I have been overweight all my life. Growing up in a household where it is common to sit in front of the TV, I did not have the advantage of learning how eating right and exercising often feels. Both parents worked 50+ hours a week and never forced me to go outside and play. I hated gym class growing up, mostly because of the people staring and calling me fat. I will never understand why I ever let people get to me like that, but it took its toll and will be something I continue to struggle with the rest of my life.

I am now married and living far from home with another person raised in a stationary childhood (computers and eating). It is incredibly difficult to get us both moving, so now I move for me. It hurts, it is tiring and it brings up emotions that are sometimes suffocating to deal with, but it is all part of the journey.

Everyday I have to try to reteach myself good habits. Don't watch more than 1 hour of TV a night unless it is while on the treadmill, don't order pizza instead of cooking a healthy meal.

My daily mantra: I WILL DO THIS!!!
