My journey started 5 years ago with me eating unhealthy, never exercising, and weighing in at 158 pounds. According to most weight charts, this is considered a “healthy weight” for someone who is 5’9″. Interestingly enough, I knew I wasn’t at a healthy weight. Why? Because I was lethargic all the time and had a muffin top! haha So of course, I ignored the charts and decided that I needed to start eating healthier and start exercising.
My results were beyond what I had expected!
Just by eating healthier and exercising on a regular basis, I was able to get down to a much healthier weight of 130 pounds! I was even able to fit into a new jean size! When I first fit into my new jeans, I told my husband “Oh my gosh! I fit into a size TWO? This is impossible!”. I was shocked that this was my new jean size since I wasn’t trying to get into a particular size, I was just trying to be healthy. My husband shouted back “That’s because you are skinny, Twinkie!”. We both laughed at his comment because it sounded so ironic! My husband was calling me “skinny” and then right after he called me by my nickname, which is “Twinkie”. Needless to say, when I was ready to start my Health website, I named my site after this funny moment. It was this moment that I realized how much I had changed since the beginning of my journey, and how much better my body felt by simply living a Healthy life!
