Season 4- Amber

Okay guys I an excited to start this season, I think it will be a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to our new rules!

A little about me-

My name is Amber and I came up with the idea for this blog after being inspired by my sisters-in-law. I really liked the idea of being accountable for getting in shape and having a support system in place too. It has been such a blessing to do this blog with all of you, I have not only gotten more fit but have grown closer to all my sisters (who are other contestants on Reasons To Lose). I have found working out has become a great outlet for stress and since starting I have lost weight, dropped a few sizes, toned up and gained a ton of confidence. Last season my motivation wavered a little, I had been getting sick and was dealing with a lot of stress but now I feel good and am really looking forward to jumping head-first into this season!

This season my diet restriction is-


I have a bunch of things planned and recipe ideas, i'm really looking forward to it. I'm not just going to eat fish and avoid meats until the three months are over, I want to incorporate tofu and other substitutes too. I want to make dishes that would normally have meat and then change them to be vegetarian-friendly!

I love how excited you are! Annie's right, you got this! and I think it's great that you aren't just avoiding meat, you're finding substitutes so you can still have the meals you love just minus the meat! I'm sure you'll rock the diet.

Just no more getting sick, got that? You aren't allowed.

About Annie

With everything I am responsible for at home, my ridiculous work schedule and my health problems, it makes it hard to keep working out on the front burner. But when I heard about this blog, I thought 'why not!'. I'm excited to get started and hopefully I won't die of exhaustion when this is all over!

About Helena

I can't fit into my clothes! After getting married and being forced to eat my own cooking, I started gaining weight. The desk job didn't really help. I gained 30 lbs in the past year, and I can really feel it when I try to get dressed in the morning. I am really good at starting diet and exercise programs; but really bad at finishing them. And that's all about to change...
