This is her story
“I’ve struggled with my weight for many years, which led me to join this challenge.
What really encouraged me to see out my transformation to the end was my want to shed some weight before my college’s graduation ceremony. A few days prior to the challenge I just finished with classes and knew that this challenge ended around the same time as my graduation date, in itself I thought, “this could be a double win for me if I stick things out”.
The most helpful tool for me was discipline. Regardless of how I felt I made it a priority to show up for myself and weather the storm. For the most part I trained everyday: inclined walking & lifting were my go to.
During this challenge my biggest obstacle was my mental/self doubt. There were many days where I thought I wasn’t getting anywhere or even losing the weight, but I still continued on regardless. I’ve learned that one day or even a few days of bad eating won’t entirely ruin you, just keep going.
One thing that I wish I knew sooner was the power of foam rolling. If you’re sore and stretching just isn’t working for you, try foam rolling it really helps.
In addition to these things I took 1UPs Stim Free Fat Burner and 1UPs Daily Cleanse to aid in my weight-loss transformation. In addition to these things I also relied on the Transformation Challenge’s Facebook group to keep me motivated & determined. The best help I can give to the next person is to just start, big or small each attempt adds up.”
