Growing up I was always rather skinny, sometimes almost too skinny.
As I grew up that ‘blessing’ seemed to have lessened as my metabolism changed, slowing down. I started gaining weight really easily. Then I had a baby, which even though brought the greatest little boy EVER into my life, it also brought upon me a few extra unwanted pounds. Those few extra pounds slowly, and then quickly, turned into A LOT of extra pounds…. Finally I knew I had to do something.
I changed my eating habits and within 4 months I had lost 30 pounds. I knew I wasn’t where I wanted to be and I knew I needed to incorporate something other than running and eating better into my routine. I went online and researched kickboxing classes. I came across a life-changing place called MA Fitness and went in for a class. I fell in love right away. Just by adding kickboxing to my workout routine, I lost another 15 pounds. But still, I wasn’t where I wanted to be. I, yet again, changed my diet and lost a few more pounds. To this day I’m still not at my goal weight yet, although I’m very close. With a ton of hard work and dedication, I will reach my goal weight within the next few months.
It takes absolutely zero time to gain weight, but forever to lose it. It’s a journey that needs support and motivation. Push yourself as hard as you can and your results will show.
