As a 17 year old guy just starting Simple Fit, I have more to conquer than just becoming "fit." I was diagnosed with UC (Ulcerative Colitis) when I was 12 years old, but I went into remission soon thereafter. As a 13 year old, I became one of the strongest basketball players pound for pound at my school, and my future in track and cross country looked promising also. After my eighth grade year, I was hit with UC again very hard. I lost 25% of my body weight... going from a top athlete in my class to a miserable hospital regular in a matter of two months. It's been a rollercoaster ever since. I had my large intestine removed in May 2010 (15 years old) and another surgery to get rid of my ileostomy and have a "j-pouch" in July 2010. Although I have gained my weight back, it has proven very difficult to get big and strong again. So, I have decided to get ridiculously fit and let God handle it all! So what's your story? Why do you want to be fit? Why is it so important to you!
