"Health is my Life," healthmunsta

Hello! I am a 21 year old student, living far away from my amazing family! I miss them a lot! Being away from home, I ate a lot of junk food and my health habits were not good at all. Before I knew it, I put on a total of...wait for it....35 POUNDS! WOAH! NOT GOOD.

My poor health habits didn't only affect my weight, they also took a toll on my energy levels, mental clarity and social life. I was slowly changing from that girl who always loved to have fun, to that girl who's the depressed loner.

But it was when I could fit into NONE of my clothes, that reality hit. And it hit hard, baby.

I knew I had to do something about it. Right now I'm on a journey back to good health. Eating clean and getting lean are part of my daily life.

That's why I like to live by the motto, "Health is my Life." Because health is our greatest wealth.
