Summer Shape Up 2023 Winners!
Our team is continuously impressed by our LSF community. All the women in this community worked their butts off in this challenge and we are so proud of each and every one of you! You all finished this 6-Week Challenge strong which will help to create amazing habits that will last a lifetime. Thank you for pushing yourselves and our community to be the best we can be!
We wanted to bring back the intensity with this challenge- in our workouts, our nutrition, our weekly prizes, and most importantly, our grand prize (a free trip for two to HAWAII)!! We brought back Accountability Groups to connect members with each other & lean on each other for support during the 6 week challenge. We introduced new videos in the MOVE app, all focused on specific areas of the body to really feel that burn. We also re-introduced weekly giveaways for our #teamlsf community who remain the most loyal and supportive fitness community to exist!
Now it’s time to shout out our SSU23 winners! These inspiring women, not only have incredible transformation photos but the most heart warming stories!
6 WEEK TRANSFORMATION | GRAND PRIZE WINNER
Dara B. (dara_lsf_compassionatehouse) – Total pounds lost: 8
“I was so excited for this summer shape up cause it was lining up with me jumping into some new fitness goals. I have been working out pretty consistent, but I wasn’t seeing much change anymore. I was feeling like maybe I will never reach my goals.”
“We started the challenge the day I went to camp…I thought that was gonna be hard. I did pack lots of heathy snacks, and all my LSF nutrition went with me to help temptations go away. Then stared over on the 14 day shape up meal plan to just really detox and help my body after camp. It felt so good! Then for our beach trip a couple weeks ago I looked at the meal plan, and we pack the food for the menu that week.”
“My dad is like how much longer do you have to eat like this. Cause he loves his french fries… and not the sweet potatoes one. I would say “forever” then laugh. I said this is going to continue when the challenge is over. I want this to be a lifestyle. I had my mom and grandma doing the daily 10 every night and eating the meal plans. It was so awesome cause they are both trying to lose weight. It has been so awesome making progress as a family and seeing us get stronger physically but also mentally.”
“I liked accountability groups cause it made it less overwhelming. I would set time aside each day to go through the #teamlsf cause all those smiles and ugh faces lol motived me to keep going, and cheering girls on.”
Natasha P. (@tatatashie)– Total Pounds Lost: 15
“I have always said this is my forever journey and it is, but sometimes we hit a bump in the road and have to patch it and get back on. I was already not feeling like myself from not losing 20 pounds of my weight from having first child, then adding on another 22 pounds I didn’t loose from my second child. Weight is just a number but I was tired everyday and had no energy. I want my minis to see me as a positive role model.”
“When I saw this challenge, I wanted to feel like myself again. I wanted to be happy, feel good in my clothes, and most importantly, take care of my family. I was determined to give myself that self love, because I am a happy person. I am beyond blessed that GOD gave me this beautiful body to move in. I now have the energy to chase my family around and to be the best version of me for me and them. Don’t ever underestimate your mind and body. When I started this challenge, I was wondering how I would do it with two kids. It wasn’t easy at first and there are still hard days but it got to where my little guy loved working out with me every day, and they saw how happy I was becoming back to myself. Building a routine again has made my heart and soul so happy.”
“I have learned that it’s ok to have me time to be the best version of me. I truly believe working out is like medicine. It took away my depression, anxiety, and body aches. I just want to say from the bottom of my heart that I cannot think this community enough for giving me my life back.”
Kim C. (@KKgetfit_LSF)– Total Pounds Lost: 9
“First of all I want to start by saying Summer Shape Up absolutely changed my life. I have done other LSF challenges before but got off track for awhile after my break up and after seeing posts about SSU starting I decided to go for it!”
“This challenge was EVERYTHING that I needed to get back on track with a healthier lifestyle. SSU and Teamlsf motivated me to show up EVERY single day to workout and make a healthier lifestyle. Each day I felt stronger and more motivated to keep up with this new healthy routine that I made for myself. I started working out everyday before work because I knew mentally and physically I would feel better.”
“I ended up loosing 9 pounds from this challenge but the most important change to me is that I not only feel better physically but most of all mentally. I am using the HBMP and The move app to continue this healthy lifestyle even though SSU has ended. I am so thankful for Katie & Teamlsf for everything they did for me during this challenge because I am officially a happier and healthier version of myself thanks to them and SSU!”
Amber O. (@Ambero_LSF)- Total Pounds Lost: 10
“I’ll be 6 months postpartum Sunday 27th and after having my first baby everything was new to me. My body, my emotions, my habits (or lack thereof) and I knew I needed something to give me a push. So, I went to my tried and true LSF where I knew I could make a difference if I really tried. The SSU challenge came at a perfect time as I was feeling a little stuck and self conscious in my new body that I was proud of and ashamed of all in one. Which in return made me feel for shaming a body that just created something incredible. That’s where the negative spiral began. So, SSU comes around and it was perfect. I loved the new accountability guidelines so everyone can really show their hard work and the groups were a fun added bonus!”
“I did my best with my baby and decided it was time to stop making excuses. When she had her first nap, that’s when I would workout and if that fell through, I promised to get it done at night. There was a total of 4 days I took as a complete rest day through the whole challenge. I learned to listen to my body and put my mental health first so the rest would follow. And wow did it ever!! I kept to my routine, followed guidelines of the HBMP, Guiltless Nutrition guide, LSF protein (the best) and of course, encouragement from the wonderful community. These girls are so strong, beautiful, kind and motivating. It’s not often you find that these days (especially online) and I can confidently say I believe that’s how LSF thrives so dang much!! It’s the epitome of women supporting women (plus Ryan+Luke lol) and the word grateful is an understatement.”
“My photos are worth 1000 words to me because I didn’t truly realize my change until I saw them. I didn’t step on the scale at all as that was a demon of my past and I focused on how I felt. Clothes fit better, felt much stronger, my mood was heightened and I was feeling beautiful again. Not because of the image, but because of the transformation within. I’m so proud of how far I’ve come in only 6 weeks and I already can’t wait for the next challenge with everyone. Thank you, thank you for always being my place of comfort and motivation all in one.”
