My name is Jessica, but my middle name is Lani. Hence, LaniGettingHealthy. A year and a half ago I started a journey to a better me. I don’t mean better as in thinner, although that is an awesome plus. I mean better as in healthier. I have lost 55 pounds so far and I would love to lose at least another 30. I’ve worked hard to do all of this through nothing but diet and exercise. I was so tired of gimmicks and quick fixes. I don’t really believe in a lot of the “systems” that are out there. I didn’t want any more “diets”. I wanted a new lifestyle. I wanted something that I could maintain without being miserable. I feel like I finally reached that goal of finding something that I can do without it being a struggle. And ohhhh the energy! I have gained so much energy and have tried so many new physical activities that I never would have done before. In fact, many of them I couldn’t have done. If you have ever struggled with weight, I hope you have found the right place. I hope you have found a place of support, encouragement, and yumminess! Because let’s face it, life is no fun if you can’t eat good food!
