I decided to join the TT Challenge because it would make me work even harder than I already was. Before joining the TT Challenge I had recently started working out at Sheboygan Fit Body Boot Camp with Certified Turbulence Trainer Brent Neevel.
Prior to joining I did not work out at all. I worked full time, took care of two children, and was facing serious health conditions. I had thyroid cancer, and was diagnosed with an autoimmune thyroid disease. If I did not change something I was headed down a very negative path. I started working out with high intensity interval training at Sheboygan FBBC back in October.
My weight-loss journey started at 229 lbs. The biggest challenge I faced was changing my diet. I knew I had to give up those bed time snacks, unnecessary binge trips to the fridge, and the eating out frequently. At this point I realized that I needed to take control! This is exactly what I did.
Over the course of six months I have changed my diet and exercise to achieve the best results possible. I feel that over these past 12 weeks I have been able to increase my exercise, build my strength, and hone in on specific necessary diet changes.
The challenge has kept my fat loss journey cooking along, as I've shed an additional 22 pounds over the past 12 weeks (putting me down over 50 total). Plus, I've dropped numerous inches and four percent body fat over these 12 weeks.
I started working out 5 or more days a week and sometimes a couple times in one day. I started craving it. The more results I saw the harder I wanted to work. Each time I go in I give it my all. When I feel like giving up I remind myself that I need to keep going. I tell myself just a little bit longer, a little bit harder; it will all be worth it in the end.
Being able to keep up with my family, running around, playing, climbing, camping, being able to fit on rides, and not worrying about whether or not I will be able to do activities with them makes it all worthwhile. I am regaining control of my life and will never stop.
