I’m down 50 pounds from my heaviest weight. I am not the thinnest that I’ve ever been but these days, as a 50-something, I am trying to focus on being healthy as opposed to being skinny.
Still, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t pleased with my progress.
At my heaviest I couldn’t run one minute without getting completely winded. Starting out slow and using a a couch-to-5K program I completed my first race six months after I began losing weight.
Then a Title Boxing Club opened in my hometown. I was invited to try a free class by a friend and I was hooked. The trainer pictured with me pushes me to try my hardest and do my best. As all the trainers do.
This past Saturday I participated in a 3 Hour Endurance Challenge. Our team of 5 ranged in age from 52 years-old to 14 years-old. We didn’t win but we got it done and had fun doing it. I am second from the right. The young man to my right is my 14 year-old son, Ben.
Losing 50 pounds before I turned 50 – Jubilance!
Keeping it off – Triumph!
Connecting with my son through working out – Joy & Pride!
Being physically healthy and fit – VICTORY!
