The Journey of an Overweight Park Ranger

I'm a 26 year old park ranger at Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I've always had a love for the outdoors and love my job. However, I've always been a yo-yo dieter and overweight. I'd like to fix that. Here I go!

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it. - Groucho Marx

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've just celebrated my SP nine month anniversary and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all.

To celebrate your arrival at SP in this season, I would like to wish you a everlasting renewal of energy and passion, for this is a time to celebrate the great potential you possess. May the sun shine upon you and fire up your heart to reach all of your goals and find joy in yourself and the world around you. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may you find energy, confidence, vitality and strength. This is the time to shine bright and show the world how beautiful you are. Embrace the summer-lit brilliance of each day and you will create a new life where all your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle

OMG! I was just talking to my husband about you today!!!! We were all sitting around as a family dreaming of visiting Yosemite or Yellowstone or Grand Canyon and I couldn't remember where you worked. :)

If you get involved in SparkPeople...like really let yourself become a real part of it, it will change your life. I mean it. I would not have been able to do everything I've done without it. In particular, I was very very inspired by my friend, Robert (ON2VICTORY) who is now my trainer. Something about his story really hit me hard and that is when it "clicked" for me and I never looked back.

Now I've lost 25 lbs (10% total body weight). I lost that in 4 months. I have 83 more lbs. to go...but the weight is really falling off now that I'm running hardcore.

I hope you love running as much as I do!!! So happy to see you!!!!!! I miss you, girl!
