Around March 2012, I started working out. I was self conscious (kinda still am…). My weight was considered obese (I was around 175lbs, I believe), especially due to my height (I’m 5 feet tall.)
I’ve come a really long way from what I used to be. I’m still working on shedding these last 20-30 lbs. My goal weight is to be around 105-110lbs. (Which is typical for someone who is 5 feet tall.) I’m not doing it to be “skinny.” I’m doing it so I’m healthy.
I don’t want anything more than to be healthy. I’ve always been fat and just always fat. I used to do fad diets to try to lose weight quick. I’ve realized that most of my problems are because I really unhealthy foods. It’s also because I don’t exercise enough.
It was hard, especially giving up a lot of sugary sweets that I love. I run, I don’t have trouble breathing after 10 minutes like I used to. I feel energetic and awesome.
I’m ready to get over this obesity battle I’ve dealt with all my life and get on track and be healthy.
Progress pictures always motivate me even more.
