What was your biggest challenge / obstacle (s)
My biggest challenge was to find and make time to exercise. with my 10 month old son at home, I didn't want to stay after work to exercise. after a 12 hour work day, I just wanted to go home and spend time with my little boy (and my husband) :)
What motivated you to stay on the course?
Weighing in every week was easy. I already did that for weight watchers. it was making sure I got my miles and did 2 Speedline every week, which I didn't do every week. but Annmarie chin kept me motivated. she did do awesome, I wanted to cheer her on as well.
Did your diet change? if so, how?
I started weight watchers prior to the start of the challenge. so my diet didn't change too much. I just kept going.
What advice could you give to others that want the same results?
I would say, stick too it. no matter how frustrated you get. the weight will come off if you stick to it. the weight didn't get put on in 12 weeks, it isn't all going to come off in 12 weeks.
How is this experience going to affect you going forward?
This experience has shown me that I can do it!!!! I am jogging now (which I never did), I did over 100 squats (I would have never done if I wasn't on the challenge). I want to continue to lose weight and get fit.
