Week 52 Obese to Fit (1 Year Milestone!)

Wow!  It’s been a whole year since I’ve started this quest to live an active and healthy lifestyle.  I love it!  I have a better outlook on life and continue to focus on staying healthy.  I’ve run and worked out three times a week for an entire year.  I have had to take a few days off due to being hospitalized but overall, I’ve bounced back and continue to put one foot in front of the other.  I know you can do the same because if I can do it, you can most definitely do it.

Weight stats:

  • Starting weight: 240 lbs
  • First year weight: 205 lbs (lost 35 lbs – avg. 3 lbs per month, .75 lbs per week)

This has been a challenging year.  Being separated again, leaving a job, being a single parent to two wonderful children, caring for my aging dad, and just managing the day to day activities of my entire family.  I continue to improve my health and work through the medical issues and I know that these will all be resolved because we’re super positive and building on that momentum.  If you’ve been following the blog, you can do the same thing that I’ve done.  Just put one foot in front of the other and show up to the gym even when you don’t feel like working out.  You can do it!
