Because I CAN control my weight.

My name is Chelsea. I'm a typical twenty-something college student. I've been married to my husband, Jason, for 4 years and we have two dogs, Suki and Rocko. I'm currently studying Elementary Education at Park University in Parkville, Missouri.
I've struggled with my weight most of my life. As a child, I played sports and the exercise made up for my poor diet. As I got older, the activity decreased and the calories increased. In January of 2011 was when I hit my highest weight, 210 ...
My name is Chelsea. I'm a typical twenty-something college student. I've been married to my husband, Jason, for 4 years and we have two dogs, Suki and Rocko. I'm currently studying Elementary Education at Park University in Parkville, Missouri.
I've struggled with my weight most of my life. As a child, I played sports and the exercise made up for my poor diet. As I got older, the activity decreased and the calories increased. In January of 2011 was when I hit my highest weight, 210 pounds. I vowed that I would not weigh more than my mother. With a lot of hard work, I lost 47 pounds and made it only 8 pounds from my goal weight of 155. That was August of 2011, Since then, I've gone back to school full time and have slacked on taking care of myself.
December 29th, 2012: I weighed in at 176 pounds. I try to remind myself that I have still lost a lot of weight. However, when I look in the mirror I am still not satisfied. I REFUSE to go back up a size. So I joined a gym and got back on Sparkpeople.

2013 marks a new year and a new resolve to meet new goals. My goal is to lose 26 pounds by summer. Not only for my self-image, but for my health, and for my students. I work with 5-11-year-old children; I have to be able to keep up with them, and more importantly, be a good role model for their overall health.

Here's to a new year.

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."

Just stopping by to encourage you to keep doing your best, Sparkfriend! You don't have to be perfect in order to make progress. Be your own hero today and every day, and keep fighting to reach your goals. It isn't easy, but you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane

"Whenever you make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long.
Mistakes are life's way of teaching you. Your capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from your capacity to reach your goals.
No one wins them all, and your failures, when they happen, are just part of your growth. Shake off your blunders.
How will you know your limits without an occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come."
-Og Mandino

"Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
-Tom Venuto
