KahlbaughMeet our 2015 Biggest Winner: Karin Kahlbaugh

For several years I watched the Biggest Loser competition on television.  From the comfort of my couch, I wished I could work out like the TV competitors, finally get a handle on my eating habits, and lose weight.  As a married 47-year-old with two children and a full-time job, I didn’t feel I had the time (or the energy) to do what I knew was necessary.  When the competition was announced I made the decision to make the commitment – no more excuses.  The required 10 hours of exercise per week was quite a challenge to fit into my schedule.  But I loved the Zumba, boot camp and liquid asset swim classes.  Following the recommendation of our trainer, John Marconi, I avoided processed foods and was sure to eat breakfast (usually a hardboiled egg) each day.  In the beginning, I never expected that I would lose 21 pounds in six weeks and be the winner.

It was great to meet and get to know  other members and instructors.  I now look forward to going to the YWCA. I hope that there is another competition to benefit other members…and help others to get off the couch.
