Five years ago, I was the best shape of my life. I consistently made it to the gym every day, ate healthy and got plenty of sleep. I never understood how it could be hard for someone to do these things, because for me it came so naturally.
Fast forward five years and two babies later. About 6 months ago I was in the worst shape of my life with my weight being 170 pounds. After having my son, I returned to the gym with the same fire I previously had and started ordering meals from Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine. I started off with their Paleo menu but switched to their Custom plan and have been on that ever since.
After about five months, I lost 40 pounds and was almost back to my pre-pregnancy weight. But in April I traveled to Colorado and unfortunately completely cheated on my diet. In the time since then I’ve had ups and downs and it has become harder to find that motivation to stay on track. I haven’t made it to the gym as much as I should, and in addition to my Fresh ‘N Fit meals, I haven’t been watching my macros as strictly as I normally have. I’ve felt like I have been trapped in someone else’s body for the last month.
It is time for a change! It’s time to establish a new routine and stick to it. I’ve recently signed up at Lifetime fitness where they have babysitting with the goal of relieving some of the stress that came from bringing my son and having to watch him while I was at my CrossFit classes.
I also want want to incorporate new things into my fitness regimen like Yoga, Pilates and some of the other classes I have never tried. Fortunately, Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s meals have remained the constant throughout my trials and tribulations.

This week in our latest installment of our Weight Loss Journeys series, we check in with Farrah Galloway. Over the past couple of years, Farrah has struggled to lose weight and after she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, she fell into the routine of eating unhealthy food. She explains, “Because I didn’t feel good…I didn’t eat well.“
Enter Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s clean, portion controlled meals. After meeting with our Registered Dietitian, a course of action was formulated and our Low Carb menu was introduced into her diet.
During the first few weeks of eating our meals and regular workouts at her neighborhood CrossFit box, she lost 6 lbs!
She explains, “For the first time in awhile, the numbers on my scale are going down! My clothes are fitting better and my energy levels are amazing. I’m sleeping better and Fresh ‘N Fit’s Low Carb meals makes it so simple to keep my calories on track.”
The ease and convenience of Fresh ‘N Fit’s macro-based meals has made such a big difference in her life. As a mom of 3, her busy schedule means she’s always on the go but since her gym is also a Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine pickup location, when she’s done with her WOD, she just grabs her meals to take home and enjoy.

At Fresh ‘N Fit, nothing makes us happier than hearing your success stories, especially when our calorie and portion controlled meals are incorporated into your health and nutrition goals. We’ve seen the positive results time and time and they always amaze us! Today, we’d like to introduce you to Rachel, who is celebrating her one year anniversary of being on Fresh ‘N Fit.
She explains, “Struggling through the end of college, I had abandoned all healthy habits. I tried going to the LA Fitness with a personal trainer for a year, but that didn’t do much since my nutrition was inconsistent. Losing a good friend in a tragic car accident shocked me into realizing that life is fleeting. I realized that I needed to take a more dramatic action to honor her life by taking care of mine, even if that meant running obstacle course races.”
After accepting that I actually had an eating disorder and I knew that I needed outside help. My therapist recommended Fresh ‘N Fit meals with the encouragement that there is no one correct way to eat healthy.
“You don’t have to spend tons of money at expensive grocery stores only to later spend hours batch cooking and eating the same leftovers all week.”
Instead of stressing out over both shopping and cooking with healthier aspirations, I am able to rely almost entirely on Fresh ‘N Fit to reset my body and mind by eating clean.
“With the meal plan, I eat out less, focus on my fitness training more, and enjoy my life without the mental fatigue of cooking and preparing healthy meals.”
Within the first 4 months of Fresh ‘N Fit, I consistently lost about 10 pounds per month.
“I started Crossfit two months in, hoping for an engaging workout system that would continue to improve my life beyond nutrition. After the first 6 months of Fresh ‘N Fit, I have lost 60 pounds. During the second 6 months I’ve lost another 10 pounds and 8 inches from my waistline. I have bought 2 completely new wardrobes by this point, starting at a size 18 at 255 pounds and am now at a size 10/12 at 185. I compete in weightlifting, powerlifting, and Crossfit competitions for fun, and most importantly, I love waking up every day and living my life to the fullest! Each day I try to make the best choices for myself, living by the mantra to be my best self every day. I want to thank Fresh ‘N Fit, my Crossfit Vesuvio gym fam and coaches, my #strongLike lady squad, and the extended Crossfit community for supporting not just me but everyone on their daily journey to their best selves.”
Are you inspired yet? We definitely are so let Rachel’s journey be the motivation you need this summer to finally take the first steps towards a happy and healthier you!
