Hello Team! My name is Sara. I'm 36, married and currently have no children and no pets. I am a full-time student studying Medical Radiography. I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I had my 'scare' when I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 07. I lost some weight, got my numbers under control, then became complacent, gained some weight back (not all lost, thankfully), held steady for a while and now my numbers are creeping up where I don't like them and it's time to take control now and keep it under control.
I am a laid back, easy-going person with a twisted sense of humor that runs toward quoting movie lines that I think fit the situation. I only let very few people see that side of my personality simply because most people don't get it. A joke just isn't funny it you have to explain it, lol! I am married to a wonderful guy that has helped me become comfortable in my own skin and has taught me to truly love myself. I thank the Lord daily for bringing him into my life. We have a fairly unique history in that we met on match.com, so yes we are a success story!
One may wonder why I wrote that I currently have no children. This is my sweet angel in Heaven:
I live in the hope of being able to see him again one day!
I am hoping that this challenge will help me to turn my healthy changes into a way of life, and not just for a week or two. I want my healthy changes to be in place and a habit when I start clinicals in the fall. This will be a hectic time that can make or break me, and I want to make it!
Can't wait to meet other team members!
Bonus Challenge Results:
Body Fat%= 49.77 (YIKES!!) Me no likey :(
lbs's of Body Fat= 99.03
Lean Body Wt=99.07
Got to start somewhere, but this does provide me with motivation to see the % and lbs of body fat go down and the lean body weight go up.
