85 lbs and Half Marathon later

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 | 85 lbs and Half Marathon laterAfter struggling with my weight throughout my early 20’s I decided in January that 2012 would finally be my year of change.

I joined a gym and actually used my membership, in years past I guess I thought just paying for the membership would help me lose the weight. I also focused on what I was eating and why I was eating it.

I often ate because I was bored and really not because I was hungry. Going to the gym definitely got rid of that boredom! After 5 months of eating right and going to the gym daily I had lost 50 lbs and I was so proud of what I had accomplished, but I knew I still had a lot of work to do.

I decided to take on a challenge that I never thought possible, a half marathon! After 3 months of training I ran my first half marathon on December 9, 2012 and it felt absolutely amazing to cross that finish line 85 lbs lighter than I was a year ago! I’m now training for my next half marathon in March 2013!

I know if I can do it anyone can do it! It just takes believing in yourself, you have more willpower than you think!
