    My current clothes are starting to fall apart and I refuse to buy anymore "fat clothes." I want to be able to jog, walk, and hike when I'm 80, 85, 90. I want my kids to have my love and guidance for another 30 years. I want to travel. I want to take my dogs to the dog park for miles of walking together. I don't want to sweat so much.

    Once I started getting comfortable at the gym something just clicked. I enjoyed the way I was feeling and happy with my progress. With medical conditions in family history, I wanted to continue getting healthy to lessen the chances of it happening to me. Being only 30 I wanted to start my fitness/ health journey now, so I hopefully don't have to worry about things in the future.

    I don't have a lot to lose, but even 10-lbs makes an uncomfortable difference cuz fat settles in my stomach & waist. One day, when it became tough to polish my toe nails cuz my stomach was in the way & I couldn't pull up my knees, I stopped putting it off.

    I also have a closet full of cute summer clothing & I can fit into some if I don't mind my stomach poking out & most button down shirts I can't wear cuz I can't button up.

    So, I began. So far, so good. Just keep moving forward.

    I'm constantly angry and unhappy with myself ... and I'm tired of feeling that way.
    I want to feel pretty and confident like i used to:)

    It is all about disease I already taking medication for mental illness I don't take any more medication
    Either it is diabetes or high blood pressure

    Been majorly depressed for most of my life and abused my body with food, there are so many adventures I want to go on but first I have to make amends with my body.

    Pain is the precursor to change. From the top of your head to the bottom of your feet, pain will speak to you like nothing else will.
