Congratulations to our 2023 Summer 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Female 3rd place $4,000 cash prize winner Summer Fathke @summerfathke 


This is her story


“My name is Summer Fathke, this is the 5th time I signed up for the 1UP Transformation Challenge and the first time I've actually completed it! My weight is something I have struggled with my entire life. I've always been pretty active, but because I have issues balancing my diet, my weight has always fluctuated. I was doing pretty good at maintaining a healthy diet until 2 years ago when I slipped into some pretty bad eating habits. I started doing a ton of yo-yo dieting, eating a ton of fast food and telling myself I could make up for it on the days when I barely ate anything. I got stuck in this cycle and even submitted myself into multiple challenges to try and overcome it, but I always gave up around week 4. I knew this time had to be different.


Going into this challenge my one goal was to finish, no matter what. I truly love weight lifting, but I also incorporated fun active hobbies into my routine to keep it exciting (aerial silks and roller-skating turned out to be my favorites). In the past, I have quit my diet too many times solely because I got tired of eating the same boring foods, so this time around I started having fun in the kitchen! I found a way to eat the things I love and do the things I love while keeping it all maintainable. It was still a big mental challenge at times, but this helped a lot. 


For anyone starting their journey I just have one piece of advice, set yourself up for success! If you know that you can only make it to the gym 4 days a week, make those 4 days a week count! If you know you have a crazy sweet tooth, factor in some low-calorie ice cream to your daily macros instead of trying to deprive yourself! If you try to overload yourself or deprive yourself you will without a doubt give up, so instead set yourself up for success and slowly make adjustments from there."
