It’s a story that many of us are unfortunately all too familiar with. I used to be overweight. Actually, if you want to be politically correct, I was obese. I felt miserable within my own skin. I had a love/hate relationship with food. I got winded walking from my office to the train. I’m one of those unique individuals who actually gained weight while owning a gym membership. I made excuse after excuse as to why I couldn’t get myself together. But after a while… even I got tired of the excuses.
In the luckiest chance I’ve ever taken- I found a local small business called A Healthy Balance that works with clients on nutrition, fitness and overall wellness. With their guidance- I began to dig myself out of fat I had buried myself in. I was so successful that I was chosen by my trainers to document my weight loss experience for 12 weeks and then I thought… why not keep this going?
And so The Half Ass Bad Ass was created. The Half Ass part of me is where I’ve come from, the chubby girl who cried through a minute of jumping jacks or who couldn’t run a mile. It still shines through from time to time, especially when it comes to new and scary situations . But the Bad Ass part of me is here, evolving, ready to prove herself. She’s strong, she’s healthy, and she’s ready to take on new challenges. She runs 5Ks, is training for a triathlon, and isn’t ruling out the idea of one day running a marathon . She has found confidence , and a true passion for health and fitness. She’s honest, sometimes awkward, and tells it like it is. She won’t tell you that weight loss happens overnight.
