On my first day of the Challenge, I listened to Bonnie and thought this definitely isn’t for me… Then, Bonnie said something that stopped me in my tracks: “It’s time to take care of yourself!”
Those words changed my life… I have always been the one to take care of everyone else. This caretaker role hit the next level with the birth of my seriously ill child.
But, this time I knew Bonnie was right. It was about time to take care of myself… That was almost 5 months ago, and since that pivotal day in April, I took charge of my own life. At the end of my first 12 weeks, I was down 29.2lbs. I joined the summer challenge because I knew all the cookouts, parties and great summer treats would be too tempting to go it alone.
I continued with my clean eating and working out all summer long and lost just over 12lbs. To date I am down 41.2lbs and can’t wait for the fall challenge to begin!!
