The Strongest Girl I Know by Nora Wennerstrom

I found Cathe a little over a year ago but my journey began 10 years ago. Before and after the birth of my first son 10 years ago, I was 50 pounds overweight. The day my son was born, my world changed. I decided I would be a mother healthy enough to keep up with a little boy. Through walking and modified eating, I lost 50 punds by the time my son turned 1. I was able to maintain the weight loss through and bounce back after 2 additional pregnancies and the birth of my next 2 sons weight-wise, but my body just wasn’t the same.

Eight months after my youngest was born, my husband began a weight training rotation since he was out of shape. I decided to try exercising as a supplement to my eating and completed an exercise program that didn’t involve weights as I still wasn’t convinced lifting weights was for women. I decided to try a weight rotation program geared toward women, just to change things up. I found I loved weights! Trying to decide what I would do next after learning weight training was my love, I researched many programs on different forums and Cathe’s name was everywhere, so I knew I had to learn more. I found Cathe’s forum and read everything I could get my hands on regarding STS and I knew I had to try it.

I invested in the program as well as the equipment I needed because I knew with working full time and raising 3 boys, getting to the gym was not an option for me, but I still wanted the results. Day one of my new STS rotation was life-changing. I was hooked and I knew I this was what I had been looking for.

I have been using STS for a year now and it’s still the best program I have found. People always ask what I do to stay fit with everything else I have going on, and I always recommend STS.

    Thanks Teresa and Catherine! STS really is great, Catherine, you will have AMAZING results! Good luck and I look forward to reading your STS results story on here as well : )

    This got cut off of my submission, but I titled my story “The Strongest Girl I know” because my oldest son said to me one day after one of my workouts “Mom, you’re the strongest girl I know” , which sort of brought it full circle because he is who inspired me to change my lifestyle to begin with.

    Thanks, Maritza, and congratulations on your pregnancy! I started STS when my youngest was 10 months old and the picture was taken seven months after I started the program. I probably would’ve started sooner had I found it before then. I still consider STS my best fitness purchase. Good luck!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
