OK, so two years ago I had a wake-up moment and realized that I was huge, fat, obese, unhealthy and unhappy. I decided to change my life, to become the healthy person I have wanted to be, felt that I should be, and want to be for my children as they grow.
So, in January of 2009, I began my personal journey of weight loss and body transformation, as well as with changing my diet and my lifestyle habits. I topped the scale back then at nearly 290lbs!!! Today, I weigh in at 199lbs!!! :-)
This past year, I have had my body composition done a couple of times, both to see where I was at, and also to track my progress along the way. I really wish I had done my body comp back when I first started, but it just never crossed my mind back them...maybe because I knew just how bad the numbers were! So today, with marking this month as two years into my new life of being healthy and fit and happy, I had my body comp done again, to see where I am at, and also to help me establish some goals for this upcoming year ahead.
As of today, my total body weight is 199lbs. My lean body mass is 175lbs. My fat weight is 24lbs. My body fat percentage is now at 11.9%
I am quite happy with my results, and realize that with this I have already reached one of my goals that I made for myself for this year, to be at or less than 12% body fat. :-)
With my new lease on life, new outlook on health, and new body that allows me to do so very much more... I am thoroughly looking forward to a great year of fun and fitness with my family!!! :-)
