Here is my story.
I've always been on the more heavy side. Overweight. Everyone has called me "fat". I decided to lose the weight after high school because I got tired of feeling how I felt. So I pursued a vegan diet in which I lost about 45+lbs. that was my lifestyle. I would go jogging and cycling in occasions but no gym. Then I met my sons father and I gave up my lifestyle. After my son I weighed myself one day at my moms in which I weighed as much as when I was pregnant. I went back home super sad and determined. I weighed 184lbs at 5'5". I am down to 174lbs at the moment but I still want to lose 50lbs to get to 124lbs. Difference this time is that I have a one year old and I want him growing up with an example of fitness and health. No one in my family was ever an example. I want to be a role model not for a year or two but for a lifetime. He's my new motivation aside from myself. I want this for me. Want to feel great and be that fit mom lol

    I want to be able to ride a horse with my six year old, and enjoy it with her, and I want to be able to enjoy life more, and wear nice clothes and not feel so paranoid about how I look anymore

    I have some mobility issues that would be improved if I were lighter, plus I am turning 50 this year. I think that getting more fit and more healthy would be a great gift to myself!
