I'm almost 31 years old and may be on my last chance to become healthy.

When I was injured in the military,it became a wake up call. not only do I have many physical and psychological issues from the accident,but they discovered heart and breast issues that may have not been detected otherwise. And because I was unable to exercise, my weight sky rocketed.

This scared me.I really began making the effort to get healthy. Unfortunately, until just two weeks ago (August 12,2009) I was living in VA community living in San Francisco and going to treatment daily. Now I'm home, but going back to the doctor about 4 days a week.

But now I am ready to get back on track. I want to go get back into shape and get through my thirty's, if not my sixty's

Hi Turtle!

I am participating in the Pay It Forward challenge, and I wanted to let you know that you inspire me. I haven't forgotten about you or your story, and I wanted to tell you that I think you are incredible, for serving our country, for taking care of yourself and your kiddos, for moving forward through every obstacle. I believe that you will succeed, and I am inspired so much by your journey. I just wanted to let you know that "meeting" you had a profound effect on me.

I hope that things have been going well for you. I certainly wish you all the best!

Would you continue this challenge? You are my #1!

1. Go thank someone who has inspired or motivated you. Tell them what they did, and how it affected you.
2. Go find someone that youíve lost touch with. Ask how they are doing and find out if they need support.
3. Go help someone who needs it. Share your knowledge, answer questions, or mentor someone facing a new challenge.
4. Copy this and ask each of the three people you touch to do the same for three more people.
