Slim Down Saturday

2015 is my year! I'm joining tons of other teachers in a mission to get healthy!
Thanks Teaching with a Touch of Pixie Dust for a great linky idea!

Health is my goal, not weight. I want to be healthy for my family. I want to be able to run and play with my baby girl. 

I'm going to put it all out there for you. I'm 188. High blood pressure, high cholesterol, I have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and I have Meniere's Disease.
PCOS makes you gain weight and makes it sooo much harder to lose it . Read about the disease (here).
Meniere's Disease causes extreme and sudden vertigo. Along with that, throwing up. It also causes deafness in one or both ears over time (I already have moderate hearing loss in my right ear).

Not much can be done about meniere's, but lots can be done about PCOS. Most of that includes being fit and healthy. 

Me in Middle.Yes, that is Leigh from The Applicious Teacher on the left.
This is me at 21. Before the PCOS made me gain all my weight. This is my ideal image. 

This is my now.
