I cannot believe 30 days is over just like that. It is amazing how time can fly when you are having fun. This challenge provoked me in so many ways. Many of which you will see on camera on the Troy Show Reality Special airing on Kenosha Channel 14 on  Time Warner Cable this May.

This big question is how much weight did I loose? That is the measuring stick. I lost about 10 pounds as of this writing the entire month. After the initial burst of weight loss, I started loosing 1-2 pounds per week.

There is more to the story however. I didn't run around or exercise as a kid. I was never involved in sports. I was always book smart, not physical. The most I moved my body was walking to and from my car.

So when I walked into the gym, I was frightened. I had to face the very fear that kids teased me about. It was like walking in the doors of high school all over again. This time however the results were different.

Each day and each week I built muscle and started to look more favorably on working out. It started becoming less of a diet, and more of a lifestyle change.

I love the gym now. I plan on becoming an active member and to continue the healthy eating habits I have learned throughout.

I want to thank Anytime Fitness and Trainer Sam Sackett. Who with his patience never gave up on me. I call him the miracle worker fitness trainer! I want to thank Dr. Susan Smith Jones. Her best selling book "Walking on Air: Your 30-day Inside and Out Rejuvenation Makeover", kicked off this challenge. If you haven't heard our 3 part audio series, you should. It will get you moving as well.

A big shout out goes to Target for allowing our cameras in the store on such short notice. They blocked off the area for me! How cool is that?

The takeaway from all of this is that in order to be our best selves we have to face our fears. It doesn't matter how many days, weeks, months, or years you have told yourself the contrary. We become so comfortable in fear it holds us hostage.

Today on April 30th, 2014! I am free! May the Journey Continue!

Hey everybody! Sometimes you cannot post your feelings in 140 characters or less so here it goes. The first 15 days of the challenge have been amazing. I have lost weight. About 6 pounds as of this writing. That is after my first full week at the gym. 6 Pounds in one week. Not bad.

I am eating less and still getting full and feel healthier and strong. Anytime Fitness, Nutrex-Hawaii and Susan Smith Jones have been amazing!

If you  haven't heard our 3-part audio series based on Susan Smith Jones' hit book "Walking on Air: Your 30-Day Inside and Out Rejuvenation Makeover", I sure hope you do. There is even a special offer just for YOU.

To be honest I doubted myself. I made a promise to you the Troy Show audience and to myself. I wasn't sure I would stick to it. I have and I am actually doing ok. Both are shockers to me.

I did this challenge for myself. I wanted to feel better about myself. I graduate college this year. I always say that if you do things for other people you can't be successful. Your support has meant the world.

I am training 3 days a week doing cardio and weight training with our tremendous partner Anytime Fitness! Our cameras literally showed the first time I walked into a gym, and it will air worldwide.. It's crazy.

The first time I left the Gym, my legs hurt so bad! Now, I look forward to going to the gym. Not to brag but the weights are the easiest part. Its the damn stretching that is a pain in the you know what. I am so use to sitting behind a desk, or on a stage talking.

It wasn't all pretty as you will see on The Troy Show Reality Special coming this May. The camera caught some of my most intimate moments.

I posted on Facebook how I regretted letting the cameras into my life so much. You'll see why this May.

The next 15 days are the beginning of a new life for me. I look forward to what ensues.
