This iReport is part of an assignment:
CNN Fit Nation: 2014 Triathlon Challenge
Why not give it a tri?!?
Since losing a little over 100 pounds in the last year I am willing and ready to talk about the challenges of weight loss. The scale is not always your friend and you'll question how to reduce your wing span. You'll have more skin issues than you ever imagined.
But I am ready and willing to put in the long hours in the gym, willing to get a personal trainer and even willing to workout during a vacation. I know Rome wasn't build in a day and a triathlete doesn't appear over night .
I would like to complete this triathlon so I may become a better person for the people I see in my day to day through my work as a homeless outreach worker. The hardest part of my job is trying to continue to give people hope and inspiration. I know I can and will one day cross that finish line in Hawaii, I am hoping I can share my store with others through the cnn fitnation platform.
