LiveFit Challenge Week 14: Linda’s Update

Linda Halla is a patient access representative at the Women's Center of Aurora BayCare Medical Center.

Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.

The beginning of the week went really well we did a mini triathlon on Tuesday at the YMCA. Then Thursday Dr. Kincheloe gave a very informative presentation

on Nutrition and how your body works with food,exercise . After our presentation on Thursday some of the six pack girls we had more in depth conversations

re: Information about exercise and diet and weight. Well needless to see the conversation always seems to go back to weight. Why are we so obsessed with

weight. I can tell you. Physicians,Insurance companies they dictate what weight a person should be. REALLY I am really getting tired of hearing people say “How much weight have you lost” only to let them know less than 10 pounds but in actuality I have lost a lot of inches and went down quite a few pant sizes. Does anybody really care that I work out 6 days a week for 1-2 hours and really have changed my eating habits only to have lost 10 pounds. I am sure if I went for a physical they wouldn’t say wow is she is great shape. They of course would have to document according to the BMI charts that I am morbidly obese.

So this is a real fact that I am sure a lot of Women especially have to deal with all the time. Like I said exercising and eating are going well the scale on the other hand not so much. Friday another Migraine well better to only have one this week instead of last week 3. I will still keep my chin up and continue onward. All the trainers rock and really offer such wonderful support. Thanks to all of them. & to the six pack support team we will only be together for 6 more weeks. I will certainly miss the comradery.
