I'm still overweight and I'm still working on it. I'm eating better. if I can do it quite literally anybody can! I'm not fast but I did it and I'm proud of it! I just started the 7 Minute workout we'll see how that goes. Keep up the good work!

To be honest it is several things. 1st I survived Breast cancer and had a stint do to complications from the cancer. I had always been healthy but had gotten out of shape with the excuse that I will work on it later. Getting my health back, I hope I will never take it for granted again. 2nd I have threes 2 digs I got a few mo mon the before I was diagnosed and even though they where mostly puppies they sat with me through the process. I felt I owed it to them to be able to move faster and get out with them. My first 5k was the Doggy Dash they ran with me. So my motivation is the gift of being able to move. I am slow and steady it doesn't matter I am going out and doing it.
