Why I Got Started
dot

I decided to change my body because I was tired of being fat and unhappy. I hated having my picture taken. I got started because of two things. First, my husband started working out again and losing weight. Secondly, I loved watching The Biggest Loser and was inspired to lose my weight as the contestants had.

How I Did It
dot

I started by tracking my food and changing my food choices. Also, I started walking three times per day five days per week. By May 2008, I lost 16 pounds. I was excited to hear of a new gym opening in my town that offered all the amenities I was used to in larger cities so I joined.

I started training with light weights three times per week. I continued to walk 30-60 minutes and eat clean. I trained with weights 3-4 times per week and gradually added weight and changed my training program every 6-8 weeks. By January 2009 I weighed 126 pounds and wore a size 6, (when I started I wore a size 12).

I had a setback in February 2009 when I started having knee pain. It turned out that I had fractured my knee cap when I slipped and fell on my knee back in October of 2008. I was put in a brace and could not train legs or do cardio for 8 weeks. I continued to train upper body. Once cleared by the doctor, I resumed training.

Tips For Others
dot

First, it is never too late to start and make a U-turn toward better health. Start out small and build. Take baby steps. Track your food and add cardio, such as walking. Then, when you start lifting, use light weights and concentrate on your form.

Give your ligaments and tendons time to adapt. Muscles adapt faster so if you go too heavy too fast you risk injury. Lastly, dieting doesn't have to be boring. Check out my blogs for some great recipes like perfect turkey burgers, two bean hummus and much more.
