|Where I started|
Chances are pretty good, that if I hadn't decided to change my life in 2006, this blog would not exist. For that matter, I, most likely would not exist. Pre 2006, I was moving full speed ahead into a casket. I shoveled copious amounts of garbage food into my mouth, smoked like a train, and drank like a fish. I decide I had enough. I was tired of being fat. Honestly, I was not fat, I was obese. On my 5 foot 5 frame I carried 220 pounds around. I wore a size 16/18 dress( that was tight ). I wore a size 18 pants ( getting tight ). I donned size XL or 40/42 size shirts ( they were not allowed in the dryer ). I wore a size 40D bra.

I wanted my first post here to show you that "I have been there". I decided to take control of my life and my health. It was not always easy, and sometimes it hurt a lot. But, I can say with all honesty, that it was totally worth every tear I shed and every bit of discomfort I experienced.
LivingOutLoud describes me to a T. I am very passionate about life and what it has to offer. I have learned a lot over the last 6 years of my journey and feel compelled to share it all. The good, the bad, and the ugly. The time to live life is NOW. What's stopping you?
