I had a regular doctor checkup about two months ago. It was then that I asked about my weight. I know I'm not as small as I was before I had my son but I wouldn't have considered myself to be obese. That day my doctor told me I was borderline obese...I came home to my husband and asked him to help me lose weight, he agreed to help. He took me to gym once put me on treadmill while him and his friend went and did their work out and never took me back. I did my research and learned how to eat healthy,but apparently that's not enough. I went bk to doctor last month due to him wanting to check my process, I dropped 5 lbs...still isn't enough. I have no family where I live, the few friends I have are either pregnant or too busy to join me, and obviously my husband isn't concerned or care. I have family history of diabetes and obesity, which is why my Dr is concerned.

Due to the lack of help, guidance, support...I went into the f**k it state of mind for almost a month. I hate how my body looks, double chin, big arms, rolls everywhere when I wear my summer dresses, belly fat and flab from being 105 lbs before pregnancy then in the end of my pregnancy I was 207 lbs.

I keep a spotless house, tend to my family's every need, babysit 2 other kids, I know it don't sound like much but I can assure you, I stay busy all day. Even though I support my husband in every decision he makes in his military career, I don't see why he can't return the favor. But the past few days, I have researched workouts I can do in my own home. I'm not going to put myself, my health, my self esteem in harm's way due to others.

This is the very beginning of my journey, the beginning of a new chapter, the beginning of MY life.

I hope anyone struggling with similar issues, even worse issues know that you're not alone. I'm going to show my loved ones even myself how determined and dedicated I am even if I have to do so alone. I hope everyone wanting the same things as I overcomes and prevails.

Hello Tiffany. A few months ago I looked at myself in the mirror and saw a shell that my former self was trapped in. I knew that a younger fitter self was trapped in there and needed to come back out. I quit smoking, joined the gym, and downloaded this app. I bought supplements and protein shakes. It was difficult to break old habits, but much harder to start new ones. NO ONE AROUND ME SUPPORTS ME! If anything, they want to put me down. Don't expect support from anyone. Once you figure this out in your life, you will...

Any advice on what to start with ? I'm going to have my first workout in a couple of hours (as soon as I finish house chores)

I usually start with a stretch 9 min morning empowering stretch is good. After that depends on where you want to focus on. Don't go extreme right off the bat. Start with casual work outs and work your way up. You can always do one more. Good luck and any more ?s just ask

Well I was thinking, I love my yoga...so I figured I'd start morning with different yoga routines, adding in a little core, and full body

Afternoon do some cardio, core, and rotate upper and lowers depending on the day

Evenings I haven't planned for yet haha.

I HAVE TO have a written schedule for the week though and put up on fridge or something or I won't do it lol I just don't know how to schedule my week. And it has to be and Hr 3 times a day.

Just remember to give your body time to rest. Be patient and stay vigilant.

Not gonna do so much I wear myself out, all workouts right now will be easy going. Once I'm use to it I'll step up the workouts

I don't have anyone either to workout with, I can't afford a gym membership, so motivation is key! I just started today and after 1 session I'm determined. Follow me and if you want to, inbox me your # and we can motivate each other! :) Best of luck girlie!
