Mommy Makeover

April 22, 2010

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 —

“I’m the kind of person who likes to be challenged, and Rob is the kind of guy who went right along with that,” she said.


Rebecca Hampton

Lost: 19 pounds, 6 percent body fat

For Rebecca Hampton, the eight weeks of Mommy Makeover is just the beginning of her future in fitness.

She set a weight-loss goal of 21 pounds by the end of our project, and she is dangerously close — and expects to hit the 21-pound mark on Monday.

She said she had no idea she was capable of.

“What can I do in another eight weeks that I can’t do now?”

Her ultimate goal is to lose another 35 pounds, and she said she looks forward to a time when she has lost enough that she will grant herself a once-a-week “cheat day” to be a little more lenient on her nutrition.

“I’m not done yet,” she said. “I’m still on this journey. This is just a huge jumpstart.”

Admittedly, she said her weight loss hasn’t been easy. Rebecca, who has recently gone back to work after her maternity leave, now works out at 5 a.m. before commuting an hour to work and says she will continue training with Rob Land as well.

“It’s a choice. You have to choose to do it and make it a priority,” Rebecca said.

She says the project has taught her how to change her lifestyle, and she and husband Robby have enjoyed learning how to cook together.

And Robby has had his own makeover during the last eight weeks — he lost 12 pounds as well.
