Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I am Renee a
twenty-something year old living in Long Island NY. I am a Big City girl at heart but have Country Blood running through my veins. I have been working at my job for 5 years and absolutely love it, they are like a second family to me since day one.
Gettin’ Fit Fab was originally started as a weight loss blog, but since starting and naming it I’ve switched to anything and everything blog. Since I am still figuring out life and going day by day of life. On my blog you’ll find things from Weight Loss to Link Ups to Vents to Love to DIY to Crafts to Family to Friends, you get the picture. I am deeming it the most ‘Random Blog’ you’ll ever read. It fits perfectly with my personality cause my
ADD will have me go from topic A to topic Q down to topic Z in all about 1.5 seconds. I am hoping that through my blog I can get more ‘life-organized’ I definitely don’t have life completely figured out but I am getting closer each day.
Like some other girls I’ve met I’ve struggled with my weight for a very long time. I was active in high school so I never really fell into the ‘over weight’ category. As soon as I went away to college that change real quick. I gained the freshman
15 more like 25 pounds, and it went into a downward spiral from there. I did manage to go down to about 140lbs but it was an unhealthy dangerous way that I did it and than quickly gained all that PLUS more weight back. In 2008 I started doing Kickboxing that mixed in cross training, I had dated 2 different guys between 2008-2011 and yo-yoed even more with my weight never really losing a significant amount.
In 2012 I dated another ‘guy’ and that was when I gained even more weight, I was ‘happy’ but I ate whatever I wanted and never exercised besides walking every once in a while. That ended in September the week of my birthday.
Fast forward to New Years Day Jan 1, 2013, a little over a month since I had met and started dating the now love of my life Ant. I decided I didn’t want to look how I did anymore, I felt disgusting and Ant being ALOT skinnier than me I felt extremely self conscious being seen with him. I always felt that people were looking at us thinking ‘why is he with HER?’ Ant always held my hand when we went out, kissed me, went out to events with me. That means, it all came from MY head not anything that Ant did or said. He was amazing, and he still is.
I started in January but never really sticking to it at all, I dusted off my old Beachbody videos and started Turbo Fire. April 2013 was when I kicked into gear, and even started Coach to 5K app and even finished Turbo Fire and graduated the C25K app! I dropped about 30lbs with both programs, upgraded to a Beach Body coach and impatiently waited for Focus T25 to be released.
After I started and than completed T25 I am officially down 56.5lbs starting from April to September 2013.
You're weight loss success is truly inspiring. It's something I've battled with for a long time and I know how difficult it can be!
Aw thank you! I hope to inspire as many people as possible. I've battled long and hard too, I can relate that it's not easy and it's tiring each day.
Wow you are awesome! I'm definitely battling weight issues myself and you're so inspiring!
