Getting Healthier feeling healthier looking healthy :)

Hi all,

I hope you are having a good week. I am here just to say thanks! Thanks for all the inspiring stories, the knowledge shared, the kind words and any challenge you throw in :)

Thanks because 8 weeks ago I was on the edge of obesity (well actually passed that with 96 Kg.) and I had a worrying 107 cm. waist. Today, after 8 weeks and a bit, I am 83.5 Kg. and 92 cm. I could not believe I lost 15 cm waist!!! I knew something was changing from the jeans and running gears, but I lost my measuring tape and could not check for a few weeks.

And yesterday I had a meeting at the University with a few colleagues I haven't seen for the whole summer and the first comment when they saw me was: " You look HEALTHY" :)

Nice, they didn't look at my shape or at my weight, they just looked at me and said I looked healthy. And actually it is true! The reason why I started was never image, it was health and they reminded me that this isn't about looking good for me (I don't really care of what other think about me to be honest) but to be healthy and be there for my kids in the future :)

And here I am, getting healthier and looking healthier. And you definitely are playing a huge role in this, so thank you for being here :)

have a lovely day

    I too feel much fitter and that is a big thing for me as I was so very unfit.

    I am so pleased you feel good and others noticed too and what a good role model for your children to see their dad getting fit and looking healthier, they must be proud of you. 😊😊

    Feeling so happy for you that you are healthy. How happy you feel when someone notice the positive change.

    Your family will be proud of you as well as you.
