It was time to do something for myself.
In September 2013 I sent my last child to college and decided it was time to do something for myself. I went “gym hunting” and ended up at momentum. At that time I was 50 lbs overweight. I began working out several times a week with guidance from the staff and lost about 20 lbs. Then came the holidays. I did gain about 10 lbs back. Over the holidays my youngest sister (by 12 years) challenged me to a triathlon sprint. I talked with the staff at Momentum and they encouraged me to do it. I knew I would have to lose the weight I regained as well as more. I joined “Take it Off” and had training sessions once a week to get me in shape strength wise as well as cardiovascular. I can say now that I completed the sprint 4th in my age category, lost 35lbs and dropped from a size 16 (going on 18) to a size 10. Was it easy? No. Was it doable? Yes. However I could not have done it without the encouragement I received from the staff and the clientele at Momentum. Thank you all.
