MI Transformation: Overcoming Doubt – Jillian Young’s Macros Inc Success


Meet Jillian, one of our five inspiring winners of last year’s 2023 MI Transformation Challenge. We caught up with her shortly after the results were announced to find out how she stumbled upon Macros Inc and what convinced her to jump into coaching.

Jillian spills the beans on her coach, and we hear about the bumps she faced on the road during her incredible transformation journey. Speaking of transformations, we delve into Jillian’s incredible results, explore the significant changes she’s experienced, and reflect on the profound impact they’ve had on her life and well-being.

Winning this challenge is not just a milestone for Jillian; it’s a game-changer. She openly admits she’s never been on the winning side when it comes to self-commitment, so this victory is nothing short of a big deal. So, buckle up; we’re about to dive deep into it all: the journey, the wins, and the incredible transformation that defines Jillian’s story.

So, tell us, Jillian, what does being one of the winners mean to you?

I’ve never won anything when it depends on me sticking to something, so this was huge. If this is run again in the future, I’m going for 1st place!

How did you first learn about Macros Inc?

I’m not even sure anymore. I had been in the Facebook group for a few years. A friend may have added me.

What motivated you to choose Macros Inc. over other options out there?

I don’t know if there were any other options out there when I signed up, but I’m also glad that I didn’t explore other alternatives. I don’t think any of the other options really pair you with someone you need, and I don’t feel like just a number. My coach has been amazing and probably the number one reason I’ve lost the weight that I have.

Were there any specific concerns or hesitations you had before joining? If yes, how were they addressed?

I did initially think, “Was this going to be another fee down the drain?” Sure, I could do it for a couple of weeks, but what would happen after that? Could I really do this and stick to it? Could I learn how to properly track macros? What about all the vacations I have planned?

Not only has it been the best investment I could have ever made for myself, but I’ve been with my coach for 15 months now and plan to sign up for an additional 12 months. I’ve learned how to go on vacations and track when needed, or let loose a little bit and have the desserts and drinks that don’t normally fit in, and upon returning, be able to get right back on track.

What did you first think when you signed up with Macros Inc.?

Oh, sh*t, what the hell did I just do?! Literally, I think that was my response when I got off that call with Monica. Once I met my coach and he told me how this works and we started working together, 16 days later I went on vacation to see family in Wisconsin for 10 days (beer, pizzas, and cheese). I came home .4 lbs heavier. That was an amazing feeling that I could still partake with the family for meals and stay on track.

You were paired with Coach Steven – how did he help you in your journey?

Just having him and knowing I had to answer to someone outside of myself and my family. My husband had doubts – he thought I was wasting money. I was really able to connect with my coach, and he has become a friend. I know I can go to him with whatever I’m facing, and he will help me see the positives. He simply is amazing at what he does!

Were there any specific aspects of the Macros Inc program that were your absolute game-changers?

All of it! Seriously, the Facebook Q&A, the coaching, the check-ins, and the community you guys have created are absolutely amazing, and I’m so thankful I found it.

Did you face any challenges during your time with Macros Inc? If so, how did you overcome them?

Oh, nothing personal with Macros Inc. But my little sister died earlier this year (drug-related), and I was the only person in the family to speak to her for the past 12 years. If I didn’t have my coach, I am 100% sure I would be back to over 200 lbs.

How has your experience been shaped by the Macros Inc. community and resources, including the client portal and community support?

I think all of the resources and the community you guys have put together, along with the coaches, have been the reason for my positive experience. I’ve done other programs in the past that do not offer the support that you guys do.

So, tell us, Jillian because we’d love to know, what results have you achieved on your transformation journey with Macros Inc.?

My resting heart rate went from the 70s down into the high 40s, and from what I know, my blood pressure has come down to normal limits. I’ve also lost a significant amount of weight, and my muscles are showing up.

How have these amazing results impacted your life and well-being?

I am down 4 dress sizes! I’m a happier person overall, enjoy working out and have tons more energy. I don’t mind being in pictures now, and I’m back to wearing bikinis at the beach.

You go, girl!

What are the most significant changes you’ve noticed since starting with Macros Inc?

I’ve lost around 50 lbs (the scale’s up these last few weeks), and last time I measured, well over 30 inches, I think closer to 43 inches, but I may be confusing that at the moment. I used to hate the gym, I literally despised it. Now I’m enjoying it and going 4 times a week by myself. We actually leave for a cruise this Saturday, and I’ve packed gym clothes to make sure I can work out while gone. The old me, even when I changed from nutrition only to complete coaching 12 months ago, would have laughed at anyone telling me that I would enjoy the gym and the progress and definition I would see. I’m a huge believer now!

How would you sum up your experience with Macros Inc. in a nutshell?

Well, seeing that I am signing up for another 12 months should say it all. I hope to lose this last bit of weight before winter ends and then go into maintenance for a while and get comfortable there, maybe possibly start a bulk later down the road. We will see.

If a friend asked, would you recommend Macros Inc. to them?

Oh yes, and I have. I think 90% of my real-life friends are in the public group. Trying to get a couple of them to sign up for coaching!

And to wrap things up, what would you like to tell your coach about the support he has provided you?

You have been absolutely amazing. I’m glad we were paired together. Your encouragement, hype and always looking at the positives when I’ve had a bad week. You have been my biggest cheerleader from day one. We may be worlds apart but you are literally always there when I need you. Especially this past year. Thank you, Coach Steven.
