Hello! My name is Alicia. I am not exactly new to Spark People, but am just really finding the courage to start this journey. I have been dealing with Anxiety and Depression for about 3 years now. I now have something called Chronic Hyperventilation Syndrome, which always makes me feel short of breath, like I can't take a deep breath. I am looking to lose weight, get more exercise, feel better about myself, and look better. I want a better quality of life! I look forward to getting to know y'all through this forum.
