Region 1 Winner: Kim James
My name is Kimberly James, I am the proud mother of a four year old beagle dachshund Mix. I work a full time job Monday through Friday where I am sitting for most of the day. I started my weight loss journey at the beginning of the year by joining a gym. I started out going to the gym once a week, I have built up the ability to go work out regularly up to five or six times a week. I have been trying to loose weight for a while and have slowly been doing so. In doing so I can take better care of my baby girl.
During this challenge I have been motivated to continue to improve my habits and better my overall health by working out regularly and eating better. One thing I try to do is try to get up and move while at work for at least a few minutes every hour. This helps me in staying active. I have had a lot of challenges over the years that have tried to keep me from achieving my goals. This includes knee issues and wrist issues that make working out hard to do. This challenge was a tool that helped to keep me on track. Though I have only lost 7.3 pounds I have had a few non-scale victories such as being able to wear knee high boots and having the confidence to wear lularoe leggings. These non-scale victories have played a huge part helping me feel more confident in who I am. It all feeds in to my overall well being and to have the physical ability to be the best mother any Dog could ask for. It also has also played a huge part in bettering myself for the future so I can be a health mother some day to wonderful children.
