- Menza’s 90 lbs Gone Before and Afters with a Raw Food Diet December 5, 2014
Menza’s 90 lbs Gone Before and Afters with a Raw Food Diet
Well, again, I have put you in a place where you have to trust me. For those who have been watching Menza lose her weight, you know how well she’s done. For others, you’ll need to go to her journey page and see all of her before and afters so you are convinced. For her hundred pound before and afters we are working to show her face. Unfortunately, her start photos were a little messed up, so we may do some cut and paste!
Menza is one of our Rawk Starz Divas. She is the mother of five, the oldest is 24. Next time when you see her face, you won’t believe she could have a 24 year old son. That’s the thing about all three of our current top divas. They look so healthy and fit. So many are afraid of our diet. I think the proof is in these wonderful, determined women. Fruits, veggies, hemp, greens and walking.
Oh, I forgot to say, Menza lost her 90 lbs in a little less than 9 months.
I wrote Menza back this evening and asked where she thinks she can lose more weight. Her tummy is flat, her waist is slim. She is beautiful. I think it’s time to start transitioning to maintenance. Don’t you agree?

- JanBree’s 80 lbs Gone – I Promise It’s The Same Woman! November 26, 2014
JanBree’s 80 lbs Gone – I Promise It’s The Same Woman!
Okay, I know. You don’t believe me. You think I’m trying to pull something over on you. There is no way these two women are the same. I promise. I give you my word. Hmmm, not enough, huh? I get it. I’m a diet coach, I must be telling a tall one. But, look. Look on the two front views. Look at her hands, they are held in the exact same manner. It’s her!! JanBree. Same woman, 80 lbs less. Amazing, isn’t it.
The other day when Jan sent in her photos, she knew. She told the other divas that she was going to show everyone the pot of gold. So many obese women have no hope, no true belief that their lives can change. They think they are stuck. But, look. Look at JanBree. Stuck versus free!
I am so touched by these photos. I know her transformation is going to inspire so many. She is going to be what obese women think of when they go home tonight, when they look in the mirror tomorrow. When they feel down and beaten by their weight, they are going to remember her smile, her glow, her style, her transformation. They are going to wonder, could that really happen for me.
I’m telling you here and now, it can. It takes work, hard work. JanBree was not the fastest losing Diva. She had to watch Michelle fly past her in loses each week. She had to go days with no loss, but she never gave up, she never lost heart. She persevered, and here she is 9.5 months not just a few pounds from goal, which she is, but beautiful, and not just on the outside.
Okay, I’ve been sappy long enough. Here are JanBree’s 80 lb gone before and afters! Be amazed.
Jan, on behalf of the divas and all the other ladies at camp, thank you. Thank you for showing everyone this is a journey that does lead to that pot of gold and that each of us deserves the opportunity to get there. I am so proud of you. You’re beautiful and a real joy to have at camp.

- SunnyB Hits 70 lbs Gone with a Raw Food Diet and Walking December 23, 2014
SunnyB Hits 70 lbs Gone with a Raw Food Diet and Walking
I know, I know, I just showed you her 60 lbs gone photos last week. Here’s what happened. She was away on a cruise then vacation and the scale she brought with her said she had lost 63 pounds. But, when she got home a couple of days later, the home scale said she had lost 69 lbs and on Monday, it was 70.4 lbs gone.
Basically, we skipped her 60 lbs gone photo. This is happening so fast for her, even I am out of my element. 70 lbs in 2 months. That’s unheard of. Don’t in anyway expect this will happen for you. It usually takes 4-5 months for our Rawk Divas to lose 70 lbs.
To make sure everything was okay, Sunny went to see her naturopath. The naturopath wasn’t concerned with the fast weight loss, so we are going to push forward. You can tell by these photos, she looks real healthy. This diet loves her. She has some edema, but she was driving a lot and that is common, and it’s been a problem for her prior to RFBC.
What can I say, but wow. I’m sure you will agree!
Sunny is 5 ft 11 inches tall and has been perfect on plan since day 1. She came with 200 lbs to lose and by the way she’s going that first 100 is going to be gone by February. Wow.

