BOTH loves of my life. Bliss bliss bliss...
The love of my life, Marianne
Hello! I'm a Filipina SAH WAH mom. In addition to taking care of my feisty and SWEET 3 year old daughter, I run my online business, PhilippineScript Designs, a business I started to express an aspect of my heritage. Between managing the house, being a mom, making jewelry for my business, church activities and working around my husband's schedule (who's a retail manager), my schedule is NEVER the same. My challenge is to find a nutritional program that has the flexibility that my days require. Because of our schedules and different food preferences, our family has relied on drive through and restaurant food several times a week. As a result, I have ballooned to 230 pounds. When I try to get fit, either my exercise OR my food does well...I haven't been able to sync these to get healthier. I've been terrified that I won't be around for my daughter because of choices I've made and let get away from me too often. I also have Hashimoto's Disease which makes me hypothyroid. I WANT MY CONTROL BACK!!!
I'm also a brand new Christian. God has been working on me for 13 years but I have a VERY stubborn streak. On the day I started with Spark People (1-4-09), I went to church for the first time in over 10 years. I was sitting in the parking lot, getting ready to go in and the only thought I had was, "Despite your best efforts, I found you"...and I couldn't stop crying. Needless to say, I was like, "Hey, God, can you give me a second so I don't go in there looking like a lunatic?" I feel reborn and ready to discover the body God's meant me to have my whole life. I can't wait to see it!

-I want to shop and leave with clothing that I LOVE...not just clothing that fits.
-I'd like to be a size 10!
Joined the new gym in the area with my girls!
Classes I'm dabbling in:
-Step and Sculpt
Seriously, sometimes I feel like my 220+ bod has no business being in there but as I say all the time, "It may not be pretty but I'm getting to the end!"
What I DO love about the classes is I have to push myself. Sometimes when I'm in the "gym" part I can be a little arbitrary: random machines, varying speeds on the tread etc. The classes give me a specific time and instructors who are looking to WORK IT!

Hey you ~ from the looks of Facebook, your business is keeping you very busy. Hope all is well. I've been doing well with my food and got quite a bit of exercise in last week. Haven't weighed in 2 weeks and have 2 weeks to go before I will again. Was going to do a new pic @ -50 but stopped weighing @ -48 so I'll wait until I weigh again so I can properly caption the picture. Blessings my friend.

You haven't been around much lately. Probably busy with your online business. Just wanted you to know that I'm still here for you. Let me know how things are going.
