My newest headshot for work. Amazing how much happier I look right?





Senior Year of College January 2011. Scary thing is I thought this was a great pic of myself.





I'm so happy that I'm getting healthy for the rest of my life with this man.



I have 42 pics in my gallery

Hi Everyone!

My name is Jan-Marie. My weight has always been an issue for me. I'm hoping to stay motivated by being actively involved in the Spark community. Knowing that people are willing to support me having never met me before is a really great feeling. Thanks in advance for your support.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal was originally 145, but I've decided 155 is more realistic, achievable, and maintainable for me.

I want to be happy and healthy and feel good about my body and myself.

I'm newly engaged (4-12-13) and I definitely know I don't want to have to buy a plus size wedding dress.

Use the nutrition tracker every day.

Do cardio 3-4 times a week.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.



Personal Information:
I'm a 24 year old grad recent college grad with a Master's in Educational Research and Evaluation. I'm from Ohio but I am a Bobcat NOT a Buckeye.

A healthy weight for me would be from 121-164 but I'm aiming for around 155.
