16 Sep Jennifer Lynch Testimonial
When I first moved to Charlotte from Florida in 2007, I was 175 pounds. I wasn’t used to that size…. I was an athlete who ate well and exercised often (prior to the move – I was 150 lbs.)
I blame the constant eating out and wine (which was usually at least a glass a night). When I had my son in 2010, I ballooned to 250 lbs. Yes – 250 lbs. I’ll blame that on the ‘eating for two’ excuse. Double the milkshake, double the pizza, double the burgers.
Then I decided I needed to turn my life around and get back to the ‘old Jen’. When my son was five months, I went to my first Carolina Adventure Boot Camp with Kim. At that time I lost some of the baby weight (I was 195 lbs), ‘ran’ a mile in 12:53 and could barely do a sit-up. After the first month of boot camp, I noticed the inches and weight falling off. I started to eat healthy again. My clothes were falling off. I was getting old Jen back. I continued working out with Kim, running more 5Ks and signing up for triathlons.
My first year with Carolina Adventure Boot Camp was astonishing:
Since then, I have completed in several triathlons, a half marathon, 3-race in 3-day events, and the 24 Hours of Booty (in which I have ridden 100+ miles in a 24 hour period). I have changed my eating habits to a ‘clean’ eating habit and have decreased both my meal portions and processed food intake.
As of November 2014, I am 143 lbs and getting stronger and faster. I owe Kim for helping me find the ‘old Jen’.
