Building a better me!

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow fitness pals!!!!! My name is Link and I am a 34 year old female. I have been morbidly obese my entire adult life. I started building a better me in January. I started out at 351 pounds. At the time of writting this I am now 266 pounds. I do weight watchers every day religiously and I go to the gym 4 days a week with a lifting workout followed by 20 minutes of cardio. I went from 2.6 speed with no elevation on the treadmill to 3.4 speed with 8 of elevation to maintain my target heart rate. I am excited to try jogging now. I anticipate I will need to repeat weeks over and over until I am ready to move on, but that is how I will improve. ( you got to start somewhere) Persistence and progress not perfection. My main challenge will be my activity induced asthma, but that's ok :) my body is learning to adapt to my activity and that doesn't happen over night, it takes time. I look foward to supporting one another and reading tips from and learning from you all!!

Your accomplishments thus far have been amazing!!! I have just joined today and I am looking forward to using the app to train for my first 5K in 90 days. I agree, persistence and progress is the key, not perfection. That is how I will be looking at it:)
