When I first started my Thrive Challenge, I was motivated to get in better shape for my sister’s 21st birthday. I had been doing the keto diet previously and used my Thrive Challenge to push myself to lose more weight. Since then, I have accomplished so much! I cook all my meals and pack my lunches every day and I share recipes with my associates. I even post time-lapse cooking videos on my social media. Along with meal prepping, I also do a daily dance workout at home. I’ve lost 44 pounds since January!

  • I have opened a savings account and saved $2,000 for a new home.
  • I drink about one gallon of water a day. 
  • Since starting the Thrive Challenge, I’ve lost almost 50 pounds!

All of my friends and family have noticed so many positive changes in me. I really enjoy sharing my Challenge experience with them. To me, that is what Thrive Challenge is all about — it is a support group I didn’t know I needed. It helps you learn and grow while trying new tips and Better Choices for a healthier life. Most importantly, it allows me to stay motivated, and motivate those around me, even if it is just one small change at a time.
