Weight Loss: Insanity Journey

Monday, September 10, 2012

Warning! I am not the healthiest person by far! But I do try to be healthy for me... so what I'm about to write is my journey.

Two years ago, I noticed that I was gaining a lot of weight. And I mean a lot! I didn't know how to stop it. I started walking a 10k three times a week. All the walking didn't seem to help. I just kept gaining weight. In total I gained 36 pounds. I knew something wasn't right.

3 years ago: Before I gained weight
1 year ago: After gaining weight





I went to my doctor and I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I began taking medicine for it and I lost about 20 pounds from the medicine. Unfortunately, that left about 16 pounds until I'm back at my original weight. But I don't want to be there. I wasn't at a healthy weight then. I wasn't seriously overweight, but I can be smaller than I was.

So I began the Insanity workout. I didn't follow a strict diet during the workout. When I try to follow a diet it doesn't work so well. So I just watched what I ate. The workout program was pretty tough. Well  not just tough but difficult.

I didn't do as well as I should have because I went out of town at least four times during the program. And out of town for me means I had a hard time eating well, even just watching what I eat. So I could have lost more weight, but I wanted to share my little bit of goodness that came from this workout.

This is my progress... please don't judge me and my pictures.
