I’ve been fat forever. Ok, not exactly, but its kinda how I feel. The earliest I remember “worrying” about my weight was when I was in 4th grade. At a “height, weight and vision” check, I heard what one of the boys weighed, and it was the same as me! I wasn’t obsessive about it then, like I was later, but obviously it made enough of an impression on me that I remember it ‘til this day!
This is my friend, Karla. The dear lady who joined me on this weight-loss journey! We ran a 5k together last weekend, not quite a year after we started our quest to get healthy! It was a brutal course, but we finished (in good time) and it felt like a fantastic accomplishment! This was my third 5k for this year. I never in a million years would’ve said that someday I’d be a runner. But here I am!
