Clark: 'I am still scared to jump into the Hudson'

After finishing a training weekend in Austin, Texas, with the rest of the Fit Nation Challenge participants – affectionately known as "the 6-pack," Meredith Clark tells us how her training is going, how she's improving, and what still makes her apprehensive about the Nautica New York City Triathlon on July 18. Meredith and the rest of the 6-pack, along with several CNN employees will jump into the Hudson River to swim a mile, followed by a 25-mile bike ride, and a 6-mile run.

    I commend her! My boyfriend just finished his first triathlon and he absolutely loved it and wants to do more. The one comment she said that irked me was that she hasn't lost any weight. I have to disagree with her - I'm sure she's losing weight - it's just that the weight loss is balanced out by the muscle she's gaining. Muscle weights more than fat, so it may not look like you're losing weight on the scale, but you do have less % body fat overall.
