"Failure is only the opportunity to begin again more intelligently"

"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." ~Thomas Edison


Height: 5' 2.75"

Highest Weight: 267 lbs
Highest BMI: 47.7

Goal Weight Range: 104-139 lbs
Goal BMI Range: 18.6-24.8

I've never been at a healthy weight in my adult life. And I have hypothyroidism, which has contributed to my weight gain. And I am on medications that cause weight gain. I also have 2 herniated disks in my lower back which can make it difficult to exercise as much as I'd like to.

I want to be healthy. I want to not only be a healthy weight, but learn to take in foods that will make me feel better, help reduce my cholesterol, and manage my blood sugar.

I will NOT give up, because I AM worth it! No more excuses!!!
