Thin it to Win it is a chance of a lifetime! There is no way I can afford to take off six months to even think about applying to be on “The Biggest Loser,” not to mention how much I would miss my husband, family and friends! So, being chosen to be a contestant in “Thin it to Win it” is giving me a chance to better myself without having to put my life completely on hold. I can’t even begin to explain how excited I was when Lisa called to tell me that I had been chosen! I know that I have to take full advantage of this opportunity,or I’ll have some major regrets (and a lot of people would be angry with me for blowing such a great chance that could have been given to someone else!)
Our first official meeting at Flab to Fab was exciting, unnerving, and eye opening all at the same time. After doing the fitness tests, I see that I have plenty of room for improvement, and the beginnings of a plan on how to make the improvements. The body measurements weren’t as painful as I thought they were going to be, although I still tried to avert my eyes. I know the numbers weren’t going to be good, so why torture myself!? I’ll look at the numbers at the end after I’ve lost weight and toned up! It could have been much more dejecting if Lisa and Shanna hadn’t been so supportive and reassuring throughout the whole process.
In setting my goals for this fitness challenge, I am trying to be a realist, and at the same time I want to set a goal that will challenge me. I would love it if at the end of this challenge I would be at least 60 pounds lighter, able to complete a 5K, and hopefully, winning “Thin it to Win it”!