- Free’s 70 lbs Gone in 16 Weeks Before and Afters December 8, 2014
Free’s 70 lbs Gone in 16 Weeks Before and Afters
Free is following in Michelle’s, footsteps. She has been on plan since the day she started and has kept to it through these past 16 weeks. Tonight when she sent me her before and afters, she said she actually hit 71 lbs gone by Sunday night. Way to go, Free.
That sweater she’s wearing is a medium. Now that feels great. Smaller clothes make such a huge difference in how we feel about ourselves. Big time kudos, Free.
Free is a 100 lb in 7 month challenger. She’s got 3 months and 30 pounds to go. For her that’s easy peasy!

VforLove Hits 70 lbs Gone in 4.75 Months
Imagine that 70 lbs gone. Today is August 28th. If you started next Monday and followed VforLove’s footsteps, come late January, you could be 70 lbs thinner? Where would that put you on your path to wellness?
VforLove is not a woman of many words, but she is dedicated to her weight loss and finding her way to a weight she feels good at and can maintain. She rarely messes up, and gets her exercise in most days and still, she dropped so much so fast. We are all very proud of her.
VforLove started at RFBC in the 300’s. The weight loss is really starting to show as well as the toning from all that walking. Way to go VforLove!

- Lagarto’s 75 lbs Gone Before and Afters January 17, 2014
Lagarto’s 75 lbs Gone Before and Afters
Check out these photos. 75 lbs is equivalent to a ten year old child. Gone, removed from his life. The other day he went to see his doctor and was told he had the health of a teenager, although he is past 50. This is an amazing diet. A transforming one. Not just the diet, but the exercise. When he started, walking up 3 flights of stairs winded him. Now he thinks nothing of it. He wanted to return to swimming but didn’t think he could build his strength back. Now he swims a mile at a time at a pace even he didn’t think he could recover. We are all very proud of his hard work and what he contributes to RFBC.
Lagarto is a Full Member at Raw Food Boot Camp doing our Rawk Starz diet.
- Foteen at Goal! September 18, 2014
Foteen at Goal!
Foteen took the longer road to goal. She decided early on that getting to goal was more important than running toward it. She has gone between our 100% raw diet and our Wholy Rawkers 50%raw diet. Has she been perfect? Nope. Has she been determined? You bet. She even took off 6 weeks for a European Vacation, and maintained her weight. We were all so impressed.
By going slower, she has fought off most of her bad food behaviors and habits. She is starting maintenance today by upping her calories, just to 1400. Adding back in some foods she missed that stall weight loss like bananas and chickpeas, and bringing her exercise down to 75-90 minutes a day. This will be changing over the course of the next couple of months as we work toward finding her perfect maintenance diet and calories. She will likely loose another 5 pounds or so during this transition process.
So here are the stats:
Foteen is 63 Years Old and 5 foot 3.
She started RFBC on Jan 13, 2014 at 210 lbs.
8 Months later with 66 lbs gone, she weighs 144 lbs.
The photo of her in the red dress is beautiful. I can’t show you her face, but she doesn’t look 60, that’s for sure. She showed it to the women in camp, and boy they were impressed. She glows!
As you may notice, there was a discernable crook in her back in the before photo which seems completely gone in her after photo. I asked her about this. She said that she has a slight scoliosis in her upper back and a problem with lumbar spondylolisthesis (mis alignment of L 3-4). She said she would get pain and numbness in her left leg due to the lower back problem, but now IT’S GONE! She called her new alignment amazing.
In full disclosure, a couple of months ago, she started taking a restorative yoga class, so how much of this was from the yoga, versus the exercise that she did as she lost the weight, and how much losing the weight had to do it, is up for discussion. Either way, it is amazing.
Today in our discussion thread, which was all about her hitting goal. I asked her to share some insight. Here is what she said. Below this is a list of inches lost. Oh, and on the dress on her treadmill wall? It didn’t fit right. It fit, but she made it years ago when her son was born, and things shifted too much since then, so she choose to be our lady in red!
Here’s what she had to say:
Wearing the imaginary crown and sash today!
