My Journey

I've been overweight all of my life. As a child, my sister and I were in and out of the Doctor as our Mom tried to figure out why we were gaining so much weight. I've now hit 30 years old, and I can tell the consistency of the fat is changing... it's got to go now or I'll never know what it's like to be fit and healthy.

Fitness Minutes: 1,841

My Goals:
My overriding goal is to get healthy, where ever that may take me. I hope to live a long, full life, and know that's not possible when I am morbidly obese.

My Program:
I avoid processed food like the plague, take a walk two times a day for 15 minutes each. I also have a dance DVD I use on occasion, though I should do it more often. I periodically juice cleanse, since I've seen amazing results the last two times I've done it.

Personal Information:
I was born in Yakima, WA, then moved to OK with my mom when I was eleven. We lived there a few years, then moved back to Washington when I was nearly fourteen. We lived in Spokane until I decided to move to Portland, OR when I was nineteen, looking for better job opportunities. After spending two years there, I moved to Seattle to work for an amazing company that I still work for, nine years later.
