Making the 2nd 1/2 better than the 1st...

I have always struggled with my weight, usually it was just 15-20 extra lbs. When I 1st joined Sparkpeople in 2009 I had not yet reached my pre-pregnancy weight. Now after a stressful 12 months (unemployment & health issues with my dad & oldest son) I have passed that mark. This year I am determined to do SOMETHING. I am going to set small goals for myself and reward myself healthfully. I am going to truly smile and not try to hide my "chins." This will be my year starting today! Starting now!

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but
approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life.
And everyone deserves a little sunshine.

I embrace emerging experience, I participate in discovery.
I am a butterfly. I am not a butterfly collector.
I want the experience of the butterfly.
