Sizzlin Summer Slimdown 2019 is over. Once again S3, our six week get ready for summer challenge has created a noticeable loss of weight in over 200 people. We started in the beginning of May with 211 people signed up for six weeks of diving deep and focusing on their nutrition. Their goal was to lose weight. In losing weight our goal is always to become a healthier version of ourselves. We knocked it out of the park this year.
Check out these numbers. We started with 50 teams between the 211 people who signed up for the challenge. 190 of those 211 did the final weigh in. 90% of the people who started this challenge, finished it That is phenomenal numbers. From those 190 people we loss 1, 354.5 pounds over the course of the challenge. (1300 pounds is as much as a male polar bear or a quarter horse)
Out of those 50 teams, each person on 39 teams completed their final weigh in. Which by the way was the average number of teams who completed our weekly challenges as well. Each week, every team who completed the challenge had their name thrown in a drawing for real prizes. The prizes ranged from meals cooked and delivered to the team or food items they'd need during the challenge to kitchen tools to use while prepping.
After the final numbers were in, 12 teams had over 4.99% of weight loss during the challenge. These teams were in it to win it. They took the challenge as a team and helped each other for six weeks. Working as a group, they achieved more than they could on their own.
High fives go out to these teams:
- The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
- The Naturals
- 8:30 Friends
- KECH us if you can
- Dan's Girls- Keeping up with the Jones
- Just do It
- Changing our Weighs
- Chafing the Dream
- Girl Power
- The Three Burritos and Refried Beans
Our team winners walked away with over $800 each. The secret to their team success? Daily check- ins amongst themselves. "Chafing the Dream" was made up of Katie Bean, Andria Collins, and Katrina Lebrecque. They trained each day together at 5am. They didn't miss one training time. They wrote each other in a group chat every day. I know they were snapping pictures of each meal and sending it to the group to keep themselves accountable. These ladies were tight knit in goals and how they were going to achieve them. They managed to lose 13.68% of their beginning weight during the challenge. Congratulations ladies.
One person took home the biggest check. Katrina Labrecque won the overall individual weight loss category in S3 2019. She lost 16.42% of her body weight. She has been on a journey to regain her body composition since her third child was born 8 months ago. She has twin, 4 year olds as well. Working full time and being a busy mom of 3 preschool kids is hard. Katrina took these last six weeks and focused much of her attention on herself. She is a healthier and happier mom and wife because of it.
While Katrina took home the top award, there is a big shout going out to 17 other individuals who lost over 9% of their body weight during Sizzlin Summer Slimdown 2019.
And these aren't the only winners. I've been saying this so much to many others who lost weight but didn't win a cash prize. "Did you make progress? Did you learn something new about your self? Can you continue this process? Then you've won, you've won something more than money. You've won the power to change. Things like the habit of planning meals, having a system to food prepping, setting aside weekly time to get meals ready for the week ahead, and getting yourself started with your first pound lost are giving yourself the power to change.
S3 involves cash prizes, and the ladies who won will enjoy their checks. And yet, we've all been given the power to change. What are you going to do with it moving forward?
To your best health,
