Congratulations to our 2021 New Year 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Female 4th place $3,000 cash prize winner Clarissa Lopez @1up_ambassador_clarissa_lopez
This is her story
“Hi everyone my name is Clarissa. I am 37 years old. I recently got married 6 months ago and have a 9 year old son. I used to be one of those super skinny girls that can eat whatever I wanted whenever I wanted and not gain a pound. I have always been a size 3-5 without having to work out or watch my eating habits until after my pregnancy. Like most woman I gained weight.
I had three huge events after my pregnancy that had me depressed and turn to food. From my Dad passing away at 53 years old, to my mom getting struck by a car and flying 25ft in the air landing face first. Thankfully she survived. These events played a huge role in my weight fluctuation over the years. I was overweight and lost a lot of confidence. I was not comfortable in my clothes and I did not feel good about myself when I looked in the mirror. I stopped taking lots of pictures like I used to before I got pregnant. When I did take pictures or make videos I would make sure that it was a good angle and also have the camera aimed for chest and up to hide my belly.
The 1up transformation Facebook group is a lifesaver. This group has helped me out tremendously. I have met so many amazing people in this group. This group gives me way more support than my actual family and personal friends do.
My advice to you is if you feel unhappy with yourself or with the way your clothes are fitting you or you just need your confidence back please join this next spring challenge coming up April 25th. I speak with experience that one way or another life will always get in the way and there will always be an excuse if you do not make the time. Our bodies and our transformations are priceless. We need to be healthy for ourselves and also our partners and our kids and pets.”
