Where She Calls Home:

Job Description:

Chained to desk most of the day/Owner Embroidery Operation and Website Programmer/Inventory specialist

Description of the Challenge:

Informative, Organized, Motivational tool you can use to better yourself and make new relationships.  Workouts are short and to the point but continue to be challenging after 2 years.  The private facebook page makes all the difference as you connect with other women.

What the challenge meant to you?

So much!  I started the challenge when I was at the lowest point in my life.  In the beginning stages of divorce after 20 years of marriage.  The challenge gave me a positive focus during the rough times.  The support you get thru this program cannot be duplicated!  I went from a size 18 to size 8 in 9 months..hard work, consistency and support was the key.  I learned how to eat properly and I am now enjoying more food than ever (6 meals a day!)  For those times when  splurge or “cheat” I no longer feel like it’s the end of the world and that I’ll go back to my size 18…I know I am in control of my body.   SKfit has given me the tools to be a good role model for my children and they are PROUD of ME!!  I am proud of me too!

Your favorite quote that kept you motivated:

Life Begins When you Stop Chasing Skinny (of course!)
