I love spark people!!
I was the fat kid throughout my life. Even as a young girl I was scared to go on the fairs wheel because not due to being scared of heights, but since my older brothers convinced me I was so heavy, I would break the ride.
School was hell for me, since I have a collection of horror stories about the mean things people have said or done.
But that’s not the girl I am anymore! I’m stronger now, and love being me, thanks to spark people!
I joined spark people April 09, and worked my ass off to lose 20lbs. Originally weighing in at 210lbs, it was hard for me to open up to people and stop being so damn shy.
Coming back after my first school year in college I still maintained my weight of 190, however would like to finish what I started!
My goal is 140 and I'm currently at 187! I will be going on a cruise this August so hope to lose 25-30 pounds so I can look great in that bathing suit!

I always love meeting new friends, and hope you will leave me a comment or send me a message!

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

    Its going ok....not moving anywhere near as fast as I want it too! But I know I can do this, I did it before. Its just a matter of having the discipline and motivation to keep going. I'm taking it step by step and forgiving my slip ups and moving forward. How are you doing on your path?
