Biggest accomplishment with fitness

 

I’ve been working out and trying to lose weight irregularly for the last 5 years. In that time, I have not only lost some weight but I’ve managed to lose the inches, which to me is far more important than the number on the scale. When I started getting serious about my health and fitness it was because we were getting ready to go on vacation and my shorts from the previous year didn’t fit anymore and I finally looked at myself and was unhappy with how I looked. My pant size kept increasing and I was quickly approaching a size 18. Right then and there I set a goal for myself to get back down to a size 10 pants size. I came close a couple of years ago but eventually stopped dieting and the weight came creeping back and I yo-yoed between a size 14 and a size 16. 

 

After my well lived in pair of pants got worn out and it was time to go pant shopping again, I was unhappy to discover the pant size I thought I was in didn’t fit anymore, I’m actually a size up. Disappointed in myself for letting the hard word I had accomplished go down the drain, it was time to get serious again about losing weight and keeping it off. Although I’m nowhere near my goal size, I’m happy with the progress I’ve seen. I have not dropped a pant size yet but my pants are loser. When I went pants shopping, I picked up 2 pairs and one of the pairs was a little too tight and didn’t do up but I bought them anyway as motivation to get into these pants. They were brand name, expensive jeans that looked brand new at a Thrift store at a price that I couldn’t pass up. 

 

Four weeks later and a couple of weeks using the Trim supplement along with the running I was finally able to fit into these jeans and comfortably too. I’m feeling great and loving the way my butt looks in jeans and leggings. My legs are getting toned and are starting to look slimmer. Gone are the days of having to buy XL lounge pants just to fit my large thighs. My transformation to date is my biggest accomplishment so far. I may not have lost any weight or inches but to me it’s about how I feel in my skin and I feel great.  It’s giving me the motivation to keep going and try new things.

  1. Mmm, this blog post is like somebody telling a story. I’m a published writer myself and I saw myself drawn into the story.

    Then you mentioned the Trim supplement and I came back to earth. This made your suggestion more interesting to me.

    Who hasn’t struggled to lose weight? Who hasn’t lost weight and picked itup again? It’s a perpetual battle.

    I will try your suggestion and see how it comes out. Thanks for this great post.

      Thanks. That’s what I’m trying to make this blog about, my story so people can relate and see whats working for me. If I sell product great but that’s my secondary focus. I want to inspire people to achieve their goals and part of that is telling whats worked and what hasn’t worked.

    Congratulations on your excellent progress so far! I love hearing success stories like this. People forget that fitness is a journey and it sounds like you have figured that out. I’ve been lifting weights for the better part of 20 years and still do not feel that I’ve reached my ideal body. Nothing feels better than progress though! Thank you for sharing and I’m excited to hear future updates on your journey!

      Thanks Dan! Do we ever feel like we will reach our ideal body? I think once we get to where we think we want to be and we realize we can get there we start to think bigger. Best of luck to you on your journey.

    Hi Stace, and thanks for sharing your story with us.
    You’ve inspired me to start something myself. I’m almost 59 and find that I’ve crept up over the years as well. There’s nothing more depressing than having to get new clothes each summer.
    It’s such a chore for me to start. I hate exercising but hope that if I get used to it, I might enjoy it. And like you, it would be nice to feel happy in my own skin, lol.
    Do you mind telling me which Trim product you’re using?
    Thanks so much,
    Suzanne
