I fight many health issues every day, however, I try to live a healthy lifestyle.

Balance/mobility problems, food allergies, chronic low- back pain, Fibromyalgia, and a history of eating disorders and body image issues, all make managing my weight very challenging.

I finally decided it is time to be healthy for me and not because health professionals and scales tell me I need too.

I often joke my body has a mind of its own.
I find Balance games on the Wii fit help me improve my core muscles and take control of my balance too!

I may not be where I want to be, but, I'm learning to celebrate where I am in my journey.
Overall, I want to be the best ME I can be.
