Plus-Size Mom – Working Out, Eating Clean and Making Time – With P90X Giveaway

This Plus-Sized mom made one decision that changed the course of her life forever.

#fitness #giveaway P90X Home workout program

At 300 lbs, I wasn’t feeling good about myself.
#weightloss #obese #plussize

I was pre-diabetic, uncomfortable, heavy and unhappy.  Really, I was unhappy.  Actually, I was sad.  I didn’t like myself.  At the time, I had 3 kids, no money really – and I didn’t know what to do to change.  I was going to the gym at the time, but the weight was not coming off.

I had lost weight prior with weight watchers, but soon gained it all back.  I didn’t really know if anything would work.

There had to be another way.

I knew it was going to be difficult, but I was hypertensive and pre-diabetic – and I needed to make it all stop.  I didn’t want to end up like my parents – there had to be a better way to live.

When I was approached about doing the 21 Day Fix, I came up with a number of excuses.  I didn’t have the money – which was true.  I didn’t.  Homeschooling doesn’t really pay, does it?  I didn’t have the time – which I didn’t.  A baby, homeschooling, breastfeeding, pumping, activities, meals, blogging, laundry and on and on and on.

I didn’t have the time.

I didn’t have the energy.  I was 300 lbs, eating poorly – of course I didn’t have the energy.  That’s not surprising.

Guess what?  When I thought about it, either it was going to be a life of diabetes and heart disease or I was going to figure out the money, the time and the energy – guess what was most important to me?

I used a gift card that I received in Christmas 2013 from my sister – and it changed my life completely.

Yeah, it was really hard getting started.  Working out at 300 lbs – it’s no joke.  I hardly made it through the jumping jacks (in the warmup.  I had never done a burpee or a plank.  It was all new.

But I kept at it.  I weathered the storms.  I checked in with my accountability groups – although there was nobody like me in them.  They were all skinny ladies looking to get ripped – but that was okay.  They supported me.

Quickly, I became more energetic and determined.

I became more confident about myself and my body.

I would have never ever taken a full body picture of me – willingly.  I could even barely look at myself in the mirror, much less pictures.

A few weeks ago, I was able to walk into a Nike store and try on clothes at Nike – that fit!
#plussize mom tries on clothes
Do you know how HUGE that was for me?  The anticipation of whether I would even fit into normal size clothes was almost enough to keep me from going.  But I did it.  I fit into normal clothes from a normal store!

It feels AMAZING!


I got stronger and I got leaner

I learned what a burpee was, and a plank.  Guess what?  Now, I am doing one handed and footed burpees and one armed planks.

Do you think I would have ever gotten this far, if I hadn’t had started?

No.  You have to say yes!  Say yes to a new life.

I am not there yet.  I still have a ways to go.


Probably about 70 lbs more or so.

But I look forward to the  hard work, the sacrifice, and the new body and life to come. I welcome every single minute of it.  Why?  Because I know it’s so worth it.

    I have been overweight most of my life. Having PCOS makes it more difficult for me to lose weight so I’m looking for a different option I haven’t tried yet. I’m tired of all the fad diets, been there and done that I say. Nothing ever works. I’m ready to get up and get moving and work hard to lose weight.
