Alexis is not a prize winner, but she deserves a huge congratulations and a shout out. Alexis has lost 15lbs, 4.2% body fat, 5.5 inches off her waist and 2.5 inches off her hips. When she started the challenge she was on the green band for pull-ups, and last week she did her first unassisted pull-up. During the first week of the challenge I looked over ther journal and she had negative points for chocolate every day! I told her to try to go one week with out cheating at all. From that point forward she didn’t cheat and look at her now!
