*****IF NOT NOW......WHEN??*****

Short version: I don't wanna be fat anymore. I'm tired of it. So, I'm gonna change it.

Read on for the long version:

Hi there:) My name is Talia, and I'm sooooooooo SO done. Seriously. I just can't take it anymore. I've lost track of how many times I've lost and gained the same 50 lbs over and over again. My highest ever non-pregnant weight was somewhere around 270, but I can't be sure. Honestly, it was probably more than that. With both of my kids I gained 95 lbs, getting me up to around 305 lbs on delivery day (again, probably more. That was the weight from my last doc appt for each pregnancy). Each time I got pregnant I had JUST gotten back on track, and had worked my weight down to around 210 lbs. Now, I'm terrified that that weight equates to pregnant. Illogical, I know. But have no doubt that I will be celibate between the weights of 215 and 205. Im done making babies, and I'm not taking any chances;-)
I first found SP a few years ago, and had some success then. But a divorce, a subsequent custody battle, a gall bladder surgery, a long painful bout of kidney stones, a stretch of unemployment, and then the foreclosure on my house derailed me. I gave up on life for awhile, I'm not ashamed to admit it. But then i saw a picture in November 2009 taken of me at a party for my boyfriend's charity organization ....and I couldn't believe what I had let myself get too. I didn't even recognize myself. Soon after that I got on a scale, dusted off my Sparkpage, and got to work. Its been a bumpy ride, but this chick ain't stopping. Ever.
So join me in this journey. Add me, leave comments, push me. I need your support, and I promise to support you too. We can all do this, because we deserve it. Never let anyone convince you otherwise.

You can also find me on www. tallycat.tumblr.com :-)

My Goals:
I just want to focus on being healthy and comfortable and confident. Of course I'd like for it to happen quickly (like, yesterday), but I know it takes work. I'm not aiming to be "skinny". I'm 5'7" and am very comfortable and confident at around 180-190lbs. I enjoy having curves:) But i do want to be healthy, active, strong, confident, and basically just un-ashamed of my reflection. I don't want to be soft and flabby. There is a right way to rock your curves, and a wrong way. I aim to do it right:)


My Program:
I tend to rebel against super structured programs, but I also know the importance of having a clearly mapped out plan. I'm just going to try to make each day a little better than the one before it, and then ride that snowball all the way in:)



Personal Information:
Yes, i want to be healthy. Yes i want to live a long and happy life. Yes i want to be a good example for my children. BUT.....
Most of my reasons are vanity related... for example, i've always wanted to wear one of those totally hot little halloween costumes:) I want heads to turn when i walk by. I wanna have sex with the lights on. I'd like to play twister without ending up in the ER. I wanna shake my ass and not have it shake back;)


Other Information:
i'm basically a nerd. think of a bunch of nerdy things to do and that pretty much covers it. I also read, write, and paint. but on the flip side of that (i am a gemini after all), i love going out dancing and I go to just about every concert i can un-earth. Even the really crappy ones, because i love music that much:).(i'm seriously a concert-whore). In my head, i'm a rock star, and no one can convince me otherwise:)

    Hey lady! I finally got to see your wedding pictures and read your wedding blog. You looked great! It looks like all your worries about your dress were for naught! I am so happy for you.

    Sorry, I was away from the world for a bit, I am back now, and getting back down to business. I have my own wedding dress to look fantastic in now ;).

    Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keep friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment. -- Grenville Kleiser (1868-1935), Canadian author

    Hiya! Just stopping by all my sparkfriends' pages with a little reminder not to take life too seriously. Have a great week!

    JEALOUS! I did Disturbed and Korn a month or so ago. That was awesome. Got tickets to the warped tour for August. I'm going through a divorce right now so while I'm insanely happy to be headed in this direction, it's also making funds for concerts a little tight. Ugh.

    Oh and love the new picture. Sexy!!
