Hello awesome nerds! I'm really excited to have joined Nerd Fitness and get stuck in to all of the training!! I’ve decided to make some big changes and create a lifestyle I love.


My big ‘why’ is a combination of things. Firstly I want to be able to feel comfortable when I travel. I love going overseas but those plane seats yo, it's not a good scene. I want to walk the great wall, climb the Eiffel tower, and hike Machu Picchu – sit in a plane seat with room to spare. I want to look like I know how to look after myself, strong, fit, and healthy. I know I was meant to be more than what I have let myself become. I will set a good example for my friends and family by showing them what's possible. I'll be able to go hiking and exploring all over the world and feel fit and healthy doing it. I'm done feeling like a wallflower, a side-kick in my own life.


Phew, it's going to take some work you guys but you know what? I'm all in.


So a bit about me in case you are still reading and want to know more. I'm 31, female, and I weigh 125kgs (275 pounds). I had actually reached my heaviest weight of 135kgs in 2016 which is when I started seeing a health coach and joined a gym. I had made some great progress and lost 10kgs by June 2017, but then I stalled. I have managed to maintain my weight since then with healthy meal choices but no exercise. I work full time as a personal assistant so sitting at a desk all day hasn't been very helpful, but at the same time there are a lot of things I can do outside of work to keep myself on track. 


Since December 2017 I’ve been back at gym 3 days a week and next month I’m going to increase it to 4. I’ve really cleaned up my diet focusing on increasing my vegetable and lean protein intake and skipping fast food. I’m not after any quick fix, I’m in this for the long term. Not only do I want to change my mind and body I want this to be my new life.


A few of my hobbies and fandoms include; Supernatural, Buffy, Firefly, The Walking Dead (Comics), Everything Marvel - Black Widow is my idol. 


I’m really looking forward to being a part of this community. I do have supportive friends and family but I know I can do even better if I surround myself with awesome people who are working on themselves too.

You seem really motivated, I like that. I'm hoping to have a transformative year, too, getting back on track at the gym and even adding a little bit of yoga.


Aww thank you, I'm glad the feeling is coming through in my post. That's awesome! Sounds like we're both going to have an amazing year. I haven't done yoga in years so I'm looking forward to getting back into it.
