Hey, everyone. For months I’ve been struggling to get the exercise I need to help my various health conditions. So a few weeks ago I started paying for a new bike. I always loved going on bike rides in my teen years - it’s a type of exercise I really enjoy and therefore won’t get bored of.

My mum (who is overweight like me but not sick) also got one. We cycled them home and I have to say... It was the best I’d felt in a long time. The gentle ache and burning in my muscles was amazing. For the first time in a long time I felt like I could do something RIGHT. That things were taking a step in the RIGHT direction. Forwards. Onwards and upwards.

I have about 80lbs that I need to lose and diabetes that needs to be better managed. This will hopefully give me the opportunity to help both. I’m so excited for my journey forwards.
