When I look in the mirror I don"t see me anymore but with a little motivation I can change that :)

My name is Karie. I was never the skinny girl, but never overweight either. I was just normal and I liked the way I looked. This past year I got engaged and during my 9 month long engagement I managed to gain nearly 40lbs and I out grew 2 wedding dresses. I settled for a small back yard wedding because I felt like if we had the large wedding we had planned than all of our friends would see me and how fat I had become.

I settled for a small back yard wedding because I felt like if we had the large wedding we had planned than all of our friends would see me and how fat I had become. We've been happily married for 9 months now and the only thing that I've found in my life that is un happy is my weight. I weigh 173 lbs and at my height 5'3 that's alot. I wear a size 14-16 in clothing and am generally miserable about it. I"ve tried everything but the weight wouldn't budge. I found out that my thyroid was mostly to blame for such quick weight gain (coupled with bad eating habits) and I've tried to get the weight off a few times only to fail and go back to junk food after a few days. Last night I signed up for spark people determined to make a change. I am eating lean protien, fruits, veggies, and good carbs vs bad. I have determination and i will succeed!!

Found this poem while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Anything is Possible
By Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.
DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
