Hello everyone!! my name is Amy and i have been with Spark People for over 4 years. the support i have received from everyone here has been fantastic. i want to send a HUGE shout out to the Done Girls, i can't even begin to thank them enough. BUT most importantly my family ( I Luv U Guys!!) - they really have stuck by me through this and don't complain (to much lol) about my "new" lifestyle.

ok a little about me, i am 35 years young, i have a wonderful 15 year old daughter Raven. WOW...I can't believe I have a teenager!!!! since starting my journey at 250 lbs i have lost about 110 pounds, i still find it amazing that i had it in me, but one of the most important things i have learned is that i am so much stronger than i ever gave my self credit for. i have never felt this positive about losing weight and getting healthy. i guess you can say i am FINALLY ready to start living my life!!!

A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

You do have time to exercise.!!!!!!

If you have time to check email, watch a sitcom or two, surf the Internet, have drinks, coffee and dinner with friends, go clothes shopping, and on and on, then you have time to exercise. Yes, sometimes you have to sacrifice social, TV, or leisure time to fit it in. Yes, sometimes you have to prioritize your exercise time over other things. But your health and the feeling you get after working out is well worth it.

I really love these quotes....

"Things which matter most must NEVER be at the mercy of those which matter least"

"Nothing is Impossible. As Impossible it self says I M Possible"
