    I WILL run this summer.

    I WILL lose weight. I WILL look good for my senior year. (And years to come). I WILL be healthier. I WILL get that body I've wanted. I WILL go down a couple of sizes. I WILL dedicate my summer to my health. I CAN and I WILL. No more excuses, Alice.

    Walking alone is all I've ever done in life.

    I hate being alone and I hate being on this journey alone but I'm going to stick with it because I want to be back to my old self. When I was healthy. Now that I'm on the mend, I'm hoping I can come back and wrote to you all how I've reached my accomplished weight goal!
