Starting over for Me!

Hi all!!! My name is Angel. I am 32 years old and I am a mother to 3 beautiful children. I gave birth to my 3rd child on Sept. 20, 2011. I gained 46 pounds during my pregnancy, and only lost 20lbs after giving birth. Almost 2 years later, I am now a stay at home mom and I'm trying to make more time for myself to focus on my health. I am happily married to the love of my life. My husband and I have been married 9 years and we are high school sweethearts; together 15 years. While my husband ...
Hi all!!! My name is Angel. I am 32 years old and I am a mother to 3 beautiful children. I gave birth to my 3rd child on Sept. 20, 2011. I gained 46 pounds during my pregnancy, and only lost 20lbs after giving birth. Almost 2 years later, I am now a stay at home mom and I'm trying to make more time for myself to focus on my health. I am happily married to the love of my life. My husband and I have been married 9 years and we are high school sweethearts; together 15 years. While my husband says he loves me exactly the way I am...I don't love me the way I am.

My story is quite similar to other Sparkers. I have had issues with my weight since I was a child. I am 1 of 8 children and its sad to say that out of 8, I was the ONLY overweight child that my parents had. I remember never feeling like I fit in because I was the chubby kid in class. As I grew older I kind of grew in to my curves which brought lots of attention from the boys...sometimes too much attention. During my high school career my entire family was insistant that I was NOT fat. Yes, I could fit in a small shirt from the Juniors section but I wore a size 14 in jeans while all the girls in school wore a size 2...yeah sure, I wasn't fat! Who was my family trying to kid. Needless to say I have NEVER felt comfortable in my own skin.

It is for that reason that I joined Spark. I joined in April '08 and managed to lose 13 pounds in the first month and then the stresses of life hit me. I gained back all 13 pounds and failed to keep Sparking. Well now here it is almost the end of 2012 and I've decided that I need to STOP making excuses! Life is going to happen no matter what; somethings good, some bad and I have to learn to work through them without turning to food for comfort. I will NOT let the stressful moments in life keep me from achieving what is truly important to me.

I WILL be healthy not just for myself but for the sake of my children. I want to be able to run around with them without running out of breath. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin. I REFUSE to spend the rest of my life in this OBESE body!!!

Thanks to all for taking the time to visit my page.

Happy Birthday to You!! Sorry I’m late!

Born June 8, you can be quite good at making money or you can be quite good at spending it, but you may find it difficult to do both at any one time. Indeed, you are the kind to spend what you have, to enjoy the fruits of your labors, and to share them with those around you, provided, of course, that they know how to appreciate them as you do. You can be somewhat snobby at times, and you feel that your taste is more developed and refined than that of most others -- and while this may be the case some of the time, it is certainly not the case all of the time.

You will have a sense, when you are quite young, that you are destined for great things. But you must never forget that to fulfill this destiny, you must be willing to apply yourself, to work hard, and to learn from your mistakes. Of this you can do -- and if you do, your success can be long-lived.

Hope your day was wonderful!
