    Free Hits 110 lbs Gone – Fast Weight Loss with a Raw Food Diet!

    If you recall, Free won our 100 lbs in 7 Months Challenge in March. She’s been taking it slower with these last pounds, which is quite all right, because face it. She’s lost 110 lbs and she has done it in 9 months!

    In a couple of weeks, she is heading off for her grand adventure in Peru. Hiking around the Machu Pichhu ruins and walking all over the place exploring other Inca ruins. How fun!!

    But think. 110 lbs. That’s a small woman. Had she done this last year, it would have been like carrying another person with her the whole time.

    She has been working hard to make sure she’s in shape for the trip. Doing stairs, lots of walking. It’s going to be a grand adventure for sure. We’re already looking forward to some great photos.

    Free’s 100 lbs in 7 Months Winner Photo!

    Free won our 100 lbs in 7 Months Challenge a couple of weeks ago. We are all so proud of her. On her actual challenge end date she was in Cyprus. With her $500 Visa card from RFBC and her passport in hand, in nine short weeks she is off to Machu Picchu (Incan Ruins in Peru) to trek along it’s mountain tops with her friends and new strong fit body.

    What a great way to celebrate such a huge victory.

    Here is her 100 lbs Winner Photo. Soon, when she hits 110 lbs gone, we’ll do a new set of before and afters.

    Congratulations, Free. What a wonderful way to reward yourself!

  • Free Hits 100 lbs Gone in 6.5 Months!! 2015-03-05

    Free Hits 100 lbs Gone in 6.5 Months!!

    Free as in our Rawk Starz Diva who hit 100 lbs gone on Monday. Her photos are below. Be inspired, be in awe. Be motivated. She did this in a little less than 6.5 months. Now, I know, not everyone has the diva mindset or wants to walk 2 hours a day, every day, so don’t let her big success intimidate you. Instead, look at these photos and think about your possibility. Your 100 lbs, even if it’s just 40 or 20. 

    How much or how fast anyone loses doesn’t matter. It’s the effort, that personal best we’ve been talking about at camp, that desire to be here and get this done.
    The possibility of being Free!
    Free100Collage
    Camp is abuzz today over Free’s great transformation. HisTemple wrote that if she didn’t know her, she’d swear the photos were photo shopped. That, I promise, will never happen here.
    As Tess pointed out in today’s all about Free discussion, Free teaches middle school. What an inspiration she is to her students. It is so easy to think tasks in life are overwhelming, that goals are too hard to meet, but then you look up and see your teacher change before your eyes. These children will never forget the example she has set.
    The other day in anticipation of Free’s new before and afters, we talked about the reality of 100 lbs. How much is that really. Many of our women went out to experiment by lifting weights, sacks of dog food and even their dogs. Everyone agreed it was impossible to imagine carrying that weight daily. Some even pointed to family members and said, oh my, she lost the equivalent of my brother or two children!
    Elain’s 105 lb daughter made her pick her up. She said she could barely do it, then added:
    The only person I’ve ever known who accomplished a 100 lb loss did it with bypass surgery and several surgeries for skin removal.  For Free to do this by sheer conviction and being accountable every day elevates us all.  Makes our hopes and dreams somehow possible.  And it’s also motivating to realize that if Free has been carrying around 100 extra lbs, then I’ve also been carrying around the equivalent of my daughter. No wonder I was breathless walking up the stairs!
    We did the discussion on what 100 lbs really is because Free didn’t seem to get what a huge accomplishment this was even though a few days before she had bought jeans five sizes smaller than when she started. Here’s what she wrote in our thread about her 100 lbs near the end of the discussion:
    Carlene has gotten to know me over the past 6 1/2 months, and she knew that she would have to remind me that it truly is an achievement.  On one hand, I never thought I would be able to lose this much weight (I was destined to remain obese, I thought), but on the other hand, it’s easy to think, even now, that I’ve done nothing remarkable (anyone can do this, I’m not special).  

     
    However, I believe I am wrong on both counts.  
     
    1.  I used to think I couldn’t do this until . . . one day, I just believed.  I saw pics of other people doing it–Michelle was my greatest motivator.  I saw her progressing, and I thought, “why not?”  “Why couldn’t I do this thing that I never thought I could do?  Another human being is doing this, so why can’t I?”  So, I started.  
     
    2.  Though I downplay the achievement, I am wrong.  I have done something amazingly remarkable . . . the same thing all of us here are doing in one another’s company. We’re daring to believe that we can lose the weight and then we’re willing to make what we initially think are sacrifices to achieve it.  But then we realize that our choices, though they might be hard, are not really sacrifices because we are receiving so much in return.  We’re finally starting to live the life we have desired–a life free of pain, free of the extra weight, free of the embarrassment, free of the health scares, free of defeat . . .
    We are all so proud of Free. We are inspired by her steadfastness and focus to get this done. Free’s anniversary date for winning the 100 lb challenge is March 18th. She is heading out of the country to visit family and will be gone, so we have pushed her date out to the day she returns or the day after to ensure she stay strong during her vacation and not lose sight of all her hard work. Not that her family will let her when they see how amazing she looks!
    I’d like to share what Krinkels, a maintenance member on our overweight side of camp, had to say to her group after seeing Free’s before and afters:
    I think we all deserve a pat on the back!  Just for signing up to RFBC says that we want to Free ourselves of the misery of wearing a fat suit.  We obviously thought about it and knew we had the courage and strength to make a change.  Now we are here doing it and we are the minority!!!  Most people want to lose the weight and not even think about the emotions and even “exposing” ourselves to women we don’t even know.  That means we have to be accountable to them and also ourselves.  That is a HUGE accomplishment in itself.  Lets honor ourselves today and dig deep to get this done and reap the benefits like Free!!!
    I so agree with Krinkels and Free. It does take courage to do what is being done at RFBC. But as you can see, through Free, it can happen if you are willing to find the courage to change. Thank you Free for leading the way.

