Our Spring 2023 Beyond the Challenge Winner, Karissa!


Change is hard for me. Getting out of my comfort zone and doing things for myself does not come easy. But when I realized how badly I was struggling with my mental and physical health, I knew I needed to make a change. This is why I started the CSE Fall Challenge in 2021.

My main reason for starting was to better myself physically. I knew I wanted to lose weight and feel better on the outside, but I didn’t realize how much better I would be feeling on the inside. Of course, the physical changes I’ve had have been amazing and so rewarding. But having more energy to be a good mom, enjoying social settings more, and just feeling happier on the daily has been even more rewarding.

This was my fourth time doing a challenge strictly. I love feeling myself get stronger with each challenge. That being said, Clean Simple Eats isn’t just a challenge to me; it’s a lifestyle and it completely saved my life.
