I have been overweight over 3/4 of my life. I miss playing sports and just plain feeling good.

I have started this journey many times and have not reached my goal for one reason or another. I hear myself making excuses- "I started back to work." or "I need to take care of my family first." I know that the excuses have to STOP!

I am starting this process for the last time. I am not on a journey, but an adventure!! I am looking forward to my new adventure, because I have a wonderful husband and friend taking the adventure with me.

My life is going to be filled with many up hill battles, but I know I can and I will win those battles!!!

    Hi Kelly!! I know its been awhile I just keep pluging away at THIS. How have you been doing? I'm starting a couple challanges starting Tuesday the 13th.
