WOD 02-28-3014

Sorry for the delay in announcing the winners for the 21 Day Sugar Detox Challenge. We had a hard time choosing a winner. In the end, we narrowed it down to 2 final contestants who both had such great results and commitment during the challenge that we decided to declare a tie. So…congratulations to Daron Drew & Brian Cauble! We are so proud of both of you! As you all remember, there was a major ice storm during our 21DSD which forced many of us off our plan. Daron was stranded at her parents house, but walked in the snow to the store so she could buy 21DSD approved food. Brian did not eat for 9 hours while he was stranded waiting for a ride. Their commitment is impressive!

Their results are equally impressive. Daron lost 18 pounds over the 21 days and made major changes in her diet and her lifestyle. She has continued to eat paleo since the challenge and is learning to cook so many new recipes. What I love about Daron is that she comes to me with questions and she actually listens and follows my nutrition advice even when it’s not the answer she wants to hear!

Brian lost over 11 lbs during the challenge and is back to his high school waist size, despite welcoming a new baby into their family during this time. That is dedication! Brian told us his key to success was planning, which I completely agree with. “Willpower + Planning + Preparation is what it really took to make it.  I cooked and shopped each weekend to be ready for the next week.  I learned that you need to give yourself every chance to succeed by eliminating or minimizing temptations.  Finally, I learned that I really enjoy making my own sauces and dressings and they are better than store bought.”

Congrats to both of you! We are so happy for your success!
