Freeing The Trapped Goddess Inside Me...

I joined Sparkpeople in May 2011 at 300 lbs. I was depressed and desperate! I could hardly move, I hated myself, I had health problems and in my mind, I had no hope for the future. I stumbled onto Sparkpeople during a web search and changed my life forever.

This website is amazing. I was so inspired by all the success stories and tools here that I was able to lose 70 lbs. in 8 months. I felt healthy, strong and happy! I had gone from a size 26 to a size 18.

I joined Sparkpeople in May 2011 at 300 lbs. I was depressed and desperate! I could hardly move, I hated myself, I had health problems and in my mind, I had no hope for the future. I stumbled onto Sparkpeople during a web search and changed my life forever.

This website is amazing. I was so inspired by all the success stories and tools here that I was able to lose 70 lbs. in 8 months. I felt healthy, strong and happy! I had gone from a size 26 to a size 18.

But, then I lost my way. I let old habits back into my life and didn't work my program. Slowly the weight crept back on until I could no longer ignore the problem. I had stopped taking care of myself.

I am back on Sparkpeople looking to find my way again. I gained back 50 lbs. but, I know I can lose it again if I do the work.

This is the right place to be to get healthy and lose weight. You get out of this program what you put into it. Track your food, drink water, exercise some each day and share your story because we are all in this together and we WILL succeed!

I am starting back at 280 lbs. but, I plan to lose 90 lbs. by the end of 2014. Every day counts, every decision counts, every pound counts!
