What are your fitness/health goals? My goal is to be able to walk challenging courses without feeling like I'm going to die.

What was the "trigger" or incident that made you decide it was time to lose weight and become more fit? I fell off a ladder and tore my ACL and damaged cartilage. Luckily, my husband was there. However, I knew there was no way he could lift me to help me. He had to get a kitchen chair and place it next to me and help me haul myself up. I had surgery to repair my ACL, and I weighed 270 at the hospital. I found out during surgery I have a leaky heart valve. I must get fit or I'm afraid I will die.

What do you struggle with the most on this journey to health? I struggle with emotional and boredom eating. I'm frustrated because I'm not able to exercise much yet because of recovery from my knee surgery.

What are three things in the area of diet/exercise you need to improve? I need to eat more vegetables, and make sure I account for everything I put in my mouth.

(Evil motivation ) Who do you want to look better than? My sister.

What can you not wait to wear when you are at goal weight or size? Non plus size clothes. I will cry the first time I can again wear size 14 jeans.
