SSS 2012 Finalist – Jenny B of NE

I am so VERY proud of Jenny for “finding herself” again through BuffMother.  She over came her Mommy guilt and overcame her fear of the “meat heads” in the weight room.  I’m very impressed with how 7 pounds of weight loss transformed her!! Way to go Jenny~ I expect your fitness future to bring many more successes!!

Name: Jenny B of NE
Number of children: 1

Why did you enter the “SuperSTAR Success” contest by BuffMother?  I wanted to challenge myself and learn more healthy ways to attain my fitness goals. I also wanted the extra guidance that I got from the Youtube videos, emails, journal, Rally Room and fellow BuffMothers.

What tactics did you use to stay focused and engaged for the entire 70 days?  I really utilized the Rally Room for support, I also used my husband because he also helped keep me accountable, watching the YouTube videos, journaling as well as continuing to reference “Hormonal Timing” book. All of these together helped me keep my focus.

How do you feel about your success?  I am very happy with my results and excited to see how I will look and feel months from now after continuing to live a healthy lifestyle.

What obstacles did you have to overcome in order to attain your goals?  Some of the obstacles I had to overcome were to fit working out into my already busy schedule, having “mommy guilt” after leaving my daughter to go to the gym to workout, eating healthy and prepping meals. It took me some time to figure out the meal prepping thing.  I also had to overcome the “haters” and being criticized for what I was trying to accomplish.  Another big one was using the weight room at the gym and not feeling intimidated by the equipment as well as the “meat heads”.

What would you like to tell the world about BuffMother ?  I was able to find myself again through BuffMother.  The knowledge I gained about eating, hormones, and workouts will stay with me for years.  I met some great friends through the Rally Room, which I found to be a very safe place for me to express my feelings and share my successes as well as struggles. I wish every woman wanting to learn and make changes could be a part of the BuffMother community.
