Toot my own horn! And get motivated again.
This picture was taken last March and I hate it. This is the first time anyone has seen it.
This is my before picture
I can't remember ever taking a picture in my swimsuit that I didn't delete from my camera!
I do have to say my arms look great!
As most of you know I have been working really hard to loose wight and eat healthy so that I don't get all the diseses that go along with being over weight. This really started when I was filling out paper work at the doctor for Madisen and realized how many things I had to check off that her relatives have. Things like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, cancer! SCARY!! I decide that if I don't set the example and instill in my kids a love of exercising an eating healthy they could end up battling their weight along with all the things listed above. So here what I am doing.
I guess first I will spill my guts an tell you what I weighed when I started back in August....178 pounds. Now for some people this is nothing but being that I am all of about 5' 2" this is alot of extra fat on my body. My goal is to get down to a size 6 or 125 pounds. I have been doing Jazzercise since August and I LOVE IT! It is my new drug. I need my fix every week. I started out going two days a week and love it so much that I am also taking the night class two days a week. If you are looking for something you can do and love this is my recommendation. I pay for it up front so that I feel like even if I am tired one day if I don't go I have just wasted that money. Most of our rec centers in Henderson have classes and though the other instructors are good we definently have the best one at Black Mountain. I am down to 135 pounds and have not been eating what I should through the holidays. But with working out I have been able to eat whatever and maintain my weight loss just by continuing to exercise.
So that is my plug to find a Jazzercise class and fall in love with it!
