Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day.

Well, Hello!

My story thus far... I was very active in my youth, played sports, was concerned about my weight in the way most silly high school girls are, but was actually pretty slim, just curvy. As the time old tale goes, I gained weight in college. Still not horrible, just a little more plump. I had been in retail all of my working years...the kind that keeps you running around all day. I bounced around from 120-140 for several years until I took my most recent position as a customer service rep at a healthcare facility. I sit at a desk pretty much all day. I packed on the pounds and at my heaviest was 180. The day I was closer to 200 than 100 was my breaking point. I've used other programs, but have not had as much success or support as I have found on Spark.

I'm interested in all sorts of movies, books, art, travel, blah, blah, blah.
I went to school for fashion merchandising/design. I want to get back into that line of work. I need something more creative than what I'm doing currently. Also, something that does not keep me dealing directly with public. I've just about had my fill, haha. I live in a rural area, so changing jobs, let alone trying to start a career, is a challenge.

Glad you stopped by and I hope we can encourage each other on this crazy ride!

Thanks for the comment and care!
I am trying to push myself way too fast, you actually helped me realize I've been going insane trying to get weight off of me each and every day without trying to focus on making it a lifestyle. I need to slow down or I'll be back at this once I get to my goal weight...oh boy.
Baby steps is something I never do, I jump off the cliff and expect to easily land. I really need to take a step back and figure something out.
Thank you so much! I hope this works.

So long as you do a single fist-pump with as much power as you can muster in a fist-pump when he yells "SING!" will I allow this.

I am so very excited! I would be even more so if my back hadn't decided to ditch me, but that's healing up well-- only popped two or three doses of Ibu yesterday, instead of every dose-hour! We're knocking a ton of stuff out, my bachelorette and his bachelor party are on Saturday, and we're-- just-- ready!

I don't know if I can lose 30lbs of imperfection by 9/13, but I can keep wishing! ;)

I am pretty lucky that I get to ride my bike to work. It gets be there WAY faster aside from the fact that we don't own a car....we would be crazy to living right downtown.
HAHAh yeah your daughter probe wouldn't dig rolling up to HS all sweaty like...HAWT. I'm jealous of your area for running though so i guess we're even. :p

thanks for the blog love!

i'm just a really humble person so being in the spotlight is weird for me. I don't think I'm anything special,I'm not uber fashion forward, i just like to get dressed but also take pride in how I look. I also have to get used to it as my company I get alot of publicity, like, my face is on a huge window decal at our other location hahaha. get comfortable with being uncomfortable.

Yeah it was nice to get away. I am definitely going to do more of those, with or without the man. I have some travelling I need to do & people I really need to see that we can't always sync up.

I am all better now, I have a good immune system where I don't get sick often & it clears up fast.Regardless I am going to try the shower yoga for sure! new trend? hahah
