Cool I wanna do a cartwheel

My whole life I have been overweight! I know this sounds really funny but I have always wanted to do a cartwheel. I am 21 yrs old and I have been to afraid to fall so many times I have never done a cartwheel. I have always been afraid I couldnt carry my own weight. Now I plan to take the rest of this weight off. I WILL DO THAT CARTWHEEL. I am going to practice and practice and by the eld of this journey I will do a cartwheel!!!.lol

Another mini goal is to get to 220 with diet and exercise of course hopefully before the end of this month.

Oh my God! This is totally one of my goals too! I plan on asking my trainer about it and getting him on exercises that will help me - when I ask him, I'll post back here so we can work on this together!

My other fitness goal is a pull-up...but thats going to take quite a bit longer.

Make sure you stretch properly first!!! I did a cartwheel a few years back just to prove I could still do it, and I pulled something on the inside of my thigh--hurt like the dickens for a week! Anyway, I hope you do your cartwheel!!!

I used to be able to do a cartwheel and a backbend too. I am hoping once I get down in weight I can do them again. Here's hoping you will too.

On the brighter side I have been working on stretching and I can touch my toes

Lol that is so funny I've always wanted to do a cartwheel too. I'm so suprised other people posted this because it always seemed so silly to me that I really wanted to be able to do a cartwheel but I feel better now that I'm not alone. I hope that we will all be able to do cartwheels soon!

dautey, I used to love to do cartwheels when I was young. I'm afraid to try them now. I also loved to stand on my head (for some odd reason). I tried that again a few yrs. ago and thought I was about to break my Neck. LOL.All the blood rushed to my head and I had a massive headache. Guess I'll have to stick to walking, it seems more suited for me now. LOL


^^ My new before and current photos! ^^

I don't think I could do a cartwheel now if I tried... but only because I took Judo for several years, and I think I would automatically collapse into the diving roll we did in that class. It's an automatically ingrained response now.
