Holiday Extravaganza Winner!

And The Winner Is…

The Holiday Extravaganza has officially come to a close, and the results have been tallied. It was QUITE a successful year, as almost 50% of the participants got their money back! A total of 102 pounds lost among the whole group! BRAVO! Congratulations go out to (in no particular order):

Sarah Bennett (last years winner), Abbey Boehmer, Mercer Brockenbrough, Josh Bryson, Julia Cannizzaro, Amy Chisholm, Stacie Collins, Sharon Denero, Kasey Dillard, Maria Frankowiak, Luci Furlow, Matt & Ashley Gottschalk, Donna Henson, Rosie Leblanc, David Lowery, Jason Matthews, Lauren McElhannon, Angela Miller, Meg Parker, Lindsey Pollack, Angela Sheppard, Dana Stumler, Velena Vego, Jill Walton, Wendy & David Weiglein, and Caroline Ward (I did it this year)!

I am so proud of everyone who participated! Even those who did not get their money back did not gain a significant amount over the holiday.

The purpose of this contest is to make you more conscientious of eating throughout the holiday season, therefore, trying to maintain your weight from Thanksgiving through New Years. However, there are some who are SO good that they even LOSE a significant amount of weight over that time period.

It was a REALLY tight race for

2nd &  3rd place! I had 4 in the running! Remember, this is by percentage weight loss. Ashley Gottschalk 5.41%,Hannah Gunter 4.55%,Rosie LaBlanc 4.57% , and December client spotlight Velena Vego 4.17% (she is still loosing ) There were actually several more in that 3% range! GREAT work everyone!

And now for the moment you have all been waiting for…

The 2012-13 Holiday Extravaganza Champion is…

Brionne Antwine - WINNER 2013

 Brionne was my first client ever and the woman who inspired me to run the Athens ½ marathon for the 1st time Wow!   She attended my fitness classes at the church religiously this fall and continues to walk and run pushing her 4th little child daily!

Brionne had to give up many a peppermint milkshake to lose the whopping 12 pounds that came off of her frame!  Brionne lost a total of 7.87% of her body weight over the holidays! Just amazing- keep inspiring others Brionne, to live a healthy lifestyle! Thank you!!


Congratulations to all who all who participated! Keep up the great work!
