How the week went: I was very proud of my weigh-in and I’m glad to be back into my workout routine.

Blog excerpt: All last week I was pretty scared being at camp and being surrounded by junk food. We would go on field trips and stop to get snacks which (I was) looked (at) kind of weird when I said no.

How the week went: I’m happy that I am continuing to lose weight. It makes me think I’m doing something right here.

Blog excerpt: My sister and I just recently came home from a five-day stay at a church camp, which was a true challenge to stay active and eat healthy all week.

Kerrin Kramer

How the week went: This week, I had my first session with my personal trainer. She made an awesome workout around the sports I play. I was really sore at first, but it was a great workout.

Blog excerpt: When my brother and I go to the YMCA to workout, we both have so much fun, and I think we both are each other’s much needed support systems. We both are having a lot of fun competing to see who can run the fastest in the least amount of time or who can row the fastest.

Quinten Scroggs

How the week went: I’ve been seriously watching my diet, but it’s been hard to get to the weight room every day. I really need to work on getting a routine. Overall though, this has been a successful week.

Blog excerpt: I learned this week that you really need to find time to go and work out. Also, stick with your routine. If you can, try to find a workout buddy to help keep yourself motivated.

Anna Shaffer

How the week went: I lost one pound this week. I’ve been doing a lot of running and weight training. Some days I choose the elliptical or a different workout machine to change it up.

Kaitlin Toliver

How the week went: I have been eating right and everything but it just seems like I can never find time to workout like I want to. Going into this program seemed simple at first – exercising, eating healthy, all that jazz – but now it seems like I let myself down.
