My weight loss and fitness journey is much like everyone who has issues with overeating. I too have traveled the path of going up and down the scale many times in my life. What led me to want a change and getting serious with Snap Fitness started in 2002 when I was diagnosed with cancer.
I did exactly what the doctors told me. I healed from surgery, chemo, and radiation then went on just as I had before (poor eating habits and not enough exercise) until I was told in 2012 that the cancer had returned.
This time I did plenty of research, learning that cancer cells love an obese living environment: lots of sugar to snack on and plenty of stress in your life. This time, surgery required a longer healing process. I resolved to change my eating habits and get some of the stress out of my life.
For three years, I was able to keep on that path, then I started slipping back into my old eating ways, and the weight slowly crept back on. I did some serious soul searching and realized I needed help with my journey.
I had been a member of Snap Fitness for several years, but was not taking full advantage of the fitness program offered there. In January, Snap Fitness had a Weight-Loss Challenge and I committed myself to my health, weight loss, and fitness!
I took advantage of the challenge, their trainers, staff, supplements, meal plans, Fitness On Demand, boot camps, and all the classes that are offered at Snap Fitness. When the challenge ended, I won the highest percentage weight loss and a $250 gift card!
Ashlee, a trainer at Snap Fitness, then started the Wellness Program so that members are able to continue their journey to great health and fitness. There are weekly challenges and posting to My Fitness Pal keeps me accountable! It is a great support system.
With the guidance I have received through the trainers and staff, I have lost 34 pounds and am within six pounds of my goal. My oncologist is very pleased with my progress. He told me that my blood work is fantastic, the weight loss is great, and to stay on track to stay healthy! Snap Fitness has knowledgeable trainers and friendly staff that are very supportive. I firmly believe that anyone, at any age, can become fit and healthy. I can honestly say that I am feeling healthy, energetic, happy, and most of all, very blessed!
