My name is Beth and I'm so DONE!!
I have struggled all my life with my weight. Honestly, I can't remember a time when I wasn't pudgy, chunky, or whatever you want to call it.
It feels like a cement shoe on one foot, or the old ball and chain that I carry around with me. The only thing that has ever stopped me has been me. Some how, some where along the path of life, I've gotten it in my head that I have no worth; that I don't deserve to be healthy or make myself a priority. Well, ...

I have been to the doctor and the "you're going to die" speech never did it to me before.

"Be steadfast in my healthy lifestyle" Steadfast means a direction and a deliberate decision. I am going in the direction of health and fitness, and will make a deliberate decision to eat the right foods in the proper portions, drink 10 glasses of water a day, and do aerobic exercise 30 minutes a day and strength training 3 times a week.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight and get healthy. I would like to be able to be active and keep up with my 5 year old. I would also like to set a good example for him and teach him how to eat and exercise properly so he doesn''t follow in my footsteps.

My Program:
I''m trying to learn about nutrition, follow a better eating plan and increase my exercise. It seems like I''ve always had a "general" idea of what was good to do, but I always used the excuse that I didn''t have the time, or exercising and meal planning take too much effort. Well, my excuses have landed me obese with high blood pressure and a serious risk for diabetes. The final wake up call came when my doctor put me on blood pressure medication.

Personal Information:
I was born in St. Petersburg, Florida and after 10 years my parents moved the family to eastern Michigan, the thumb to be exact. I've spent the majority of my life there until a job change in 2004 brought me and my family to Las Vegas, Nevada. In 2005 my family and I moved to a smaller town outside of Las Vegas, called Pahrump. Desert living has been challenging to get used to considering all of my life prior to this has been spent surrounded by water.
