Hello and welcome to Spark!!! You seem to have a great attitude, and you seem like a very positive person with a nice support system (at home with the family). I joined Spark a long time ago and I love their trackers and the different teams. I think you will find a lot of things you can use for yourself. Check out the motivational stories. I read one every day on my phone and they really make a big difference for me if I want to give up. :)
I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come! * Diet is a dirty word. Every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate!

Hello everyone :) I am new to sparkpeople. I am excited to meet some new people, find some encouragement and support, and track my progress (there will be progress lol) Just a bit about me. (I'm going to throw it all out on the table) I am 26, have always been a active fat girl. My weight has gone up and down with numerous diets and exercise programs. If I were to chart my weight through the years you would probably see a steady incline since birth. With a few drops here and there when dieting, just to jump to a higher number then before.
These are numbers that for some reason have stuck with me: I remember being in 3rd grade and being weighed in front of my P.E. class. I was 125lbs at 8 years old. At 18 I was working in a hospital 10 hours a day and working out 3 times a week and 287lbs. At 21 I was getting married at 318lbs. Divorced at 23. Got in a bad car accident and broke my ankle. 24 met my now fiancÚ at 327lbs. Now 26 years old. Joined a gym yesterday. Went in for my workout tonight and stepped on the scale... 345lbs!
It's definitely time (past time) for a change.
I've done a ton of diets in the past, workout programs, pills, shakes....
I am pretty positive right now. My fiancÚ assures he loves me no matter my size. I want to be at a healthy weight for me, him, and his 2 kids. I love them to pieces. They live with us full time and I want to be able to play in the yard longer, ride bikes with them longer, and most importantly be healthy so I'm around for a long time.
