Every 4-6 months, I get on a fitness kick. That involves eating healthy and working out. The goal is to lose weight. It’s been very successful for me a few times. The first time was in 2010 when in a 3 month period I lost 30-35 pounds. That jump-started a whole new life for me with losing about 110 pounds. From there I worked out and shrank to my lowest weight. I was around 160-165, standing 5’9. Good Times! I wore little clothing but I still had the loose skin on my stomach, upper arms, and inner thigh.
I maintained for a few years until lower back surgery in 2012 slowed me down for another year or so. It’s such a cycle and such an early cycle for a 24 year old. I was able to get back into the groove in 2013 by losing some more weight after the surgery’s gain. Then again, I gained again after letting work become my priority.
It’s 2015 and I’ve started again. Yay! Finally, I feel like i’m ready to jump-start my fitness life again. I am currently down 6 pounds since two weeks with a goal of losing 80 pounds. That seems like such a big number but it’s not really. Let’s see how far I can get.
