Hi! I’m Kerry and I’m allergic to the gym. Okay, not really, but it’s felt that way for most of my life. I’m that person who faked a knee injury to avoid volleyball in high school gym class, who looked forward to her period as another way out of gym, and who has a very tortured relationship with a certain Canadian fitness chain as an adult.

I’m blogging here, at Overcoming Gymnausea, to share with you all my experience at trying to get a healthier relationship with food, fitness, and my body. I’m looking forward to having you share your experiences with me!

I’m attaching two photos of me: one from last June, Kerry in June 2008

 and one from last month.

Rocking a red dress.  

 I’ve come a long way in 9 months, but I’ve got another 50 or so pounds to go. It’s going to be quite a ride!
