Committed and Prepared to Conquer

I am a woman who has dealt with being overweight since I began puberty. Surgeries on my foot and shoulder haven't assisted in the battle, but I have also used them as an excuse as to why I can't do things. Enough is enough! I am ready to hit the ground running...well, that or jogging, walking, doing push-ups....*smiling*...BRING ON THE BATTLE! IT'S TIME FOR ME TO WIN THIS WAR!!!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to become healthy. I have about 135 pounds to lose. I know I will never be "petite", but thin isn't where I'm headed. I'm headed to a healthy weight, a toned body, great cardio, good strength, and having the ability to maintain a healthy body for the Lord's work. :)

My Program:
I am starting with simple walking and water aerobics. The weight on my joints prevents me from doing high-impact workouts. I am starting small and working toward relieving the pressure to all my joints. I will probably end up doing the "Daily Exercises" given on this website as well. I'll keep you posted!

Personal Information:
I am an outdoor junkie, so for me to be hindered from doing the things I love is hard. I have a wide range of enjoyments: kayaking, white water rafting, hiking, fishing, shooting guns, motorcycle riding, camping, tennis, volleyball, softball...and the list just goes on. Unfortunately, my weight has not allowed me to pursue some of these favorites...let's GIT 'ER DUN!!

Other Information:
The Lord is my strength and my song!! I place my trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. He is the One Who I owe my life and body to. I am a beautiful creation, but I have taken advantage of my freedoms. My body is God's temple, and it should be treated as such. I have been destroying my body with food and lack of activity for too many years. God deserves better! Thank you, Lord, for helping me through this trial...probably the biggest trial I have faced personally yet!
