I am here to change my life.

I am 25 years old and am from Iowa. After I graduated college I moved to Texas to be with the man of my dreams, himself a former Iowan. Once I got to Texas and began a career I realized things had to change. For myself..and our future.

I have struggled with my weight my entire life. I have hated myself for the way I look for as long as I can remember. I have always been "the fat girl." Well, not anymore! I'm done with all that.

I want this more than anything, and it is only now that I realize I can actually have it. I can actually fulfill my dream of looking into a mirror and feeling good about the person staring back at me.

I found Spark people in April '09. Spark changed my life. It gave me a sense of accountability for my actions. I gained control of what I was eating and when and how I was working out. I made my health a priority for the first time. There have been ups and downs, but ultimately i'm accomplishing my goal.

I have met so many honest to goodness real people on here. Sparkers aren't kind because they have to be, they are kind because they care...because they understand. I am blessed to have that kind of support.

I will not stop until i'm standing before the world with a pair of old fat pants that would fit two of me..I want to be a success story..I won't stop until I am.

Thank you to all of the wonderful people who have supported me!


In 2011 I struggled with medical issues that prevented me from working out. It made me sad and caused me to crawl back into my shell. I gained back 20 lbs and I lost my way.

I got engaged July 2011, and I tried so hard to get back on track...but my health and the pressure kept me from my dreams. But the wedding is July 7, 2012...I have 6 months to do this. I CAN DO THIS! I WILL DO THIS! I've got to take it easy still, but there is nothing more important to me than doing this. I am taking back control in my life and i will finish this!

This is a year...I make ALL my dreams come true!

    Hey Sara,

    How are you? How have things been going? I've still been having a really hard time trying to stick with things, it's so frustrating! I finally got a job though.. I'm working at JCPenney. =)

    Hope you've been doing well and that your health issues have been on the mend.

    I'm trying to get back there too! Today's my second day of eating healthy and working out and I can already feel that this is going to take a lot of work and commitment on my part. It's definitely not going to be easy these next few months with the holidays lurking around. I hope that if I can get through the next few weeks it might not be as hard.

    I'm glad to see you have your spark back! Keep it up and keep on going! =)
