Hi! My name is Nicole and I am 25 year old Mother and Wife. My husband is in the Marine Corps and currently deployed while I am home with our almost 5 year old son (will be in 8 days) and 23 month old daughter. I have battled with Asthma since I was about 10 years old and have been dealing with being overweight for even longer. I had a very brief period of being a normal weight but I wasn't in a healthy place and got there by living off of rice, ice berg lettuce, coffee and water (when I was 16). I have gone up and down from my lowest at 16 being 125 to my highest at 18 being 318 (yes I put on just under 200 lbs in 2 years)
Anyways.. This most recent journey I have started on was at 262 on my 25th birthday (in August) and today I am currently at 222. So 40 lbs down... but with the cooler temps my asthma has gotten so bad that it is actually HARDER to workout now than t was for me at 262lbs. I attempted to do a 10 minute cardio video with Coach Nicole and barely made it to 5 minutes before I couldn't push past the pain in my lungs. I am on Asmanex, singulair and have an emergency inhaler that I use before working out and I still can't push past the 5 minutes. It's very discouraging and I am just trying to keep on course and push through this pain to get back to where I was ..
So after all of these rambles.. I am here because I need the support and motivation to keep moving forward despite this road block.
