At age 15 i was over 60lbs over weight and had several health issues some of which the doctors said i would have for life, like exercise induced asthma. I was on the strongest inhaler, albuterole, nose spray (because i got sick and was on anti-biotics every month or 2.) And an Asthma "preventer" .. Also a worthless aller pill I would wake up in the middle of the night not able to breath and at one point was doing my nebulizer every 2-3 hours during the day... And the preveter following that. I HATED ALMOST ALL veggies, fruit and pretty much amything healthy and i had quit playing soccer that year. Well after watching my Uncle slowly die from his extreme obisity and then suddenly from a heart attack i knew i needed to CHANGE MY LIFE NOW!! SO I DID! I put that healthy determined mindset on and NO ONE COULD STOP ME!! I started to exercise at 20min and slowly raised the intensity and duration by 5min untill i got to 1hr intense workouts! I changed my diet and ate ALOT LESS and started to love salads and fruits n veggies of all kinds! I lost about 5lbs a month consistanly all the way to the last 60th pound!! IM happy to say IM MEDICATION FREE!!! I can breath 100%, I DONT GET SICK, AND EVEN THE ASTHMA I WAS BORN WITH IS GONE!!
I NEVERRR even dreamed i would have such amazing health results, i jus wanted to b thinner!
I LOVEEEEE my healthy NEW LIFE!!! So whoever you are out there who feels hopeless and depressed about there current health KNOW THERE IS HOPE!!

Just take that 1ST STEP and u can achieve your goals and WAY MORE! So tell me your story, Or the journey your right now*_*
This is amazing (: thanks for sharing. I use to say I hated veggies and fruits, but I never actually tried them so how did I know they were gross? Now the things I absolutely LOVE are broccoli, cabbage, corn, cauliflower, and a ton of other things I can't remember now. Lol. I'm not exactly a healthy eater, but if I could eat that stuff all the time, I probably would (:
Worth reading indeed!!! Inspirational story!! Keep up the great work!!

Aww thank u guys so much! To inspire and motivate you is a gift to me:) i support all of u in whatver health journey your on right now.
To answer the 2, well i know it was just the cardio i was doing that really got me conditioned and i slowly stopped using my inhaler untill one day i forgot to bring it with me for my run and i realized i could work thru it untill soon enough there was nothing to work through! :D
Also right now im just continuing my cardio and strength exercises about 4 days a week for about 30min-1hr and just my normal healthy diet keeps me on track!:)
