Start Weight:(08 Oct 11) 163.0 lb
Current Weight:(16 Mar 15) 172.5 lb
Goal Weight:125.0 lb
following: Shelli5's own diet
performance: gaining 0.1 lb a week

I am 43 years old. I am the mother to 4 wonderful children. I have been married for almost 18 years.

I was always active throughout my life. I began to be serious about my health when I was about 21. I ran, biked, lifted, etc... I also began to juice and limit my intake of garbage. To be completely honest, I feel like I was on the verge of becoming anorexic. I got down to about 111 lbs and I am 5'6". That might be acceptable for someone my height, but not for me . I was losing my hair, super weak, and a bit too obsessed with exercise.

I was able to pull myself out of that unhealthy cycle, though I would only let myself get up to about 115. I ended up getting married and had 3 miscarriages and 4 children within 8 1/2 years. I gained about 45 lbs with each pregnancy. My weight seemed to gravitate back to about 120. After my last pregnancy I had some health issues, which caused me to give up exercising. I got depressed and began to eat. And here I am at 163!

I honestly would be happy to hit about 125, so maybe I will change my goal weight.

I hope to make some friends along the way!!! Good luck to all of us!!!

Howdy! I am new to this site. Hopefully I can figure out how to navigate around here. Very Happy

I am a stay at home mom to 4 children. I have been married for almost 18 years. My spouse is super fit, which makes it even worse that I am overweight & outta' shape. Confused

I am 163 today and I set my goal at 120. I realize it is low, but I was that most of my life. After I had my 4th child I had some health issues arise and I had no energy to move around line usual.

I accepted the p90x 12 week challenge starting Monday! I am so excited!

Wish me luck and good luck to all of you!Wink
