Hey! I'm soon to be 43 years old, happily married for 20 years and I have two sons, age 18 and 16. I have recently joined sharecare because I signed up to do Dr. Oz's transformation nation. I'm shocking myself a little bit that I'm going to do this. I've been working on getting healthy for a year now with a personal trainer and have lost 25 lbs and I feel better but I have a lot more to do to get me to my goal. Something about this(maybe the million dollar prize!) has gotten my attention so I'm going to give it my best shot. My ultimate goal is to be in the best shape possible as I creep closer to my mid 40's. I want to feel better, look better and live the best life possible in a healthy body! I've posted a profile picture that prompted me to seek a personal trainer. This was taken at a fundraising event for a friend with cancer and I won a 1 year membership to a local gym in a raffle. I really didn't plan to use it UNTIL I saw this picture and realized how much weight I had gained. Not sleeping well, drinking alcohol, eating fast food and no exercise had brought me to this. I needed help. I went to the gym, ask for a personal trainer and started my journey to a healthier me. I will use this picture each time I sign on here as a reminder to not get to this point again. I had no idea I was fat. As crazy as that sounds it is true. I think there was some divine intervention going on that day and there was a reason I won that free gym membership. I was there to support and help a friend in need and I walked away with a way to save my own life as well.
