Since April 2013 I have lost 56 lbs! It has taken a lot of work, discipline, and motivation. My weight loss began when I made a conscious decision that I was going to do something about my weight. Since I can remember , I have always carried some extra pounds. Losing weight was always in the back of my mind but I would never do anything about it. Instead of losing weight, I would keep gaining. I weighed 236 lbs in April and I am down to 180 now! In April I was wearing 2XL shirts and a 40 waist and now I am into a Large shirt and 34 waist!
I began doing the Insanity program and when I moved back to Fort Dodge a few months ago I was looking for a gym that would offer a workout similar to what I had been doing. The REC offered that to me and I have been enjoying my Monday, Wednesday, and Friday workouts at the Rec Coliseum since I joined.
Well....you have already posted one of Jeff, but since I am SO proud of him I am sending this one of us together.
Since starting the coliseum I have lost 20lbs. and more than that have noticed that I am WAY stronger than ever before! Together Jeff and I have adopted a healthier lifestyle, changing how we consume food, and making sure that we are active everyday. I have had weeks where I have struggled with my eating and lack of exercise, but through encouragement and drive I get back up and continue my journey, which is not always easy but very worth it. We both feel great, and really enjoy the workouts and motivating instructors.
I just decided one day that it was time to make healthier decisions and change my life style. I lost 85 lbs and went from size 40-32 in 6mo. My wife and I started going to the Coliseum when they opened. I go to the downtown rec in the mornings and the Coliseum at night. I also make healthy food choices. I am now the most fit I have ever been and I'm now REC STRONG!!
