At the beginning of January, we announced our second 12-Week Transformation Contest, and once again, we were absolutely blown away by the response and the results of the participants. Just like our previous Challenges (you can see some of the most outstanding transformations here and here), the competitors made some astonishing progress.
When all was said and done, over $50,000 in cash and prizes was awarded to the winners throughout the contest. The results were fantastic, and it was a daunting task to choose “winners” from this inspiring group of participants. With that said, take a look at just a sampling of the awesome transformations that some of the wonderful women made.
Grand Prize Winner: Kathie Mackenzie (50)
Since Kathie commenced her body transformation journey, she has shed a jaw-dropping 33.5 pounds and 40 inches! What’s more, she’s added shapely, toned muscle mass and dropped a total of 10 sizes—she’s now a size 2! Kathie’s blood pressure has normalized and her energy levels are fantastic. She’s a new person and she’s as confident as ever. Her progress has been so inspiring and her dedication to health and fitness so in-depth, Kathie has become a mentor to many friends who have also embarked on their own transformations.
She said it: “I have never been this healthy before in my life. I also inadvertently became an inspiration for a number of friends. They were encouraged by the changes they saw in me and started to eat better and work out.”
First Runner Up: Judi Tanner (41)
As if being a mother to four beautiful children wasn’t enough of a feat, Judi took on the BioTrust Transformation Challenge and lost 20 pounds and 13 inches, and went from a size 6 to a size 0 in pants and from a size medium to a size extra-small in tops! But those numbers only tell part of the story, as Judi is now feeling stronger, healthier, leaner, and happier than she’s ever felt in her entire life. For Judi, the journey has not only been physical, as she’s also been fortified mentally and spiritually, and she has a newfound self-confidence and belief in herself and her life. This is the best version of Judi there’s ever been!
She said it: “I can’t thank you, Joel and Josh, enough for giving me the confidence to go out and conquer the world! I can do anything now and be ever-so-proud of who I am and where I have come from. Life is beautiful and I am so grateful for all that has been given to me.”
Second Runner Up: Lori Argumedo (32)
Seven weeks after having her second child, Lori accepted the Challenge. Fed up with her lack of energy and her increasing body weight, Lori took matters into her own hands and lost a whopping 25 pounds, 6 inches from her waist, and another 6 inches from her hips! But Lori’s not done yet. Being an athlete all her life, she is working toward getting back into the boxing ring to compete again. She’s already improving her fitness dramatically, and we can’t wait to hear them call out Lori’s name when they say, “Let’s get ready to rumble!”
She said it: “I feel good and look great! My kids are my biggest motivators, and I want to be healthy for them.”
BioTrust Supplements: BioTrust Low Carb, BellyTrim XP
Special Honorable Mention: Joan Barnette (51)
Astounded by her own progress—as were we—Joan lost an incredible 30 pounds and 33.5 inches! What’s more, Joan dropped 10 clothes sizes. Perhaps most importantly, Joan has been able to significantly improve several critical markers of health, as her blood pressure and blood sugar levels are the lowest they have been in 30 years! She managed to boost her “good” cholesterol to boot! Her energy levels are through the roof and her strength and flexibility are at unprecedented levels. To say that this Challenge has been a game-changer for Joan would be nominated as the understatement of the year.
She said it: “I actually like my body again! I have come such a long way! I can see pieces of the confident, fit woman I used to be, appearing little by little. It has been such an amazing journey, and I look forward to saying good-bye to the next 40 pounds.”
Special Honorable Mention: Diana Rapallo (57)
This Challenge has been a life-changing experience for Diana. Through her hard work and dedication, she’s dramatically improved her overall health and outlook on life. With the consent of her physician, she’s been cleared to stop using her inhaler and come off of most medications. Diana’s transformation is nothing short of amazing, as she lost a jaw-dropping 31 inches and nearly 20 pounds! Diana dropped 2 dress sizes and went from a size XL to a loose-fitting size small. Despite previously battling constant fatigue, Diana’s so full of energy she can barely sit still!
She said it: “I feel great about my new and improved body now! I just hated being so big and unattractive. I have just had so many positive results in every way, making me feel much healthier and active. I feel like a new woman!”
Please join us in congratulating these beautiful and inspiring women—and all of the Challenge participants—on their outstanding transformations. They sure do have a lot to be proud of, and we couldn’t be more proud of them ourselves!
