It takes a lot to build new, healthy habits– but this weight loss challenge has done just that: I get restless now if I can’t make it to the gym. My body craves exercise, and I have realized the benefits of healthy eating. With the support of my trainers, I have learned to listen to my body, to push my perceived limits, and to harness new tools to benefit my nutrition. I discovered the MyFitnessPal app, and it has helped me be more aware of what I put into my body; it has really informed my food choices. I have also increased my metabolism by eating more, smaller meals throughout the day. I have more energy, I get more done during my day, and the support of the trainers keeps me more accountable to my health and fitness routine.
“My body craves exercise, and I have realized the benefits of healthy eating.”
I wear a fitness tracker, and since beginning the WLC, I have increased my daily step count by 2,500-3,000 steps. I’m moving so much more! In addition to the support of my trainers, I have found the support of other members during team training to be invaluable. I look forward to those high-fives after class, I’ve connected with a gym buddy, and I’m just better at sticking to my exercise routine. I’ve been branching out and checking out classes offered at the gym, and I’ve learned that I really enjoy dance classes and yoga, in addition to team training.
I can see and feel the changes that I have made over the course of this challenge. And others see it too! I have truly transformed my habits, and I make healthier choices overall. The 2017 WLC has provided me with the opportunity to make a lifestyle change, and I consider that a success.
