There are so many reasons why I have entered the challenge. Firstly, I want to be a good example to my children in relation to all thing’s health and weight. There are so many fads out there and my little girl is already worried about her weight, so I really want to be a healthy example for them and demonstrate what healthy and fit should look like. I need to lose weight – Dr’s orders! I have been told that I have very high cholesterol and that I need to lose weight and lower my cholesterol, especially because family history of severe heart disease. So, losing weight is no longer just something I want for myself, I actually need to get my health in order and maintain it if I want to avoid medication or future health concerns. Finally, I really want to lose weight, get fit and strong and reach my goal of fitting back into my size 10 clothes. I have a wardrobe full that I have not been able to wear in years. I want to look and feel fit, healthy and toned, to match how I feel on the inside. I also want to look fab in a bikini! Also super excited ..., because my husband is doing this challenge with me.... so it will be a family lifestyle change. Very excited about having “becoming healthy” a family goal! Good luck to all the other Challengers!
