My name is Angel Jimenez I’m a photographer for M.M.B Digital Photography and I’m 48 years old. My journey in losing weight began with one decision, either continue to stay unhealthy and with issues and allow my personal situation to run me down or create in me a new healthier person.
I began doing Cross fit and then I did a second course which was much more intense doing a 6 mile 35 plus obstacle called BONEFROG. I never thought in my wildest dreams of doing this type of course but what I can say, it was a life saver for me and it helped me personally in many ways.
When I started my cholesterol levels were at around 240, now 180, sugar 180, now 110. But what started it all and changed my mindset was my first Obstacle course run, which for me became the drive of me wanting to then begin to lose weight.
My weight fluctuated from 270-275 and today I’m proud to say I’m now at 215 and I’m still going. I can’t thank my coach Michele Keppley at Unfinished Athletics for pushing me the right direction on getting healthy and today I can say that the gym is now my second home.
