Dani's Getting Healthy Journey - I AM STRONG!

I am 27 years old and I am overweight. I have been married for a little over 4 years to an amazing man and have 2 wonderful Shih Tzus, Daisy and Gary. I suffer from depression and BPD and my biggest goal is to lose weight and keep my depression under control. Along with medicine, I truly believe that exercise will help boost my moods and keep me on top of my depression. (As of 8/24/12, got the great news that my depression is in REMISSION!!).

I am 27 years old and I am overweight. I have been married for a little over 4 years to an amazing man and have 2 wonderful Shih Tzus, Daisy and Gary. I suffer from depression and BPD and my biggest goal is to lose weight and keep my depression under control. Along with medicine, I truly believe that exercise will help boost my moods and keep me on top of my depression. (As of 8/24/12, got the great news that my depression is in REMISSION!!).

(According the the BMI charts for my height, the healthy weight range is 121-164).

After a brief hiatus at the end of 2012, I am back! I am ready to get on the wagon again...and this time, my husband is journeying with me! We are both doing the couch to 5k program this winter and we plan on running a 5k together. He saw how much running helped boost my moods and once I stopped exercising, depression type feelings creeped up on me. He is on this journey with me now. He wants me to be the best I can be. More importantly, I WANT TO BE THE BEST I CAN BE!

My goal is to go from 220 pounds to a goal weight of 160 pounds.
