It requires desire, to make a difference.
You master your mind... You master your weight.
Fitness shows us we are change makers, it is only a tool in rebuilding our lives.
It's not about numbers on a scale, it's about getting up one more time than you fall.

:: MY STORY ::
I live in Christchurch, New Zealand, Just a reminder, the seasons are opposite here, I'm 34 years old :)

From age 19 onward, my weight climbed too much... I got as high as 120kgs, (264lb) for various reasons. mostly being unhappy with life.. but now.....
I'm ready to get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!

In my first few months of Spark, I went for a run to try and train for the 5k race on here and discovered I had bursitis in my hip which took months of therapy, I was so motivated that I kept re-injuring myself and not resting, Finally I learnt my lesson and took up other sports such as Aquacise.

I attended a beginning to fitness group, full of mostly old people who had suffered injury lol, but stuck with it, and found an opportunity for an affordable student-personal trainer.
I met Floss and he was something else alright! Age 51, the most energy I've met in anyone in my life. He somehow.. found a focus in me, that loved to do bootcamp and box... that was happy enough to set bigger goals and I did the 5k pegasus fun run (had to walk it tho) I then set my goals for a triathlon.
in November he did a report on me as his most improved client (I think he had about 10 or 15) and that felt nice... to reward me he didn't charge me anymore. On finishing his class he flew over to Austria to do his ski season teaching - and sold me his mountain bike, I've only been on it a couple times but it is a DREAM bike. I love it.
I used to mountain bike in my teenage years.

So as I head into 2013.
I've decided not to do the triathlon as I still am so very new to swimming, I can only do 4 strokes.. not 8 lengths the race requires heh. But I am going to join the gym, and take a boxing class. (Jacki.. Thurs 9am!) And Floss emailed yesterday he will be back in 5 months and want's to boot camp with me again.. hehe

I'd love to do the mud sweat and tears race this year :)
I suspect I am a girl who likes to race and compete.... Not sure yet.

But one thing I Really love about working out...
Is that it taps into a strength I have inside :)

    Thanks for the support 1crazydog :)

    4kgs down.
    feeling pleased that although i didnt get into ketosis, i now have new jeans.
    in summary of my blog post i wrote today, i am now going to try cyclical fasting and carb up, lead by my body's cues, i'll have to listen to it closely, - preceding this an aggressive fast to get into ketosis with blood markers measured. :)

    I wanna hit 86! (kilo)
