Healthy Through The Holidays!……..And the Winner Is…………..

Let me start by saying this has been an amazing couple of months for me personally.  I cannot tell you how wonderful and motivated it made me feel to read the daily posts and see the encouraging words being spoken.  This is a rough time of year and the temptations are all around us and having a place and group of people to help us get through it all is so incredible!  You all supported each other in a huge way.

I had one participant tell me on my radio show last night that she actually LOST ten pounds during the holiday season instead of gaining.  THAt IS FaNTASTIC!  I want to hear from more of you who either maintained or lost over the course of the contest!  Leave me some comments here and tell me how you did.

I know many of you started out strong and then life got in the way and you were not able to participate as much but do not let that get you down!  Just remember that each day you DID participate was another day of a healthy life being lived.

Several have said that this challenge really helped them and they hated to see it end SO we are doing a new group concept for the entire year of 2012.

    I maintained my weight through the holliday’s. I am more proud that I have maintained my target weight for the past 9 months than I am for the 300 lb weight loss. It is always in maintaining you new eating and exercise program for a lifetime. Keep going one day at a time.
