I’ve known Christy since before high school, and we reconnected a couple of years ago on social media. I’ve seen her progress continue, all because of her amazing dedication to her goal!
1. Why did you decide to lose weight/change your lifestyle? (Any and all
In August 2013, I decided I wanted more out of life. I wanted to feel better, have more energy and have more confidence in myself. I was tired of coming home after work everyday and taking a nap.
2. What exercise did you do? (List everything)
I started out walking in September. I added a community ed exercise class (it included step aerobics, kick boxing and strength training) in October. I joined a gym in November that offers body pump and Zumba.
3. How did you change your eating habits?
I use my fitness pal to track my calorie intake. I cut out soda’s all together. I only eat red meat every once in awhile. I either eat baked tilapia or chicken and sliced turkey. I have increased my vegetable and fruit intake. I eat breakfast now and I have added snacks to my day.
4. Did you use any nutritional supplements?
The only thing that I have used is Spark. I started using that about two months ago.
5. Did you have support? (Group, friend, online community, etc.)
Yes, all of my family and friends have been very supportive. I also follow many pages on FB.
6. What do you feel is the top thing you’ve gotten out of your journey?
Not to give up on your dream because of a few unhealthy decisions or days.
7. What is your next goal?
I still have a ways to go so I just want to keep up my steady pace and boost my strength training as I go.
