Why are you doing Ignite?

  • I'm interested to hear why people are committing to the change. For me - it's all for my kids. I want to be energetic and around for the long haul.

      I'm right there with you. I've been thinking a lot about this lately and wanting to get back on track with far fewer processed foods. Also, a friend recommended a book - Intuitive Eating by Evelyn Tribole. I've just started reading and believe you can gain information from all sorts of sources. Not sure but think the two will compliment each other because I do need to get back in tune with my body.

    I am allergic to soy. I have wondered if the gluten is getting me down for some time. My best friend went totally Paleo and she looks friggin' fabulous. Just had a baby and went back to the same weight in the hospital. One of THOSE :-) 17 months after my last baby and I am still struggling with about 10 pounds baby weight....and then the 20 pounds I shouldn't have had on before babies! So I am ready to not only loose weight but heal my body!

      I lost my baby weight in the hospital for my first kid (though I really could have used to lose more) and then an extra 5 in the first month of breastfeeding. With the second I left the hospital weighing more than when I went in and have had a TERRIBLE time taking all that weight off, and I weighed less when I got pregnant with her than I had since leaving high school. Every situation/every person is different, though I'm sure you hear that as often as I do. :) Good luck!

    It's for so many reasons. I'm getting married later this year and while admittedly it would be great to look great in my dress, I'm far more concerned with spending a long, healthy life with my awesome husband-to-be. He's quite active and I'd love to finally be able to keep up with him. I also wonder if this will help with my mood disorder (along with being monitored by a professional, of course) and stress. Since I travel so much for work am a bit worried about longevity, but I don't have to travel this month so now is the best time to start! Have struggled with my weight since I was 8...17 years is enough! We can do it :-)

I've been telling myself for years that when I retire I want to do... and it occurred to me the other day that I may have the time and even the money to do the things I want but if I continue like I am, I won't have the energy or the strength to do the things I want. More immediate motivation is I am going to be teaching an online course and I am dreading going in front of the camera!

    I have been curious about Paleo for a while. I'm doing this for me. I want to be healthier, have more energy with kids. I've been kicking around the same 5 pounds for about six months, and time to kick it to the next level. I secretly desire to inspire my hubby to join me. He is pre-diabetic: lost a good amount of weight over the last couple of months due to being super busy. I'm concerned he will regain it back, but he claims he won't. I'm home with the kids while he works and goes to school, as far as I know he doesn't workout. When we go out to eat I sometimes ask to see if they have the nutritional info on a dish, he will scoff as though saying "here we go again", making my request feel almost ridiculous. So, I haven't talked to him about doing ignite yet.

    My best to all in their efforts!

    I had knee surgery a few months ago and can't play the sports I used to for another 6 months. I put on some pounds and need something to jump start me. Playing sports enabled me to eat a lot of foods that I shouldn't and not playing, those foods have "caught up" to me so to speak. I also think I may have an allergy to either gluten or dairy and this is a great way to see which it is and how I feel without those ingredients in my diet.

I want to cleanse my system and get in the habit of avoiding my vice a little more... cheese is so goooood! but so bad. I'm hoping to learn good habits that will carry on once the "detox" is over.

    I'm starting Ignite for several reasons. I used to be very active when I was in my 20s. I don't think I really learned how to eat properly. My metabolism would just burn off whatever I put into my body. Now that I'm in my mid-thirties it's not so easy. I've steadily gained few pounds here and a few pounds there.
    I want to learn how to be more active and eat better.
    I'm also running a 5K with some friends in September. I want to be able to keep up with them when we go out. Finally I'm going on a cruise at the end of September and I'm bound and determined to have some rocking abs for my super cute bikinis.

    I felt that my diet was low in nutrition. I started getting sick with cold after cold after cold. I wanted to jump start my nutrition and feel healthy! I was sick of being on calorie-restrictive diets and feeling hungry all the time. I also wanted the total package which is already preconfigured workouts + simple nutrient-dense recipes. I was so glad I came across dailyburn on a workout forum. It was exactly what I needed to make some much desired changes. The weight loss that comes with following this program is the "icing on the cake"!

