Hello, my name is Yoko Boucher and I LOST 20 LBS!! I have maintained the weight for two years under the expert instruction of Karla Adams.
In the beginning, I was 134 lbs, I knew I was overweight, my face was round and I had almost no waist line. I was wearing size 10–12 loose top slacks with loose elastic band. I didn’t like my style or my fashion. My journey has begun. That was 2 years ago.
My friends were kind and ignored my size by not criticizing me for being overweight. However, my true friend Mr. Takahashi in Sendai mentioned to me that I was starting to look like a pig. In addition, Mr. Fujii (previous mayor of Sendai) politely said to me, “Yoko-San, you are getting round.” That means I am getting fat. My husband, Tom, agreed with the comment.
I tried exercise, diet, a European spa with salt, Expensive French Lait products to tighten up muscles and seaweed wrapping for six months. Nothing worked.
I needed professional help from a consultant and trainer. After three weeks of exercising and dieting under Karla’s direction, I lost 14 lbs. I could wear stylish dresses and my dress size was a 6. Wow!!! Not only did I look fashionable, my cholesterol level came down from 220 to 190. All my friends noticed my new image and I felt wonderful. My husband said I looked great.
From that point on, I knew I wanted to obtain my original goal of 115 lbs. At a height of 5’2’’ and small frame, 115 lbs is an appropriate weight. So under Karla’s instruction twice a week, I have been maintaining my weight at 115 lbs with diet and exercise for over a year.
During this time I have had with Karla, it has been fun and tough but she has always been there to listen to me and to look over me as an instructor and a friend. She is always professional, disciplined, pleasant, talented, and cute. Now she is one of my best friends.
If you want to keep your body in good shape, get Karla as your private trainer and follow her directions faithfully. It really works and you will be happy.
