Hey! :) My name is Sara and I'm 26. I'm engaged to be married and my wedding is in September. I am a college student at the moment, I have an AAS in Marketing and a BS in Psychology. Currently, I'm working toward my MS in Marriage Couple and Family Therapy. I've been overweight my entire life, I don't know a time when I was in a healthy weight range for my age. In high school, I tried to lose weight but I just wasn't 100% serious about it then. And then in 2011, it finally hit me. I weighed in at 315 lbs, about 155 lbs more than I should be. My size 24 pants were starting to get a little tight and that was really my turning point. So now I'm done. Done being obese. Done having to buy clothing in a special store or section. Done being the fat girl. Done hating how I look. Done with everything negative. I can do this! And this time I won't give up. Other than my weight, I am absolutely loving life. I have a great family, friends and church who support me in everything. Having fun and laughing is a big part of my life, it keeps me in my regular happy and upbeat mood. :) I love spark friends and talking to people, so feel free! :) ~Sara~
