Today is the last day you can sign up for this challenge. It’s for 12-weeks to see what you can do to transform your body, sharing your progress and story. You have to submit photos (but you don’t have to have your feet and head, if you don’t want).
One of my YT subscribers posted this on his video description and I went to it. I’m not much for these contests, but I figure since I have my eating down and it’s relatively easy, and I’m going to continue on my weight loss journey and exercise, there might be a chance to win.
I’m at my lowest bodyfat right now at 22.3% and if all goes well, meaning I don’t get sick or injured or both, then I could possibly drop to 15% bodyfat in that 12 weeks, which is about 0.6% bodyfat/wk in 12-weeks.
I’ve been releasing an average of 0.82% bodyfat/wk the past 13 weeks, but I do realize that the closer I get to 15%, since my body has never been lower than where it is right now, it may be more challenging.
I think it’ll be a lot more noticeable once I get below 20% bodyfat that I’m really losing. And, I’m sure the closer I am to 15%, every pound will have a significant impact on my body.
So, since I’m going to lose bodyfat anyway in the next 12-weeks plus, I might as well enter this contest. Entering at least gives me a chance to win, and I think that my story is a good one, since I’ve been at this for so long, that what does it take to finally make all these breakthroughs and to hang in there for over a decade keeping at it.
It’s tough when you’ve worked this hard to not get the results, but to keep persevering, to continue to learn. I’m not saying that someone who all of a sudden decides they need to lose weight and get to doing it, and it happens, that that is minimized.
I’ve been told often by my ex-husband when we were married to just give up trying. Or, that people have said I’m just naturally big-boned and I wasn’t meant to be thin. I think that’s a lie from the pit of hell.
I will see myself get down to 20% in a healthy way, and I will see myself lower than 20% in a healthy way – eating whole, natural, nutritious, delicious foods, exercising (but not being fanatical), getting enough sleep, changing my mindset/attitude. They all contribute. And, to not need a lot of supplements – minus multi-vitamins, EFAs, probiotics. Those are what I take and my basics. I just hate taking pills, but I can’t seem to consume enough foods to offset NOT taking these.
Anyway, if you’re interested in doing this, it’s at Elite Ambition Transformation Challenge
