How About 110? :)
I have lost 110 lbs
I was always overweight, and I never felt like I was “enough”. I tried many diets but I seldom lost a significant amount of weight, and if I did, it always came back-and more.
In 2008, while I was pregnant with my 2nd son, I started having numbness in my leg, and I lost my vision in one eye for 4 days. This led to MRIs, and the discovery that I had Multiple Sclerosis. I vowed I would be at a healthy weight by my 25th birthday.
I started intense cardio 5 days a week, a reduced calorie diet, and strength training 3-4 days a week. When my emotions got the best of me, instead of eating, I got on my bike and spun away the stress. I found a healthy substitution for the coping mechanism I established so long ago.
My MS is in remission now, and my Neurologist says that is largely because of my new healthy body and lifestyle. I eat right, I drink at least 8 cups of water a day, and I have never felt this good, or this accomplished! I have gone from a size 24W to a 4! If I can do it with 2 little boys at home, and a debilitating illness, anyone can! I have inspired countless friends to start working out and eating right and my whole family is feeling like new!
