Motivation for Week 1

Now that you have been in Weigh In Erie for a week now, how are things going? Have you set attainable goals? What have you changed in your life for the better? Diet and exercise change will make a difference in your weekly routine, but planning out your schedule and time managing will make it possible. You may feel overwhelmed at first, tired, hungry and that all of your hard work isn’t even making a difference. STICK TO IT AND KEEP GOING! It will get easier. And remember, you’re not ‘dieting’ you are making a lifestyle change. You have taken the first step to a new life. As I told some of you that I talked to last Sunday, think of this as the last time you will ever see that number on the scale and look at the mirror and think “how did I let myself get like this.” Remember you have the support of the entire staff at Best Fitness, I highly suggest going to Best Fitness today at 1pm and join in on the free cardio class. You will be able to meet other contestants and help each other stay motivated and share tips on what you have been doing, what works and what doesn’t. I’m excited for each one of you and am excited to hear and see all of the success stories!


If you haven’t already, here are a few things to think about before the first checkpoint:

1. Make a short term goal as well as a long term goal of weight loss for the competition
2. Plan on making your meals on Sunday, sectioning them out for the week, keeping a few in the fridge and some in the freezer if necessary
3. Make a list of the foods you enjoy so that you can continue to change it up and not get bored with your food

Please post any questions that you may have and like Best Fitness on Facebook for daily “Focus on Fitness” tips.

    • Ali Stockton says:

      Are you currently a member at Best Fitness? If so we can set up a time to meet and talk a little bit so I can get to know you and what you are looking for in the gym and we can go from there!

  2. I was wondering if the other weigh ins are at the same times or are they whenever throughout the day?

    • Ali Stockton says:

      The Weigh In times are not specified for the rest of the checkpoints. We just ask that you stop by any time between 9am-5pm and tell the front desk that is what you are here for!
