Why you ask. Well, April 1,2014 was m 45th birthday and it was on that day that I decided I needed to change my life in a drastic way. I was 219 lbs and not happy about it. So I changed. I changed in a big way. I stated attending a kickboxing class 5 days a week. I was sweating and sore and couldn't hardly do 1 push-up. But I kept going. I kept moving. I was going for walks I was trying to be an active person and the weight, well it didn't move. It just didn't move. So again it was time for another change.
In June I started with Isagenix and in a quick nutshell its 2 shakes a day only its much much more. Isagenix comes with a support group and the weight started moving. I was finally losing weight. Not by leaps and bounds but slowly a pound or 2 a week. I was feeling great and by September I was pretty proud of myself for still going to kickboxing 5 days a week. I decided I was going to become a runner. This was easier said than done but somehow someway I started to look forward to going out on runs. They were hard and I don't particularly LIKE running but my body craved it. It wants to be a runner.
All was going so well and I was getting cocky by running and doing kickboxing and not taking rest days and WAM! I get injured.... and not in a little way. I ended up in a cast. My first cast ever in my life. I tore my Achilles tendon. Let me tell you this is not pleasant and its a slow recovery. But I was good and did as the Dr ordered...sort of and I healed.
I am about to publish my before and after pic. I am down 45 lbs. I have about 30 more to go to reach my goal but I will get there or I won't. For the first time in my life I feel good about the way I look and its not about the pounds its about what I can do.
The beginning of something that would change my life. 219 lbs.
Sometime late fall.
I am still a work in progress and I have the rest of my life to go on this journey but I am more happy with myself than I have ever been. I am stronger than I knew!
