Hey my name is April,I'm 23 and live in the woods lol. I've pretty much struggled with my weight for the last 10 years. As soon as I hit that "puberty" teenage stage,my body went wacko on me. It's taken some time and the effort of going through many failed techniques,healthy and not,to gain control of my own body. The heaviest I have ever been was 210 lbs. in 2007. After reaching that weight I joined weight watchers and lost 20 pounds,getting to about 190-186,and then I quit. It was a difficult ...
Hey my name is April,I'm 23 and live in the woods lol. I've pretty much struggled with my weight for the last 10 years. As soon as I hit that "puberty" teenage stage,my body went wacko on me. It's taken some time and the effort of going through many failed techniques,healthy and not,to gain control of my own body. The heaviest I have ever been was 210 lbs. in 2007. After reaching that weight I joined weight watchers and lost 20 pounds,getting to about 190-186,and then I quit. It was a difficult time in my life and I don't think I was at the point in my life to really commit and take care of myself,I was too busy being upset and angry and blaming myself. But since then I have become a much better version of myself. I found SparkPeople in January of this year(2010) and joined that very night. i really haven't looked back since. I am fully committed to myself and my health. Yes loosing weight and looking good in a bathing suit are absolutely motivating factors lol,but being healthy and fit is also a big factor as well. And I think that is the main difference this time. I want to be healthy and live a good life with a strong body and minimal health issues. I don't want to have to go through some of the health issues I have seen family and friends go through. So that's a brief version of my weight loss story and why I'm here. I'm fully dedicated this time,to myself,for myself.

I'm April,I'm 23.I live in P.A. I am 5'9,one of the tall ones lol. I've got a great boyfriend that forgets everything,an awesomely dumb cat that doesn't realize she has claws or teeth,and a snake that likes to try and eat all of her mice a$$ first.
I LOVE riding my bike,it's a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja zx6r. I am officially sick of winter, I no longer see anything good about it,I want spring and summer. I'm a reader, if I find a good enough book, all I will do is read it until I have finished it. TATTOOS=AWESOME. I have 9 and fully plan on getting more.I love movies,all genres! My favorites are probably the ones from the 30's to 50's though,Betty Davis,Katharine Hepburn,Spencer Tracey,and Cary Grant are my very favorites! ^_^
