At Results with Lucy we are so proud of all our #RWLFitties and as they say, great opportunities come to those who work hard, not wait! So when I got a phone call about an exciting feature for Reveal magazine, there was one incredible person who I know would not only be perfect for the feature but also really deserved some limelight on her incredible story and her amazing determination.
If you already follow the amazing Florentina on social media, you will know she is one of the most inspiring and determined people. Currently working long hours as a career, looking after her daughter and also pushing her own business as an events co-ordinator, she completes her Results with Lucy workouts at 11pm and does her daily meal prep straight after – she really is a woman that never stops!!
Since February 2016, Florentina has lost nearly 6 stone with RWL through healthy eating and exercise and dropped from a size 22 to a size 10 and now it was time to show off her results with a naked photoshoot for Reveal magazine!
We met in London, just off Oxford Street at the Hearst magazines head office and photo studio to start the amazing day. Florentina was whisked straight into hair and makeup and made to look uber glamourous with her hair in soft curls and her makeup dramatic and elegant for a modern, pin-up girl look. (HELLO HOTTIE!!)
Then it was time for LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION… Off the clothes came and Florentina came to life in front of the camera – I think she missed her calling as a model, she was a total natural!! Watching the pictures pop up on the screen, I felt so proud of be part of her journey – the transformation from feeling so self-conscious all the time to being so body confident that she could stand in-front of a room full of strangers completely naked was amazing to watch.
Overall, the day was fantastic and the pictures were absolutely gorgeous. Florentina has since told me she is getting one image blown up huge and hung in the entrance to her house so everyone can admire it!! I don’t blame her; the sassiness of the pictures is definitely something that needs to be admired by EVERYONE.
Congratulations to Florentina for her amazing mind and body transformation and I am so proud of your feature in Reveal. Well done and keep pushing, it just goes to show good things really do come to those who truly deserve it.
