Hi Everyone...I'm Kelly and I'm 32 years old and I want to feel alive again. I want to fit into clothes and I don't want to cringe at every picture I see of myself. I hope to have a child someday and it's just not safe to even consider at this time. I have 133 pounds to lose til I'm in a healthy weight range and sometimes it seems like a mountain but I'm determined.

I've put up some photos of my weight loss adventure...before and after and (not quite) before photos on my page. I've made many changes as I didn't want to die and I didn't know who I was anymore.

I've struggled with my weight ever since my early 20's and ever since then it's been up and down and up and down and so forth and so on. My highest weight was 370...and I lost over 170 pounds but quite a bit came back on over the last couple of years. But at least I know I can do it because I already have!! My battle with weight isn't any different than anyone else's...long term illnesses (I've had fibromyalgia since 2002), college, working like a lunatic, divorce, surgeries, losses etc... I let it all effect me in this way. So I begin today to become the person I know I am for GOOD--healthy, active, courageous, determined and strong. I can't look back...I can't go back. I know I've told myself this before and made tremendous change and now it's time to finish this. I'm going to stop being afraid to be successful with my weight loss and do it right this time. I want to show myself that I can!!!!!

Please feel free to say hi...I'd love to meet some new people who are doing the same thing I'm doing...Take Care.

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*

    I'm going to school to get my bachelors in health promotion and a minor in accounting. My plans is to become a certified health education specialist. I chose a minor in accounting because I work at IRS as a tax examining technician and I would like to become a revenue agent, so that I can get the pay grade I need so that I can apply for the jobs related to my degree with the government lol. I wanted to make sure that I wouldn't lose any of the money that I have put into retirement and things like that. As long as I get a job with the government, I can take all of that stuff with me :)
