This is our second LEANing challenge. We had 70 people sign up for our first challenge with ~55 sticking with it. For those 55, we saw results in almost every single person, some quite dramatic as you will see tomorrow when I post some Before and After pictures. There were plenty of people who participated that had wanted to take off those few extra pounds and lean out for quite some time but needed a push to get themselves started. The Challenge ended up being a perfect catalyst.
