I was bummed about this too! I followed her after someone on one of these boards recommended her as a real, true, fitspo IGer who stuck to her WW guns. I think there was even a pic shared where there was something of a disagreement between her and … Was it PM? Gracie? One of the other shillers where she spoke poorly about the sell outs. And now today this? I unfollowed right away. Haven't followed her long enough to be invested enough to hang in there with her.

She is my favorite and always will be! She lost a lot of weight with Weight Watchers and has stayed very genuine throughout (she is also a cat lover). The one thing she seems to struggle with is working out and hopefully Beachbody helps her with that. Weight Watchers is a great program but it unfortunately does not provide a workout plan to go along with their eating plan. It was probably time for her to move on to something else. She will always be a SOMI for me.

Two things–I'm so happy to know wtf ilbascy means now (maybe I should have known? idk).  I was also wondering if she'd show up here on GOMI because of the BB stuff.  I was pretty disappointed to see that too, she seemed like such a great motivator on her own.

 

Does Beachbody (the company, not the coaches) ever reach out to people with big followings to try to recruit?  I can see how she'd be tempting since she had a big following already.

I recently started following her to, simply based on instagram's suggestions for you. 

 

I like her. However, like others have stated I am also giving her major side eye. Come on beach body is nothing other than a scam! Being apart of weight watchers she should know that! Beach body has good work outs, sure. With that being said they build their empire based on supplements, and super expensive shakes that don't do anything. Being a weight watchers member myself I can say that I know the only way to lose weight and be healthy is eating healthy, having treats in moderation, and moving. Shake-O absolutely does not give you more energy, eating healthy, working out, and getting a good nights rest does – and it's free not 130 per month. If you're going to go the shake-o route why not just go to GNC get protein powder at 50% less of the cost and make your own shake? My brain cannot compute why people are fooled by this ALL the time. 

 

I think she would be more successful if maybe she got a personal training certification through NASM or another certified company and built her OWN empire. Not shilling beach body scams. Such a disappointment.

Have never like this girl. It's the screen name- I lost big and so can you? Ugh. Focus on yourself honey. I fail to understand why people jump so quick into wanting to help and inspire others. Oh wait, money. So many desperate people out there will think that just because she did it, they should be able to too? Too bad there is no money in maintaining a happy healthy weight. Somehow I don't think BB is going to help her maintenance struggles either. Hard to shift your mindset towards living rest of life at a happy weight and cultivating the tools required when you are shilling shakes for weight loss.

Whew. I'm so glad I stopped following her a few days ago. She had posted something (my memory is bad so I can't remember what) and I just got a bad feeling. So, to the unfollow button I went. I don't understand why these people work so hard to lose weight and then get lazy with their lifestyles. BB may be a thing now, but what are they going to do when they all become f**king coaches and have no one to sell this shit to?

I love her and her boyfriend so I'm disappointed. I'm going to keep following both of them though, and hope they don't get annoying with it.
Also, I didn't know what ilbascy meant either. lol

You aren't the only one. I never understood the name. I kind of always thought her name was some form of Stacy. Lol.

I used to follow her, but for a while she posted a lot of before and afters. Don't get me wrong, she's done an incredible job. Even I hadn't seen the before, I wouldn't know she used to be fat. My biggest problem were her comments on those photos. How she was so unhappy as a fat person. I get it was a bit misleading. Losing the weight doesn't just make you happy.

Absolutely!  Whey protein is by FAR the more cost effective option, especially if you buy in bulk.  You can add whatever to it: fruit, yogurt, milk, etc. and it will still end up being a better option in terms of cost, and very likely nutrition as well.

Shame about ilbascy going the BeachBody route.

I'll WK for her because I don't think she pretends that losing all the weight suddenly made her happy. I think she's pretty real about the fact that she still struggles with both body image and maintenance, especially after she gained back some weight from her lowest. Still bothers me she's going the BB route though.

I agree that she is real about the struggle of maintenance.  These HLBs that have lost the weight have an entire maintenance "market" that they could tap.  It's kind of one of those things that no one talks about ~ what happens after you lose the weight?  Then what?

Lash out at anyone who disagrees with you post showed up. Basically blaming others for her out of control food addiction. "You're crappy words get to me and led me to emotional eating- two margaritas later & 1.4 lbs up". (Also, sorry but it takes a lot more than 2 margs to gain a pound and a half.)

She goes on to say how much she does for us by running dietbets and giveaways. Helloooo, she makes money on every dietbet she "runs" and giveaways are free for her, and I'm sure she gets free stuff from the sponsors. 

The thing that bugs me the most from these IG and YouTubers is that they think they are above anyone disagreeing with them. I didn't even see any negativity on her shilling posts an this thread is mostly people defending her. She is a def GOMI for me.

I went back to her big BB announcement post to see what people were saying and didn't see anything.  In fact, most of the posts were asking for more information! 

Was she talking about her GOMI thread?  chin
