As a child, I often found myself battling with my weight. By the eighth grade, I was pushing three hundred pounds. I felt as if I was trapped inside of my body, with no control over it. Eventually, I came up with a plan that included changing my eating habits and working out. I contacted a Newcastle personal trainer and together we set up a routine that would work with my own individual schedule.
Now, as a college student, I have cut my weight in half. My lifetime goal is to inspire others to do the same. There is no reason for someone to live inside of a body that is not truly theirs, and the extra help and motivation available today can turn anyone’s life around. Taking the first step toward being fit and healthy is admitting that you cannot do it alone. I know I couldn’t. So it is important to establish a support system for motivation.
