Hi, my name is Samantha (formerly SRBROWN2). I started Spark People back in April 2011 in hopes of losing about 20 pounds; however, I have been on a bumpy ride since then, and I ended up gaining about 20 more pounds.

In high school, I was petite, and I took my physique for granted. Through college, I ended up gaining almost 50 pounds with the late nights, junk food, and fast food. Those days have led to lack of energy, mood swings, and sleepless nights.

For the longest time, I have hated my body for several reasons -- weight gain, illnesses, and lack of energy to name a few. This hate that I have has only produced a girl who sits on the sideline and now, I want to start living.

Quotes:

"Anytime you consider blowing off [a] workout for a million reasons, think twice. #makeitcount
.... embrace the 'me time'.
.... remember that not everyone is able.
.... not everyone has the opportunity.
.... not everyone can make it count."
