Leslie is the overall winner of Rob’s Big Losers! She lost more than 30 pounds and was an at-home competitor. She fits in workouts early in the morning and during her breaks at work. After spending years focusing on everyone else in her family, she’s now making her health a priority.
April Duncan was in a car wreck that left her bed ridden for four months. She gained a lot of weight during that time and ended up having gastric bypass surgery. She gained some weight back and now she’s hoping Rob’s Big Losers will help her get healthy again.
Rob’s Big Loser Katie Harbin is a chaplain and a mom of two. She’s very creative with her at-home workouts, making weights out of water-filled jugs. She also wrote an encouraging message on her scale to remind her not to focus too much on the number.

After my flare-up and day of rest yesterday I was back at it today. I did the Cardio Dance Blast Class tonight and it felt AMAZING! However by the end of the class my hip and back, which has been my primary source of pain was already beginning to hurt.
I had a discussion with God prior to class, if he would keep my pain to a minimum I promise to push through it and keep moving! I can already see such a difference I don’t ever want to turn back or reach a stand still! #RBL2019
I was super excited to come home a create a healthy lunch. Even my 3 year old that tagged alone made healthy choices. Brian wanted strawberries, black beans, caulliflower Rice’s, humus and tortilla chips. I have a black bean, salsa, and caulliflower rice barrito with a side of veggies and hummus. I don’t like carrots, but today I’m going to learn to like them with he help of my favorite humus. Such an encouragement and support this morning 💕
Working out can be fun!
I used to think that working out was a chore. Sweating was an inconvenience and going to the gym was a hassle. Now that I am 5 weeks in I’ve discovered that going to the gym is a stress reliever!
Sweating is proof of putting your all into it and working out is worth it. My favorite is the Sprint 8 on the recumbent bike. If you have not tried it yet, I highly recommend it.
Happy Monday 😊
Excited to be back at Body Combat this morning! As I left my class this morning and was thinking about my busy day and week Johnny Diaz’s song Breathe came on.
So friends as we start this week of our journey remember to just breathe when things seem to get a bit crazy! Rest in God’s peace and grace and take a deep breathe. Have a beautiful day❤️
This is a picture I recently took after a workout but it is really the story behind the picture that lead me to apply to be one of RBL. I suffered a traumatic allergic reaction in October that created several health problems. After two months on bed rest and another month on restricted movement I found myself dealing with weight gain, depression, and lethargy in addition to the health issues. I needed encouragement and accountability to win my health back. His radio offers daily encouragement and is a part of my daily life.
Since starting RBL I have increased my workouts to be 3-5 days a week, and I have increased my endurance. In December, walking from a parking lot into my office was as much work for me as going to the gym and spending 1 hour in class. Now, I am not saying all the health issues are resolved, but I am not working so hard to walk into my office anymore! Praise his holy name for his strength that carries me through my journey back to good health. Thanks to my team at GYMCA for keeping me accountable! Thanks to HIS radio for providing this amazing opportunity!
I won’t lie, today hasn’t been a great healthy eating day. I’m already over my calories and I don’t plan to do any exercise because I am swamped with homework. There will always be days like this, but there will also be days of triumphant dieting and exercise with plenty of calories to boot. The main thing to remember, for me anyway, is that I’m human and I wasn’t created to be and do everything perfect. I will pick myself up in the morning, granted my Lord and Savior sees fit for me to wake up, and I will go to the meet me halfway and be proud of all the days that were worth bragging about. I will then go to my Zumba class and do my strength training and tomorrow will be spectacular!!! Moral of my story today is, we all may have bad days, but we have a wonderful life! #RBL2019
