Transformation in progress

My highest weight in 2006 was 226 lbs and I went up and down over the next four years as I struggled to lose. By 2010, I was already down 40 lbs but was having trouble making more progress. That year, a co-worker told me about SparkPeople. I was skeptical at first, but tracking my nutrition and fitness on SP while completing P90X and Insanity back to back helped me shed another 26 lbs and go from a 36" waist almost down to 30".

My highest weight in 2006 was 226 lbs and I went up and down over the next four years as I struggled to lose. By 2010, I was already down 40 lbs but was having trouble making more progress. That year, a co-worker told me about SparkPeople. I was skeptical at first, but tracking my nutrition and fitness on SP while completing P90X and Insanity back to back helped me shed another 26 lbs and go from a 36" waist almost down to 30".

After my mom passed away in 2011, I had trouble maintaining my motivation and slowly regained the last 26 lbs I had lost. Having undone all that hard work, I wasn't sure it was possible to do it all over again. Then in March 2013, I subscribed to SparkCoach and it gave me the motivation I needed to get back on track. A second round of P90X and Insanity, plus disciplined nutrition tracking using SP's tools got me back to where I wanted to be by September 2013. Though I've had my ups and downs over the years, the one thing that has remained consistent is that I haven't given up on my goals. I want to reach a healthy weight and fitness level and stay there so that I will have more energy, more confidence, and enjoy life.

And now I have a new goal to dedicate more time to supporting and motivating others, so I have enrolled as an Independent Beachbody Coach:

If you're interested in getting exercise programs like the ones I'm using, I hope you'll use my page to check them out and contact me if you'd like me to be your online coach or if you're interested in becoming a coach yourself. But selling products isn't my focus. I know from experience losing weight is hard without a buddy by your side cheering you on, or maybe even going through the struggles together with you, and I want to try to be that buddy to people. I'm normally a very private person as you can probably tell by the lack of face shots in my photo gallery, but I see this coach opportunity as another step toward personal growth and hope I can help assist others to reach their goals.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comment on my blog. I had to laugh at your last line, because while I was reading it I was thinking "He should make this into a blog!".

That was actually very helpful. Honestly, I think in some ways I was so afraid of gaining weight back that it became a self-fulfilling prophecy. This all taps right into what you just said.

You have given me much to think about, and I am now so glad I posted that blog! Thank you for taking the time to type that all out. And I really do think you should turn it into a blog. Just copy and paste!

HIYA

HOPE YOU HAD A GREAT DAY YESTERDAY.

I DID. MY LITTLE SISTER AND HER FRIEND CAME TO THE FOREST, SHE TEACHES ME THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, SHE STEERED HER SCOOTER AROUND THE FOREST USING ONE HAND, AS SHE NO LONGER HAS USE OF HER LEFT HAND AND HER LEGS. SHE IS AMAZING.

WE CAN ACHIEVE ALL YOU PUT OUR MINDS TOO, SHE IS A FANTASTIC EXAMPLE OF THIS X
