Location: Ponte Vecchio Community, Boynton Beach, FL
Improvement: 22+ lbs Weight Loss
Time: 3 Months
Program: 2009 Total Transformation Challenge
My biggest challenge was to keep going when the scale didn’t budge or went up.
Shortly before the start of the transformation challenge, one of my 6 year old grandsons asked me if I had a baby in my tummy.
At that point I was determined to do something about it. For most of my life I was very fortunate as I was able to eat what I wanted to eat and as much as I wanted to eat and my weight would fluctuate very little. Over the last few years it finally caught up with me and although my weight didn’t fluctuate too much, it concentrated in my stomach. I used to have a can of regular soda daily with lunch and dinner. I have cut that out completely. At home I am eating smaller portions. When we would go out for dinner, I used to eat everything on my plate. Now I generally bring home half of my dinner. I have cut out snacks.
In the past when I had an option of driving or walking somewhere, I usually drove. Now, when time permits, I walk.
I suggest that other people cut out soda, limit your food intake, eat healthier, and exercise regularly.
I have worked hard to lose weight but I feel very good for doing it, and will keep up a healthy life-style. I am looking forward to the second phase, so that I can learn more to ways to keep healthy and strengthen my body.
