My name is mercy. I'm 36 years old. Over the past 4 years, I have gained over 30 pounds for simple reasons. I stopped eating healthy and exercising. Why? I thought it was way too much work! 30+ pounds later, i regret letting myself go. I feel heavy, un-happy, un-sexy, lazy...i'm just not my old self. 3 weeks ago, i simply said enough is enough. I packed my gym bag and ever since, I have been working out at least 5 days a week! I stopped eating processed food and focused on more organic healthy options. It's good to be back! my energy levels are high, the weight is coming off (have lost 6 pounds so far)...I just feel much better. I knwo that remaining focused is the hard part, so i wanted to hold myself accountable by somehow blogging and getting support form people who have the same objectives as mine. I cannot loose this battle, I have to win and I will win!
