HOLY CRAPOLI I'VE LOST 93 LBS WITH SPARKPEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOTE: I've lost 93lbs with SparkPeople and have lost ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN POUNDS total! As of August 28, 2014 I am working on maintaining that loss.

My name is Andrea, I'm 35, married, so far childless and looking to lose some extra pounds! I don't want to be a stick, but I want to be healthy, and I don't want to be plus-sized anymore. I'm aiming for an 8 as an ultimate goal, since I've never been thin enough to wear a 8, and it's a single digit, woot woot! (I'm currently in a 10, and if the 8 I wear is a pair of stretchy pants I'm totally cool with not going below a 10.) ETA June 2014 - I currently own a SIZE 8 pair of capris!! ETA November 2014 - I also own a size 6 in dress pants! ETA Sept 2015 I have several pairs of size 6 things!

I have a wonderful husband and a 5 year old Boston Terrier named Bingley who is like my child. (No I don't walk him in a stroller or anything, but I love him just as much as I would my own child.)

Personal Information:
Blackwood, NJ.

I was born and raised in South Jersey, just outside of Philly. I've been up and down the East Coast and abroad and I still love my state. Judge not a state by it's Turnpike. =)


Other Information:
I believe in equality for all people: men, women, whites, blacks, asians, hispanics, gays, straights, transexuals, transgenders, etc. As long as you don't try to take MY rights away or try to cram your beliefs down my throat, we're cool. =)

    ROWDY REBELS REPEAT AFTER ME...I ACCEPT AND LOVE MY BODY AS IT IS, AND WORK TO MAKE IT BETTER EACH AND EVERY DAY!

    Despite what is going on in your life right now, always remember to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and YOUR GOALS. You make the choice to start over again, to push yourself just a little farther and to shine in the midst of the darkness.

    DON'T SETTLE. BE A REBEL!

    Stay encouraged and remember that every accomplishment starts with a decision to try. Life is a journey. I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

    Success seems to be connected with an action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.
