This week, our story comes from the next state over...Ohio. Good friend of local CrossFit Fruition owner, Dan Dirkx, this woman has lost over 130 pounds since beginning her journey 2 years ago. I saw Sarah Stalter's photos and asked her story...in her Sarah's words, here it is!
"It all started with Advocare's 24 Day Challenge. I've been obese since I was 6. I had hit a time in my life where I didn't see a future for myself, nor did I want a future. After some internal debates, I realized I had to find something to focus all of my energy on to help pull me out of the black abyss that was my life. I knew food was always on my mind, therefore focusing on what I could and couldn't eat would hopefully distract me enough... and it did. I lost 18lbs in 24 days and from there went on to lost 130 in two years and have kept it off for the last year now. It wasn't until I had got my nutrition under control that i started incorporating exercise into my routine. I'm now incredibly active and a lover of all things CrossFit ."
