Karyne's advice to someone struggling to make a change in their life and health

Start now!  Don’t put it off, procrastination on your health is probably one of the worst things you can do. If it’s on your mind, and it’s weighing on your mind and you don’t think you can do it, it’s you, only lying to yourself. Don’t give up, just keep trying!
