PERSISTENTTIM is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Hello, my name is Tim. I've been very overweight all my, one of the biggest obstacles has been my tendency to isolate and shy away from family and friends. I have decided to put myself out there, be vulnerable and trust this leap of faith will lead something great. At this point I have not left my home for more than 2 years and not worked in 7 years. I weighed about 300 lbs when I was 18, kept gaining through my 20's until hitting 600 lbs at 30, now at almost 40 I am getting healthy. My highest weight was in 2012-2013 when I weighed between 700-750lbs, I lost some weight and as of summer 2016 weigh about 450lbs. God bless!

Have you any old grudges you would like to pay,
Any wrongs laid up from a bygone day?
Gather them now and lay them away
Before Christmas comes.
Hard thoughts are heavy to carry, my friend,
And life is short from beginning to end;
Be kind to yourself, leave nothing to mend
When Christmas comes.

Hey you. Yes you.
Stop being unhappy with yourself.
Stop wishing you looked like someone else or wishing people
liked you as much as they like someone else.
Stop trying to get attention from those who hurt you.
Stop hating your body, your face, your personality, your quirks. Love them.
Without those things, you wouldn't be you & why would you want to be anyone else?
Be confident with who you are, smile, it'll draw people in.
If anyone hates you because you are happy with yourself,
tell yourself my happiness will not depend on others anymore.
I'm happy because I love who I am, I love my flaws,
I love my imperfections, they make me, me. & 'me' is pretty amazing!!
Remember, love yourself for who you are, not how others want you to be

To make your day a little brighter...
Begin with a little "spark"le, leave a little "spark"le wherever you go,
and don't ever let anyone dull your "spark"le.

God sent angels in your life.
Those are the people who will always make sure you are having a nice day.
They will try to make you feel better if you feel down.
Itâ€™s very rare to find true caring souls like that in our life.
Always show your gratitude and love for those special earth angels
that God sends in your life.
