Mommy Makeover

Check out the results from our weight-loss project

Have a look at how our Mommy Makeover ladies shaped up over the last eight weeks.

Kokomo —  

Charity Rossiter

Lost: 8 pounds, 3 percent body fat

Being able to fit back into her pre-baby clothes isn’t the only thing Mommy Makeover participant Charity Rossiter has gained from the eight-week project that saw our moms working out three times a week with a personal trainer, ramping up their cardiovascular exercise and buckling down on their nutrition.

All along, Charity has known that the Mommy Makeover project would be one that could help her immensely. After losing a significant amount of weight in her 20s, she met her husband and the two have made fitness and health a priority. But after her nearly 1-year-old son, Jonathan, was born, she said she had started to feel like “the old Charity.”

After Mommy Makeover — where she lost 9 1/4 inches and 8 pounds over the last eight weeks — she says she feels normal again.

“I feel like me again. I really do. I feel like I’m not just a mom, I’m not just a wife,” she said.

She said she plans on continuing to work with trainer Brad Webster after the conclusion of the project and has plans to compete in a biathlon and the Break-Away Bicycle Club’s Sunstroke 74 and Sizzlin’ Century Ride.


Jennie Rhees

Lost: 10 pounds, 3 percent body fat

Jennie Rhees says she knows that the warmer weather and the end of Mommy Makeover will mean she won’t be in the gym as much as she has been the past eight weeks.

But that doesn’t mean she’ll be slacking.

“I may not make it into the gym every day, but there’s something I can find,” said Jennie.

Jogging strollers, running and impromptu workouts at the jungle gym are all becoming part of Jennie’s repertoire.

She also plans to continue training with Rob Land, because she knows she needs some accountability to maintain the weight she’s lost and keep up her strength training.

    Mommy Makeover participant Charity Rossiter has said that the toughest part of this program is missing the time with her son, Jonathan, and husband, Ryan.
