I Am Me Again...

Hello my name is Angel and I am a chemist and a recovering FAD DIET participant.

When I turned 40 I took a hard look at myself and I didn't like what I saw. From an active size 6 female to do nothing size 12. I know how I got there and part of it was from medication. The other part was just me being lazy. I tried and constantly failed to lose weight. But I told myself that "at least I tried". I was fooling myself over the years but the mirror never lied.

Well, I became ...
Hello my name is Angel and I am a chemist and a recovering FAD DIET participant.

When I turned 40 I took a hard look at myself and I didn't like what I saw. From an active size 6 female to do nothing size 12. I know how I got there and part of it was from medication. The other part was just me being lazy. I tried and constantly failed to lose weight. But I told myself that "at least I tried". I was fooling myself over the years but the mirror never lied.

Well, I became fed up with my self inflicted situation. I chose to truly do something about it. I researched and researched and started eating healthier. I changed the way I cooked, the way I eat, the way I completely look at food. By my 41st birthday I had lost 13-pounds! I was so happy and especially proud of myself. I still wasn't exercising but I was taking it one step at a time.

Now it was time to start working out. I had tried so much in the past. I just wasn't interested and my weight didn't help. I am not really a people person so having an exercise buddy wasn't an option for me. And now that I had hit a plateau with my weight loss I needed to do more.

I found an activity that was right for me; kickboxing. I am learning so much; mentally, actively, self esteem, and self defence. Did I mention that I am HAVING FUN?!?! Well, I am! I am still in this class and still loving it. I been taking this class now for 1-year.

I am now 42 years old and I have lost an overall weight of 43-pounds! I was a size 12 and I am now a size 6. My over-all body is becoming toned and muscular. Muscular does not mean manly it just means healthy. I AM LIVING A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE.

It has been a journey over these several years but it was worth it. I am more comfortable in my own skin. I smile more. I believe in myself again. I AM ME AGAIN...
