I ran into some Blood Pressure issues in February and finally got the fire lit under me. I saw a doctor and started a Diet and Cardio program to lose weight. Since it wasn’t a cholesterol issue, just a weight one, there’s a good chance that once I lose the weight I’ll be off all the blood pressure meds and finally be healthy. 
I was able to run a 5K for the first time since I started the program and to my surprise I broke my own records three times over in the span of ten days. Not to mention I’ve also lost 30lbs since I started. 
This is hardly over. I’ve still got a lot more to go. Here’s to reaching my second goal. 225lbs.
(NOTE: My highest point was 288lbs, but I never marked it on my weight tracker app)


Today I jogged on the treadmill! It was only for 60 seconds at a time but I JOGGED!

Like, when I first started working out I wondered how it was gonna ever get better. But I’ve been going about 3 times a week and my times are improving so much.

Then today I figured I was gonna jog my fat ass off for 60 second bursts then power walk for 90 seconds. It hurt and I was exhausted but I felt like a motherfucking CHAMPION!

Still such a long way to go. But it’s so encouraging to see and feel progress. I’m so proud of my body right now. Even if it’s the fattest one in the gym. ☺️