First of all, I LOVE this group, especially the group we have now…….the most real and motivated and inspirational bunch of women. You are present in my photos. I am reflecting you as much as me. Thank you again and again.
I ran the gamut of all of Carlene’s diets. I chose Wholly Rawker because if I couldn’t do raw, I wasn’t failing and didn’t feel guilty. I love the way I feel when I eat 100% raw MOST of the time but some days I really needed beans or an egg. It worked for me to patchwork the plans.
The two things that come to mind as the biggest keys to success (when I look at what lead me down the path to my highest weight ever) are the curfew and daily exercise. I was a secret night time eater. My husband goes to bed early and I often stay up very late watching television. I would have a snack then another then another.. Bad bad terrible mindless habit. The curfew simplifies my night…..easy…..no food. If I want something, it’s a cup of tea or a glass of ice water. Simple. The second is exercise. I love to race walk I used to compete 15 years ago and now I’m back in competition. I love my DVR – treadmill lady cave. I can watch old movies and comedy shows endlessly. It’s all about finding your groove. Some people have to go to a gym, some have to have nature. Figure this important key out and it is a big part of the battle. Don’t fight with the exercise just find out what works for YOU.
I plan to maintain at this weight for 3-6 months then possibly attempt to get down to 135. I am only 5’3″ so right now I am still not quite in the “normal” BMI but I am really comfortable at this weight and since I chose it at the beginning, I decided to stick with it. It feels great to be just a “little” overweight.
Thanks for all of your accolades. I feel like Queen for a Day (only people my age would remember that TV show)! Really , two days, because Carlene was waxing poetic yesterday, too.
Looking forward to the next Goal marker and big milestone!
Here are her inches lost:
Neck : 0.75 inches
Under arms : 8.5
Under chest : 8
2″ above belly button: 10
Belly button: 7
2″ below belly button: 12
Left upper arm: 3 Right upper arm: 2.5
Above elbow:2.75. :2.5
Wrist: 0.25. :0.25
Upper thigh: 5.25. :5
Above knee: 3. :3.5
Ankle: 0.75. :0.75
- Green Queen Hits Goal Today! June 25, 2014
Green Queen Hits Goal Weight Today!
61.1 lbs Gone Forever as she moves into Maintenance
GreenQueen is a no-photo option member, so all you get to see are her feet. I saw her face, her body, her new look, and you’ll have to trust me on this. She looks great!
GreenQueen has learned so much about herself and food through her weight loss process, that we’re looking for an easier transition to maintenance. She gets what she needs to do now, and has no expectations on being perfect every day for the rest of her life. But she is sure, that when she isn’t perfect to her maintenance plan, that it is not going to be for weeks on end, added pounds on end, but just for that moment. She’s proven throughout her program that she can do this. It was harder at first, but through practice, she has learned that one break doesn’t require a second. This is one of the biggest lessons at Raw Food Boot Camp.
I hope you will congratulate her for this great success and support and encourage her as she transitions from weight loss mode to maintenance. She’s already planning to spend the next year with us to ensure maintenance is for life.
I know I speak for everyone at camp to say how proud we are of GreenQueen and how appreciated she is for the wealth of encouragement and inspiration she has shared during her weight loss journey.

They have been phenomenal together. LoveWins hit 32 lbs gone (I told you that is way beyond our average), Susie hit 20.6 lbs gone and Mopptiz hit 18.2 lbs gone.

Pogo’s 60 lbs Gone in 15 Weeks Before and Afters
Pogo is a fixture at camp. She’s our go to for smoothie spice combinations, and keeps her conversation group hopping. She is working on beating emotional eating and gets further along the way each week. This weekend she made a decision to push for extra loss, and she was a woman not to be beaten. We were all very proud of her.
Weekend used to be her biggest downfall, now she’s seeing them as her time to be POP and beyond!
I told her for her 70 lb photos she’s going to need smaller pants! I also made her a collage where her 50 lb photos were next to her 60 lb view. There was a huge difference. I’m telling you, it’s the walking.
By the way, she hasn’t been this weigh since her 20’s! How cool is that?

