Let me tell you, this was the hardest winner to choose since we started the DreamBody Competition – a 12-week body and life transformation competition – last year! The selection committee had a two hour meeting sifting through all the competitors.
It came down to three finalists. We had a very hard time eliminating one from them, then we had two. And boy did it take a long time to decide between those two! Their results, photos, essays and attendance were very similar. We debated back and forth until we made our final choice…
And the winner is Sana Shaukat! Sana’s weight when she joined was 90.9 kg and at the end of the 12-week contest her weight was 78.5 kg. She lost 12.4 kg, and a total of 16 inches of fat from her body overall. Wow! Impressive or what?? (let me remind you, this was achieved in less than 12 weeks – Sana did not join on the first day – and only 23 minutes per exercise session!)
Here’s Sana’s essay:
4 years ago, I was frustrated and fed up with my body. I believed that to look good you couldn’t eat, and you had to exercise like a maniac. Keeping this in mind, I started a weight-loss journey. Initially I lost weight but gradually this stopped working as I reached a weight-loss plateau, which was difficult to break. I figured since it took me years to get so much out of shape, therefore, it would take me years to get back in shape. I tried further for 2 years continuously. I had tried many weight-loss programs and forms of exercises but I did not see good results.
I was finally tired of not being able to lose weight no matter what I tried and consequently gained a lot of weight back very soon.
And then one fine day, I stumbled onto DreamBody Centre website quite by accident when I was searching for a way to lose weight and stuff. I went through the website. At first, I was kind of reluctant to believe what it said, i.e. transformation in 23 minutes. But later on when I saw all those weight-loss success stories that had been published, were very inspiring. It made me think that maybe it would work for me but still wasn’t sure.
Well, luckily I got a chance to join DBC by Mr. Suhail. I met him and he said that I would lose pounds and inches on his system as long as I did everything required by the program. After joining I realized that all my previous concepts about losing weight were wrong and all I really needed was DBC. I needed some encouragement to stick to the program, where the competition proved to be an excellent motivation. I started to lose that extra weight and “I broke through my weight-loss plateau!” I’m eating more nutritious food than I ever did. I can see the toning and definition I was hoping for, all in less than the amount of time I had on exercising each day.
I absolutely love the results. I have lost many kgs and inches from my body, and I am now fitter than I was in high school.
I am not at the end of my journey, but this program has taught me not to be as concerned with the number on the scale as the number on the tape measure. This program is definitely helped me to get toned. Obviously, I still need to keep working, but the progress in just 12 weeks has been amazing, and I know it will keep getting better.
I would definitely recommend this program to anyone who is just trying to drop a few pounds, those who have more than just a few pounds to lose, and those who are in the same position I was where nothing was working. Commit to the program, commit to yourself, and you will see the benefits.
I would like to end this by saying thank you to the cordial DBC staff who helped me out and motivated me. Thank you sincerely to the most selfless Mr. Suhail Algosaibi, for selecting me in the top 10 and providing me with such life changing gift of 3 months free membership and I also thank you again for introducing this awesome system.
Well done Sana and thank you for the kind words. I think she gives us (and me) a bit too much credit, at the end of the day it’s her who made the effort and implemented our system. I’m really pround of Sana and what she’s accomplished.
What you don’t know is that he story has a bit of a fairy tale twist to it. Let me tell you the story, a few months ago the story came out that Bahrain has the highest obesity levels for women in the world. Annoyed by this revelation, I offered ten women the chance to get three months FREE memberships at the DreamBody Centre. And guess what, Sana was one of ten who applied. She told me that the day she got accepted into the free membership programme was one of the happiest days of her life. And this was overshadowed by winning our third competition.
It really makes us feel privileged to be able to positively impact someone’s life like that. That’s literally what we live for. Well done again Sana and please spend your money wisely 🙂
Here’s some more feedback Sana gave us:
1. What physical changes have you experienced after completing the 12-week program?
I can breathe! I no longer sweat with the slightest exertion. Now I can do even those exercises which I never thought I could do. My stamina has improved and I am much stronger than before.
2. What emotional changes have you experienced after completing the 12-week program?
It feels amazing to be healthy! I’m more confident about myself and moreover I’ve changed from being very frustrated about weight-loss to a very relaxed mood. I now have a very positive attitude towards everything.
3. Have you accomplished the goal that you set for yourself? If so, how do you feel about this accomplishment?
I’ve accomplished more than I thought I would in these 12 weeks. It feels great to be a winner for yourself.
Finally, here’s the interview I did the day I gave her the giant novelty cheque. Look forward to your feedback! Oh, and stay tuned, we’ll announce the grand prize winner soon!
