Determined for a purpose

Today is the first day of my journey to overcome some mountains in my life...I have several important things I am striving for. One is to cease control of what I put in my body.
I have always fought being overweight. I was raised in an 18 wheeler from the age of 3 months till I was almost five years old. By the age of 14 my weight had crept up to 425 pounds. By age 16 my weight was down to 206. I never made it under that number as my own body image distortions took over. I could never ...
Today is the first day of my journey to overcome some mountains in my life...I have several important things I am striving for. One is to cease control of what I put in my body.
I have always fought being overweight. I was raised in an 18 wheeler from the age of 3 months till I was almost five years old. By the age of 14 my weight had crept up to 425 pounds. By age 16 my weight was down to 206. I never made it under that number as my own body image distortions took over. I could never enjoy who I was.
In 1992 I and my roomate trained for the LA Marathon. We spent 9 months training for the event. We walked it in 7 hours and 35 minutes for a grand total of 26 plus miles...
I came out of that experience at the fittest I had ever been.. but at the weight of 235.

In December of 2009 I had a minor stroke, which was a huge wake up call for me mentally, physically and spiritually.

I have come to conclude that God has made me a larger sized woman, however I have learned to appreciate my body and strive for improved health and the ability to have a child. I'm feeling better, looking better and am loving myself more along the way. Life it too short. Time to start is NOW.
