What are your fitness/health goals? I just started today- my wt goal is to lose 40 lbs. I am 5'2" and 155 lbs. I want to feel good in "real clothes" and just have higher over all self esteem
What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I taught a photography class to some 4th and 5th graders. One of the kids showed me a picture he had taken during the class- and I looked absolutely huge in it!
What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? binge eating- self doubt
What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? consistency, consistency, and consistency!! I need to stick to my exercise program no matter what. I tend to only exercise when I am dieting
(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? : LOL-- no one really. I just want to make my hubby proud. I want him to be able to say-- "that one is MY wife"
What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? I just can't wait until I can go shopping and buy what I like- and not what will hide my big butt and my tummy. I can't wait until everything I try on looks good again!
