Anything else you would like to share with us:Its hard because my fiance stills likes to eat unhealthy. He supports me however, he refuses to give up the fried foods and everything else. My journey would be easier if I had a workout buddy. I havent been talking to many ppl because sometimes ppl can be so negative. I think I am so focused because many ppl dont think I can do it. I know Im not fat but Im not healthy. I am ready to start living again instead of hiding!

Height: 5'4"