- KaCastro Hits 60 lbs Gone in 4.25 Months December 7, 2014
KaCastro Hits 60 lbs Gone in 4.25 Months
KaCastro is one of our Rawk Starz Divas. She is one busy woman, always traveling for her job, living out of suitcases and bags of produce. Since she joined, I swear she is gone traveling more than she’s home, but still. She is always at camp. She brings her food with her, she stays prepared and always finds a way to get in her 2 hours of walking a day. Her steadfastness to this program is truly inspiring.
Today, when she hit 60 lbs gone, while traveling, she told me that she went shopping this weekend and that her brain hasn’t caught up with her body. She was looking at 1X sizes. Everything was really big. She’s a solid 14 in shirts and 16 in pants, but her brain looks at them and thinks “no way! That’s too small!” And then, it’s not!
One of the hardest things for travelers when obese are the airplane seat belts. It is so hard to ask for a seat belt extender. I believe, KaCastro brought her own. Then a strange thing happened. She didn’t need one, and as you can see in this photo there was an extra 9 inches, maybe a foot, of extra belt she didn’t need. Now that, for many, is a huge milestone!

- Pogo Wins 50 lbs in 12 Weeks Challenge in 11 Weeks! November 17, 2014
Pogo Wins 50 lbs in 12 Weeks Challenge in 11 Weeks!
Pogo did it. She hit her first 50 lbs gone in 11 weeks, not the 12 allowed in the challenge. It hasn’t always been easy for her. She’s had her falls, but she got up each and every time and pushed forward. Everyone at camp has been cheering her on, and she didn’t let them down.
She did want me to tell you that her after clothes are ones she would never wear in public. I teased her back, that’s what almost everyone says about their after clothes!
The cool thing is that one day soon, these clothes will be big and baggy on her. So, she’s right, she probably will never have the chance to wear these clothes out in public.

- PaulaBear Celebrates 50 lbs Gone!! September 4, 2014
PaulaBear Celebrates 50 lbs Gone!
PaulaBear started on March 31st, and this past weekend, she hit her 50 lbs gone mark. We are all so proud of her. 5 Months, 50 lbs gone. Something to celebrate here at RFBC. Not everyone is a diva at camp, but Paula, who is a Group Only member can attest to how everyone can do this. Whether it’s 50 lbs in 3 month, 5 months or even 9 months, the thing about this is perseverance. Paula never gives up, she never backs off. She fights through the tough and the good times. She is our every woman at camp. You can look at her success and say to yourself. I can have what Paula got! And look at the B&A below. She has got a lot. Or rather, has lost a lot!
I am so proud of Paula. She has gone away on vacations and done the Group Only Program here at camp. She has struggled and she has got right back up. She is a hero here at camp because not once in these past 5 months have I ever heard her waiver on her determination to see this through. So, please celebrate this big loss with us and cheer Paula on as she works hard to break all her fat brain behaviors and habits to take this all the way to goal, and then keep it off for life.
RFBC needs more PaulaBears. Perseverance, determination, and a refusal to do anything other than succeed. Congratulations, PaulaBear.
PaulaBear does a 90% raw diet with an average of 1 hour of walking a day.

