I discovered fitness at the age of 29 because although I was skinny, I was weak. I was the anti-athlete. However, not being able to fit in pre-pregnancy clothes forced me to make a choice. New (bigger) wardrobe or join a gym. I joined a gym. I could not run one mile at a 13:00/mile pace.

From ages 29 to 46, I worked out and ran lots and lots. Then all of a sudden, I felt burned out. I didn't work out much, ate a lot, and wound up weighing what I did when I was 7 months pregnant with my first son. 127.

So at 47, I set a goal to return to optimal running shape.
I recommitted myself to a regular exercise plan that included running, walking, and lifting weights. I wanted to set a good example for my children, who are all teenaged and up. I reached my goal weight of 115 on September 8, 2017.

While trying to accomplish the weight loss, I also began working full-time again (for the first time in 21 years) at a local public school. My new goal is to find a work-life balance that is fulfilling and life-giving, while maintaining my exercise regimen and not giving in to the binge eating that comes with stress.

    IN every moment you get the choice to be inspirational. Or not. In every moment you get the choice to be your most remarkable self. Or not. In every moment you get the choice to listen to your heart. Or not. Bri Seeley
