2012 was major roller coaster for me. I am at my highest weight ever- 254 pounds! I always said I would never reach 250 pounds well here I am.

I am in my early 30s, a mother of 2 sons & became a wife in April 2013 . I reside in Peachy Atlanta, GA as of May 2013! I had lost 60 pounds & got down to 160 pounds but gained all of it back & now in a size 20 (surprisingly again! NOT REALLY a surprise)!! When I started my journey back in 2005 I was a size 20. I am almost busting out of a size 20. I kept majority of it off for about 2 years..

I am living 2013 WITHOUT EXCUSES!! In 2010, I lived life with Excuses & just gave up after September. I gained nearly 40 pounds in over 6 months. That is just insane, at the rate I am going by the end of 2013 I will be well over 300 pounds (well not going to let this happen)

New Beginning & New ME!!! So now I take my life back into control!!! I will be glad to have back control over my life. I no longer complaining about it But I just have to do it!! I am a very upfront person & don�t like to beat around the bush! I honestly have a PROBLEM WITH FOOD!!! I am ADDICTED TO FOOD (SWEETS)!!

I am tired of being the overweight! This year~ I say goodbye to my size 20s for once & all!


***My FAV Quotes***

"When you feel like QUITING think about why YOU STARTED!!"

"Your ASPIRATIONS & INSPIRATIONS mean Nothing Without The DEDICATION & ACTION It Takes To Get You There!" by C. Wynn

My motto "You only Fail When You Stop Trying!"

"Looking GOOD HURTS ~ I'm In PAIN Everyday!!"


�Complaining Gets YOU NO Where but Action Will Take YOU Everywhere!!�

�Only YOU can CHANGE Your Life. No ONE can Do it for YOU but YOU. So if you DON�T like SOMETHING, CHANGE it; if you can�t CHANGE it, CHANGE the way you think about it & see CHANGE OCCUR!�

�No ONE Can Buy You Motivation, Ultimately Only You Can Find that Motivation & Push YOURSELF!�

�Stop Talking About It & Start Taking Action!!�

�You Will Make The CHANGES You NEED When the PAIN of STAYING Where You Are Becomes GREATER Than Your FEAR of CHANGE!!�

    Hi Cassandra! Welcome to the Spring Fling (Those Pounds Away) Challenge. This week, along with our basic challenge, we're also doing a special bonus for giving away something you no longer need or use (hint: how about some clothes that are getting too big!). If you have any questions, just post them on the message board or SparkMail me. It's great to have you along! --Marsha
