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

My name is Holly and I'm 39 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 14 years, and have 2 awesome kids who are 12 and 10. 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 14 years, and have 2 awesome kids who are 12 and 10. 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.

*10/20/2014* And NOT saying "NO" has resulted in a 40 pound weight gain... I'm still fighting and I WILL reach my goal!

Thank you SO SO much for the kind comments on my blog. I really needed them. I never realized how hard this struggle would be, but seriously love your suggestions and your whole outlook on life. My family and friends don't know how to help me as they know how unhappy I've been. I can't get over how much love and support I get from this website. I couldn't do without you all. You in particular have been an inspiration since day 1! Thank you!

Hello Holly,

How are you? I haven't been on here much since my dad and grand baby passed away. I'm slowly working my way back girl.

Thanks for the feed support and for being a great friend.
