I was born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia but I recently moved to Louisville, Kentucky to work and eventually attend UofL to become a music therapist. I love life and all that it has to offer!

I've been overweight since I was six years old and I am SICK OF IT! I''m tired of repeatedly trying to get this weight off ...

I've been overweight since I was six years old and I am SICK OF IT! I''m tired of repeatedly trying to get this weight off and failing so I made it simple: this time I won't fail. I got back on the wagon Monday 6/23/14. I'm excited (and a little nervous) to see where this journey is going to take me.
