Hi! I'm Liz, welcome to my page! :) I hope you can find something interesting, motivational, and/or helpful for achieving your own goals :)

GOOD LUCK!

When I was in high school (graduated in 2006) I was very active. I wasn't in perfect shape, but I was doing pretty good. You wouldn't look at me and think I was overweight. In college the focus went from being active to studying and having a social life, which made me gain 20lbs or so in my first couple years. And then ...

GOOD LUCK!

When I was in high school (graduated in 2006) I was very active. I wasn't in perfect shape, but I was doing pretty good. You wouldn't look at me and think I was overweight. In college the focus went from being active to studying and having a social life, which made me gain 20lbs or so in my first couple years. And then during my junior year I became incredibly depressed. I stopped going to classes and hanging out with my friends and I stayed at home sleeping and eating. This caused my weight to skyrocket... I gained over 100lbs over the next 3 years and have been battling the last couple to get it off. I have had some success in the past, but each time have gained it all back. This past time I gained it back and then some, putting me at my heaviest weight ever (just over 300lbs). I really think I can do this, and I'm finally at a point where it seems like things are coming together for me to succeed :)

My Goals:
Lose 80lbs in 2015!

Finish Insanity!

My Program:
-I participate in DietBets often, they really keep me on track.

-I use an app called Water Your Body to remind myself to drink more water.

-I'm giving up soda and fast food for 2015 :)

-I'm active everyday- my fitbit is set to a goal of 12,500 steps a day

-I track my food everyday... all the time... not just when I'm doing well!

-Not feeling bad if I slip up or do something unhealthy. I'm not dieting, I'm making long-term, permanent changes. It's okay to have a cookie every now and then! :D

-I started Insanity on 2-16-15 and I want to finish the whole program while eating as clean as possible throughout those 2 months

Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.

Hi Liz
hope you are hanging in there and keeping strong. Just checking in to see how week 3 is going for you. For me some days have been really good, I do feel much better at keeping up with the Sean T and others and the scale has moved so I am happy something is happening. Tomorrow is the last workout day of week 3 for me. stay blessed

Hi Liz,
I live in Dubai, right now the weather here is really nice and cooler than it usually is but the summer months are unbearably hot, there's not a chance one can run outside . I Love running too it was actually my main go to workout before I found insanity. The thing is I know I can be consistent with insanity cause all I have to do is pop in the DVD and off I go. So I think if I have a treadmill at home I can push my self to add at least a 30 min run in the evenings. I also feel I don't burn as much with just insanity . Today was the last day of work out for week 2 for me . I am looking forward to the resting tomorrow, the pure cardio and abs workout knocked me out . Hope you have a blessed weekend.

Hi, Liz
I am not doing anything else so far just really focusing on eating healthy this time around. The last time I did insanity I ate whatever I wanted but didn't really see much weight loss . I am thinking of getting a treadmill to start adding some running in the evening. what about you ? any additional exercise ?
