When Loretta D. first joined the Snap Fitness in Franksville, WI, last January, she weighed 222 pounds and liked working out in the middle of the day when nobody else was around.
On March 1, she signed up for her club's "Weight Loss Challenge," which included weighing in during staffed hours. That's how she met her location's manager, Laurie.
Laurie's encouragement and enthusiam gave Loretta the extra motivation she needed. Loretta started doing new exercise routines and working out with fellow gym members.
Six weeks later, Loretta lost 32 pounds and won the "Weight Loss Challenge." She says she exercises four times weekly; cardio all four days and strength training on three. In addition, Loretta's eating habits have improved. She eats healthy three or four times daily with snacks in between. She gets one "free day" each week to eat whatever she wants, but after that, it's back to the healthy choices!
Loretta is now down to 145 pounds and went from a size 16 to a size 8. She says she has less body aches and enjoys her new life.
Way to go, Loretta!
