Congratulations to our 2023 Summer 8 Week #1uptransformationchallenge Male 2nd place $6,000 cash prize winner David Thomas @davethomas224
This is his story:
“My son recommended this challenge to me. Around the time I signed up, my friend/brother/Navy officer (Joe) died from a rare form of cancer. Seeing someone I love slowly die made me question my own mortality. His death made me ask myself "Am I doing everything I can to make sure I am living a healthy life for myself, my kids, my grandson?" The answer was NO! So I dedicated my challenge to Joe. Anytime I wanted to give up, eat crappy or be lazy - I thought of Joe, my kids and grandson. On the last weekend of the Summer Challenge, I went to Joe’s funeral and said goodbye. He received a 21 gun salute. Do not take any day for granted. You owe it to yourself to be the best version of you!
The biggest hurdle for me in this challenge was nutrition. I’m always on the go and have a LEVEL 10 sweet tooth! 1up protein shakes/ brownies saved me! Eventually, I got better at meal prep and cooking. Eating better made my body felt so good. Most of my inflammation and bloating went away. My skin got better, my mood improved and motivation went through the roof! This challenge really taught me the value of great nutrition. I wasn’t perfect, I had set backs, but this time around I didn’t let the setbacks snowball.
This challenge was life changing. It really was. The Facebook group is a great combination of encouragement and advice with a little competitiveness sprinkled on top - everything I needed! Everyone needs to join this challenge! We can help make the world a healthier place, one 8-week challenge at a time! If you are thinking about joining, my advice is to quit thinking about it and DO IT! Don’t waste another day!”
