Where do I begin....time got away from me and I started to let life get the best of me with everything seeming to be going wrong now I am trying to come back and I see the pics I posted a year ago and I go again and truly need the help and motivation of all those around me. I can't let this get the best of me I know I was a much livelier person when I was doing more with myself. I let the bad weigh me down and food, depression, and lonliness became my survival but I don't think that was surviving at all that was just giving myself many things have changed and now I need to start the journey again....this time with my family in tow. My bad choices have led to their bad choices and well now we all paying the price health wise and this is not where I want to here goes it step at a time!!

    Your suggestions brought back fond memories of a group of people I use to run with. I was in my late 20s and they were in their 40's, 50's and 60s! You can only imagine how awesome it was to be around them and how much they taught me. Although I don't wish to run anymore, I still enjoy generating a "runner's high" out of a good cardio workout! Thanks so much for your suggestions! emoticon emoticon
