I am determined to reclaim my real self and start living healthfully again.

I lost 86 lbs 3 yrs ago, wore size 8, felt great and thought I would never allow myself to get fat again. In last 6 months, I balooned up 50 lbs without even noticing. I could blame depression, stress, surgery, break-up of a 5 yr. relationship, family conflict, BUT THAT IS JUST LIFE. Everyone has problems. That we can count on, but it's how we react to them that makes all the difference. I am sorry to say, I allowed my problems to get me down and I used them as an excuse, to give up, and ...
I lost 86 lbs 3 yrs ago, wore size 8, felt great and thought I would never allow myself to get fat again. In last 6 months, I balooned up 50 lbs without even noticing. I could blame depression, stress, surgery, break-up of a 5 yr. relationship, family conflict, BUT THAT IS JUST LIFE. Everyone has problems. That we can count on, but it's how we react to them that makes all the difference. I am sorry to say, I allowed my problems to get me down and I used them as an excuse, to give up, and that is NEVER O.K. I stopped caring about myself and began despising myself by engaging in all forms of self-destructive behaviour: staying up all night, sleeping all day, binging on the wrong foods, withdrawing from social situations, and eventually letting go of everything that is important to me my family, friends, church, health, hobbies, home and dreams for the future.

I am here to change all of that. I am inspired and moved by so many of your stories. God has sent me to this place where I can find the resources to regain my health and wholeness. I look forward to my journey with you fellow travelers. There is a new day coming. I envision a bright and beautiful future for myself and all of you here working on your own goals.

I do believe that is God's purpose for me. I can't believe I would have suffered all of that for nothing after all of the prayers and healings... Finally, when I prayed to Him that I gave up, He took over.

Hello and Welcome to SparkPeople!

I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come!
Diet is a dirty word, every time I hear it, I wash my mouth out with chocolate emoticon emoticon
