17 competitors fought hard in our 6 week Biggest Loser Challenge! Just a reminder that you should not weigh yourself on a regular basis. Success should be based on how you feel, how your clothes are fitting and remember not to get discouraged. Just because the 6 week Challenge is up does not mean you should stop. Keep it up because you have just started your Journey!
The challenge was not just about the weight loss or the scale, it was about lifestyle changes, feeling better about yourself and making healthy changes. The real success is in your mood, energy and increased self esteem and awareness. It is about believing in yourself and knowing that you CAN achieve it. Being healthy and fit is a journey, not an immediate fix.
And the Winner is…
1st Place prize:
Sandee Clairmont with a total of 8.94% of body and weight lost 16.8 lbs lost
Prize won: $250 Fit4Females Gift Certificate and $166 cash for the penalty weigh in pod. Sandee has been a long time member at Fit4Females. Like all of us, Sandee got consumed with work, being a mom and finding a balance and so she put her workouts on the back burner. In February, she decided enough was enough, joined the challenge to be motivated and came back to classes. Needless to say we are excited to have her incredible energy in class and so excited for her journey back to making her health a priority. She will be sweating out with the ladies in night classes. Please be sure to congratulate her.
2nd Place prize:
Erika Matkovich with a total of 7.16% of body weight lost and 14.8 lbs
Prize won: $100 Gift Certificate Hair Services with Amber Lynn Hair Studio (cut, colour, highlights, etc.) and a $100 Gift Certificate towards any lifestyle photography package (baby/family/couple/maternity) with Kathy DeMerchant Photography. Most of you know Erika but what you might not know is that she just began her journey in Fitness. Erika is so passionate about Fit4Females and is a new Mom to a beautiful little girl. I am excited to share that Erika took all of the advice and changed her eating habits and got the support she needed from her amazing husband. Erika is one of our Hard Core Members who is happy to show up for workouts and ready to inspire others. Way to go Erika, I know she would love a high five when you see her in classes!
3rd Place prize:
Tanya Chaine with a total of 7.00% of body weight loss and 10.4lbs lost.
Prize won: $50 Fit4Females Gift Certificate. Tanya has also been a long time member at Fit4Females and she too decided to make herself and health a priority. Tanya weighed in every week and decided to never know what her weight was. She went into the challenge wanting to make a healthy change and did not want to obsess over numbers. She is a proud Mom and on a great journey to get strong and healthy. Congrats Tanya, we know that you will be giving it your all in night classes! Give her a big congrats.
