"I was talking to this crazy, cool chick today. I noticed she had something good going for herself; pretty, with a nice figure. I told her I think I fell in love at first site.... hahaha... I gotta stop talking to myself in the mirror." ---- Friend of mine K. McClain

"I am important to ME. If there is no ME, there is none of MY laughter, none of MY thoughts and opinions and definitely none of MY love. What kind of world would that be?" ---- Me, Tina Fite

"Quitters never win and winners never quit. Which are you? Me, I'm a winner." ----- My husband, Michael Fite

Hi, my name is Tina. I was introduced to this site by my nutritionist and so far, I like what I see.

A little about me you ask? Great! I'll tell you! I am 28 years of age and am obese (I know, awful word but hey sometimes the truth hurts). My biggest weight was 338 pounds and when I started this journey on March 2nd due to my two night stay at a hospital for heart attack symptoms (which eventually turned out to be panic attacks), I was 318 pounds. Lying there, not knowing whether I would totally be ok, I knew right then and there I had to change my life all the way around: physically, emotionally, and mentally. There is no way I could do this alone and so far I have employed everyone I could to help me in those areas. SparkPeople has been the missing link, giving me an opportunity to blog about my experiences and to meet others who are in the same boat as me.

Other than that, I am a full-time housewife of a sailor. My husband's name is Michael and he is my best friend and partner in crime (so funny, since he is an MA in the US Navy). We have no kids because of my weight (which will change by this time next year: 2011), but we have a dog named Lesko (my husband's former partner) and a cat named Primeau. They are a handful, especially since they don't get along but both are very lovable.

Well, that's me in a nutshell! My goals are to lose weight, start having children and enjoy life to its fullest! Hopefully, by the end of this year, I will be fit and fabulously healthy enough to do so. This is my goal.

Member Since: 3/15/2010

Fitness Minutes: 2,245

My Goals:
My starting weight was 318 lbs. My goal is to be 150 lbs by my 30th birthday which is July 24, 2011! Gotta get it!!

My Program:
I took out sugar, dairy, eggs, red/pork meat, made my diet very low sodium (1000-1500 mg per day) and I no longer eat anything that was not cooked by my hands. I also exercise everyday for at least 30 minutes with my light day being Sunday.

Personal Information:
Hey everyone! My name is Tina and I have started my journey to lose over 150 lbs! I turn 29 in July and I aim to lose 60 lbs by then. I have already lost 20 so I aim to exceed my goal weight. If you have any tips or any types of motivation, please send them my way. I'd love to see it!

Other Information:
I love cooking and baking and am now using each in a healthier manner. I am loving blogging on here and have begun to blog every Tuesday. Check it out! It is my way to stay motivated and my personal aim to motivate others!

    February is another one of those months when stores create magical candy-filled displays. Inside those foil-covered heart-shaped boxes festooned with lace, ribbons and fake flowers are chocolates that have been rattling around in their cardboard container since October--and they taste like it.

    Treat yourself to something sweet and delicious that tastes like real food--crisp apples, juicy grapes, fresh pineapple, or a perfectly ripened pear. Just say no to cardboard.

    Its funny you say that about the laser working for dark skin better because the place I went to said that the laser is attracted to dark pigments and since I have dark hair, I will have better results. My doctor was just mad cuz he was old!
