On my way to a healthier lifestyle

I've been trying to lose weight for a while but have been unsuccessful. However, being part of the seasonal challenges has helped me develop new, healthier habits and I'm a stronger person for it.

A friend recently introduced me to zumba and I fell in love with it! I've worked hard in class since I began to consistently attend several months ago. I haven't lost weight but my endurance has significantly improved and that's a sign of progress. It helps that the instructor is ...
I've been trying to lose weight for a while but have been unsuccessful. However, being part of the seasonal challenges has helped me develop new, healthier habits and I'm a stronger person for it.

A friend recently introduced me to zumba and I fell in love with it! I've worked hard in class since I began to consistently attend several months ago. I haven't lost weight but my endurance has significantly improved and that's a sign of progress. It helps that the instructor is absolutely amazing! She's very encouraging and she has an infectiously bubbly personality. I believe this helps me to work hard and do my very best.

I continuously struggle with portion control (my biggest hurdle) but it's very slowly getting easier. I want to lose weight to become more confident in myself and build my social network.


I want to lose the extra fluff because I want to:

1. Become healthier.
2. Be more energetic.
3. Avoid becoming diabetic.
4. Avoid heart disease and the complications that go with it.
5. Become more confident in myself.
6. Be able to buy cute clothes and look good in them.
7. Have a wardrobe I will be proud to show off!
8. More easily do everyday tasks.
9. More easily do things that are hindered by my weight (and not be out of breath!).
10. Be around for a long time for my nieces and nephew!

AND last but NOT least-----

I want to lose weight so I can feel more comfortable in my skin, enjoy living life again and become more confident!


I enjoy being part of the SP community because I've learned new habits and have made them lifelong habits, not just short term goals. I've learned that consistency is the key to success. I will commit myself to build upon the habits I've formed to increase my chances of success.

My Goals:
I want to lose the excess weight to become healthier and more energetic. I want to be a positive role model for my nieces and nephew.

My Program:
I take zumba classes 3 times each week and walk to the train station when I can - usually at least 4 days each week. I'm lucky to live close enough that I can walk to and from the train station, which is how I get to work.

I drink plenty of water daily and have made healthier eating a habit. However, I struggle with portion control. I need to retrain my brain what portion sizes look like and become more diligent about doing so.

Personal Information:
I live along the eastern seaboard. I enjoy the outdoors and get outside as much as I can.
