Welcome to my spark page! My name is Emma Corrigan.
I'm a 25 year old Canadian girl, who loves anything that glitters! I enjoy cooking, writing, reading, going for long walks with music and I tend to put my Christmas lights up the day after Halloween!
I come from a large family with two sisters and three brothers. When you grow up in a large family, you learn one main thing... eat before someone else eats it first.

This is the second time I join Sparkpeople.
(For anyone stopping by, I love making new friends so leave me a comment and add me!)
The first time I started at 210lbs and lost 21lbs and weighed in at 189lbs. I felt AMAZING!

Sadly, life happened. Breakups, new jobs, moving out on my own and I lost my way. I gained back all of what I lost, plus some. Now 5 years later I reached an all time high of 230lbs.

Despite my weight, I'm at the point in my life where I'm very thankful for everything I have. I'm in love with my best friend, and one of the most amazing men in the world. I gained 3 step daughters, Suriya (6) Skylee (5) and Sienah (3). They bring so much joy to my life and inspire me everyday to better myself.
I now stumbled upon an amazing job that I LOVE, working as a clinic receptionist/lab tech/medical billing specialist.

However, no matter how happy I am with my life, I have something that will always haunt me... my weight.
Some say the day they began their healthy journey was the day that something just clicked... I'm lucky enough to know what clicked for me.
I was laying in bed late one night looking at photos of me at 189. My boyfriend looked over my shoulder and said so simple, "Your smile... you look so happy in those photos. I miss that smile."
It was the days of working out, drinking water, and eating within my calories... I want to feel that way again.
I want to see what I look like under this weight.
I want to go shopping and not have to worry about clothes not fitting in the store.
I want to not get winded from a flight of stairs.
I want to go to bed each night proud of the food I had put in my mouth.
I want to shock people.
And I want to smile like I used to.

My Program:
My program isn't to lose weight, it's to change the life style I made for myself.

I want to be that person that I know I can be. I want to feel great about my body, sure, but more importantly I want to feel the feeling of pride when I pick salad over fries, and glory when I finish a workout!
I want to feel good about the choices I make and from there I know my weight will follow.
