Can't Stop, Won't Stop! Week 2 of Jamie's Weight Loss Journey

It has been three weeks since Jamie embarked upon her amazing fitness journey. Her progress is nothing short of amazing:

Current Weight: 203lb (18lbs lost)

Current Body Fat: 27.7% (down 1.8%)

Jamie's progress has not come without challenges. "Cardio (cardiovascular exercise) is a HUGE challenge for me. Since I played basketball of my life, I never had to really do cardio machines or just go out and run for the heck of it. It is still the hardest part of my work out, but I vary it through interval training on the treadmill, jumping, spin, and the stair stepper. Resisting french fries is also a challenge for me!"

Aside from exercising, Jamie keeps herself busy as a middle school girl's basketball coach. She loves sports and the opportunity to motivate and inspire others. She also volunteers with a family from Berma; helping them to learn English.

How does Jamie stay motivated? "I've created a vision board that I spend 5 minutes a day looking at and reflecting on. I am also very motivated by The Biggest Loser contestants."

Next week find out Jamie's life mantra and who she looks to for inspiration.
