Cyn's Holding Steady

I am 41, and have lost 110 pounds. I started in late 2010, and reached my "goal" weight in December 2011. (I've considered myself to be essentially in maintenance since June 2011, though -- I stopped actively dieting due to a family crisis at that time, but the last 15+ pounds came off during those 6 months.)

As an attorney, I have a high-stress job (and life!), and maintenance is essentially a very time consuming second shift. But so far it has been worth the price of admission!

Fitness Minutes: 48,340

My Goals:
My primary goal is to maintain my 110 pound weight loss (or if that proves untenable, perhaps maintain at 10 pounds or so heavier). Secondary goals include increased cardio fitness and improvements in strength and flexibility.

My Program:
My primary cardio exercise is running, but I also do aerobic dance, and go for long walks and/or hiking. I have fallen away from regular strength training due to a family crisis, but am doing what I can to maintain my strength for now. Hope to get back to working out with a trainer soon -- I enjoy being able to lift really heavy things!

Personal Information:
Originally from Upstate New York; currently live in Washington, DC.

Hello! found you on a message board. Very inspiring story.

I am currently struggling with infertility myself so to find someone else who knows what I'm dealing with AND has a high stress job...sounds like I needed to find your page for inspiration today!:)

Bravo, Cyn!

ALso grew up in NY and then spent early part of career in DC. Family issues can create a multitude of problems, just had an 8 year detour due to just such issues. Now it's time to get back to paying attention to my own needs and wants.

I'm inspired by your story! Keep up the good work.

Wendy

Your page, and story is very inspiring to me. My dad had a stroke and my mom has been diagnosed with dimentia in the same week! I appreciate that you were able to maintain and even lose during such a hard time! It gives me hope.
