Project Description

It was time to do something for myself.

In September 2013 I sent my last child to college and decided it was time to do something for myself.  I went “gym hunting” and ended up at momentum. At that time I was 50 lbs overweight.  I began working out several times a week with guidance from the staff and lost about 20 lbs.  Then came the holidays.  I did gain about 10 lbs back. Over the holidays my youngest sister (by 12 years) challenged me to a triathlon  sprint.  I talked with the staff at Momentum and they encouraged me to do it.  I knew I would have to lose the weight I regained as well as more.  I joined “Take it Off” and had training sessions  once a week to get me in shape strength wise as well as cardiovascular.  I can say now that I completed the sprint 4th in my age category, lost 35lbs  and dropped from a size 16 (going on 18) to a size 10.   Was it easy? No. Was it doable? Yes.  However I could not have done it without the encouragement I received from the staff and the clientele at Momentum.  Thank you all.
