January 18, 2016 I began a 12 Week Challenge at Gold’s Gym with a trainer who was convinced he could help me lose weight. This blog was started as a private blog for me to record my progress. As my progress increased, I wanted to make it public in the hopes of inspiring and motivating others.

To date, the trainer (Ryan) has helped me lose 75 pounds as well as to lose high blood pressure. My thyroid medicine continues to drop in dosage and my inflammation markers for rheumatoid arthritis continue to be in remission.

Follow along as I write honestly about my journey to reclaim my life!
