Hi! My name is Melissa. I am 33 years old, and I've been overweight almost my whole life. I am trying to change to a healthy lifestyle, and I am trying to use Zumba DVDs, Turbo Jam, and things like that.

I'm 5'9" tall, and after checking a BMI calculator, my goal is to get to about 140-150 (I'll pick a more specific weight when I get closer to my ideal weight and see what looks about right).

When I get to 190 lbs, and have the money for it, I'm going to look into going SKYDIVING (which has a weight limit of like 230 to it, so I couldn't do it originally) to mark my big "drop" in weight. ;-)


Member Since: 12/4/2006

Fitness Minutes: 10,112

My Goals:
--Get to my ideal weight (about 140-150) and a healthy BMI.

--Tone up my body, especially my abs.

--Get to a nice (medium-low) body fat percentage.

--Live a healthy lifestyle, for once.

--Fit into a size 6 or smaller, if I can (whatever looks right on me--I won't let myself become underweight just to fit into a smaller size)).


My Program:
I'm trying to portion control what I eat, and choose healthier options (whole grains, etc.)

I'm using Zumba DVDs and Turbo Jam DBDs for my exercise program--to lose weight (cardio), tone up (building muscle/strength), and to HAVE FUN exercising (so I can keep with the exercising both to lose weight AND to continue exercise even after I reach my ideal weight so I STAY at my goal weight and always be as healthy as I can).

I do also have a FitBit Charge 2 watch, so I use that to help me track my activity and water intake through the day.



Personal Information:
My name is Melissa, I'm 33 years old, and in November 2016 I moved to Gothenburg, Sweden, to be with my Swedish boyfriend. I am currently trying to find work (hopefully in Aviation, but I am also applying for jobs working with children and as an Office Assistant). I am hoping to finally start having kids in the next year or two, but I need to lose some weight before doing so.


Other Information:
Weight loss support buddies are definitely a plus! Feel free to add me as a friend! And if you'd like, send me a message/email and we can exchange contact info, as well! ;-)

    Hi Melissa!

    I was just wondering how you were doing and if you were back in Germany?

    Hope you had some happy holidays!

    I'm glad that you joined the Eagles Wings team. Your story would be an inspiration to a few of the members of the team, I hope you post an Introduction letter to the other members, telling them a little about yourself. Brie, Team Leader of the Eagles Wings.
