My 90 Day Adventure (pic heavy)

dixiewhiskey Posts: 3,333 Member
The 90 days has not been a grueling task or just about "weight loss" or even about my transformation but about growth as an individual. Growth as a young adult, mother of two children and professional who often used her life (and everyone else in it) as an excuse not to engage in a exercise and eat right. I had started before, in fact, many times over the years when I weighed less but was never able to keep going because I gave up. I didn't understand proper nutrition and viewed exercise as a boring, one-way street.

This time around was different - I ate over 1600 calories a day instead of 1200 (now eating 2100 mid March), experimented with various at home workout videos and when I was ready (February), joined the YMCA. I take part in their fitness classes atleast 4x a week which keep me entertained and challenged. I even stepped foot in the lifting area of my gym in March, usually occupied by men and was an area I had been incredibly scared of.

Although I have accomplished a lot in 90 days, the go-getter in me has set more goals set to keep me busy. I am just here to share what I've gone through in hopes that anyone out there who was the "old me" will become inspired and believe that they, too, can accomplish anything they put their minds too.

    I'm so excited for you!! You really hit the nail on the head. It's not just about weight loss. It's about growing up a little and taking charge of life! And you've done it... AWESOMELY!!! Congrats. I'm gonna nerd out and quote Jillian Michaels- "Health is the platform you build the rest of your life on." You've got a pretty awesome platform!
  • Thats awesome! Thanks for sharing!:smile:

    Holy Cow! That is the difference that 14 pounds made for you? You are a ROCK STAR! Nice job! :) Thanks for the pictures, measurements and story-line. They all provided different points of information and facts about eating/exercising. Keep it up, you are doing so well.

    Thank you all for reading, for the feedback and encouragement!! :)

    I never would have thought 14lbs lost would make such a difference but it did. There are a lot of stories here that talk about larger amounts of lbs lost but that never should be an primary indication of success.

    I focused a lot on weight training then moved to heavy lifting. This month was only a 3 lb loss but it's been slow and steady!
    One of the things I've learned here is patience. it hasn't really been one of my strongpoints but I've learned to be patient with my body and give it time to change.
