The Spotlight is Out on All S3 Winners
Have you ever seen 3 emus and a penguin all stacked on top of each other? That is the distance of inches lost if you combine each participant’s loss in their waist measurement at Get Fit NH’s Sizzlin’ Summer Slimdown Challenge.
Have you measured a Beluga whale? If you could (or when you did) you’d find it was the same distance if we added up each S3 peep’s hip measurement that was lost when combined.
How cool is that?
I haven’t even mentioned that as a group we lost one thousand three hundred and sixty two pounds. That’s 5,448 sticks of butter!
Take a sneak peek into the Top 10 Winning Team’s minds. It will inspire you to achieve more than you believe you can.
What one thing did you do well over the six weeks of Sizzlin' Summer Slimdown?
AnnMarie from Team Vacation Money wrote: “Meal planning was key. Sticking to the meal plan, and avoiding the candy and ice cream at work.”
Andria from Team Chafing the Dream filled us in on her daily wins: “ I drank a lots of water. I was able to stay on track when I unexpectedly had to stay with my Mom as she recovered from surgery. Stuck to eating real foods. When I eat healthy I find I am satisfied and have no cravings!”
Lauren from Team Rose and Ginger said one day: “I said no to cake! Lol- it wasn't easy! But...it was worth it and rewarding. And I was also surprised with how it wasn't even on my radar after I had an apple.”
Millie said that she: “Found great ways to serve veggies, including fiddlehead ferns and daikon radishes.”
When we asked the top 20 people what we could do to help them one week, here are some of the things that were mentioned.
"I feel things are going well so far and can't think of anything right now. I just need to stay focus and on track.” -Wayne
"Honestly, a cheat meal. I haven't had one since April 6th. Probably Mexican food, lol”
"Just by being here for us. I love that coach Adam pushes me to challenge and push myself! Give me more!!” -Evelyn
When thinking of one thing you would tell others to do in order to see results:
"Having lots of protein and veggies cooked at all times. Bulk is key to sanity!! Trays of meatloaf and sausage from previous Get Fit recipes are my savior as well as frozen bags of cauliflower in bulk to mash in” -Kim
"I realize that I don't need to eat as much as I was eating before. I went 6 weeks without it.” -Lori
"Eating! Keeping things super simple” -Melissa
Your favorite go-to meal during S3?
"Ground turkey sausage/baked egg/green beans w/mushrooms/riced cauliflower and of course hot sauce!!" -Scott
"Spinach and berry shake" -Susan
"Eggs, peppers, and onions." -Lindsey
Where would they hide a giraffe?
"Hmmmm, a giraffe is pretty hard to hide!! In some thick tall trees I suppose! It's about as hard to hide as hiding if I'm dishonest with my progress on S3!"
"In the 54 acres behind my house! Lol! And I would visit her all day long! Her name will be Princess!"
"Why hide it, I’d show it off!"
And when they play Rock/Paper/Scissors, none of them will pick paper!
Seriously, all S3 peeps worked hard to change themselves. It was through consistently eating just real food over and over that led them to great change.
