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 14 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 14 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.

*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!

Hi Holly! Well last year I lost 65 pounds at my best weigh in. Fell off around Thanksgiving and found my self having gained back like 25pounds. Brushed myself back off, jumped back in the saddle and lost 5 pounds last week. I am down 45 right now. 36 more and I can kiss the 200's goodbye. I mainly use my fitbit but pop in here occasionally.

I haven't been on SP in a while and I was wondering how you are doing. You are one of the first Sparkfriends I made here, and I'm thinking, where is everybody? lol. I know I've fallen off too.

emoticon for commenting on my blog. It was great to get your perspective after having the success that you have! It's not something that will stop me from trying but just a thought that I had and was worried about and getting the comments I did have put my mind at ease for now..seeing so many different results proves that it is not for sure going to happen to me..but it could. Thanks again for your support!
