Starting weight: 220.2 lbs
Why I’m overweight: I’m an emotional eater. It started when I was young and snacked on unhealthy snacks after school every day. When I started gaining weight, I lost confidence and ate more. Over the years, I’ve grown more comfortable in my skin, but I realize I need to get healthy.
Why do I want to lose weight: It’s not really that I want to lose weight, but I want to get healthy, and I know weight loss is going to come with that. I want to become an emotional exerciser instead of an emotional eater. I can’t keep going down this road, and today’s as good of a day as any to change!
Strategy: I’m going to attempt to do T25. I was able to complete P90X, and, though I gained weight while on it, it greatly boosted my confidence! However, cardio has always been my weakness, and I’m really hoping to improve my overall cardio during T25. I’m also going to follow the T25 diet, consisting 1600 calories each day. If I haven’t lost weight by week 3 of T25, I’ll reduce my calorie intake as well.
Update (3-21-14): As of today, I will have completed Focus T25! And I have to say, it is an absolute life changer. I did the Fast Track (best decision I've ever made), and it help me keep my eating in control. I've greatly improved my cardio and lost over 20 lbs in my journey :) But it's not over yet! Next up: another round of Focus T25 Beta phase with running added in, and after that's over, we're going to give Insanity another go!