- Vicky’s No Before and Afters But Goal! March 8, 2014
Vicky Reaches Goal with 43 lbs Gone!
She’s probably going to kill me for showing her scale photo. But here it is. Vicky started with us through a program over the holidays where I let in those with a BMI under 33 with the no-photo option. She has been a star at camp every since. I am beyond proud of her. She came to camp convinced it would not work for her, that nothing would work for her. She didn’t believe that even if it did work for her that she would follow through with it. And she never believed it would take her all the way to goal.
I love getting to say, I told you so!
She doesn’t have a before and after to share, but she sent me photos. She’s beautiful. Big blue/green eyes, dark hair, and slender. At 5’5″ and 124.5 lbs, she is perfect.
We start maintenance today. Slowly. Did I say how proud I am of her?
- Vicky Hits Goal! March 8, 2014
Vicky joined over the holidays when we offered a special deal for those with a BMI under 33. She started RFBC believing weight loss was not possible for her. 43 lbs later and goal, we certainly proved her wrong. I am so proud of her. She has gotten past so many weight issues during these few months and has proven to herself that a thin healthy body is something she can get and maintain.
Vicky will receive her Goal chip. It’s my favorite! And she will receive a $25 off coupon for her next membership renewal. She starts Maintenance today. It’s a slow process to transition from weight loss to maintenance, but she’s ready.
- Taffina Earns Her 25 lbs Gone Chip in 29 Days October 30, 2013

- CJaneRun Hits 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks & Joins our 100 lb Challenge December 31, 2014
CJaneRun Hits 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks
& Joins our 100 lb Challenge
What can I say, CJaneRun is such a Rawk Starz Diva. And now she is going to join the 100 lb Challenge. I have no doubts she’ll make it. Her attitude is spot on. I mean look at that grin in her after photo. That is a woman holding a smug secret. What is that? It’s that she’s going to be skinny and even more beautiful come summer. 2015 is so the year of CJaneRun. We are all so proud of her and love having her positive, stick with it attitude here at camp.
I don’t know if I had told you this, but her first month with us, she totally didn’t think this was going to work for her. Man, was she wrong. Actually, here’s what she has to say about that:I was nervous about this program in the beginning because I was always a low carb girl. When you do low carb, fruit is as bad as cake, it’s the devil, lol! So in the last ten years I rarely ate fruit. Then when I joined rfbc, I kept thinking, how can this work?? To tell you the truth, I don’t care how it works anymore, it just does, amazingly!
Changes in mindset- I think I have always blamed someone else for my weight issues, or at least blamed something else, like moving was hard and depressing, my mom, my husband put too much pressure on me……..Now though I can see it is only me that makes me fat or thin. No one opens my mouth and inserts food but me! I feel enabled to control myself, not just let fat happen, but to be in control. this is a huge breakthrough because so often I would feel I need a reward, or just this once(5xs a week) I can splurge. Now I feel like I am rewarding myself by not eating because I am looking and feeling better.
Breakthrough 2- I was tasting life and not really living life. Social events were eat feats, vacations were culinary experiences. Since RFBC what I can eat is less important than what I can do! Lately I’ve been LIVING- going to do things, not going to eat things. Turns out a lot of my friends would rather go bowling than go to a restaurant anyway and we have so much fun being active.
Breakthrough 3-friends not food. I think I posted this proverb before-“better is a dish of vegetables where there is love than a fattened bull where there is hatred. It’s the people that make life good, and as long as I focus on the people, what we eat or don’t eat doesn’t matter!What matters is feeling good, enjoying life, I want to be like the ladies here, walking marathons at 63, and doing obstacle challenge races!I am so truly grateful for this group, and I feel like a completely different person than I was less than two months ago.

Erica Hits 40 lbs Gone in 8 Weeks!
If Erica was doing our 100 lb Challenge, she’s be right on track for it. But she doesn’t have quite that much to lose. She’ll make the 50 lb challenge for sure.
Like so many before here, even with 40 lbs gone, she has a hard time seeing it, so today while we celebrated her before and afters at camp, she was able to see through our eyes just how successful she’s been.
Erica, Sunny and CJaneRun head up our 2nd Rawk Starz Diva group. They are leading the way for our newbies, offering motivation and inspiration. 8 Weeks. 40 lbs gone. You’ve got to admit, that’s impressive. Congratulations, Erica. We are all very proud of you and love what you bring to camp each day.
It hasn’t been all roses for Erica. She has struggled, but she has always looked at what it she really wants. To be an active, healthy mom. She’s changing before our eyes and inspiring all of us with her insistent determination to always give her best effort. We love having her on our Rawk Starz Diva team.

