Hot Springs Trio Loses 35 Pounds

hswlcaCheck out the journey in the Go! Weight Loss Challenge for CHI St. Vincent co-workers Trish Nicholas, Kathy Rynders and Rachael Stauder.

“We’re not there yet, but between us we lost 35 pounds,” they wrote. “We began an exercise program, and used the MyFitnessPal app to count calories. I realized that I had no idea how many calories I had been eating even when I thought that I was being healthy! The biggest help was losing with friends-being accountable to one another and encouraging each other. We were open with our food diaries and weights, and picked each other up when we were feeling weak:) We hope by summer to achieve the ‘after’ picture that is our goal. Thank you for getting us started, and cheering us along the way!

Don’t forget the maintenance weigh-in April 13 for those participating in the challenge.
