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 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 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.

You said it exactly right -- Getting healthy, not serving a life sentence. That's exactly how I see it, and matter of fact, I'm stealing that quote. Hope you don't mind!

“The whole idea of motivation is a trap. Forget motivation.
Just do it. Exercise, lose weight, test your blood sugar, or
whatever. Do it without motivation. And then, guess what?
After you start doing the thing, that's when the motivation
comes and makes it easy for you to keep on doing it.”
-John C. Maxwell

Thanks so much for your kind words and connecting! I see we've lost about the same on our path, although I have much more to lose. And we both have so much to gain! Including friends. My Hubby, by the way, is from Kentucky. Haha. Are you a basketball NUT, too, by any chance? ONWARD!!! and congrats on your progress! emoticon
