My Weight Loss

As this is my first blog, I wanted to share my personal journey with you to help you understand that you are not alone in your pursuits to lose weight, get fit and live healthy. My journey started almost three years ago. I was overweight and depressed. The pounds added from having two children, not exercising, and not eating a balanced diet really took its toll on me. When I finally looked in the mirror and did not recognize myself, I knew things had to change.

I started out by conducting research on nutrition and slowly started to change my diet. Within a week or two, I started to work out in the privacy of my home. I was just too ashamed to go to the gym and for people to see how overweight I was. As time passed, I started to have more energy, feel better, and the depression started to subside. I became more motivated and determined as each day passed.

When my journey began I was in a size fourteen, I am now in a size zero. You may think to yourself, well a size 14 isn’t that bad. For my height and body build, I am extremely petite, it was a bad thing. I was considered borderline obese. I now feel like I am in high school again and I truly have no limitations.

Becoming healthy has become so much of a passion for me that I decided to get certified in personal training to help others accomplish their goals as well. I have learned so much over the past three years that I feel it is my duty to share my knowledge with others. I can honestly say to my readers, “I have been there and bought the t-shirt.”

So until my next post, which will be on nutrition, ….LIVE STRONG. LIVE HEALTHY.

This is a great post! I can certainly relate to this whenever I tell myself that I need to get off that couch and start exercising! It’s difficult since I’m working full time and going to school full time, when I do get home from work, I have to immediately start my homework. I keep telling myself that once school is over, I will sign up for gym. Well, that time has come since this is the last week of school for me!



Thank you Chin! Yes you will definitely have time to go to the gym or workout from home now! NO EXCUSES!! 🙂
