Read What Real Testimonials Have To Say About MARINA
I was just thinking about you today and how much of an impact you've had on my life. You've had such a positive influence on not only me but on several of my friends that you happened to have worked with on various projects.
I think you're an awesome role model and just wanted to say thank you for all the opportunities you've given me over this past year or so."
"Dear Miss Marina,
I had my commercial shoot today, and can I tell you, I haven't felt this good about myself at a shoot in MONTHS, and I have you to thank for it. I had been feeling like a fat slob at auditions, and on set, and so ridiculously nasty and out of shape. Today, I felt confident, and attractive, and would I have felt this before getting Marina-ized again? NO!
I want to THANK YOU for everything you've done for me, and I am seriously the freakin' luckiest girl in the world to have met you. You have CHANGED MY LIFE! I'm so happy to have you IN my life, and I've learned more from this program than I have from ANYTHING ELSE. You are seriously a true goddess, and you are my biggest inspiration! I watch you work it out in class, and you make me push myself harder, so I could be better than even in my wildest imagination. You're a miracle worker, and you have changed so many lives. I feel like I've won the lottery being one of the people who have been touched by you.
I just wanted to let you know how I felt, and how incredibly grateful I am. Just like out of the lyrics from that song in The Karate Kid, "You're the BEST...AROUND!"
You know about my history and my struggle with weight my entire life, and my addiction to food. Yes, I work hard and I'm very proud of what I've done, but YOU inspire me every single day, because you are LIVING PROOF that it can be done!!! And you also have taught me BALANCE. Btw...I had some of my "sauce" meal --- the BEST "cheat" meal ever! Totally worth every fatty calorie, but right after it, I went back to eating clean again! THANK YOU for that advice!
Thanks for your faith in me, Marina! I know that I can have whatever it is that my heart desires, and the sky's the limit! LOVE YA!!!
I know this weekend will be very busy with filming and finishing up the Infomercial project.
Just wanted to let you know I am 171.0 which is a total of 12 pounds for the month!
I am thrilled with that and every time I step on the scale it just pumps me up to stick with it and lose more weight.
I hope you don't mind if I continue to check in with you, it helps to have another person helping me stay on track and I don't want to tell too many people how much I weigh.
Thanks again for helping me get started down this road."
"Marina... can I just say I love you! :-)
lol I know I am not in class as much as the others,
but I can't express enough how motivating you are. I feel like you stay connected to all of us and you definitely 'keep it real'.
That is what I love most. You know how it is to be where we are and know the struggle.
On a performing level, I feel so connected to you as well b/c we both have the same just go for it and say/sing whatever is on your mind type of attitude.
(so New York haha)! I'm hoping to be able to make some of the morning walks now with my new schedule
(is there anywhere to park down there b/c I will be leaving there and having to drive back uptown to get to work).
The group that we have is so AWESOME and having you with us every step of the way makes us all that much better...so I just wanted to say a quick thanks!
(and love that you send us your music...I just put it right on my phone and go! I am trying to find a better way to save it though so I can keep them together and go for longer walk/runs with them)
This is SO wonderful! Thank you, Marina, for generously sharing this with us. :-)
I feel so blessed/fortunate/lucky to have met you, and I look forward to the rest of our journey together.
You are a true inspiration. Not just because of weight loss, but for the family you have, the children you've raised,
the career you've made for yourself, and the many lives you touch and make better just by being in them.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!"
"Hello marvelous Marina!
Thank you for all you do to keep us motivated, connected and focused!
You are a true inspiration and no matter how hard I am struggling to get through a class, your bright and loving face keeps me going going going!
I am so grateful you keep mentioning FEELINGS because they keep coming up for me BIG TIME.
I had so much insecurity about my body and my ability to simply get through the workouts at first, and those feelings were tough enough to work through,
but now each week with each new layer of fat that melts off and the stronger my core gets the feelings get deeper and even sometimes darker.
A lot of my demons are coming up - especially fear and regret and grief - but I am getting through them with support outside of class.
IN class I am getting support talking to the other women who have there own issues coming up as well and in being able to support one another.
Thank you for creating such a welcoming and supportive enviornment!
I only (ONLY!?) lost twelve pounds this first month - far short of the 20 - and don't know it they'll keep me around after Sunday, but I hope so.
But even if they don't I have learned so much and am so grateful to be part of this group going through this process with you.
I can't imagine a more perfect guide!
You are fabulous!"
You are out of control amazing. I am currently sitting in my doctor's office and just checked my voicemail.
I'm doing these blood tests where every half hour, I have to get back and lay down and do them again.
I hate needles, but it was one of my New Years resolution to finally get through this and conquer my fear, so I'm going for it.
Gotta love thyroid testing!
FYI, they also tested for Celiacs disease this time because apparently if you have the gene, that affects your thyroid in different ways...not sure if you've ever done that.
Thank you for your absolutely wonderful phone call that made me feel loved and motivated. You have been the key to my success.
I've been trying to get out of this rut where I don't feel good about myself for a while and you were the miracle that came into my life, as was this whole Gaiam amazing project.
I just weighed myself at the doctor's office--remember how for the filming we were weighed and I measured 153.5, well now, I weighed myself and I'm at 143.5! So, 10lbs in 3 weeks.
I wonder why the other scales have said I only lost 5lbs. The physician's scale is clearly more accurate! It makes me feel much better.
I don't know that I'll get down to a size 2 like Donnell, but hopefully, I'll be able to feel healthy and get stronger upper body.
I'm doing a Parkour Revolution class on Saturday that is supposed to help with that, so I'll let you know how it goes.
Seriously, so much love and warm hugs to you and the family. It means a lot to me that you so genuinely care about all of us and took time, to even call me and motivate me.
You seriously are superwoman.
