I simply do not want to end up like the majority of the other women in my family who struggle with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, and walking up a flight of stairs. I'm the only one who can prevent that from happening to me, so that's what I'm doing! My primary goal is not to lose weight but to develop healthy habits and a lifestyle focused on overall wellness. I have recently been diagnosed with PCOS and am struggling with the lifestyle changes that must be made to keep myself healthy. The weight gain is discouraging, but can be adjusted with self-discipline and work. I just don't want it to affect my life negatively. I know that God is bigger than the limitations of my physical body and that with His help as well as encouragement from others, I will succeed in living a healthier lifestyle.

My Goals:
* Look fit and feel healthy so that I can do all of the things I want to do and more.
* Feel more energetic rather than tired all of the time!
* Become more flexible physically, spiritually, and emotionally so that God can use me where He sees fit.

My Program:
* Eat more sensibly.
* Drink more water & cut down on sodas.
* Exercise regularly.
* Stretch every day.
* Stick to a lifestyle that will accommodate my PCOS diagnosis but will not hold me hostage to it or its symptoms.

    Hey there! Thanks for keeping up with my blog and offering such great support through your comments. I really hope that this time I can keep the motivation up. It's so hard to do, especially when food seems to be the way everyone socializes these days... I feel like I have to stay away from friends and family if I'm going to do this right! Good luck with your progress.
