I started working out at Bally's Fitness at the age of 19. I fell in love with weights, cardio, and what they did for my body. I quit working out after baby #1, and by baby number 2, I had gained 50 lbs of body fat. I rejoined Bally's at that time, lost 50 lbs, and maintained that 50 lb weight loss for about 5 years. Then baby #3 came along. To make a long story a tad bit longer, I quit the gym once again, in the name of good motherhood. (Big mistake ladies!) With that, and a large amount of post-partum depression, I managed to gain over 100 lbs, leaving me at a devastating 245+lbs. After 7 years of no exercise, I eventually rejoined a gym, in my local rural community. I have managed thus take off 100 lbs and I am still going. A work in progress, at age 38 (&1/2), I find that I love the weights more than ever. I believe they saved my life.
Why I Love it
It makes me lovvvvvvvvvvvvvvve my body! =)
SERENITY, BALANCE, STRENGTH, ENDORPHINS!
Better than an anti-depressant and a natural aphrodisiac.