- Polly’s 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks Before and Afters November 26, 2014
Polly’s 40 lbs Gone in 7 Weeks Before and Afters
Okay, so here is the thing about Polly. She’s doing our Wholy Rawkers diet!! I know, I know, 40 lbs in 7 Weeks! That’s crazy on a half raw diet. Yes, we work with calories. 1200 calories a day, but it seems our 1200 Rawk Starz calories give faster loss than 1200 calories with cooked food. Whether you want to believe this or not, 9 years of testing has proven to us that not all calories are burned the same. Then comes Polly, and throws all that data to the wind and surpasses even our Rawk Starz expectations.
Her Wholy Rawker diet is spot on, her walking always there. She has been perfect to her plan since day one. She has no doubts she wants this, no doubts she can do this. She came, and she will conquer.
Polly is a shiny voice in our conversation threads. I think even she is in awe of her great success. When she joined, she knew she would do the Wholy Rawker diet, so didn’t sign up for the 50 lb Challenge. After she graciously offered to show her face to give you our readers another opportunity to watch her journey, I offered her the challenge, and she is taking it.
Polly will hit 50 lbs gone long before the 12 weeks it takes to win the challenge. Everyone at camp is watching her and feeling inspired and motivated to stay to their plan regardless if it’s the Rawk Starz, Butt Kicker or Wholy Rawker plan. She is living proof. Trust the process, do the work, and reap the rewards.
Great job, Polly.
- Huppicke’s 40 lbs Gone Before and Afters November 26, 2014
Huppicke’s 40 lbs Gone in 3 Months Before and Afters
Huppicke hit 40 lbs gone Monday morning. We are all so excited for her. She’s had some challenges this past month; party after party, it seemed. Each time before the event, she was scared, scared of her own ability to survive the event. She would write to me all nervous, sure the event was beyond her, and then the morning after, she would come back and say, it was hard, she was tempted, but she made it. She always made it.
I told her this morning, she’s my hero. Her insecurities about her ability to do this, and whether or not she deserves to have this wonderful change in her life seem so daunting, but with a little hand holding, she stands firm, against herself. And as all of you know, we are our worst enemies when it comes to succeeding with weight loss.
Not only does Huppicke support herself, but she is a strong, supportive member of our team. She is a bright spot for everyone, and we all love having her at camp.
Huppicke is from Germany. Special thanks, Huppicke, for supporting our newest European from Hungary who does not speak, read or write English. Huppicke went out of her way to ensure Rincike felt welcome and found her way around camp from a peer point of view.

Right when Krinkels hit her goal weight, like a month ago, she hurt her back, so we have postponed posting her before and afters, but here they are. Krinkels was our first new OverWeight member to hit goal with 31 pounds gone. We are all very proud of her, not just for hitting goal, but while dealing with a very painful back situation, she did not run back to food, she kept to her plan and maintained her loss, and as of last Friday had lost that extra pound putting her in the 140’s. For her height, you know that’s awesome!
Congratulations Krinkels. You are a real asset to our Overweight team at camp!
Krinkles offered to show her face. You don’t have to do that unless you do our 100 lb challenge.
Krinkles is a Group Only member who did our Rawk Starz Diet with an average of 1 hour of walking a day (before her injury)

RawVee’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters
RawVee’s 25 lbs gone before and afters are one of the most striking differences I have seen for 25 lbs on the obese side of camp. It shows everywhere. Congratulations, RawVee.
RawVee is from Nigeria, so her diet has had limits. She can’t get hemp or chia so finding the right fat/protein mix has been a challenge. We are still working on it. For a week she suffered from Malaria and for another she had to deal with family issues beyond what most of us ever have to endure, and yet, she stayed in contact with me, worked her diet as best she could, and walked when she was able. Talk about stoic.
It took her 7 weeks to lose these 25 lbs. With all that went on since she joined, she still did this in 7 weeks. She is one strong woman. One determined woman to change her life around. I am so proud of her. She is a member of our Rawk Starz Divas and is always right on task. Way to go, RawVee.
Note: RawVee does not own pants. She is the only exception to the no skirt rule.

