I am very excited to share the New Year’s Transformation Challenge Finalists with you!
Take some time to meet these amazing women and see the results – both inside and out – that each were able to achieve in just 12 weeks.
What made this challenge unique is that each FYM chose her OWN theme.
Rather than share a long list of resolutions – which tend to be areas viewed as problems – these women were open to a new, more positive approach. Similar to the “My One Word” experiment, during this challenge the long list of changes were dumped. They instead picked ONE WORD – or even 2 or 3 Words – in order to get clarity on big plans & goals by narrowing them down into a single focus.
The purpose was to make this challenge FUN and help these ladies Maximize 2014 – Making it the BEST Year YET….for real this time!
Just over 200 women took part in a 12 Week series of thoughtfully plotted weekly assignments & Live Weekly Video Meet Ups for extra accountability and motivation. Each assignment was designed to challenge the way they think, move and nourish their bodies.
There about 50 amazing final transformations essays submitted, so to narrow it down to just 6 was quite difficult.
Celebrating Busy Mom Heidi Z. and her post baby body results!
What does FYM mean to mean to me?
Where to start…
I was so excited to find out we were pregnant!! I was so ready to be a mom! But I had a fear that I’d never been able to shake: loosing the baby weight. I’ve seen so many women try so many things to try to get if off.
This has been one Eventful Week …well more like two Months!!!
With several birthdays, a wrap up of the 10 Week Fall Transformation Challenge and the Kick off of FYM’s 6 Year Anniversary.…so much celebrating to be done – much of which has taken place behind the scenes in the forums of ClubFYM.
This is why I’d like to extend the Anniversary Celebration & Contest to the blog!
“This was so awesome! I had the majority of my Summer Challenge Results take place over the TT12!!!”
This is what the moms are saying after taking part in the Tighter Tummy in 12 Days mini challenge in the forums at ClubFYM.
This was a fun mini challenged created to help boost fat loss and tummy flattening results as the FYMs wrapped up the 6 Week Summer Slim Down Challenge and it is much loved for it focuses in on the area we as moms want to see change the most….THE MOMMY BELLY!
This is why I provided the opportunity for moms to submit a photo on the FYM Facebook Page that best represented what being strong mean to them along with a few words sharing how strength has positively impacted their lives.
Here is the compilation of all the “I am a Mom & I am Strong” entries. My hopes are that these featured stories not only provide motivation and inspiration, but also help to open women’s eyes to the potential they have when goals are focused around improving strength.
It is hard for me to describe the amazing changes in my life in the past 10 months. I have dedicated myself to a new way of thinking about food, a new way of thinking about exercise and a new way of thinking about my body.
Since the end of 2011, I have lost over 30 pounds of fat and more than 20 total inches!!
I found Fit Yummy Mummy in the middle of the night during a moment of desperation.
I was 8 weeks postpartum with my 4th and final child and had been given clearance to resume normal activity. I was surfing the net while nursing and came across what seemed like a “too good to be true” add for the Deluxe Pack Busy Mom Workouts.
It was late. I was tired. I didn’t want to be in the shape I was any longer.
