I lost over 20 pounds!

Like many people, I had the same story with being overweight (my late teens and 20’s). I did manage to drop 60-plus pounds with Weight Watchers (over 30 years ago), and kept it off for many years by playing tennis, walking, spinning, and generally being active. I’ve never really liked to work out with weights or join a fitness club. I’ve always eaten well, but I still like my chocolate, bread, and sweets … so about 10-15 pounds always seem to creep back on. I always managed to take them off, but then about 3 years ago I was diagnosed with osteopenia, and decided to get serious about working out, and do some serious weight-bearing exercise, in order to avoid taking the medication. Also, those 10-15 pounds had also come back. A couple of months later, I saw Dede’s ad for Boogie Box in a local magazine. It caught my eye because it featured Dede’s dance background, and I love to dance. I was hooked from the first class, and couldn’t wait for the next! That’s never happened to me in the past. Exercise was always so boring, and therefore difficult to sustain. Dede’s classes were fun, and motivating, while at the same time kicking my butt!

I’d also been a bit limited in my physical activities because I’d had 3 knee surgeries in the past. I found that Boogie Box actually helped strengthen the muscles around my knees. In that first year of taking Dede’s classes, I lost over 20 pounds. I also participated the next year in Dede’s 30-day Challenge (lost 7.5 inches, and 3 pounds) and just recently, with Dede’s encouragement, took part in her BBX Hardcore test group. This was one of the most challenging workouts I’ve ever done, but also had the most incredibly surprising results! I lost 14 inches and 15 pounds from areas I was never able to sculpt. It’s not any easy workout, but the results are worth the pain! For the first time in my life, my abdominals are the strongest they’ve ever been, and I have muscle tone from head to toe! I’ve truly never had results like this! Again, this would not have happened without Dede’s encouragement and support. She helps you push through to a level you never thought was possible. She truly cares that you’re getting the most you can out of your workout. That caring and realness comes out in her DVD’s, too. That’s the difference between her program and other programs out there – she keeps you motivated by encouraging you to keep on going, so you will attain your goals. I could go on and on in my praises for Dede and Boogie Box. I love everything about Boogie Box programs, and only want its continued success. I’m 57, and proof that it’s never too late to get into the best shape of your life! I can honestly say that I’m in the best shape and health of my life.

Thanks, Dede! Continued success!
