I'm starting my life over...I will be a new person...I will get off of these meds...I will change my life through exercise and eating right. I will fuel my body with GREAT things.

I do not really know what my HIEGHEST weight is, because really who wants to weigh themselves to just cry. But the first time i do recall weighing in i was at 320lbs.

I've quickly come to learn that it takes a lot of work and dedictaion to see the results I so long to see.

    Losing the weight just takes time, patience & motivation. You've got to really want to commit to losing weight or it just won't happen.

    I workout pretty much soon get used to it, and feel sluggish when you don't get a workout in. I'm actually having a 'rest' day today...but I'm a little bit fidgity like I need to do something! No doubt I will probably go for a run or something later lol.

    When I first started on this journey I was completely overwhelmed. I hated myself & thought I would never lose any weight. Now I'm down 3 dress sizes & I feels so much more confident in myself.

    Once you have lost weight, you realise you really can achieve anything you put your mind to.
