Challenge One Complete! (for all of us that had/still have a long way to go.)

  • Just finished my first challenge on wednesday! Got my before and after pics posted to my profile now. I know that my results are not as breathtaking as some of the amazing afters posted on this site (You guys are all so beautiful!) but I thought that my results are worth sharing. I lost 32 lbs in the last 12 weeks and I  have gained so much strength both mentally and physically. I've realized I am not trapped looking a way that I don't want to. I am fully capable of changing myself! It has been a great experience!

    I hope I can inspire someone who's in the same boat as me starting with 50+ lbs to lose. If you're here, you're on the right track! I am not the kind of person that loses weight easily, AT ALL. I have always exercised regularly and still found myself weighing in at almost 230lbs! This plan changed all that. I know I can get to my goal body through this program. And maintain it! I will definitely do another challenge starting August 16, 2010 and I cannot wait to see what changes that will bring!

     

    Thanks for all your support guys! This message board has been amazingly helpful!

  • Congrats to you on finishing your first challenge & setting up a date to start your next round!    I see lots of changes...You look like you've lost even more than you really did!  Really shows in your face & waist.  You have a beautiful hourglass shape!  I can't wait to see what C2 will bring you!  Yes, you are capable of ANYTHING!  Thank you for sharing your progress and results even if you aren't where you wanted to end up at--just yet.  You look beautiful!

  • Great Job!!!

    I like this part of your post:

    "I have gained so much strength both mentally and physically. I've realized I am not trapped looking a way that I don't want to. I am fully capable of changing myself! It has been a great experience!"

    The physical changes are worth celebrating, but the powerful, life changing transformations are in our minds.

    You look great! Be proud.
