Hello World! Thank you for joining me on my journey to become a better version of myself. I will be 40 years old in a couple of months and have spent the past 15 or so years as an overweight adult. I have watched the world pass me by, wishing I could participate. If you’ve never been overweight or in a close relationship with someone who is, you may not understand much of what I’m saying. The world can be a cruel, lonely place for people who are overweight. If you are a healthy, fit, active person then you probably don’t think twice about walking around town enjoying the spring weather or parking in the furthest spot from the mall to go Christmas shopping. But when you’re overweight, these simple activities take on a whole new meaning. Life is meant to be lived, not just observed. I’m hoping that this blog will not only inspire others to take control of their health but will also keep me motivated to finish the task set before me. God gave me this body and it is His temple. He deserves the very best I have to offer.
