It's funny how others can motiviate us sometimes. For myself, my epiphany came from watching a beloved neighbor slowly wasting away from complications of weight related issues. I didn't want that for myself, and that's ultimately what started me on my journey a little less than a year ago. It somehow worked when everything else didn't.

Good luck to your on your journey!
