370.4lbs lost between 39 competitors in 6 weeks. These results did not include the 7 people that did not make the final weigh in last night.
I am so proud of everyone! More than the weight loss, there is a new found sense of confidence and self esteem in people, feelings of positive body image, the indescribable happy looks on people’s faces, people feeling better in their clothes, personal stories of anxiety and depression becoming less and less of an issue, tears of joy, support as a team, people changing their eating, sleeping and workout habits, awareness for stress eating and certain addictions, etc.
If I could bottle up the hugs, smiles and look in my clients eyes I would be able to spread positive happiness to the world forever. I can’t explain it in words. Congrats to all of you who made positive changes. It wasn’t easy over the toughest time of year. Seriously, it’s insane how many calories are consumed over the holidays. Although everyone wanted final numbers, it wasn’t about much weight you lost. It was about feeling better about yourself. Whether you lost 1 or 30 pounds, the amount is just a bonus. The real success is your mood, energy and increased self esteem. It is about believing in yourself and knowing that you CAN achieve it. I thank you for letting me be a part of that.
