FITNESS UPDATE | Part I: Weight Loss & Exercise!

It’s been 7 months since I decided to make that change… I have always been generally a thin person. I first experienced weight gain right after I graduated college. What freshman 15? I gained the senior 30! I went from walking around the beautiful LSU campus everyday to sitting at a desk all day and eating whatever was in arms reach. So I packed on the pounds hitting about 174. There is virtually no photographic evidence of this, I hid from cameras at that time or I have burned them!

Over time I lost that weight, you know the typical heartbreak weight loss, stress weight loss, starving-myself-because-I-didn’t-know-any-better weight loss. Then, I hit the age of 30! While I have no quorums with getting older, my metabolism began to lose it’s gusto and dropping pounds became harder and harder. I would get in my phases of running for a few days or weeks but fall off and I still ate whatever I liked or what was misguidedly thought to be healthy. (Don’t worry, diet is the next part of this little mini series.)

So in December of 2014, I took the plunge and got a trainer, Jo (Total Body Anatomy, he’s the truth if you are looking for a trainer) and got to work on changing my health for the better. What started as just wanting to “tone up,” became a complete lifestyle change, a new learning of what my body was capable of and working to get in the best shape of my life. Imagine that after nearly 34 years on the is this here Earth. I’ve never been this fit or healthy. So, this is look at my weight loss so far and how I train to make it happen.
