A multitude of health issues and general lack of motivation have led me to be at my heaviest weight yet. Now that I have surgery coming up in June, I am finding the motivation I need to make important changes to my life. I'm making conscious efforts at eating better and have recently been rediscovering my love of being an outdoorsy gal. With hiking and camping coming back into my life, I'm finding the motivation I need to make big changes.
