I used to belong to spark people , years ago ,But when I decided to come back , I couldnt get my old account back,


My reason for leaving SP ,, I went to LPN ( Aug 2008 to Aug 2009) school and just did not have the time to come to SP. Then it was on to work an so wrapped up in what I was doing, I neglected exercise, I forgot how to eat right, I gained 45 pounds the first year and another whopping 45 lbs the 2 nd year. some how I managed to stay at 230 lbs and not gain more . But this is the most I have ever weighed in my life and I hate it.

I am ready to get back on track and get this weight off me . For good. the wedding picture you see to the left of this intro ,, thats me at 230 lbs ,, I never thought I could get so big.

Also I quit smoking , Sept 13, 2011 for good , Its been a month and I have not had so much as a puff, But I have these terrible , head cold like symptoms, have had them since Sept 20 ,, My doctor tells me Its nicotene withdrawal symptoms. I sort of went cold turkey on Sept 20 when I decided I was tired of replacing the nicotene patches every time they fell off.

Any way ,, I'm back and ready to shed the pounds and live a better healthier life.

Update 2/10/12
To date I have lost a total of 21 lbs , and Am still not smoking., Although my husband smokes around me constantly I have stuck to my guns and not touched a cigerette since 9/13/11.
