Let’s congratulate Helen, the winner of our Group II 60 Day Challenge. She’s lost more than 28.6 lbs & 6.3% body fat! She has almost reached another milestone of losing over 100 lbs since joining NuLife.
Why did you decide to enter the 60 Day Challenge?
I was at a standstill with my weight and was getting discouraged. My 40th birthday was coming up in 3 months so I decided to give it a try to push through the plateau I was in as well as lose some weight for my Birthday Party.
How did you stay motivated and focused?
My family and my good friends who did the challenge with me encouraged and pushed me through. They continued to tell me to stay focused, keep pushing. Reminding me of my Birthday which was coming up soon.
What obstacles did you face during the challenge?
Actually I didnt face any obstacles. Thank God!
At any time, did you want to quit the challenge?
Yes. I try to attend all the 6am classes so getting up everyday at 5am to be at the gym at 6am was definitely a challenge, but I must say after a couple of weeks. It got much easier.
Was it harded to not gain weight or to work out for 60 consecutive days?
I would say the pressure of not gaining weight was the hardest. But I learned so much about my body within those 60 days. What I can or can not eat. What agreed with my body and what didnt. It was definitely a learning experience.
How do you feel about winning the challenge?
I am so excited and truly blessed. While competing in the challenge I hit my 100lb weight loss. So I must say this challenge didnt just get me back on track. Some dreams came true.
