Riedy drops out of FIT Challenge
Dec 8, 2013
FIT Challenger Nick Riedy has decided to leave the contest.
This is the first time since the challenge started in 2009 that a contestant has quit.
He had lost 5 pounds since the season started July 1.
“After a long struggle attempting to balance my life with work, school and the FIT Challenge, I have come to realize that I am not able to do it all,” Riedy wrote in a message to the FIT Challenge. “I gave it my best effort, and my health and school work suffered because of it.”
Riedy went onto to write: “Over the past few weeks with just watching what I’m eating and getting proper rest, I already feel different. I haven’t given up on myself or my goal. However, I regret to say that continuing with the FIT Challenge is no longer possible for me. I want to thank FIT for this wonderful opportunity and will continue to come to activities that they throw. Thank you to everyone.”
