Being healthier, more active has become a fire within me. Over the last ten years I’ve had back surgery, flirted with high blood pressure, suffered excruciating headaches and descended into depression so deep, so intoxicating , I feared I would never come to surface. In spite of my family history which includes obesity, diabetes, mental illness and the like, I never believed I could be afflicted by anything of that magnitude. Ah! Youth!

But something happened. I took baby steps and gained and somehow adopted a renewed sense of self. Baby steps. All I could do was baby steps. Lord knows the weight I’d steadily accumulated didn’t happen in a day and it took years to gain some ground.

I am an active, involved woman --very busy with job, family, and various outside interests. I don’t want to leave a legacy to my sons by making poor choices by not caring for myself adequately.

I want to continue getting around on my own accord. I want to continue to live my live to the fullest!

And I want to be sexier! I want to feel good in my skin at 54-years-old, I am!
