Lose 7 lbs by Thanksgiving? Try 22!

Hi there: Before I get to today’s email I want to let you know we’ve made a few changes on our website. In addition to a bit of a re-design the major change is that we’ve switched it over to a wordpress blog. What does this mean for you? Well, now you get to have your say. You can go to the site every time I post an article and leave some feedback. You can ask a question. Or you can present an alternate argument to a question. Maybe you’re an expert in a particular field and have info that really would benefit the people reading these emails. Case in point when I wrote about celiac disease you replied to me with some excellent resources and info that I had to pass on to others.

And so I really encourage you to go over to the site and post a comment, a question or whatever’s on your mind. From time to time I’ll reward those who post with meal plans, training programs and other freebies.

So go take a look, let me know what you think and make okanaganpeakperformance.com your home for health, fitness and performance.

Now on to the article.

A while back I put a challenge out to you. I challenged you to lose 7 lbs by Thanksgiving. And we gave you the tools of how to make this a reality.

And you responded. Big time.

But one of you didn’t stop at 7 lbs. Or at 10 lbs, 15 lbs or even 20 lbs. Annette Welke has managed to drop 22 lbs and is on track for more!

Read on to see what Annette did to achieve this incredible result.

Hi Chris!

Since I have started working with you (almost 4 years!) I have seen my weight go up and down, with nobody to blame but myself. I have always been steady with my gains on a fitness level (thanks to you), which made me very happy, but always fell off the wagon with my eating habits.

Since heart disease runs in my family, I figured that now was the time for me to really take things into my own hands….I cut out ALL carbs, dairy, sugar and processed foods. Toughest thing I have ever done! After 2 months, I am down 22 lbs! I am just now starting to add some things back into my diet.

I certainly feel better! And according to my hubby I have even stopped snoring…yahoo!

So to sum it up….

Pounds lost : 22
Down: 2 pant sizes and 2 shirt sizes
Fitness level: ready to get back at it BIG time!
Long term goal: to get to my goal weight of 145 lbs.

Thanks for your continued support Chris (& Alexandra too!)..attached are a before and after photo.

Warm Regards,


Way to go Annette! We’re all very proud of you and look forward to seeing how far you can go.

All the best.
