I wanted to know how to lose weight and keep it off.”Fayson said she has given up sodas, potatoes, rice, bread and fried foods.“The hardest thing for me to give up was sodas,” she said. “But, I’ve gotten used to drinking water instead and I don’t miss the sodas as much.”Fayson is also more active and has enrolled in a Zumba class.“I’m going to the gym and working out on the machines,” she said. “It was great to win the challenge but this is just the beginning for me. I’m going to keep eating healthy and I’m going to stay active because I’m in this for the long term.”Sneed will offer another 21 Day Challenge along with a 5K run.

Book Nook to reopen Print Article “We had 40 people participate in the challenge and together they lost 340 pounds,” Sneed said. “The idea for the 21 Day Challenge was to get people to buy into a healthier living lifestyle, a lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise that they can maintain for 30 years or more.”Sneed said losing weight almost overnight is not a healthy way and does little to nothing to encourage healthy eating.“To lose weight and then maintain that weight, you need to lose the weight gradually. You need to lose one pound at a time, he said. “Healthy eating has to become a habit. You also have to have a workout plan and stay active. That’s the way you need to lose weight and how you can keep it off.”Fayson said she didn’t go into the challenge expecting to lose a huge amount of weight.
