Took over 20 years but I finally got it!!!

I've done every diet known to man. I was successful too. Unfortunately, I was a lazy lump and didn't exercise. So I would gain the weight back. I wouldn't listen when people would say that you need to diet and exercise together.

Well, now that I am in my 40's I thought it was time to make a permanent change. I needed to get healthy once and for all. I began watching what I eat and I became addicted to exercise. Shocker!!! I decided that it didn't matter whether I lost any ...

Well, now that I am in my 40's I thought it was time to make a permanent change. I needed to get healthy once and for all. I began watching what I eat and I became addicted to exercise. Shocker!!! I decided that it didn't matter whether I lost any weight, I just wanted to be healthy. I started my change a year and a half ago. Since then I've lost almost 50 pounds and my endurance is through the roof. Both of which were added bonuses. Still a work in progress which I expect to be from now on.

This is my life now. I am never going back to being unhealthy again. Yes, you can quote me on that!!!

My Goals:
My goal over the next year is to lose another 20 pounds. If I can reach this goal, I would love to get licensed as a zumba instructor or personal trainer for older active adults. I would love to work as a fitness instructor in a 55 and over community or maybe be a personal trainer for women over 40 who want to change their life.

My Program:
I am watching what I eat and trying to stick to a 1,500 calorie a day diet.

I am also trying to burn 2,500 calories a week.

I take a zumba class 4 times a week. I also lift weights or take a fit pump class 2 times a week.

Lastly, I am trying to drink 8 glasses of water a day. This goal is new to me and actually the hardest.

Personal Information:
My name is Tina and I live in Southeastern PA. But I was born and raised on the beach of Wildwood, NJ. I'm married with 2 children.

You got me with "What's Raggedy Ann?" When I read it, I blanched, gasped and grabbed the mouse to go find a picture to give you, thinking "What rock did she grow up under?" When I saw "Kidding," I remembered that, with a father with that sense of humor, there's been no childhood-preventing rocks weighing you down. You rascalette.

I love the story you shared about the 3 different reactions to your pics in that moment. How cool is that? Funny how something can convey so much in such a short period of time. But it does make you realize that all of it is worth it and we can and will keep going!

I am glad that you all got to see your son pitch on Sunday! Sounds like they will get plenty of chances to see him play in the next couple weeks as well. I am guessing you put some pics on your pic section so I will go check them out after I type this.

As for me, I will certainly validate your claim that I look like a happy camper :) She gives me lots to smile about and I am very fortunate!

Hope that rain stayed away long enough for you to get outside some. I know it has been awfully rainy here the last few days but I think it is supposed to be really nice by the weekend. Hope so!
