CHANGE4HAPPY is a SparkPeople Motivator!
"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending."
Please untie the knots that are in my mind, my heart and my life. Remove the have nots, the can nots and the do nots that I have in my mind.
Erase the will nots, may nots, and might nots that find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could nots, would nots and should nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all, dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind my heart and my life all of the am nots that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.

OCTOBER 3, 2010 - I WAS VOTED A SP MOTIVATOR FOR POSITIVE ATTITUDE! THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO VOTED FOR ME! YOUR SUPPORT IS WHAT KEEPS ME SO POSITIVE! THIS IS JUST THE PUSH I NEEDED TO GET OFF THE REST OF MY WEIGHT! WOOOOHOOOOO!
At my heaviest, I weighed 308 - at my lowest I've been 148 and sadly I've been everywhere in between, yo-yoing for my whole life.
While a BMI chart will suggest that I should be under 150 pounds... I know that due to my bone structure, and muscle mass (I've always been "solid" under the fat) I am at my healthiest when I am around 180-190 pounds. It's just where my body is at it's best. I don't have to starve myself or kill myself to maintain it...
Looking for support from my fellow sparkers to keep me going!
Make 2015 the year I meet my goal, and maintain for a lifetime!
Lose 2 pounds per week, with small, obtainable challenges... slow and steady will FINALLY win this race!
Drinking lots of water!
Not counting calories - just paying attention to what I put in my body.
Eating clean - NO processed food! Shop on the RIM of the grocery store.
My name is Laura.
I'm 36 years old, and live in a cute little country town in Massachusetts.
I married my high school sweetheart. We have been married for 12 years, and have been together for 20!
I am child-free by choice.
I have 2 dogs (my dogters), 1 cat & a bunch of fish.
