“I first joined BEFIT almost 2 years ago. I only went to the gym 2-3 times a week and didn’t eat very well. I contemplated entering the Biggest Winner Challenge and finally decided to commit to it. I looked forward to the nutrition talk the day the challenge began. I had no idea how much the mental motivation part of the talk would stick with me. Most of this is mental. Making a conscious decision not to take that treat at work, taking the stairs instead of the elevator and working out right to the beep all made a difference. As the pounds came off it made me work harder. I moved up to the fitness level from fundamentals.

On the path to achieving my goals I cut out treats, I didn’t snack after dinner, I limited carbs and ate more protein and veggies, and worked out 5 days a week. I enjoy working out now and feel bad when I miss a day (never thought I would say that!).

Since the Biggest Winner, I have tried to maintain the challenge in my mind. During the week I stick to healthy eating and now reserve treats like wine and chocolate for the weekends. My will power has surprised me. I don’t snack after dinner and limit carbs in my meals.I have maintained my workouts to 4-5 days a week as this is what I am used to, and enjoy it. The effort has been worth it.

Thanks to all the BEFIT staff for their motivation and support. I look forward to continuing my healthy lifestyle!”
