50 Pounds in 5 Months – The Healthy Way

By  | 

Great success story! Read before and after fitness transformation stories from women and men who hit weight loss goals and got THAT BODY with training and meal prep. Find inspiration, motivation, and workout tips | 50 Pounds in 5 Months   The Healthy WayI am just beginning my journey but I thought I would post about my progress as an inspiration to others to get started. I’m a 37 year old, divorced, single mom who works full time and who is finally getting her act together for good!

Everyone needs something to push them over the edge – right? My engagement ended and I was pushed into a place where I had two choices – make things worse (cope with food, feel sorry for myself, get really depressed) or try to stay busy and focused on positive things. Whenever I got upset, I got up and took a walk. I was going to lose weight for the wedding – why not do it just for me?

First steps – getting active. I started walking, pilates, latin dance classes, yoga – anything I could reasonably afford and jam into my schedule. My 10 year old son has been cheering me on the whole way. He waits for me in the lobby as I shake my now smaller hips in my Zumba class every Saturday morning. From walking to jogging to beginning to train for a marathon! It’s crazy – I never thought I’d even attempt anything like this.

My eating habits have been totally revamped. I cut out most red meat and fast food. I load up on fruits, veggies and whole grains. I eat every 3 hours and increased my protein and fiber. I bought a food scale and I portion out what I am eating. I also track EVERYTHING that I eat so I can see how it adds up.

I am managing my stress better with being more active and adding yoga. I LOVE yoga and pilates. I can’t tell you how strong I have become.

I plan to keep you posted as I get into the best shape of my life. Share your stories and keep me motivated!

Thanks!
