My 5 year old daughter has inspired me to be more healthy, It was 1 year ago I was 186lbs and could not even climb stairs without feeling winded let alone play outside with her or feel comfortable going swimming with her, all because I was ashamed of the way I looked. I don't want my daughter to feel bad about herself in any way so I started making healthy choices, eating better, training for a 5k and most recently finishing Insanity. I always made sure I never spoke negatively about myself especially in front of her but I realized that by not joining her in activities she loved I was still sending her unhealthy body issues, I'm a work in progress 🙂

She always has a smile and kind word for everyone! She is amazing!

  21. My youngest sister Brenna is my inspiration. Four years ago she decided to try to loose weight and change her eating to lower her cholesterol instead of going on meds-and she did. When I was headed that direction 2 yrs later I knew I could because she had. She's kept it off and is still going strong.

  29. I am inspired by my sister who overcame childhood obesity & is now a fitness instructor…& more fit than I am!

  30. I am my own inspiration. I know that may sound conceded, but I have decided to take MY life back. In high school I was fit and always worked out. I suffered from a knee injury that took all that away from me. I no longer could run, jump, or do lunges. I slowly started gaining weight and at the age of 27 I was blessed with my daughter. Since then I have maintained my weight, but it's not healthy or a weight to be proud of. I have decided to take my life back and be a mother my daughter can look up to and a wife my husband can be proud of. I started my challenge 21 days ago and am down 8lbs. I've very excited about that. It is now a life style change and not just a diet. My mind is set and I determined!! I want it and I want it bad!!

  31. My sister Jamie is an inspiring woman. She battled with weight most of her life. Being a self-described "fat-kid" lead her to be overweight for her teenage and early adult years. Though healthy, she had been unsatisfied with her physical appearance. In the summer of 2012, she joined a gym and started making healthy eating decisions. Because of her choices, the weight started falling off! Within a year, she lost 80 lbs! She's kept the weight off for over a year!! This is all coming from the sister who was considered the "smaller sister" for most of my life. In preparing for my wedding in the fall of 2011, I started running and dropped 25 lbs. I was in the best shape of my life. (My weight loss inspired my sister to start doing something about her weight!) Three weeks before I was married, I was laid off. It took 8 months for me to find a job. My self-worth plummeted and so did my healthy eating habits and exercise routine. The following January (2012) I found out I was pregnant. Being pregnant was the best gift and blessing, but my health wasn't in check and I wound up gaining 60 lbs! It was awful! Long story short, my sister soon became my inspiration to lose the weight. 11 months after my daughter was born, my sister moved from Pittsburgh to live in New Orleans with me. We joined a gym together and are now workout buddies. Since joining the gym 6 1/2 months ago, I've lost 40 lbs! I can't be more excited and it's great to know that my sister is always there cheering me on! We learn new exercises and take classes at the gym together. We share healthy recipes and sometimes cook for each other. She's the best!

  32. My best friend Jody inspires me to be healthy and stay strong. Through years of family abuse, a crazy marriage and raising 3 BEAUTIFUL daughters on her own, she always has time to remind me that I am worth fighting for. Her determination, compassion and strength not only makes me want to fight for myself, but thrive to be the best me possible.

  33. Patty Clark Harris My wonderful friend Stephanie Hartzler. On September 30, 2013, my husband passed away, and that day she called me and said he wanted to help me get healthy. She got me started on a healthcare supplement product line and eating plan and has encouraged me and worked out with me every day since that time. Last week I hit the 50 pound mark. I know she will be with me through the rest of my journey–to lose 100 more pounds. Both by trade (she is a physical therapist) and personally, she is actively committed to making the world a more healthy and happy place. I am blessed to call her my friend.