    CassLoves343  about 1 year ago by: CassLoves343

    Many life events have caused my turn to working out and making the change.
    1) As a former athlete- soccer, track and swimming- and now living in a small town with no adult leagues, my activity level has significantly dropped. I have become very busy working full time, helping my husband run his business on the side, and coaching a youth soccer team, I haven't had the time to hit the gym.
    2) I have gained enough weight that my clothing is now uncomfortably tight. Being from a family with parents that are over weight, and seeing the health risks associated, the tight clothes was my first sign that I was heading down a path I do not want to follow. I am currently at the heaviest weight in my life only a year into my marriage.
    3) My husband has discussed starting a family in the next year or so. Having worked in the medical field, and especially around pregnancies- I know the risks being over weight can cause. I decided that now is the time to start a healthy routine to keep me and my baby healthy!

When I came back, I started my final semester of my BSN, with work, clinicals, and homework it all became too hard. Now all my hardwork has gone down the drain and I feel terrible. So today, November 1, I will begin the 21 detox, no more excuses, no more eating for boredom. In 8 days, I will be 40, even more reason to get it right. Monday, I restart my training program for half marathon, no more tired lies to myself. I can do this and I will not fail again. Wish me luck!

I'm starting to look at the ignite and I think it would be a great idea for me. I'm hoping to start it over holiday break.

    I was always a healthy and very in shape person. In 2008 I had a major life change which left me feeling very hopeless, and that set in motion a slide into a deep depression. I began to eat for comfort which caused a consistent gain of weight every year. I would diet loose some weight then gain more back. I now have a bad stomach, migraines and the hay fever I had has turned into such horrible allergies that I am now on an inhaler for asthma. In November I was finally able to make a huge change for the good and that has set in motion a swing towards living a more positive life. Paying better attention to my eating habits, and fitness is the next logical step to improving my overall health and well-being.

    Corinne8M  3 months ago by: Corinne8M

    After the birth of my second son almost five years ago, I had A LOT of weight to lose. under the guidance of an amazing trainer and nutritionist, I began a "clean eating" regimen and boot-camp-style exercise. I lost almost 70 pounds. As my youngest son is about to turn 5, unfortunately I have gained 20 of those pounds back. A few pounds a year really add up! Enough is enough and I'm ready to get back on track.
    My relationship with food became unhealthy and I lost sight of the purpose of eating. It's not to fill my time because I'm bored, it's not to satisfy every craving and it's not to comfort me. Food's purpose is to energize and nourish my machine. If I put processed junk; dairy, gluten, soy, etc., into my body, I shouldn't be surprised when I look and feel like junk.
    The hardest part for me is the first week, but once the addiction to sugar is broken, it is amazing how easy it is to stick with it. I've done it before and I can do it again.

      Good luck! I've been doing dailyburn and ignite for only a couple of weeks, and I've noticed a lot of changes! I have more self-control and I prepare my food before I go out--- and that alone helped me lose two dress sizes! I'm so happy with my body I just want to keep going-- stick with it and you will too :)

    When I was 17, I was diagnosed with PCOS by my pediatrician. She knew very little about the syndrome and, after several tests, just prescribed me birth control pills and diabetic medication as preventative measures. At the time, I was at a healthy weight, but my hormone levels were all out of whack. My doctor never talked to me about a healthy diet and my parents didn't know much either. So here I am 10 years later, researching PCOS and found that Ignite is really similar to the recommended diet for a woman with PCOS. I want to get healthy so my husband and I can actually start having a family now that we've been married for 7 years.

    I know this is an old question, but since I'm just starting...

    I'm doing this for a few reasons. 1) I was very thin my entire childhood until I got married. My ex was as social as I was, so we would just stay home and my activity level plummeted. I need to relearn how to be healthy. 2) I have a kiddo that I can't do my favorite things with, and it kills me. 3) I live in a distant place and have chosen a career that necessitates frequent travel. Planes + obesity = misery 4) I need to be able to be proud of who I am. The only thing I'm not proud of is my size (i.e., how I feel in my clothes, challenges of being overweight in like.. theatre seats, planes, back issues, etc.)

    I have had it! OFFICIALLY! :D

    I have been dealing with stomach issues/thyroid issues for about 2.5 years. I have become completely gluten and dairy intolerant and have gone gluten and dairy free, but still have been having issues. Cutting out the soy as well has helped me feel the best I have in over two years. I am a college student/musical theatre major and am always on the run. This makes it really difficult to prepare quick meals that don't make me sick. The DailyBurn Fuel is a God send for me as it contains none of my intolerant foods and is quick and easy to take on the go. Thankyou DailyBurn!!!

