So Lean And Clean News

I MUST SHARE THIS POST WITH ALL THE PEOPLE WHO FEEL THAT IMPROVING THEIR HEALTH IS AN OVERWHELMING THOUGHT, READ ON FOR INSPIRATION. This is a post from yesterday on my private group So Lean And Clean Group.
Morning all, I am shortly off to TRX and will follow it by at least 60 mins hard cardio. I joined SLAC a year ago at a truly horrifying weight of over 17 stones ( probably nearer 17 7). How I ever let myself get that big I will never know, but the fact is I did. I think it creeps up on you and even though I knew I was big and knew what I weighed I never thought I was as big as I was. I have always been active and easily walked 6 miles a day so I didn’t feel unfit ( although at that weight I must have been). Today, a year on, I am still hugely overweight (12 5) but I am getting there and firmly believe I have made lifestyle changes that will stay with me. I know I will never regain the weight, equally I know it will be a lifelong battle but one I now feel in control of. My aim is to be a goal weight (9 12) by May, which I feel is a realistic. And achievable goal. Thank you all for your help I couldn’t have come so far without the help and support of SLAC especially you Gail Abbey, without whom I wouldn’t have started this journey and certainly wouldn’t have come this far so a very BIG thank you to you. One thing I would say, is that if anyone had said to me a year ago, that it would take a year to lose 5 stones I probably wouldn’t have started because I would have wanted all of my weight to have gone in a lot less time. Now I am so pleased it didn’t ( don’t get me wrong I wish I was slim) as I have learned so much about myself this past year. I have pushed my body way out of its comfort zone, I burn calories before I consume them, and I love being fit. Running for 40 mins earlier this week was a huge achievement for me after a lifetime of saying I can’t run. A quick fix would never have had me running or indeed pushing myself to the extent I am. Our situation ( ie no jobs) a year ago would have led to pounds piling on and me justifying them. Now I work my frustrations out at the gym. So a quick fix SLAC certainly isn’t – but what it is is so much more a lifestyle change and I have met some wonderful friends along the way, although not in person yet xxxxx
