What is your goal in this Fitness Challenge? My goal is to lose at least 50 pounds to start. A good achievable goal.

Why did you apply for the Fitness Challenge?

Living as a heavy girl is a very hard struggle not just physically but emotionally as well. I want to be as beautiful on the outside as well as the inside. Beauty comes from within and boy do I have that down pat. Now It’s time to see the physicalness shine. I want to not be Makensie and Ray’s fat mom. I want to run and play and enjoy not just my life but the REST OF MY LIFE AND THIS IS A GREAT START. Thank you so much for this opportunity… I won’t let you or myself down.
