Before I eat what I want fatty foods, junk foods, sodas name it. I ate them all. I never knew the consequences that will going to affect in my life. I'm tired of gaining weight and living same routine everyday. It was an awakening call for me to lace up and hit the road. It was very difficult at the beginning but I overcome the pain in my muscles slowly.

It's been a roller coaster ride for me to reach my goal to get fit. My sweat, blood and my determination to keeps me going on. I have experienced bully and discouragements, it pains me more when the closest in my heart are the ones who are speaking it out. Those words are my weapon in achieving my dream to become fit. That's why now I'm enjoying the fruit of my labor.

I've known this beautiful woman last September 16, 2013. She was one of the fastest runner I met, she was in the 7th place and I was the 10th finisher. Every time we run, and our path crosses we just wave or smile with each other. An ordinary gesture that a stranger greet do. When we are in Lake Sebu she was the first place finisher and I was the second finisher. That was the time I had a conversation with her. I ask her Ate(Big Sister), is the awarding of prizes is over? She looked at me and said Not yet. Then I was waiting for my name to be called. I was so happy and excited at the same. It's my first award. I saw her in my facebook page appeared in news feed. I was hesitant at first but to no avail I added her in my friends list. I was surprise she confirmed my request. We started chatting sharing ideas. Then we began exchanging numbers oh! I ask her number!hehehehe then we had constant calling and texting. Then she invited our group the Tacurong Runners Club to join their 16 kilometer fun run in her hometown. I was so excited to meet her finally after a month of not seeing her. Then December 1, 2013 we had our first hug. A hug that I can't forget. I felt butterfly in my stomach crawling and then it giggles me. I can't explain the feeling when she's in front of me. The feeling of cloud 9. The person in front of me is the one for me. I thought to myself. (to be continued)

Again I prove my self that I can beat myself by finishing 5 kilometer run with 33 minutes and 17 seconds. It is so fulfilling after the hard work paid off. It is more exciting to run with people you love, people who believe in you, people who look up to you as their inspiration to lose weight. I'm a woman who are capable of giving the best I can. I am a competitive person. I love challenges. My weapon is just I believe in myself. I have confidence in myself.
