I just did my final weigh-in and measurements for the June Challenge Group that I participated in and I had some amazing results. I honestly didn't expect to have this much success in a 4 week period, but I guess it goes to show what eating right can do to get your body moving in the right direction.

Ever since I lost over 50 lbs 3 years ago, I've hovered around 200 lbs and focused on exercise to keep from gaining the weight back. But, my mentality was to workout daily and burn the calories that I consume.  I even counted calories most days to be sure that I was working it off effectively.  Then if I wanted to lose some weight, I had to deprive myself and would ultimately gain it back after.

During this group I learned to eat more often, eat the right things, and drink plenty of water.  The addition of Shakeology (HUGE game changer for me) gave me more energy and took away my sweets cravings, so that nightly ice cream wasn't a factor any more :)  Don't get me wrong, I still enjoy those things, just actually crave them way less than I used to.

Overall this month, I'm down 11 lbs and hit a goal weight of 189 that I set over two years ago and never came close to!  I also lost 2.5 inches from my waist, 2 inches from my hips and my body fat is down 1.5%  My blood pressure even dropped over 10 points. The most important part is that I didn't do a diet here, I learned how to live better and I don't feel that I need to change anything now that the month is over. I'll continue to use what I've learned and have developed a new healthier lifestyle that is sustainable!

I really want to help others achieve the same success I have, so I have decided to run Monthly Challenge Groups starting in July.  I have spots available starting with the August group, so please let me know if this is something that you or someone you care about would be interested in participating in :)  Post in the comments or contact me on Facebook.
