Name: Ann
City/State: Davenport,Ia

Why did you apply for the Fitness Challenge?
I have always fought with weight issues, yo-yoing up and down my whole life. My highest weight was 275 and I have been down to 180. Once I get down in weight it seems like no matter what I do to keep it off, I always stray and eat more then go back up. I am sick of it and need some guidance and well as a fun way that could be rewarding in the end! I am a positive strong willed person that is always ready to give it my all!

I am getting married this year and would like to start my new life healthier. I have lost about 30lbs. already and I need guidance to lose the rest. I will be committed to work hard to obtain my goal. I want to be able to completely get off my Diabetes medication. I feel I can reach my goals with the help and guidance of a personal trainer. My fiancée and I are committing to a lifestyle change and we want to succeed.
