Check out Kristie's truly inspirational story!!
Before 335lbs...Work in Progress 237lbs. I
have always been overweight since Junior High School. That's when
school lunches were out, and junk food was in. I continued eating junk
for for lunch everyday all the way through High School. I
graduated weighing somewhere in the 285 range. Twenty years of up and
down 50 lbs, I was finally ready for a change. I have tried and failed
at most diets out there, never could stick to something that was the
right fit for me. I never was a fan of exercise either back in those
days...So what has changed now? I started eating healthy, stopped
drinking my calories, and I got involved with people who are on a
healthy path as well. Joined a fitness group, started to go back to the
gym I had been paying 5 years for now and stopped going after baby #3,
and I made myself a priority for a change. I have made myself
accountable, put myself out there on facebook, challenged myself and
others to get out there and get moving. I joined myfitnesspal and
runkeeper. I set goals, started walking, doing 5k's, and then on to
the gym. It has been 9 months exactly today I started my new healthy
lifestyle, not a diet, not a fad, no pills, no weight loss surgery, but
just being conscience of what goes in my mouth, and how much my body
needs to move to burn those calories. I am not where I want to be yet,
but so far from where I was and never will be again.
