    I woke up today with a strong mentality today.

    I have always complained about being overweight and whatnot and well today will/is the day that I'm going to change my life and my lifestyle. A year ago I lost 20lbs and was, I guess, satisfied. I got sick and they had me take 16 pills a day, that included steroids. So I...

    I want to live. Lately I was wondering

    why I can't have the past back, or why it can't be here today. But life passes by in a second, as where expected in that short time to make a life that's worth well. It's possible. It really is.

    I recently realized that I just want a change.

    I'm tired of hating the direction in which my life goes, because I want to become a person that I enjoy being.

    Recently I turned 50 years old.

    Since then, I've been taking stock in my life and I've found that many things are not as I want or need them to be. I have a job that requires a lot of time. I usually work 12/14 hours a day. I noticed that I'm taking care of everyone else's needs but mine. I am not living the...

    Did a half hour on the bike

    and my legs still don't feel any slimmer or more toned. It's going to be a long journey. I do love my womanly curves but now I'm really missing my high school track body.
