I have lost weight the healthy way and I love my new lifestyle so much I don't want to give it up for anything. If anyone tries to take it away I will put up a huge fight, even if it is myself who is the enemy. Yes, we can find ways to adapt and live life to the fullest in no matter what condition we are in, but why not try to live your life to the healthiest if you can? I'm doing this for myself, I want to feel good about the woman I see in the mirror, I want to feel like I am attractive. I am also doing this for others, if I don't take care of myself I will become a burden, and I wont be able to take care of anyone else either.
I am a busy mother of two, I just had my last baby 7/22/10 and I really want to get into shape and feel good about myself. I'm not only juggling being a mother, but I also work part time in a medical laboratory. It's all crazy but I do like my career and being able to help others.
I have always fought with my weight my whole life, but I have always remained physically active since I was a teenager. I love working out. I find that the biggest change I need to make is how I eat. I do feel good physically, but I know I can always improve and I just want to be fitter than I am today.
I started getting serious with the SP program at the beginning of June and reached a healthy weight in October 2011! I reached my dream weight in 2012. I love this program and am so happy with the progress.
I started signing up for tons of races this year. I have ran several 5Ks, a few 10Ks and a novice triathalon. I just ran my first half marathon in July 2013. Even once I reached my goal weight on the scale I learned that there is so much I can always keep working on. Right now I'm focused on maintaining my lifestyle and becoming a better athlete.
