My Transformation

I made the decision to begin my weight loss journey after I became “sick and tired of being sick and tired” of feeling bad about my weight. My energy level was low and I wanted to have a healthier, happier lifestyle. There were so many personal struggles in my every day life because I was overweight. “I hated having my picture taken, finding the right guy to date was like finding a needle in a haystack, and I just felt older than my years.” Refusing to continue in my old ways, I started working out at the local YMCA and started to see the pounds dropping. I lost 60 pounds and have built a lot of muscle and pretty much changed my body composition. While working out I felt my body changing, I had more energy and soon was able to buy clothes that I wanted to wear—not just what fit or was comfortable for my size. Seeing these results motivates me to keep working hard to continue to my body transformation success. “I lost over 4 clothing sizes and have given at least a dozen huge garbage bags full of clothes to charity.” My initial fitness goals have come and gone long ago but I still continue to strive to the be the best I can be. I am constantly trying new challenges and pushing myself harder to reach new fitness. Greatest challenge/struggle: Breaking plateaus. What has been most positive about your weight loss journey: Being told by others that I have inspired and motivated them to begin their own journey into a healthier lifestyle. Top tips for readers and favorite exercises: Variety, variety, variety. Don’t let yourself get bored with your workouts. Step outside of the box and try something new and fun. I did this by adding dance into my fitness routine.
