My Story

Healthier_MeHealthier_Me Member Posts: 5,600 Member Member Posts: 5,600 Member
I copied & pasted what's on my profile :laugh:
I'm a bit lazy to type right now.

I've been battling with my weight ever since I got pregnant with my first child (7 years ago). I am finally at a healthy point in my life. Ever since I began using this website to lose weight, my asthma has been under control and I am so thankful. I have reached my weight goal of 125 pounds and have lost a few more... have been maintaining for 3 months so far!

I can finally run without feeling queazy, dizzy or like I'm about to die (a bit dramatic I know :sad: )
I am falling in love with my body and will be wearing a swimsuit for the very first time in I don't know how long... 20something years maybe?? A bit scared, nervous, excited... but I will do it and I know all of my MFPers will be cheering me on.

Losing weight using the MFP tools is possible!!!!
Eat your calories... INCLUDING THE CALORIES YOU BURN DURING EXERCISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Totally AWESOME....my asthma has been more controllable TOO! Whew.... (Ex + eR +Rc= WL(2) = EB)= SSe

    Excercise + eating RIGHT+ Reduced calories = Weight Loss (twice as much than eating right alone)= Easier BREATHING.....and potential Swimsuit Season excitement!

    Way to go.....the way I figure it ...is when I go to the supermarket, I look at those 15 pound sack of taters and think....girl! You are carrying those "sacks" around with YOU! (You think I'd be in better shape due to that!:laugh: )

    You are truly inspirational....and you kiddo's are cuties!:smile:

    Thank you Amy:bigsmile:
    I remember when I first sent you a message about how inspired I was after I read your profile.
    I'm just thankful to have had so many wonderful people by my side.

    I don't have any secrets.
    All I know is that I had to keep going. Made sure I ate ALL my calories and stepped up my exercise.
