Lean Eating: Our latest $50,000 prize winners


Share

Last week, Lean Eating coaches Krista Schaus and Jason Bonn criss-crossed the continent to surprise the grand prize winners from our last Lean Eating Coaching Program with two large $10,000 checks.

Check out the video below to meet our latest prize winners — and see us catch them off guard with oversized novelty checks at home and at work:

Lean Eating coaches Jason and Krista surprise our winners with $10,000 checks.

And there’s more: we gave away $50,000 in prize money to over 40 clients in the last round alone. (Scroll down for the “View runners up and honorable mentions” link to see their transformations.) By the way, that’s just part of the over $100,000 in prize money PN gave away to clients this year. And tomorrow? Well, we’ve got an announcement for you — we’re upping the stakes. More on that in a sec.

People, you’re making this very difficult for us.

First, I’ve gotta say: this choice was really, really tough. The last round of Lean Eating produced some of the most outstanding transformations – physical and lifestyle transformations – I’ve seen in my entire life. We spent months painstakingly going through all of our finalists’ data, listening to the PN community, and scheduling long meetings with the PN Team.

(Our criteria for choosing were measurement data, participation data, client attitude, coach feedback, community voting, and in-house voting by the PN team as well.)

In the end, although we had dozens of potential winners, we had to choose. There could only be two.

Toni’s experience in the Lean Eating Coaching program

I think that I will be processing my LE journey for a long time to come. Throughout my life I have drifted towards a healthy lifestyle and then back away from it. It was like I was always flirting with the idea of making the real commitment to change, to make a stand and say this is who I am, who I want to be, who I want the world to know me as.

This is the first time I feel like I have truly made an internal shift. When I began this journey almost one year ago, I felt defeated, claustrophobic, and in some ways stuck in my current physical and mental state of being. I knew that I needed something to jump-start a true change in the way that I was living. At that time I had been lurking on the PN forums for about a year and a half, too long really!

So I made the choice that changed my defeated attitude to the one where I feel capable of tackling challenges as they come, and even seeking out a few of my own. Truly, I have learned so many things about myself and my approach to life in the program.

In particular, I learned about self forgiveness. Perfection is not achievable. It’s an unrealistic goal that used to leave me paralyzed into inactivity. Now I am much better at getting done what can get done and moving on.

One of my favorite lessons is “What are you going to do in the next three minutes to move you toward your goal?” Some days this means just adding an extra cup of spinach to my meal to make sure that I am getting in an extra serving of veggies. And some-days it just means getting down for 20 quick push-ups. As long as the next three minutes get me closer to my goal.

I use this in other areas of my life now too. It helps me break up the house cleaning instead of putting it off. I do what I can in the next three minutes before deciding what to do next.

Even my marriage has become better throughout the year. My husband and I now have a common goal around creating an environment in our home that reflects and supports our active lifestyle.

Of course, I still have my days where I feel frustrated and overwhelmed. But they come farther apart these days, thanks to what I learned in the program. I’m 40 pounds leaner, but definitely not meaner.

David’s experience in the Lean Eating Coaching program

The mental shift that I have experienced during the past year of LE is phenomenal. My relationship with food has changed. I am not dieting. This is the way I am choosing to live my life.

I think for me the biggest benefit of this past year has been the mental aspect of the program. I have always been told that it’s OK to be big. I was an offensive lineman so being a big guy was an essential part of the job. I am not that same guy anymore. I want to be lean and fit for the rest of my life. The Lean Eating program has helped me to make tremendous strides in obtaining that goal.

There were some difficult times throughout the year, all ranging from family members not being supportive and becoming frustrated, to self doubt. The whole range of emotions came into play at one time or another during the course of the year.

With the help of my coach (Jay Bonn) and the LE assignments I was able to identify them and work through them without turning to food. The issue that I had with regard to my weight was a mental one. The Lean Eating program helped me identify that. It has given me the tools to get over those obstacles.

What I learned is that there will be ups and downs along the way. This is a marathon, not a sprint. Lasting change takes time, I did not get fat overnight so my journey to the lean and fit body that I will have will not occur overnight as well.

These are but a small portion of my experiences of the past year of Lean Eating. I cannot wait to see what the next year has to offer!
