Hi there!!

Here is a little about me:
My name is Theresa and I am 26. I am the youngest of 4 kids, have 6 nephews and 2 nieces, amazing friends, supportive family, and the best husband and daughter that I could have ever asked for!

As a young child, I was always overweight. I played sports and stayed active but never lost the weight. I was teased, not bad, but it still sticks with me today and I would never wish that upon anyone!! It hurts. I am an emotional eater, social eater, and just plain like to eat. I am working hard to change those first two, and change what I like to eat on the last one!

I am a licensed cosmetologist, work part-time, and am full-time mommy to a my daughter, who has special needs. She was born with Spina Bifida. We have been through a lot the last 18 months but I wouldn't change a thing.

laugh uncontrollably, workout, walk/jog, read, write down my thoughts, talk, text, drive (not all at once!), make people smile, help people see their true beauty-inside and out!, learn new things, take pictures, swim, dance, style hair.

my friends, family, my husband, and my daughter.

My 2010 journey:
I have always been heavier-set. My highest I have ever been has been around 185ish. I started SERIOUSLY using SP on 1.13.10 at a weight of 164lbs. I lost those first 21 lbs just by cutting back here or there, nothing consistent though. I have a goal weight of 145lbs, possibly lower depending how I look/feel. I am pear shaped and I have never been lower than 145lbs so we will just have to wait and see on that one :)
My 2011 journey:
I have been letting my eating habits slack due to stress but I do not want to go back to where I was so I am putting my foot down. I am getting MARRIED in May and even though I will not be to my goal weight by then, I can be healthier and feel better about myself.

My 2014 Journey:
I had two abdominal surgeries 5 weeks apart (Fetal Surgery at 25w3d pregnant and C-Section at 30w3d) back in 2013. My daughter is now 15months.
I am the heaviest I have ever been, not pregnant (highest was 221lbs). I want to do things with and for my daughter as she grows up and show her that with hard work, she can do anything. I have already started losing weight (5lbs) and will keep going this time. I want my outside to match my inside! :)

If you read all of that and make it this far, I hope you remember this, if nothing else, SMILE! A smile is the simplest thing someone can do, and you never know who you are helping with that one smile! Plus, it takes more muscles to frown than to smile! :)

Have a great day!
