That is great!!!! Congratulations on that weight loss it’s amaizing! I’m on the other hand trying to gain some weight and muscle mass and so far I’m doing good. I’ve gained 5 lbs in the last 3 months. It’s very hard for me to gain (I’m sure I will get tons of :O here ). Keep up the great work!

@FutureMrs86: Awesome!!! I have lost about 27 lbs in the past two months from doing lots and lots of cardio and being sensible and more responsible about my eating habits. I hit my highest weight ever a few months back and I just decided enough was enough. My wedding is not until september 20 2013 but it was in the back of my mind that dress shopping will happen come years end. Besides all that, I wanted to be healthy and enjoy life. No matter how comfortable you are in your own skin, being overweight limits your life and makes normal things that might be super fun seem like a real big hassle or sometimes situations that you would otherwise look forward to, you dread. I was at the point where I was afraid if I would comfortably fit in smaller chairs or if I was going to get out of breath walking to our seats at a MLB game, standing at the park with my son was so much harder than it should have been, let alone actually running with him and getting on the playsets. Now I don’t dread any kind of activity. I look forward to it and I am way more confident in my own abilities. Im not at the point yet where I look forward to seeing people I have not seen in a long time because I am still bigger than I was in the past and it will still feel bad to see them and have them possibly think “wow she gained a lot of weight” but im getting closer to feeling good about those possible encounters. No matter what, so far Im doing great and am so committed to reaching the goals I have set for myself. πŸ™‚ congrats on your progress so far! it really is an amazing feeling!

 

@couawilou: Actually, I have a couple cousins who really struggle with being underweight. They have just as hard of a time gaining as I do losing. Gaining muscle mass is even a challenge for them. And this is not for a lack of eating or anything, they eat well and I know this for a fact. So you wont get the :O from me because I do know that gaining weight can be a challenge for some. We all have our battles ya know? keep at it and im sure you will continue to see results πŸ™‚

That’s so awesome! I don’t think I’d have the diligence to wake up at 4 am. I will give a word of caution, if your body isn’t used to working out so much PLEASE be careful – I started doing squats/running and wound up developing piriformis syndrome which is basically sciatica only it’s caused by a tiny muscle in your butt. I haven’t been able to exercise since the beginning of March and it’s still not gone, it’s not very fun and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy. It’s an overuse injury caused by repititive motion and usually happens to women and people whose glutes aren’t as developed (or they overpronate) as they need to be so that little muscle takes over and then starts having spasms which presses on the sciatic nerve.

@FutureMrs86:  Congratulations on the weight loss! Can you share your diet tips with us? I always like to hear what others are eating, it gives me a lot of good ideas. I’d like to lose 10-15lbs before my wedding, fortunately I have a treadmill at home so that helps a lot. I’m thinking about busting out my Insanity workout DVD’s again…ugh.

 

PS – we are date twins! Wink