IslandGirl’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters
IslandGirl is from the Caymen Islands. Life is much different there, the fruits are different, but the desire to be slim and healthy is always the same.
There are her first 25 lbs gone before and afters. her goal ones will follow soon, I’m sure. For those in our Over Weight side of camp, goal come fast, but the struggle are the same, the lessons needed to learn are the same. Maintenance is the same. These women work as hard, just not for as long, so we give them the homage they deserve and celebrate their victories with as much enthusiasm and pride as we do those on our obese side of camp.
IslandGirl hit 25 lbs on her 2 month anniversary, had a little fall, got back up and at 2.5 months is all the way here! She’s about done, now for the hard part, making the things she’s learning at camp stick so she is this thin for life!

CJaneRun’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters
CJaneRun is one of our up and coming Rawk Starz Divas. She drop these first 25 lbs in 4 weeks, 2 days and is on her way to officially making it into our 100 lb Challenge and winning our 50 lb challenge.
CJaneRun came to camp and at first was a little discouraged with how fast the weight was dropping, but now that she has done what so many hope to do, she is feeling pretty good about things. Although one of our newest members, she is a strong voice at camp and works closely with our other new Rawk Starz Divas so they all stay on track and reach their goals.

Okay, it took 4 weeks and 2 days! But who’s counting?
Erica is here to get this done. This is her first before and after on her journey to win the 50 lb challenges. She’s got what it takes to do this. She started camp ready to go. Rawk Starz diet and 2 hours of walking. Only 4 weeks in and she’s already seen as a rock and leader by the rest of our new Rawk Starz Diva team. We’re taking her all the way to goal!

- MichelleLeanne hits 25 lbs Gone! November 6, 2014
MichelleLeanne hits 25 lbs Gone!
Looking at these B&As, it’s hard to believe she could lose any more weight, but she wants to lose 7 more pounds before goal. She promises to not wear such baggy pants for her goal photos! She is wearing the same pair of jeans in each photo.
MichelleLeanne is in our Overweight group. You may have guessed that, right. She had a lot to get through since she joined camp. Coming from an area in New Zealand that had been devastated by earthquakes a year or so back, she has been living in a caravan as she helped with rebuilding. Internet was sketchy and outright down at times, there was over a week where we didn’t hear from her at all. But she didn’t give up on us or her. In seven weeks she went from squishy, as she liked to call it, to dance ready! She is liking how she looks. To me that is even better than goal!

RudyM’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters
Wow, I was amazed at the big change in Rudy with her first 25 lbs gone. Normally, there isn’t a huge difference, but check out her side and back photos. The fat has melted from her midde. I can speak for all of us when we say, losing that belly is a big incentive for keeping going. Congrats Rudy. You are doing great.

- SuperHarman’s 25 lbs Gone B&A June 21, 2014
SuperHarman’s 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters
SuperHarman has decided that after getting these first 25 lbs gone, she wants to challenge herself to 50 lbs gone in the next 12 weeks, so keep your eye out for her 50 lbs gone in the next 6 weeks and 75 lbs gone by the end of 12. Very exciting. She had an injury that slowed her down in May, and had to do chair cardio to keep losing. Now that her injury is healed, she is ready to take this on and get it done!

- SlashGirl’s First 25 lbs Gone Before and Afters April 10, 2014
SlashGirl Earns 25 lb Incentive Chip in 3 weeks at RFBC
SlashGirl hit 25 lbs Gone last Monday with her 100 lb Challenger teammate HealthyMom. Her official 4 weeks isn’t until next Monday, and as of yesterday, Wednesday she was already at 27 lbs gone. I won’t be surprised to see 30 gone for her first 4 weeks. This is very exciting. I love having 100 lb Challengers. Think of it, not even 4 weeks, and she has already lost a quarter of the weight she needs to win the challenge, and the way she is going, I have no doubts. Big congrats, SlashGirl, show them how this is done!
