I don’t have a spectacular story. I was skinny all through school had 2 kids, got fat, went through a divorce, got skinny, and then met my current husband. Became happy and got fat again. The extreme weight gain so fast was always partly because of my PCOS and Endometriosis. If my food intake was bad the weight came back with a vengeance. So, then came the high blood pressure, the pre-diabetic talk, the absolute miserable symptoms for shark week, etc. I finally said no more! Started walking on my lunch breaks, that turned into running, and I finally got my husband on board. We changed our entire eating habits, worked hard in the kitchen and that made us work hard outside the kitchen. Between the both of us we have lost over 80lbs. We both couldn’t run a full mile a year ago. This year we have done 2 sprint triathlons, a half marathon, a 7 mile trail run, a few 5ks, and biked 145 miles across SC in 3 days on our bicycles. My body has changed in so many ways but most importantly, I’ve learned to love myself. Not give a damn what anyone else thinks and keep pushing to my goals.
