When I begin the segment of Get Moving Monday's it was weird even thinking about taking my weight loss public. I have to say I'm thankful that I have been able to inspire other people to get out the door everyday and get moving.
Through Get Moving Monday's, I learned the importance of proper nutrition and exercise. Plus, I found a new love in spinning classes. I can honestly tell you from the very beginning it was not easy.
There were days I wanted to give-up and say I quit, but through the help of my family, friends, and co-workers. They encouraged me along the way.
I have to say the most shocking part of this journey was the day I stepped on the scale to find out I weighed 250 pounds. My body mass index was 42.4. Right now, I am at 235 pounds. My body fat percentage has went from 42.4 to now 30.2.
So I have to say even though I haven't met my goal yet. I have a greater appreciation for myself and health as I move forward to new and healthier me.
Right now, I am going to continue exercising and eating healthier to get closer to my goal.
