Kim just finished the 90 day Diva Challenge and her results are awesome. In just 90 days using Chalean Extreme, Kim lost 25.5 pounds and 28.5 inches!
She’s truly been an inspiration to many (starting her own challenge), including her husband who did the challenge with her and lost over 45 pounds. Read below to see her story and what she is planning on doing next.
My name is Kim, I am a 39 year old full-time wife, mother of 3, and business owner. Growing up I never had to worry about my weight. I could eat anything I wanted, never work out and always remained “skinny”.
When I had my first child 21 years ago I gained 65 lbs and within 2 months of his birthday I had lost all 65lbs plus 2 additional lbs.
I always thought that I was just very lucky to have the metabolism that I did. Over the next few years my body started to “settle” a bit. I went from 125 lbs to 150 and went from a size 3/5 to a 7/9.
In 1998 I got pregnant with my daughter and gained almost 40 lbs. which topped me off at the heaviest I’ve ever been which was around 190 lbs. After the birth of my daughter, weight remained. At this point I thought it was just because there was more stress in my life.
Not true. Over the next 5, 10, 13 years the weight remained. I went on a bit of a yo-yo for awhile. I could diet and drop 10-15 lbs, then stop and it would come right back. I couldn’t get under 165 no matter what I tried.
I was unhappy that my body was unhealthy, I was tired of my clothes feeling tight. I got to the point where I refused to buy bigger pants, because if I did – that meant I was gaining more weight . So instead, I squeezed into clothes that were ultimately too small for my body.
In February of 2012 I received an email from Coach Tony with information about a 90 Day Fitness Challenge. My husband had gotten an email about a week before with the same information. I was excited from the moment I read it.
I LOVE a Challenge and I figured it would be a great way to get both myself and my husband off the couch. What did we have to lose? $200? We spend that on junk food, it was worth a try.
I am approaching my 40th Birthday this year and I am tired of being “stuffed” into my clothes and being uncomfortable with myself.
Our Challenge started in March, 2012 and I was hooked from Day 1. I honestly didn’t think I would sweat as much as I did. (I don’t know why I would think working out was “easy” – maybe because I had never really done it before). At the end of Week 1 – I was down 7.5 lbs.
I was amazed at my results and wanted more. This made me push harder every week and make the right nutritional choices for my body. I gave up alcohol completely because I found that I would rather eat those calories than drink them. I continued to see great results week by week.
Becoming a Coach
I then was so impressed that I became a Beachbody Coach as well.
I started a Challenge Group in April 2012 and my ladies are having amazing results as well. My mom (who is almost 60) is down 26 lbs in just 2 months. She is “addicted” to her workouts now too. She has told me that she cannot believe it took her almost 60 years to figure out how to be healthy. In May, her and I walked our first 5K together and she is already planning our 2nd.
