Lose 20 Pounds in Six Weeks … The Final Chapter!By Samantha von Sperling | April 25, 2012 | Entertainment, Relationships
Just just how much weight did Image Gal Samantha von Sperling lose in her six week challenge? She reveals all right here!
I’m 12 pounds lighter and feeling great. I’ve become girly again. Getting dressed has become fun again. The weight loss has impacted other areas of my life as well. I’ve become social again; I feel like going to events, mingling and shaking hands with my restored confidence and repaired self esteem. My weight loss has been great for my health, terrific for my looks and good for business. It’s win, win, win!
But life is never easy. The six weeks that Scott Bitterman of Emerge Athletics had agreed to train me for has come to an end and as we know, talented people are always in demand.
I did not manage to lose 20 pounds in six weeks, but in a manner slow, sane and steady, I lost 12 without starving or stressing.
IΓÇÖll admit I’m a little anxious about how my progress will be now that I’m on my own. There is something about having someone to check in with for support, guidance and accountability that really helps in this process.
Tip 1: Share your goals with someone supportive and ask them if they would be willing to have you checking with them. Or even better, find someone in your life who would also like to lose some weight and stay healthy, and do it together. IΓÇÖll be counting on my fellow DivaGals to keep me on point.
I intend to keep eating right, sprinkling SENSA and exercising until I reach my weight and fitness goals. It’s important that fitness is part of your healthy lifestyle journey and not just a goal on your check list in order to have staying power.
Tip 2: Make small changes gradually so you can have the power to conquer one small, lasting change over time rather than a crash and burn quick fix.
Try to do whatever you can during the day to make the right choices. Even if you fail in one area, like not going to the gym because your work schedule does not permit, does not mean that the whole day has to be a wash. Drink another glass of water, take the stairs, walk around the block fast on your break, do some abs before going to bed. All the little things you do and positive choices you make consistently do add up.
Don’t stress, do your best!
