Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
Frustrated, Fat and Fed up
Unrecognizable I had gotten lost in a pool of unhappiness ongoing health problems that lead to deep depression and self hate, September 14th 2011 marks the year when I choose ME I put down the excuses and began what I now call my life! At 357lbs I had let my food obsession get out of control , I never had a passion for anything until I found my way thru fitnesss with 2 small children to live for I am down a total of 121 lbs and counting! I live for new ways of conquering my fitness goals Initially I used weight watchers online that helped me control my portions as I was a fast food junkie and that program allowed me to still have it in moderation until eventually I phased it out completely. Then incorporating that with the curves program 30 min 3 times a week, lean meats good carbs, fruits and veggies .
The biggest help was a simple equation sugar =fat I kept my sugar low and my foods clean limiting processed and high sodium foods! As I’m still trying to loose I’m on a high protein regimen I work out 5 days alternating cardio, strength and conditioning at the gym
I have so many influences to my success but mostly I never give up there's no finish line I just get better!
