I found a trainer who helped me for the first part of the journey. I also started doing Senior Cardio class, and I participated in Silver Sneaker classes at a Senior Center
What was your starting weight and what is your current weight?
My starting weight was 245.8 pounds and my current weight is 200.4 pounds. My height is 5’1″.
What did you start your journey?
I started my journey on June 12, 2018. In February 2019, I reached my current weight. Now, I have joined WW (Weight Watchers), and I continue to work out to achieve my final goal.
What advice would you like to share?
My advice is to stay focused and be your biggest encourager. Don’t throw in the towel. Just keep pushing yourself. Even when the scale doesn’t move, keep moving.
I worked out three days a week due to my Arthritis. Now I am up to 4 days, and I’m able to walk. I even do boot camp.
What is the biggest lesson you’ve learned?
I learned that it’s never too late to find your why. Only you (myself) can answer that question. The ability to walk again with my husband, who is 11 years my junior, is everything. I feel so healthy!
