Hi! My name is Melissa. I am 33 years old, and I've been overweight almost my whole life. I am trying to change to a healthy lifestyle, and I am trying to use Zumba DVDs, Turbo Jam, and things like that.
I'm 5'9" tall, and after checking a BMI calculator, my goal is to get to about 140-150 (I'll pick a more specific weight when I get closer to my ideal weight and see what looks about right).
When I get to 190 lbs, and have the money for it, I'm going to look into going SKYDIVING (which has a weight limit of like 230 to it, so I couldn't do it originally) to mark my big "drop" in weight. ;-)
--Get to my ideal weight (about 140-150) and a healthy BMI.
--Tone up my body, especially my abs.
--Get to a nice (medium-low) body fat percentage.
--Live a healthy lifestyle, for once.
--Fit into a size 6 or smaller, if I can (whatever looks right on me--I won't let myself become underweight just to fit into a smaller size)).
I'm trying to portion control what I eat, and choose healthier options (whole grains, etc.)
I'm using Zumba DVDs and Turbo Jam DBDs for my exercise program--to lose weight (cardio), tone up (building muscle/strength), and to HAVE FUN exercising (so I can keep with the exercising both to lose weight AND to continue exercise even after I reach my ideal weight so I STAY at my goal weight and always be as healthy as I can).
I do also have a FitBit Charge 2 watch, so I use that to help me track my activity and water intake through the day.
My name is Melissa, I'm 33 years old, and in November 2016 I moved to Gothenburg, Sweden, to be with my Swedish boyfriend. I am currently trying to find work (hopefully in Aviation, but I am also applying for jobs working with children and as an Office Assistant). I am hoping to finally start having kids in the next year or two, but I need to lose some weight before doing so.
Weight loss support buddies are definitely a plus! Feel free to add me as a friend! And if you'd like, send me a message/email and we can exchange contact info, as well! ;-)
