I'll come straight to the point. I weigh over 340 pounds! Over 340! I can't believe my weight has slowly spun out of control and I'm this large. I don't think this is what is meant by "Go big, or go home". I'm here to start tracking, caring, walking....LIVING! I KNOW I have the strength and tenacity to achieve this. I HAVE GREAT THINGS INSIDE ME.






2009 GOALS

Starting weight *351 (YIKES!)
Goal #1 -333 -Accomplished 2/16/09

    Paige! You CAN work out out like I do...you just have to start! When I initially started my journey at 391, the only thing I could do without pain was water walking and water aerobics. After that got easier (after about 3 months), I started working out on land. Initially, I could walk a very slow mile on the treadmill. With consistency and small little changes and pushes to do more difficult and strenuous exercises I've gotten to where I am...which is in no way my final destination. But I'll take it! You can too!! Just start slow and every week challenge yourself to push a little harder. Your body WILL AMAZE you!!!
