This is a journey. It's going to be hard. The trick it to NEVER GIVE UP! Slip, fall, stumble, scream, cry, laugh, punch something, start over at the beginning, whine, complain, ache, fall off the wagon, get back on the wagon, fall off again, get back on again, get a helping hand back up, help someone back up, detour to the drivethru, learn from your mistakes, exercise, hurt, rant, rave, set goals, reset goals, find your inspiration, lose weight, gain weight, plateau, bust through your plateau, get congratulations, give congratulation, blog about it all.... but NEVER EVER GIVE UP!

When you give up on your health you are giving up on your life! And every one of you is worth more than that!

You are not your body and your body is not you. Your body is a vessel that houses all your love, joy, sadness, creativity, spunk, and uniqueness. However if you let your vessel go unchecked you will find YOU trapped in a prison of a body that is unable to do all the things that you want to do in life. YOU deserve better than that. You deserve a body that can take you places without seat belt extenders, X's on your clothes, shortness of breath, or other embarrassing symptoms of obesity. Obesity is like AIDS. It's not the illness it's self that kills, but the other illnesses that you run a higher risk of contracting. The difference is: OBESITY CAN BE CURED!

You CAN do this! We all CAN do this! NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
