My goal at first wasn't really to lose a TON of weight, but rather to just feel good in my own skin. With that said, its hard to do when my body is my worst enemy. But now with some research and motivation, I'm giving full blown exercise another try. I'm mainly doing Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis workout videos and lifting weights (because I want to have that slim and toned body builder look) until I can get the majority of the weight off. Once that happens and my joints wont be as helpless, I want to learn MMA, and try my hand at running a marathon.
Those are my ultimate fitness goals, and I don't know if I can achieve them, but I have my whole life ahead of me to try. And that's enough inspiration for me. If you'd like to someone to talk to, to keep motivated or for advice, I'm here for ya. Just drop me a line. God bless.
I have many goals, but my biggest is to look as strong as I feel on the inside. Being a person who suffers from Fibromyalgia I think that my body should really portray how I really feel, and that's STRONG! I'm a fighter! I don't let the daily pain get to me, I don't let people walk over me, I've dealt with a lot and its only made me an even tougher chick and I'm damn proud of it!!