  • Free Hits 90 lbs Gone in 5.25 Months 2015-01-26

    Free Hits 90 lbs Gone in 5.25 Months

    Free is right on track to hit her 100 lbs gone and win the 7 month challenge come March 18th. In fact, she will probably hit it in February. She was so excited this weekend. She was so close on Friday. She wrote and told me that on Saturday she would hit the 5 months 5 days it took Michelle to hit 90 and was close. On Sunday, 5 months 6 days she hit it and was thrilled. I think this is the quickest I have ever received her before and afters. 

    That’s what we want. 90 lbs in and still on fire and excited for every pound. Free right now is doing both of our Diva groups. She is with Michelle, Jan et al in their long running Diva group, and joins in our new Diva 2 group to inspire and to stay motivated. Our new divas are loving her.

    Great job, Free. Everyone is cheering you on to hit that 100 lbs gone and win the challenge.

    Free Hits 80 lbs Gone in 4.5 Months

    I had to go back and do the math. 4.5 Months and 80 lbs gone. Wow, talk about fast weight loss.  Free has been on fire since her first day at camp. She is always on plan, always gets her 2 hours in. The diet loves her. The walking loves her, and her Rawk Starz Diva team adore her.

    She’s not one of the chattiest ladies at camp, but she is of the most steadfast and dependable ones. We are all so proud of her. Each set of before afters she looks younger and more beautiful. She is set to win the 100 lbs in 7 Months Challenge on March 18th. That’s a date!

  • Free’s 70 lbs Gone in 16 Weeks Before and Afters 2014-12-08

    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!

    Free’s 60 lbs Gone in 3 Months Before and Afters

    Not only did Free win our 50 lb challenge last month at 9 weeks, she hit 60 lbs gone in 3 months. Awesome!! Free is a perfect diva. She has not broken her food plan or missed one day of her 2 hours of walking since she started with us.

    She is a valued member of our Rawk Starz Diva Challenge group. As you can see by her before and afters, it has really paid off. Check out her face. I keep saying she looks like a teenager now. But she’s not. She has a nine year old son! 

    Talking about her son, when she started RFBC her big dream was to be 50 lbs lighter by her son’s 9th birthday, which happened to coincide with the day she hit 59.8 lbs gone!! What a gift to both of them. If you read her new Journey Page, you’ll see what they did together to celebrate.

    On hitting her 60 lbs gone mark, she is now officially an RFBC Diva with her own journey page and spotlight on our website. Keep your eye on her, she is going to win that 100 lb Challenge in March, but hit that 100 lbs gone mark much sooner. Way to go, Free.

    Free Hits 50 lbs Gone in 9 Weeks and Wins our 50 lb Challenge

    Okay, okay, the 50 lb Challenge is a 12 week challenge. Free decided she’d get there faster. Just 9 weeks. Can you imagine? Like Michelle, Free has been perfect to her plan with both diet and exercise since day one. She has been focused and determined.  When we say Rawk Starz, we’re talking Free all the way!! I am so proud of her.

    Check out these new before and afters! She is looking great. I think even she is in disbelief.

    For winning the 50 lbs in 12 (9) Week Challenge. Free receives 4 free weeks of camp, a $50 coupon off her next membership fees and the ability to earn another 4 free weeks of camp.

    Congratulations, Free!!

    Here is what Free wrote yesterday after we all gushed about how great she is doing and looks! We were talking about the power of her Rawk Starz Diva challenge group:

    When I reached about 20 pounds, I spent some time reading Michelle’s logs and others, and it hit me . . . wait, I could do this too!!  I was so challenged, inspired, and motivated to go and get it for myself.  I am only competing with myself . . . and we all have the same goal.  I have had some zero weight losses, but I learned from those who have been here longer than me that it’s normal and just to move on, so I didn’t think any more about it.  So much of this is in our head and we have to be willing to move ourselves to act and feel beyond what has been normal for us in the fat brain world.  But I keep coming back here for the support–I remember Carlene describing one time that she used to take individual clients, but they would not succeed like us in the group.  And I can believe it.  Carlene, you are amazing, but you know that we need everyone here to make this work.  So thankful that we have this group!!!

  • Free Qualifies for our 100 lbs in 7 Months Challenge with 40 lbs Gone in 8 Weeks 2014-10-10

    Free Qualifies for our 100 lbs in 7 Months Challenge
    with 40 lbs Gone in 8 Weeks

    Free did it! She lost 40 lbs in less than 8 weeks, then took the plunge and took up the 100 lbs in 7 Months Challenge. We are all so excited for her. When I posted her photos to our members at camp yesterday, they all commented on her healthy looking smile and the big changes in her body. Free, herself, is still seeing obese, but that’s how it goes. It takes the brain a little longer than the body to see the differences.

    As a group we are very excited to see Free decide to take on this challenge. She has the perfect, no worries attitude to succeed. She doesn’t stress over what she doesn’t get to eat or why she has to walk, she just gets up every morning and gets it done. She is following step by step behind Michelle. Expect the same great success!

    Free Hits 25 lbs Gone in 3 Weeks

    Yup, that does say 3 weeks. I think even she was stunned by this. Today, she wrote and told me that she spent an hour reading through Michelle’s log at camp, and it hit her: she can do the same thing! So right she is! She was starting to think 2 hours of walking a day was too much, then she saw her before and afters, Michelle’s log, and decided 2 hours a day was just perfect! 🙂 Congrats Free, you are on our way to qualifying for our 100 lbs in 7 Month’s Challenge.
