My name is Heather. I am 27 years old and I am 5' 3". In the last 5 years, I have dealt with weight jumping. The first two years, I went from being 190 pounds to 118 pounds. I worked out at the YMCA, six days a week and roughly 3-4 hours a day. It differed from pilates, yoga, callenetics, belly dancing, walking, roller blading, studio cycling and weight training. I even got first place in a 5k! I attempted to be a lacto-ovo vegetarian for four months and felt amazing. However, I still had a lot of learning to do that meal plan healthy.
Then I met my husband, and honestly, I got lazy. His regime plans of eat whatever he wanted and still maintaining his six pack looked good and I thought my body would follow. Unfortunately, it did not. Three years later and 65 pounds added, I am back to my start at 180 pounds.
The only difference now? My husband is now in basic training for the air force and I am home alone with very limited funds. The YMCA programs I used to do is not in my budget.
I have a lot of relearning to do. How can I lose this weight healthy? What foods should I take in? What food regime can I afford? And mostly, what exercise habits can I pick up that cost little to nothing and will show amazing results (especially through the upcoming winter months?)
Time will tell. All I know is, I did it once, I know I can do this again. And hopefully learn from my first mistake of letting myself slide into the drone of not caring about my health!
