I started this for my kids, but I'm finishing it for me

My name is Holly and I'm 38 years old. I was a chubby child, a fat teenager, and an obese adult. I began my journey at the age of 34 weighing 307 pounds. Only being 5 feet tall, I was about 160 pounds overweight, and going to be in serious trouble if I didn't change my life.

I'm a social worker for a hospital, I've been married for 13 years, and have 2 awesome kids who are 11 and 9. I decided that I wasn't going to be the fat mom anymore so I joined Spark in June 2010, and ...

I'm a social worker for a hospital, I've been married for 13 years, and have 2 awesome kids who are 11 and 9. I decided that I wasn't going to be the fat mom anymore so I joined Spark in June 2010, and started a journey to a healthier lifestyle not only for me, but for my family as well.

My weight loss has slowed dramatically, and a lot of that has been my own doing. I've changed the date to reach my goal to... whenever I get there. I'm too happy living my life to say no to a piece of cake, or a slice of pizza.

*5/20/2014* And NOT saying "NO" has resulted in a 25 pound weight gain... I'm still fighting and I WILL reach my goal!

Current Status:
HOLLYS_NEW_LIFE is thinking that "well... at least I'm not AS fat as I used to be..." is no longer acceptable... I DO NOT want to be "this" fat either. I need to get off my FAT a$$, and get it moving!

Hey Holly!

I hope you're doing well!!! I just wanted to let you know that I am planning on taking my spark page down for a little while. I have been using another app to track my fitness and food that I feel is a bit more accurate than here for now.

Add me if you have an instagram one_evil_cupcake.

HUGS!!!
