Hi everyone!

My name is Ali (I am half British, a tiny bit Polish and Native American) and I currently live in Arizona while my boyfriend (who is African American) finishes up college, then we are moving back to California (where I am originally from).

I recently graduated from college and am working full-time for an advocacy organization. I have reached a time in my life where 220 pounds is the most that I ever want to weigh and I need to lose weight to become more healthy. I don't have any kids but am planning on it and want to be around for my future husband and children - I can't wait to have beautiful kids with him, I picture them being perfect, just like everyone pictures their future kids I'm sure.

I look forward to getting to know people and finding the support that I have been lacking in my life and giving encouragement where I can to others :)

Hi! emoticon

LOTS OF ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOU SHERICE AND OTHERS IN THE SAME BOAT! All I can say is you HAVE to have a wicked sense of humor to stay positive. Stay at home mom currently, LOVE all kinds of music, and I love to keep things simple.

We move around a lot so we only live with the necessities-anything that can be packed up effortlessly. For that reason I only shop for food and only basic clothes for 2 growing boys. No frills and needless gadgets and clutter because when it comes time to move it will not be so fun.

Hello there!

I am one culturally,racially,and ethnically diverse lady that has been inspired by so many throughout my life time that I feel that I am so blessed and so proud of having the opportunity to experience the best that God has to give of each of us.
I am even more proud of the mixed family that I have. It didn't just start with the present generation but after studying my family tree found that the apple didn't fall too far from the tree!

With this diet thing.. my worst fear is NOT being able to eat the foods that i love and have eaten faithfully each year at one time or the other. But, if I want to lose some of this weight I have to figure out what is most important!

Looking forward to be a participant with this group.

I lost 78 pounds with SparkPeople and I've gained most of it back because I didn't make a PERMANENT lifestyle change; I'm back because I know the support here is an essential component to success. I'm practicing the EAT TO LIVE lifestyle and feeling healthier and happier every single day.
