Omotayo Adeyemi: “Doing the Challenge has shown me another version of myself — a version of myself that lives a healthier life.”

Before, Omotayo didn’t see walking as exercise. Now he’s walking to the store instead of driving.

My friend, Jokky Dean, told me about the Thrive ZP Challenge. I was struggling with my weight and she thought it might help me. Before starting the Challenge, I used to drink so much soda. I never ate vegetables. I have a healthy way of living now. I’m eating things that are good for me, like salad and drinking a lot of water. I go out for jogs and use my treadmill at home, too. Before, I didn’t believe in walking. Now, if I need to go down to the store, I’ll walk instead of driving. I’m also sleeping better now that I am making these Better Choices. Doing the Challenge has given me faith and shown me another version of myself — a version of myself that lives a healthier life. 

  • Since starting my Thrive ZP Challenge, I’ve lost 40 pounds.
  • I used to do 20 push-ups every morning — now I’ve worked my way up to 50! 
  • Now that I’m eating better and watching my spending, I’m saving $200 each month. 

The Thrive ZP Challenge has also helped me connect with my family. I share my progress with them and they want to know what I’m doing and what I’m eating. My brother has joined me on this Thrive ZP journey. Overall, I have a more positive attitude and I’m appreciating life.
