HELLO to all and anyone who may be looking at my page! Ahead of time I want to say CONGRATS and GOOD JOB for the journey you have or will take to a HEALTHIER you!

I started with SP on September 10, 2007 weighing 225 lbs, the most I have EVER been. My first son (who we tried for for 15 months born in 2007) was 6 months old and I lost all the weight I had gained within 2 months after having him. I snapped into reality and realized I wanted to live to watch him and any other siblings he may have grow. I realized I had thus far luckily escaped the horrible amounts of health problems in my family. I knew I wanted to keep it that way. Growing up I had several health problems (according to dr's) but got away from them after childhood. I had a goal of losing 75 lbs which would bring me too the weight I was in highschool, which was 150 lbs. In 10 awesome wonderful hard work filled months I lost 71 lbs bringing me to 154 lbs. I then discovered I was pregnant with my second son (who we tried for for 2 months born in 2009). So weight loss got put on hold. After having him I eventually lost the baby weight, and reached my goal of 75 lbs lost! I then decided I wanted to have an ULTIMATE goal. A new push myself and get there goal. I decided 120 lbs is where I wanted to get to and would be my FINAL goal. I want 2013 to be my year to reach that and become a MAINTAINER!!! :) I am finding it difficult to lose this last bit of weight, it has been very slow and difficult. I am trying my hardest to be patient. In time I will succeed, because I have conquered SO many difficult things in my life I NEVER thought I could. I am trying and I WILL succeed just as you CAN and WILL do to! I will be running my 1rst BACK TO BACK 1/2 marathon this year!! When I run any races they will be listed below on what races and my times. I look forward to meeting new people on this wonderful lifelong journey along SPARKVILLE.

PLEASE feel free to message me, leave a comment, or contact me for ANYTHING. I am here to support you in any way I possibly can.

Take it a step at a time there are days I feel CUTE then days where I just feel like a big ol hippo and just feel worthless. BUT I do not give up! NEITHER should YOU! Thanks to all who have visited and I am here to complain to and feel your pain, because believe me MOST of us know how you feel. Just some of us have a hard shell. May GOD bless you with happiness! (with a little help from yourself) XOXOXO
