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!

Cowards never start. The weak never finish. Winners never quit...

Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It's the courage to continue that counts...

yay!! I'm so glad you said that! My friends/coworkers tend to be very flaky when it comes to fitness activities. I had a group of people to do a mud run in April, but everyone backed out at the last minute and we never registered. So, I decided I am doing this one for one. If they sign up...great. If not, I will be doing it with all the other fabulous ladies in the race and make some new friends that day. To often I hold myself back because other people don't want to join in. So I'm doing it for me! Maybe some Houston Spark people will be there??? I didn't think of that before you mentioned it! :D
