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!

I just left my bike at work & took the streetcar/subway home. I'll ride it home tomorrow night . Really lucky to have that option & not be stranded...
We probs have a little similarity in weather! Don't get stranded girl! emoticon

I agree Mrs. not a Doctor! I always see a huge drop in weight (like 5lbs)right before & have read the same thing as you just stated. It just sucks that after TOM is over it usually creeps back. WAH!
I've also been kicking more butt with workouts, riding my bike to work & gained more control over food as of late so maybe I'm seeing a permanent move....maybe?hopefully? haha

I see what you mean with lent and that pin. I guess since this was pinned 2 days ago and the girl is in a Nike sports bra - I took it as a weight loss attempt versus lent? I know fasting is common in many religions per another comment on the blog as well, but this was an odd timing and her get up made me feel like it was more anorexic than religious. I'm part of the "just don't talk about other people's food choices!" camp too lol. We're all fighting our own battles! Hope you are having a great week so far!!!!!
