I've recently married the man of my dreams in my dream location. So why am I not on cloud 9? I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life. I would like to start a family one day but this body can barely handle my weight let alone pregnacy weight. I've stressed my body out it affects my health in so many ways. Diabetic. Acid reflux. Sleeping/breathing problems. Sore feet. well you get the picture. I've tried to lose weight a hundred times before, but never got very far before I fell off the wagon again. My husband says he loves me just the way I am, but I don't. So I need to change. And the time is now! It's going to happen!
WOW! So much has changed since I first filled this out! First off, I'm now divorced (Jan 2014). My primary goal is to love myself and be happy. I wasn't able to do that before. My health has improved so much. No more acid reflux, breathing/sleeping problems, or sore feet. Since about Aug 2013 I have been eating clean 90% of the time. This combined with lifting heavy weights and running has transformed my life. I'm rarely on here cause I don't feel I need to track calories when eating clean. I eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full. Balanced meals with vege and lean protein, whole grains when eating carbs. I do track my weight and BF% and try to encourage when I am on here. I have gone from a pant size 16/18 in Aug 2011 to now a 10/12 in May 2014.
Why I want to get in shape
Short term goal is I want to wear the shoes I bought for my wedding that didn't stay on my feet more than 20 min cause my feet couldn't handle my weight. Long term goal is to be a healthier me.
I surpassed my goal of wearing my shoes....LOL! Now too big and I walk out of them....
Still working on long term goal. I CAN say without a doubt though I truly am the healthiest me I have ever been. I am amazed at how much my mindset has changed from when I started this journey. Stick with it folks - YOU are worth it!
- Eliminating diabetes from my future.
- Fit Moms - I want to have the energy to play with my future children one day
