Thought I should Introduce Myself

I haven't always been into fitness and eating healthy.  I have always struggled with my weight, and it has bothered me.  I would try to get healthy, but then just give up because I was always hungry and tired. This went on for all of my teenage years and most of my 20's.

It wasn't until I found out that I had type 2 diabetes.  That really scared me, and I didn't want to be on the medication, because of the way that it made me feel.  So I decided that it was now time to make that change and do something about it.  I slowly started to change my eating habits, and continued to exercise.  I successfully lost 30 pounds and became diabetes free within six months of being diagnosed.  I have now been diabetes free for three years, and I'm way excited about that.  I am still trying to get healthier and loose more weight, and at the same time, I'm trying to be body positive.  I post about my journey on Instagram and Facebook.  I am hoping that it will help to be more accountable.

I have a wonderful husband that I have been married to for over 13 years and I have an adorable 8 year old son.  I love to travel, spend time with my family, of course take photo's, write, read, workout, hike, camp and watch some of my favorite TV shows.
