Congratulations to our 2023 Spring 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Female 2nd place $6,000 cash prize winner Danielle Manning @daniellemmanning
This is her story
“ As a single mom of 4 children I once thought sticking to a routine to better myself for 8 weeks was impossible. I have tried to complete this challenge several times but was not successful. This last year I gained almost 35 lbs in a little under 4 months due to an undiagnosed underlying disease onset by my PCOS. Once I received the proper diagnosis, medication, and treatment plan I decided I was going to now put the work in to lose the weight that I gained. A few weeks later 1Up released their Spring 2023 Challenge and I felt like it was all a sign that I needed, so I signed up. During this challenge I never once felt defeated or discouraged. In previous challenges I put so much pressure on myself to make sure I completed a workout, ate correctly, and did everything right that ultimately is what caused me to fail. My main concern during the challenge was giving myself grace and waking up everyday to be better than I was the previous day. Successfully completing the challenge is literally 80% mental. Some days in the first two weeks were mentally hard adapting to physical exhaustion due to a new lifestyle. I would also turn to the 1UP Group for motivation and advice. They never failed to keep me going on those really hard days. The love and support felt in that group is unmatched.
Ultimately I feel like everyone is so fixated on winning money or losing 30lbs like other challenge participants, but they forget that if you go the entire 8 weeks and only lose one, two, or ten pounds you are still a successful participant, because you were better than who you were 8 weeks ago.”
