I love scuba diving- I don't yet love being in a bathing suit with other divers on the boat.





Agreed!

Things don't change; we do.

Hi there! My name is Amy and I live in the San Francisco bay area. I'm starting over again and determined to make this the final time I will need to lose a substantial amount of weight. I lost my dad recently (Oct 2013) and it really woke me up to the importance of good health. It will be a long road with its up and downs, but if there is anything that SP has taught me, it's to never give up!

We can do this!

are self imposed & chosen out of fear,
We would leap at once."

"Here's to US. Here's to ordering a salad when you really wanted a burger. Here's to making an ass out of yourself in combat cardio class. Here's to drinking more water than you thought was humanly possible. Here's to 5 more minutes on the elliptical. Here's to working out twice as much as your skinny friend. Here's to saying goodbye to the old you & falling in love with the new, improved, healthier you, the YOU that you really are, the YOU that you are becoming. Here's to looking in the mirror or jumping on the scale & seeing no changes BUT putting on your Nike's & hitting the gym anyways. Here's to carrots & shin splints & sweatshirts & perseverance & sore muscles & stinky socks & 7am Yoga classes & falling down & getting back up - - -And here's to doing it all over again tomorrow."

Never stop pushing for those BIG dreams, Friend!!
Better health & happiness is within your reach!
Never give up on YOU!! You're worth the fight!!!

Stay Positive, Change IS Coming,

Jes

"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they are going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them ALL the care, kindness & understanding you can muster & do it with no thought of ANY reward. Your life will NEVER be the same again."

Sweetheart,

Always remember that a few nice words or one thoughtful gesture can turn around someone's ENTIRE day!!! Every act of kindness, no matter how small, has a ripple effect - - Dare to be the reason someone smiles today:) :) :)

Hugs,

Jes
