I am a 30 year old female from Ohio. I have a very demanding job, one where I am in a leadership position where I can either be role model or look unhealthy and unfit. In high school and college I battled weight issues constantly, but I have never been heavy until these past couple of years. I am at my highest weight of 176 pounds and 5'6. I am tired of looking in the mirror and being disgusted with what I see back. I'm tired of wondering if people are looking at me and talking about how much weight I keep gaining. I want to be proud of myself - for both the way I look outside and the way I feel on the inside. I also want to be able to workout and run without stopping. I'd like to be able to complete a PT test without getting a lower score than anyone else or not thinking I can finish my run. But most of all, I want to be happy with myself. I want to stop making excuses, being lazy, and compensating for how bad my looks make me feel by eating even more unhealthier. I want to be proud of me, inside and out.
