❤️Thoughts From Jen As We Chatted About Her Journey:
🌟 I keep my prep very similar. I don’t change it up a lot. I love my overnight oats or the oatmeal pancakes for breakfast w/ fruit. Snack is a protein shake with spinach Lunch is a massive spinach salad with a protein and additional toasted veggies- and always my 7 tomatoes! Dinner is another salad with a heavier protein and snack is typically the protein balls.
🌟 I don’t think there is anyone who has had success on this plan has regretted it in any way, shape or form.

🌟 I’ve found my voice and the strength to actually say what I feel vs. bottling it up and letting it eat at me.
🌟 I have become way more reflective of what is important and what is not.
🌟 The funny thing is I don’t exercise! I walk during my lunch hour but that’s it- it’s all diet
🌟I sincerely feel that what has helped me stay on track with the Challenge Plan was that it took about 6 months to lose the 30-32 lbs. In that 6 months, I really learned how to eat which I don’t think would have happened if say I did a fad diet and lost it super quick. The weekly commitment to prepping and planning is what changed this from a “diet” to a change in my lifestyle.
