reason Im posting.

    Goals: Ive had some. Vague ones. Ive lost 65 lbs. Ive hit 300 on the bench press. Ive also went through serious back and neck problems, pulled muscles and post 40 year old joints. Being involved in the True 8 family has given me more clarity. Goals. If they arent written down, they are bs. If they arent clear, they are impossible.

    I have one goal: To become as healthy as possible and be here for my wife and kids, and hopefully someday, grandkids. To get there, I need to do the little things.

    By Sept I will have lost another 30 lbs. Sounds easy right? Well, Ive decided that the slow path i the best one. I love working out, and I am more concerned in building real movement, flexibility, power, etc than I am with dropping 2 lbs a week or whatever. It will happen if I stay consistent anyway, so its a win win.

    Ive always been a strong guy, but Ive always had problems doing pull ups. I am working on it. By Sept 1 I will be able to do 10 good ones. Its hard when Ive carried the weight I have, but I can do 2 now. I couldnt do one when I started. As I lose weight and work, it will become easier.

    Pushups: I am up to 65 in one shot. Ill be 100 by the end of April.

    There we go. Specific tasks to reach a bigger goal. The big thing Ive learned is this never ends. Ive got to keep doing and going and changing or Ive failed. Having the support of the True transformation fam and the challenge of the True 8 is something I NEED.

    Thanks again Josiah, Chris, Meg, Dr Chavez. You guys are doing something huge, and we are all fortunate to be along for the ride!

    If I won I’d put my wife on a witness protection program and beg her to do it.

    Over the years, I always wanted to be smaller than I have been . I have carried so much extra weight that I know that it is not a healthy life style. These past eight months have been incredible but lifestyle has changed over the last month that it makes a lot of my routines difficult to complete. I want to have the chance to be able to complete my workouts in a shorter time period, besides my stretches in the dorm room and my jogs three times a week.

    I did one of the TRUE8 Challenges, but I wasn’t very active or involved in the program. I signed up for the program, and just days after it started, we had a failed adoption. I was heartbroken. This child had lived with us for 23 months, and she was going to go back to her father who had just gotten out of prison. It devastated me. It shook up my entire family. I fell into depression and have started to make my climb out. Today, I went to the doctor for a sinus infection, and I was started on Blood Pressure meds. I don’t want this. I want to lose weight and not be on meds. I have a family history of adult onset diabetes, and I’m close. I don’t want to go that route. I’m ready to step up and make changes. My workplace is moving this week and will be located across the street from a gym – I’m going to get a membership and go over my lunch to stop the excuses of not having time. I need guidance on how to change my diet. I need guidance on what to do in the gym. I’m 6’5” and 387 pounds. I’m ready to redirect my life.

    I have a 20mo old daughter who is the joy of my life. I have a son due in May. I barely have energy to keep up with my daughter. I want to lose weight, and build strength so I can be the father my children deserve.

    My goal during this challenge would be to break this plateau. I started my transformation at 495 lbs. I have worked my way down to 250lbs. I want to break this plateau and lose this belly.

    I started my weight loss for my first daughter born 3.5 years ago because I will walk her down the isle. 14 days ago my second daughter was born and now I am more determined than ever to stay healthy and lose the rest of this weight.

    With 8 weeks of coaching and support I should not only break this plateau, but gain muscle and gain the knowledge of how to sustain this lifestyle.

    As I get older, my mobility seems to be something I need to focus more attention on. My hips and knees specifically. I had gastric bypass surgery along time ago and I’ve lost over 230 pounds, but I still have more to lose and eventually want to have excess skin removal. I also have a hernia in my abdomen that I need to be fixed as well. I’d like to continue to get healthier, lose more weight, feel better about myself, so that my transformation can continue. I’ve come a long way regarding pounds, but I still feel like my transformation is incomplete.

    My 8week goal is to continue to push myself to be better. Hockey season is almost over and some stress relief will come with that. I love being apart of groups where I can be inspired and inspire others. I also love learning from Josiah. So much knowledge in the world of health and fitness.

    Just making this request for my wife not for me! I’ve spent the better part of this year reaching my own fitness goals under your coaching. Now I’d love for my wife to have that same feeling of success by getting a solid start in her quest to improve her fitness! She has been intimidated to jum into a fitness routine but I think the True 8 would be s great jumping off point!
