My journey to self-love, health and a thinner me!

Hello everyone and welcome to my SparkPage! My name is Annie and Iíve been a member of SparkPeople since 2008. I didn't really start using the tools this wonderful site has to offer until a couple of years ago. Since then I have already lost 30 pounds and kept it off for over a year! I can't even begin to tell you how much my life has changed since then. Not just my health or my appearance, but the way I choose to live my life and the goals I set for myself.

Hello everyone and welcome to my SparkPage! My name is Annie and Iíve been a member of SparkPeople since 2008. I didn't really start using the tools this wonderful site has to offer until a couple of years ago. Since then I have already lost 30 pounds and kept it off for over a year! I can't even begin to tell you how much my life has changed since then. Not just my health or my appearance, but the way I choose to live my life and the goals I set for myself. I'm now going after my dreams in a way that I never thought would be possible before. I'm a much stronger, happier and healthier version of myself today thanks to SparkPeople and my amazing friends.

I've been maintaining my new weight for a long time but now it's time to start losing weight again. I'm getting married this summer and I want to look and feel my absolute best when the big day is finally here.

This journey is all about making lasting changes. It's about living a healthy lifestyle, never about dieting! It's about being active, making small changes every day, eating healthy, not denying yourself anything. It's about moderation, patience and taking the best possible care of yourself. It's about learning and moving forward even when you fall.

Iíve learned so much over the past couple of years. I used to be so impatient with myself. I used look at myself in the mirror and see nothing but flaws. Now I look at myself and think I look beautiful, even on the days when I don't feel my best. I think it's so important to LOVE YOURSELF and treat your body with the love and care it deserves. I didn't always do that before. Over the past few couple of years I've learned to accept that not everyone is supposed to look the same. There are different kinds of beautiful in the world! Not everyone is supposed to be a size zero. I no longer try to be someone I'm not. I embrace my curves and try to take good care of my body every day to stay healthy and happy. It has taken me a long time to understand that I'm unique and wonderful just the way I am. These days, I just feel really comfortable in my own skin.


Feel free to add me as a friend! I love meeting new people!

You are such a breath of fresh air. :) All of your pictures look so glamorous, and this includes your "Before" pictures. Good for you for taking care of yourself and presenting yourself confidently from the very beginning. Love the background, the fashion, and the dress in your new profile pic!!!

I've been having a very insecure few months. And it occurred to me that much of this is due to the fact that when I feel fat I stop caring about my appearance altogether. Time to start paying attention and acting like I love myself. Thanks for the inspiration and great job on the maintaining!
