Fitness Ridge Results
Well, I have been very busy since I've been home working hard to apply what I learned at the Biggest Loser Resort and Spa.
First of all, the experience was amazing. Shannon and I had an excellent time. It was HARD work. We hiked every day for 3 hours then we came back and worked out another 4 hours a day at the resort. The trainers were amazing as were all the wait staff and hiking guides.
The best information I learned was something I've heard all of my life. Calories in, calories out. That is the basics and the truth that works.
At the resort, you test out on Sunday after your week there. My results were that I lost 6 pounds and 8 inches. The trainers told us that the weight loss usually continued for most people the week they got home. It happened for me as well. I lost another 4 pounds the next week. Since then, I have lost 5 more pounds.
I have wrestled with gaining and losing the same 5 to 7 pounds FOREVER! But this time, I feel like I have the tools to get fit and stay fit and healthy!
How wonderful that I now have this information!! I love it!!! I'm so excited and grateful that I got this opportunity through my best friend Shannon to go to such a place. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!
I am happy and blessed!! I have a daughter that brings joy to my life and a husband that loves the Lord. I love being a stay at home mom and I love to play Bunco, read, workout, and spend time with my family!
Proverbs 3:5-6 is one of my favorite verses. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all thy ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths."
