It is time for me to tame the fat as it has gotten out of control. This page will describe my quest for thinspiration. I used to be slim, although I didn't believe it at the time. I was even anorexic at one point & would try to throw up if I felt I ate too much. Now, I am obese & I am ready to lose the weight.

I'm not sure what my weight was at the start of my weight loss because at 1 point I didn't have access to a weighing scale (mine broke down) but when I weighed myself last, I was 206lbs but I believe I was more than that when I started this process because my clothes (UK size 16/18) where a much tighter fit than when I was at 206. Maybe I was over 210...OMG!!

I went to a type of bootcamp where I lost some weight but I was only eating 2 times a day. I didn't do much exercise but when I came back, my clothes where a lot looser. But, then after a few weeks, the clothes started to tighten up again & I guess something just clicked in my head, it was time to lose the weight in a healthy, slow manner. I didn't want to lose the weight by starving or depriving myself because if I just ate again, I would put the weight back on again. This is the whole reason why I am at this weight.

So, I got a weighing scale & joined the gym & now I am on my way to slim. Come join me on my quest to discover my inner lion. I'm a woman, hear me roar!!!

Mini goal: 180lbs
Happy goal- 154lbs
Ultimate goal: 140lbs (my highest weight at secondary school- when I was this weight I felt so fat, now I would give anything to weigh this much)

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. And YES! She really did whine to my husband about not making plans with me anymore and it's up to me if I want to hang out. I call it tattling because that's kind of what it felt like. emoticon

    I saw your question on the Rookie Running Group huddle wall - Yes, you will be able to run for 30 minutes someday, probably sooner than you think! I see you're doing C25K. I didn't follow that, but I have a friend who did and she's up and running for a half hour now. I used to never even be able to run for 5 minutes (and really, about 2 minutes used to be my max), but now I can run for 6 miles in 1 hour. It's taken since the beginning of January to work up to that, but I'm doing something that I never thought I could do and you certainly can too!!

    Hey Staci, Thanks for taking the time to read my Zumba blog. If you haven't tried it and you like music...give it a whirl. Lots of fitness places will give you a 7 day free pass which would allow you to try a few classes. Or some of the videos named in the member posting by members of the Zumba team may give you some ideas of either you tube or DVD's you can purchase to do at home. But I will tell you...home can not compare to the energy and dynamics the class setting has to offer! Get your dancing shoes out and try it! It is a great mood lifter too. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
    However it has proved one thing to me – that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!
