Marisa from Texas

It's hard to believe that I'm almost to my goal. Including weight lost before joining SP, I'm over 90 lbs. down, 25 more lbs. to go! Not sure when I'll get there...but I will get there! I will probably never have washboard abs and I will always bear the consequences of being over 100 lbs. overweight, but I'm doing it and I'm not looking back! I choose to love my body, just the way it is, right now--battle scars and all.

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. ...

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. Will resume battle after we have this little one!

Personal Information:
In January of 2012, I got to a point that I could no longer neglect my health. I was at my heaviest weight ever and was heading for a milestone that I never thought that I would get to--300 lbs.

I went to the Internet, searched for a 5K and signed up. In 2012, I did 3 - 5K's and 1 - 10K and lost 45 lbs.

After my last race, I started back with my old habits and gained about 15 lbs. back.

I've now started SparkPeople and have short, medium and long term goals to help keep me motivated.

"Sweat and tears are healing waters." Abby, Season 8 of Biggest Loser

"Weight loss is like driving: If you ever veer off the road, just make a u-turn and head back in the right direction."

Good Morning emoticon Marisa

Dropping by to wish you a fantastic week ahead and a Happy Spring, & say emoticon for all your support on my blogs. Hope you enjoy the following Springtime Poem.... emoticon

Spring of Life

When winter days give in to spring
and trees begin to bud
I can see all God handiwork
from the grass to the stars above
The joy and warmth the daylight brings
as the birds sing songs of praise
for they are also happy
for the earth that God hath made
and when the coolness of the evening comes
and the dusk gives way to night
we close our eyes and say dear Lord
thank you for the beauty of life.
