March 9, 2012 the reason I want to lose weight and commit to the 8 week/56 day Spring 5% challenge is ....
HEALTH- I want to be healthy. As a RN I know what it truly means to have Type2 diabetes, BP issues, stroke, heart attacks, physical disabilty, sleep apnea etc....
My baby GIRL! I didn't have her until I was 34 yr.old. I want to be around for as long as I can!!!PLUS I want her to grow up accustom to a healthy lifestyle. I always have been active, I played soccer& ran track . As an adult I had been active in a running group. I grew up eating fast food/soda, basically unhealthy and continued that in my adult life until my metabolism stopped when I hit 30, lol!
I didn't grow up obese, I got married at 29 yrs. old, ate unhealthy and got injured, so I stopped running in that year I gained 50lbs. I have made EXCUSES and" TRIED" to lose weight the past 5 years. Then, I gained 35 lbs in pregnancy on top of that! BUT, I have said goodbye to the baby weight :)!!!
I JUST SIMPLY WANT TO FEEL LIKE ME AGAIN!!!!!!!!!! I'm sure my DH would appreciate it too!
I want to have more ENERGY!!
I want to shop/wear "normal" size clothes (12 or smaller my definition)!!!
and last but not least I want to run with my running group(Run On, Dallas) in the 11:00-12:00 min pace group and remain injury free!! I HEART RUNNING, it is so freeing!
I would also like to take family photos and share them instead of deleting them all due to embarrassment of not being able to recognize who I am!!!!!!
I commit to 30 mins of daily exercise and staying in my calorie range 6 /7 days for 8 weeks!!
