Trading the Drive-Thru for a New Lease on Life

Two years ago Andrea Fowler was 259 pounds and fed up. She was fed up with her weight, fed up with her unhealthy lifestyle, and determined to make a change. “I wanted to finally feel good about myself and become healthy,” she said.

After several failed diets and weight loss programs, Andrea decided to enter a 20-week weight loss competition and truly give it everything she had, and that made all the difference. “I finally made a commitment to a healthy lifestyle forever,” said Andrea. Her complete submersion into a healthy lifestyle led to an incredible 102-pound weight loss, dropping to 157 pounds.

Losing 102 pounds doesn’t just happen with a snap of the finger. Andrea went from never working out to working out two-and-a-half hours a day. Her diet changed from fast food once or twice a day to prepping every single meal with lean proteins and green veggies, along with a gallon of water a day. “I wanted to succeed in this contest just as bad as I could breathe,” she said.

Since then, Andrea has made being healthy and fit a large part of her life. She now trains hard to crush Rugged Maniac and other races, and takes pride in helping others like herself through their own weight-loss journey. Andrea’s advice to those with similar health aspirations? “Nothing is impossible with discipline, consistency, and dedication. Set a goal and reach high for results. It’s not easy but it’s SO worth it.”
