‘Loser’ to stick to goals
Published: Thursday, January 16th, 2014
It’s a new year for everyone. While many are making resolutions, Rosemary Arp is making a promise.
“I feel like 2014 is going to be a good year. I am really excited for this year and I want to be able to enjoy it,” she said.
One way Arp plans to enjoy the year is by getting healthier — and joining the Custer County Chronicle’s Biggest Loser contest.
“Since hitting middle age, I’ve put weight on and I wanted to get rid of it,” Arp said of joining the contest for the first time in 2010. “Now since I quit smoking, I’ve gained all the weight back that I lost. Now that I’m healthier on that level, I want to get better on another (level).”
During her first appearance in the contest, Arp finished fourth, losing 15 percent of her body weight. In 2012, she joined the contest once again, but dropped after a few months, saying her heart wasn’t in the competition.
“I just had no energy before,” she said. “Now that I’m eating right and exercising, I have so much more energy. It’s insane.”
