Winners of the 2nd PHAT Physiques Body Transformation Challenge

Ok… We just finished the 2nd PHat PHysiques Body Transformation Challenge. This one was an 8 week challenge and I have picked 3 Winners!

Although you all looked great and made great changes… I’ve only chosen 3 of you as the top winners in the second “PHat PHysiques Body Challenge”. I chose you 3 because you were the ones that lost the highest percentage of weight out of everyone!

For the actual placings of first, second, and third… I used the highest percentage of weight loss to determine 1st place… the next lowest percentage from there for 2nd place and next lowest percentage from there for 3rd place.

We had all ladies this time in the Finals… and you all should be VERY proud of yourselves for making it through to the end of this challenge.

Our First Place winner is Nicole Augustine! This was Nicole’s second challenge and she has made awesome changes in both! She had a starting weight of 114 lbs. and an ending weight of 102.2 lbs. making her percentage of weight loss 10.35% Her and Yvette were soooo close and both look great! Nicole also entered her second Competition and placed 5th in the Bikini Open and Placed 2nd in the Sports Model Divisions at the INBA Nevada State! Good job, Nicole!

Our Second Place winner is Yvette Dix! Yvette even started the challenge late and still made great changes! She made her changes in 5 weeks and had a starting weight of 117.6 lbs. and got down to 105.5 lbs. making her percentage of weight loss… 10.29% Yvette is 45 years old and also entered her first Bikini Diva Competition and won the Masters Division at the INBA Nevada State. Way to go Yvette!

Our Third Place winner is Dona Hafalla! Dona has done soooo good during this challenge and is right up there with Yvette and Nicole. She surpassed her original goal of losing 20 lbs. by .5 lbs! Dona had a starting weight of 240 lbs. and an ending weight of 219.5 lbs. making her percentage of weight loss 8.54% I’m so proud of Dona because she accomplished what she set out to do! She made her goals and stuck to her plan and went passed what she was wanting to do! VERY good job, Dona! Keep up the good work! You could be the one to beat in the next challenge if you keep it up!

CONGRATULATIONS to ALL of you Ladies and also to EVERYONE else that did the challenge and finished the 8 week Commitment to Yourself to become Healthier and more Fit!!!

The 3rd PHat PHysiques Challenge has started and it’s still not too late to turn your photos in!

Good Luck.

Clifta’s 16 Week Body Transformation Challenge

Better Bodies 16 week Body Transformation Challenge!

I decided a couple of weekends ago to compete again…
but not in bodybuilding… in Figure and/or Ms. Physique. I started Feb. 1st taking my “before” photos and started my diet on Monday. I started off at 101.4 and will not tell you my bodyfat just yet… lol.

I will be posting tips here on my blog and making videos for my youtube channel about my progress and how I am doing things to get ready for my first Figure show… which will be in June.

Doing my cardio one day… It occured to me that there might be some of you that would want to do this journey along with me… so I thought a Better Bodies 16 week Body Transformation Challenge would be fun for you all to do along with me. 🙂

Who can participate in this challenge?
Anyone! It starts the weekend of Feb. 20th, or at least by Monday… February 22nd. You’ll have to take your “before” photos in the next couple of days and send them to me at cliftaswebsite@yahoo.com.  (Trust me… no one will see your photos but me. They will be totally safe in my hands.)

Along with your photos please send your:  Name, gender, height, weight, age, and waist measurement.

What do you need to start?
You’ll need to get a newspaper and hold it for your front pose… very important. You’ll need to take a front relaxed pose, a back relaxed pose, and a side relaxed pose. If you wish to add any other photos like… front double bicep, side chest, abs, or anything else… you are more than welcome.

Below are some examples of extra poses. (These photos are not required.)

From top to bottom… side chest pose, front double bicep pose, side tricep pose.

______________________

Below is a video with an example of the relaxed front, side, and back before photos… (these photos are the ones that are required)

What do you need to wear?
Take your photos in a bathing suit or posing suit/trunks. If you don’t have that… then shorts are ok and a sports bra. Make sure your shorts aren’t too long… I’d like to be able to see your legs. You have to show your mid section too, so no tank tops. And whoever wins… I would like to post the winner’s pics on my youtube channel, blog, and sites, if that’s ok.

We will be taking photos each month…
1st Photos… weekend of February 20th
2nd Photos… weekend of March 20th
3rd Photos… weekend of April 17th
4th Photos… weekend of May 15th
Last and Final Photos… June 12th

Does it cost anything to enter????
No. I will be posting some helpful videos and tips on my youtube channel, blog, and Facebook. This challenge does not cost anything to enter… all that I ask is when I post any videos on YouTube… that you go to my youtube channel itself at www.youtube.com/cliftafit and rate and comment on my videos. You will need to have a channel of your own to rate and comment. (This is not required to participate… I’m just asking as a favor.)

Again My channel is at www.youtube.com/cliftafit .

That’s about all I can think of for now. This should be enough to get you started and if I think of anything else I’ll add to this… or if you have any questions… please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
C
