At 22 years old, my weight had become a serious health issue 💊
At my heaviest… when I was obese (not chubby or fluffy or overweight. Clinically obese) and over 300 pounds, I was teetering on the edge of pre-diabetes. I had hypothyroidism and blood pressure problems. The fat around my midsection made me an almost inevitable candidate for heart disease. I was barely in my 20s and, at best, heading down a road of medications, diseases, and disorders for the rest of my life. At worst, I was killing myself. In Spring 2014, after graduating college, I decided to take charge of my life and make a change. Fitness and health have gone from a burden to a passion.
