2017 Region 1 Winner: Jennifer Lohmer
My name is Jen. I am thirty-six years old and mother to one very sweet, very active five year old boy. I am also a special education teacher. Between home and school, I have very little time for exercise. When I get stressed, I tend to reach for caffeine and convenience foods to get my energy up. When my son was born, I was 37 pounds over weight and I needed to get back in shape. The No Excuse Mom’s group has helped me to find time for exercise without taking time away from being with my son. My son and I joined the local No Excuse Mom’s group when he was a toddler so that I could get in some exercise while he was playing with kids his own age. They taught me that I do not need to be at the gym to get a good workout. Over the years, I have managed to lose most of the weight but I struggle to keep it off. During times of stress, I still reach for the unhealthy sugary foods and lots of caffeine.
During the twelve week challenge, I made a commitment to getting the weight back off and keeping it off. Over the past twelve weeks I have managed to lose fifteen pounds and keep it off. I have worked hard to stop eating so many sugary foods and drinking lots of iced coffee to get quick energy. As this challenge ends, I continue to work on self-improvement so that I can continue to keep off the weight and be a better example of health for my son. The twelve weeks was just the start of focusing on improving my health and keeping the weight off.