    I'm 23 with joint and back pain. I had a baby last year and I used that as an excuse for my weight. Well, now I'm close to my full-term weight. I attribute my weight to my joint pain. This is truly the heaviest I've ever been. Plus I get to go on a shopping spree once I hit 20lbs above my goal weight. I want to at least lose 62lbs.

    I have gained 7 pounds a year for the last 7 years during the winter. Always meant to lose it in the spring, but never happened. Just reached the dreaded 200 and know I have to stop putting it off. Working and running 4 kids, I need to stop, get some help, and focus on myself.

    I'm doing ignite to not only be healthy by losing weight, but to regain strength in all of my muscles that have been neglected over the past couple of decades. I feel the stronger I am the healthier I'll be. Plus, especially for women my age- 62, it is a great way to increase bone health as well. I've always been kind of active, but had fallen away from that and I wanted something I could do in my home that works for me and addresses all the areas I mentioned. Thanks for this opportunity to comment.

    detisdale  about 1 month ago by: detisdale

    I have always heard getting fit is 80% diet and 20% working out. I am always active, love working out. I have no problem with the 20%. It is the 80% I have a problem with, which is why I never see the results I wanted. So hopefully with the help of ignite, I will see those results by swimsuit season :)

    I started Ignite because I've gained about 30 lbs in 3 years. My roommate is a real foodie, and she likes to cook all this really rich food, so despite working out a fair amount, I've been gradually increasing my pants size. I hope that controlling my diet will help me rid myself of some of the cravings for bread, cheese and chocolate that have been my downfall in the past, and help me look good in the process.

    I believe my gut has too much Candida, so this will allow me to cut my sugar cravings, focus on increasing my strength and mobility. I only have about 10-15lbs to lose, but I am doing this to support a couple co-workers that are doing this. It is always easier to do it with others to push and support each other than do it a lone.

    For my happiness. Nothing tastes as good as strong feels. And I feel absolutely fantastic when I'm healthy and strong. Stress doesn't seize control of me and things roll off my shoulders. It centers me. I also want to show a great example to my son about how important taking care of your body is. It's crucial to all aspects of life. If you don't have your health, you have nothing.

    One of the challenges of sticking with needed changes is participation. By having options on the net, on the cell, and in my kitchen, I feel I am increasing my exposure to this program. I see it as a life change and I really want to be successful.

    I am right at the sweet spot of being overweight vs. being obese :( If I don't do something to shake off the 35lbs I have gained in the last 5 years it will probably double in the next 5, and I want to be healthy, fit and strong for life. AAANNNDD I just happen to be getting married next year so I want to look good in that dress ;)

    I have suffered from constant headaches for the past several years. Eliminating caffeine from my diet reduced the pain, but it is still there, all the time. (Yes, I've consulted countless doctors, have had every test done, and everything is inconclusive.) I'm curious if other things in my diet are contributing factors. I'm hopeful that my headaches will go away on Ignite, but I don't think that they will - and worst-case scenario, I lose a few pounds and learn some great healthier recipes!

    As I get a bit older I know the time has to be now to be able to make a real change in my life. I've had very low will power, but I thought if I went all in with Daily Burn & Ignite (I even downloaded some hypnosis apps that are supposed to help with motivation/weight loss/willpower, lol) maybe I'd have some follow through this time. I took pictures and everything, so fingers are crossed.

    I just stopped nursing and the weight is starting to come back on slowly so I need to get back into healthy mode. I also think that anything that will help me get rid of the 6 "EVIL" foods, is a good thing. I am vegetarian so I'll need to focus on eating right so I get my vitamins.

    I hit 60 and my belly is bigger than my hips. Aging is not for the weak! Watched the documentary Vegeucated (sp) and that got me off animals entirely. Just can't support that industry. Been off sugar for years and it's true, sweets don't even sound good now. Don't use soy, it's a just a genetic hot mess. Gluten is my last hold out. hahaha and the exercise. Guess I'll substitute my 'sludgie' for breakfast until the new and improved shake is available. I want to be strong and capable as long as I can. Can't have the kids worrying about me.

      I want to start, but I just don't think I can do it. I look at all the stuff I can't have and it scares me to death that I won't stick with it. I really should try it because I have be dignose IBS and have such stomach issues, but I just don't know if I can do it.
