Journey away from 333lbs ~♫~♫~

First of all, WELCOME to my Sparkpage. You will find that I am a very decent person inside and that I am determined, respectful, learning along with you, happy, and appreciative. I have conquered MANY battles in life that I am proud to say I am still here, and here I am. This is my story:

First of all, WELCOME to my Sparkpage. You will find that I am a very decent person inside and that I am determined, respectful, learning along with you, happy, and appreciative. I have conquered MANY battles in life that I am proud to say I am still here, and here I am. This is my story:

~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~ ~*~
I have always been a heavy girl. Always been overweight since I believe the age of 10, I never knew how to eat and balance nutrition, because
I was never taught. I was so scared growing up to ask people for help because not only was I self conscious as everyone made fun of me daily ;(, but because everyone close to me were also yo-yo dieters, and I couldn't rely on that support... until now.

I realize that I finally changed for myself and if anyone wants to tag along with me, then thats great, i just can't be a follower anymore ;).

I am a mother of 2, with a goal of finally seeing myself live healthy. I am 5'7", my beginning start weight was 333, which WAS my highest weight.

I have 2 small kids that do make things a bit chaotic, and a sugar addicted boyfriend... whom I have been with 9 years... (2004)

I am a artistic girl, I love art in every way. I love photography, drawing, poetry, and I want to eventually learn piano and guitar.

I am very intellectual.

My overall goal is to get under 200lbs.


I would love to stay connected to women in my shoes who know what being large and unhealthy to finally making a change to an unknown world that we didnt know how to grasp before., and maybe even with kids, ha.

I am tired of being the largest female in my family. I have all the hurtful remarks growing up to fuel me in my workouts and daily accomplishments.

Never in my life did I realize that I could Lose weight without some miracle... and for the very 1st time, I am, and I can't explain the feeling. :)

Im READY to keep going. Lets empower eachother.

Continue to live a healthy life (and REMEMBER how depressing my life was in the beginning!!

My Program:
First, its all about staying motivated, focused and goal oriented. Pulling yourself up to continue the fight to be healthy and live longer.

I try meeting as many of SparkPeoples nutrition goals as I can. Drinking water rather than sugar drinks. I like to make sure i get exercize in even walking daily. I believe in this program, its the first time in my life I have ever stuck with dieting, became so educated, and am losing weight. I do it for myself as well as my family, but I've have to make ME a priority. I no longer rely on others to feel like exercizing!

Personal Information:
I am from Northeast Ohio areas. I love trying to figure life out, I like being a humanitarian- (dont forget to recycle and do our part on earth). I am a kind hearted girl inside, but I also had a hard past -so I can have a mean streak when needed. I protect the weak, and stand up for whats right. I fought depression for years, I have also fought drug dependency and have been "hard" drug free for 9 years =) and I have NO SHAME THERE, I am proud of what I learned! I am no better than anyone of people, we can all get along if we wanted, so please spread the love because it goes farther than hate.

Other Information:

~~~~Creativity Takes No Excuses~~~~

If it's important enough, YOU'LL TAKE
TIME FOR IT.

If you don't know where to start,
START ANYWHERE.

If you feel stuck, ASK SOMEONE TO
HELP YOU OUT.

If you're tired, TAKE A TIMED BREAK.

If you don't know how to do it, TRY
DOING WHAT YOU CAN.

If you believe that you can do it,
YOU WILL.

~~~~~~Happy Wednesday~~~~~~
Love all, trust a few, do
Wrong to none.
(William Shakespeare)
Sending you Lots & Lots of (((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

~~~~~~~~~~7 Lovely Logics~~~~~~~~

1) Make Peace with your Past,
So it doesn't spoil your Present.

2) What others Think of you is
None of your business.

3) Time heals Almost Everything.
Give the Time, Some Time.

4) No one is the Reason for your Happiness
Except You, yourself.

5) Don't compare your Life with others,
You have No Idea what their journey is all about.

6) Stop Thinking too much
It's Alright not to know all the Answers.

7) Smile..You don't own
All the Problems in the World.

DO these sound Logical (natural, reasonable, sensible, understandable) to you?

Have a Wonderful Week Full of Logical Days!!
