    CNN Fit Nation: 2013 Triathlon Challenge

    Please help me make a change

    Howdy everyone!! My name is Rocio Palomares and I am 33 years old. I'm originally from Georgia, but I have lived in Denver for the last 2 1/2 years to attend grad school. There is always a 5k or triathlon going on somewhere inColorado all the time and every time I tell myself that I'm going to be in the next one. That story has been going on for god knows how long now. I work full time in the mental health field and I am one class shy of completing a masters in Marriage and family therapy. I have somehow allowed my busy schedule for the last 2 1/2 years to dictate my lifestyle and I have not made time for myself. I have gained at least 40-50 lbs and I hardly recognize myself. I used to be very active and now I go straight to the couch when I get home. I want nothing more than to be able to feel good and like what I see in the mirror. In my line of work I encourage people everyday to do what they really want to do and we work together to make it happen. I can't seem to do this on my own. Please help me! Please pick me and I will try my absolute best to give Dr. Gupta a run for his money in Malibu next year.
    Thank you very much,
