I’m 26 and married. Last year in April i was 165.4 lbs (according to my mechanical scale which proved to be not very accurate to say the least…) and i was about to get married. Scared, fat and discouraged by a saleslady in a bridal shop, I looked for "diets" and ended up on www.sparkpeople.com. Created an account and started losing weight.
On my wedding day, Nov 4, 2006 i was 136 lbs and with both feet within a healthy BMI (i’m 5′2"). I managed to stick to that weight during the holidays but gained a bit during my finals in Feb 2007.
So in March 2007 i buckled up and restarted my plan on sparkpeople. I’m now at 128.8 lbs and only 9 lbs from my goal of 119 lbs. In Jun i started a body transformation program with a fellow team mate.
Currently my Body Fat is 22.3% (estimated by the US Navy formula, same formula I've used since starting to lose weight).
Right now, i'm on a 4 x 20 min per week Strength training plan and 3 days cardio. I'm trying to tone. And i'm also in the middle of a transformation program. That means i'll change my routine after 2 weeks.
