My name is Leah and this is my story. It’s a work in progress, as they all are. The back story is not so important- it’s what come next that I’m excited about.
But since the past does play a part in what happens next, I’ll give you the run-down. I’m 27, single (perpetually so, it seems), and overweight. The weight thing is pretty crucial to the story, as it has had the biggest impact on my life. It’s hard (pretty much impossible, actually) to really be happy when you’re so unhappy with a fundamental part of yourself. So I’ve spent most of my life just going through the motions, but not really living and certainly not enjoying life.
Finally, I realized that this had to change. Life is what you make it. So why continue to just barely live?
Okay, back to the the present. I’m losing weight, I’m getting fit, I’m trying new things, and I’m conquering my fears. But most importantly, I’m living. I’m taking advantage of opportunities that I would have previously passed up.
It’s about time.
