So if you are going to do The Body Coach SSS Plan you will undoubtedly need lots of support – either from a friend who is doing it or one of the many Facebook groups that have sprung up. Of course the plan itself offers you access to a Support Hero via email for any questions directly related to the plan but for something more personal then it is a good idea to look to one of these groups.
Angela Cox has become something of a mini-celebrity herself! Her transformation on the SSS Plan is amazing, inspiring and a testament to her dedication and hard work. She went from a size 18 ish in January 2016 to a size 10 now at the beginning of October. She has done the plan three times (she is currently on her third round). This isn’t something that Joe necessarily recommends but as Angela has followed her own exercise plan (for the second and third round) then it is more achievable – some of the exercise options during SSS shouldn’t be done more than once a year.
So a few months back Angela decided to set up her own Facebook group ‘A Big Girl’s Journey to Lean’ and it has gone from strength to strength, mainly due to Angela’s likable and bubbly personality and her inspirational posts and encouragement. Her transformation is genuine and phenomenal. She also has a fantastic ‘admin team’ behind her who regularly contribute supportive posts and encouragement. She runs ‘theme days’ and encourages positivity and kindness to everyone. Whereas another group I belonged to tended to be a bit negative and could sometimes descend into unkindness and this made me feel uncomfortable.
Every member feels they can post questions, however daft or repetitive, upload their progress photos and know they will not be judged; rather they will get encouraging comments and compliments.
Angela is almost superhuman though! As well as having a full time career, a husband and family to look after and running this group she has also set up a YouTube Channel and posts daily motivational vlogs and has started doing some of her own HIIT workouts with the support of her PT. I really don’t know where she finds the time! But lucky for us she does!
So if you want to start your own journey to lean, whether it is on The Body Coach Plan or another plan then do take a look at this group – it might just be the motivation you need.
Good luck everyone.
Love Michelle xx
