InnerTaunTaun Starts Her Journey

InnerTaunTaun started working out after having her last baby. She was hospitalized with blood clots in her lungs and active Epstein-Barr, which left her anxious and overweight, having gained 20lbs in the next four months. In January, she started working out again and tracking calories.

Calorie Tracking and Exercise

InnerTaunTaun used MFP for calorie tracking, eating about 1600-1700 calories a day, but no food group was off-limits, although she tried to eat more protein, fat, veggies, and fruits than things like bread, rice or potatoes. For exercise, she alternated between heavy lifting, HIIT workouts, and running on the treadmill. She works out about 5-6 days a week.

The Support System

InnerTaunTaun participated in the last round of /r/90daysgoal, which helped her organize her thoughts, plans, and goals. She planned to lose 40-50lbs more and work on building more defined muscles. InnerTaunTaun shares that checking out posts in the subreddit for weight loss progress helped keep her motivated. Pictures from progress posts serve as great motivation.
