Fat to fit

My story:

2008-Started Sparkpeople and in 6 months was the healthiest. lightest and thinnest I've been in my whole life (even moreso than when I was a college swimmer!)

2010-Lots of life changes including transitioning from a stand-up active job to a sit-down office job with a culture of bad food and alcohol. Gained about 5kg back of what I had lost.

My story:

2008-Started Sparkpeople and in 6 months was the healthiest. lightest and thinnest I've been in my whole life (even moreso than when I was a college swimmer!)

2010-Lots of life changes including transitioning from a stand-up active job to a sit-down office job with a culture of bad food and alcohol. Gained about 5kg back of what I had lost.

2011- Lost a little bit of weight and got married to a wonderful man. Had a lot of stressed including the Christchurch earthquake to contend with but still stayed semi-fit.

2012- Weight went up a bit more, but I still felt ok about myself and I ran a half marathon on my birthday.

Jan-Mar 2013- Continued to ignore the true problems that was my constant weight gain and ate what I wanted, when I wanted it. Exercised little, hurt my back I was so unfit= downward spiral and excuses.

April 2013- Started getting help from a trainer who focuses on balancing the body out, back is healed, started to swim, run and bike again.

April 27, 2013- Weighed myself and found that I am now the heaviest I have been in my entire life at 79KG. Just below 80KG!!! Decided to take some "before" photos. Shocked at what I saw in the pictures. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten, how big I had become and how close to obese I looked. My friend said I was brave to take the pictures, but had I not, I would have continued to think that I was much healthier and fitter than I really am.

Now that I can actually see it I have to admit it to myself. I am fat. And I am not happy about it. I am not proud of it. I am embarrassed and I do not want to be the girl in the pictures anymore.

These photos were a wake up call and I am now ready to re-embark on the journey I started back in 2008---to be healthy for the rest of my life in order to have confidence, feel beautiful and enjoy a long life full of energy and happiness.

I cannot wait to post my after photos! Coming SOON!

Welcome to the Binghamton Area Losers!

So pleased you've joined our local SparkTeam! I know what you mean about never giving up...been there, done that and STILL doing that!

Taking care of ourselves ROCKS!

Looking forward to having you share your SPARK with us! We had a lovely meet 'n greet at at Dorchester Park this past summer...kayaking, walking, passing a dish and great conversation as we got to know each other and put "faces" to our names! In Feb. we enjoyed a meet 'n greet at the Whole In The Wall and shared some conversation yet again!

We're always looking for ideas and inspirations for such get-togethers. We hope to have a pot-luck picnic at Hickories Park this summer!

Don, Co-Leader of Binghamton Area Losers
