There are just so many reasons I wanted to be chosen for the Minot Weight Loss Challenge! I realize that I have been hiding behind my weight my entire life. It is time to face my fears and take back control. I want to learn to be healthy, learn to love and respect my body and to find my TRUE self. My dreams are to fall in love, get married and have a happy, healthy family. I'd like to travel the world and experience things without letting my fears and doubts get in the way. I'm ready to let out the fierce teacher who teaches her students that they can do anything!
