It started out like any other goal.. A goal to lose weight, psht right, I'd been trying to lose weight for so long now, like this time would be any different, but I guess I will try.. Hula hooping seems like it would be fun, and entertaining.. but how much weight could one person really loose right?
Starting out at A whopping 200 pounds, thats alot of weight... this is the heaviest I've ever been...
and so my journey begins...
June 10th 2010... weight 200 pounds... Hopefully its the last time I see that number on the scale again..
My first few months were hard... actually the first year was hard.. trying to loose weight while also trying to see if I could actually do cool tricks and stuff... My best friend at the time helped alot with my tricks.. well she posted videos online and I watched them lol. Hers were the only videos I really watched and learned from for the first year.. so My tricks weren't so main stream.. they had flair.. and.. a little something different then other hoopers I have seen on youtube..
after that first year I had only lost about 20 pounds, and it kept going up and down... my diet was poor.. and my exersize routines weren't the best.. but I did okay, I toned up alot.
After my first year things go A little crazy, :) right before my two year mark I moved in with my best friend, we hooped together every single day, Made cool funny videos, and made plans to take over Montana.. when I was there I had lost around 40 pounds all togeather, so I was feeling a little better about myself, going from 200 pounds to 160 was pretty good, But things in Montana.. didn't work out.. Its okay because good things come from Hurt, and pain, You grow from bad.. sad.. depressing experiences..
After leaving Montana I was DETERMINED to loose more weight.
Back in portland I strive to rock out the best way I can.. By hula hooping at the Portland saturday market, Best experience of my life, durring the rest of the year I ened up loooseing 70 pounds all togeather, My weight is now 130, My body is tonned, my weight is down and I am the happiest I have ever been in my life I'm healthy, I'm obsessed with hula hooping, and I love life.
A thank you goes out to all of those who have been there for me over the past two years, A thanks also goes out to you.. my ex best friend, without you none of this would have happened, Thank you.
