It was Easter Sunday last year and I just sat there. I didn’t participate in the activities with my family because I was so blah and tired. Then, I thought to myself, “this is ridiculous.” I decided I needed to make a change. I started my ZP Challenge because I was sick and tired of being tired. Now, I’m within five pounds of my original goal to lose 75 pounds! I will not be sad if I lose more weight, but it’s exciting to be so close to hitting this milestone. I’ve gone from a size 18 to a size 8. It’s very exciting that I don’t have to shop in the women’s plus-size section of the store any more. I made better choices like getting to the gym five days a week. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but if I don’t go to the gym, I feel like I’m missing something. ZP Challenge is great for the accountability without negative pressure. With ZP, you never feel guilty or down on yourself. Being reasonable with myself was important to me.

  • I’ve lost 70 pounds and I’m happy with myself again.
  • With ZP, you never beat yourself up.
  • Getting off soda was a really big deal but I did it.
  • People are genuinely happy for you when you’re making great, positive changes.

Simple, better choices like pushing back the plate and getting moving are what’s working for me. I’ve decided that the frst hunger pain I feel does not mean I should eat immediately. It’s OK to be a little bit hungry. I count calories and I don’t eat fast food. I always have salad in the house now. It’s my go-to food. If unexpected guests show up at my house, they are going to get salad for dinner. I travel a lot for work and sometimes I get home too late to cook. If I know I’ve got salad in the house, I’m not tempted to go through the drive-through. With better choices, I have so much more energy. My boys are super active and we play so much more together now. The support from my Walmart family of associates has been overwhelming. Everyone is encouraging and congratulatory. Everything can be a little hard at the beginning, but when you’re making great changes and better choices with ZP Challenge, you can get the results you want.
