performance: Steady

Hello everyone!! My name is Yolanda, and I'm a 26 year old mother of 2, married almost three years. I've learned how to lose weight the right way, and I'm sticking to it! I lost seventy-five pounds in 2013 (and quit smoking!) , looking to keep that forward momentum going to finally hit my goal in 2014. I have another sixty-five pounds to go and I'm not intimidated in the least :-). I started this journey in March 2013, weighing in at almost three hundred pounds and terribly insecure. I fought through those insecurities and even started going to a local gym. For me losing weight has been a fifty fifty of diet and exercise. The diet probably aids most of the loss, but the exercise has built my confidence drastically. That coupled with the support I've found on this site, I really hit the jackpot! So I am here today to tell you that nothing is impossible. If I can quit smoking, and have the birth control implant that leads to weight gain, work full time, and still reach my goals then believe me, anyone can! I have big goals for this year, here are a few of them...

ONEDERLAND (accomplished... I don't remember when exactly but I did it lol)

Run a full 5k without stopping!

Finally hit my 100lb loss

April 5th (my birthday) - Party like a rock star in a new 'skinny' outfit

weigh in at 170lbs

I hope you will join me in racing towards my goals by setting some goals of your own!

A Curvy Gals Work out
Hey pretty lady! Unfortunately I don't think there is any way to guarantee where weight will be lost from. I've lost at least a cup size, boooo! Luckily for me, though, while the rest of me is shrinking I actually look pretty proportionate. Cardio is great for getting that maximum calorie burn, and when I only have a small amount of time to get in a killer workout, you can bet your bottom dollar I'm on the treadmill or the elliptical. However, I am avidly working on 'dat ass' and thighs, so I do lots of squats, and the stair climber. I'm really wanting short shorts this year lol. So it's not so much losing weight in certain places as it is toning the places you want to look tighter, firmer etc. Cardio is great for melting away the inches, but we also much be mindful of what it's going to look like when the fat is gone. Toned is a great look Smile I also use a kettle bell at home with a DVD I have by bob harper, it's a great full body strength workout. Have a good one Wallisrox!
