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 | Fat to Fit!January of 2012 started off with me being over weight and smoking over a pack of cigarettes a day. I couldnt breathe and was very uncomfortable being at my heaviest weight coming in at 262 lbs and a Size 24/26! I felt like I needed a full change in my left if I wanted to see my children graduate and be able to do things with them without being embarrassed of myself. First thing I threw out the cigarettes the 1st week of January. Thinking that I was going to gain even more weight inspired me to start thinking about what I was eating and how much I was eating. I have tried every kind of diet known to man and did not want to pay someone to help me or take diet pills. I wanted to defeat this on my own. So, on April 28th I decided the time is NOW! I started watching my calories and doing a little walking (that was all I could do at the time). I slowly started to pickup my exercise to a little jogging when I could. I bought me an elliptical and stationary bike to use. After about 20 lbs, I thought you know I can do this, so I signed up for a 5k determined that I will make it whether I ran it or walked it. As the time approached for the race, I was still weighing in at 228 lbs! I completed the race coming in at a time of 39:41, I was overwhelmed with joy knowing that I CAN and WILL do this!! As the months passed on and the weight slowly coming off, I have completed many 5k races, placing 1st place in my age division several times I am now running 5k races completing them in about 30 min. I competed in my 1st Duathlon Challenge back in Sept, and came in 2nd in my age division!
It is now December 27th….8 months later and I am down 84 lbs and a Size 12! I still have about 25 more to go before I reach my goal weight. I have signed up to run my first 1/2 Marathon in March and hopefully be able to complete a Full Marathon before the end of 2013! Life is amazing now to me and I enjoy getting out, feeling good about myself and enjoying life to the fullest!
