Transformation Weight Loss Success Story photographed by Julie Wilcoxson at

Annginette Gerdik – December 2011

First, let me say that I am honored to be the Spolight Camper of the Month! I am in camp with some wonderful ladies that work very hard and are dedicated to their goals as well, so to be picked as the first one, I’m truly grateful.

My story of success has been five years in the making. I began the fight against the bulge about a year after my youngest son was born. I gained a lot of weight with my second pregnancy and could not get rid of it as fast as my first one. I was very disappointed in my results and myself. I tried everything from fad dieting to the work out at home dvd’s. I was very dedicated to my dvd workouts and even noticed a slight change but it wasn’t until I joined Julie’s bootcamps that I really began to notice a difference.

I started with Julie and Transformations 4 Life about three of four years ago, when she first launched them. I came and went and wouldn’t stick to a program because of this or that and really just had all kinds of excuses to get out of them. Finally, I made the decision to quit wasting my hard earned dollars and stop the insanity of the crazy yo-yo diets and get going already! I rejoined Julie’s class and have seen INCREDIBLE results this time around! I went full speed ahead and followed her nutrition program to a “T” and lost weight and body fat like crazy!

I have finally achieved the results I’ve been looking for since my early 20’s. I have become lean and toned and can wear a size 2! Julie pushes me and doesn’t let me give up and quit. She is encouraging and is there for me whenever I need her! When I go on vacation, she sends me workouts and inspires me to stick with it! She has an incredible wealth of knowledge about fitness and nutrition and I love that. She has even inspired me to get certification and begin teaching camps as well.

So ladies, don’t give up! Once you make the decision to lose weight and get in shape, STICK TO IT!!!! It doesn’t take as long as you think to get the results and once they start showing up, you want more!!!! That is what keeps me going! Also, being in class with all of the wonderful people that attend is an inspiration in itself! Thank you again and I hope that I have inspired you.
