I am a WARRIOR

This is a fight that I may have not chosen to fight, but it is a fight that i MUST fight. I am a strong WOMAN, so I embrace this fight with arms wide open. I am sure that this battle will take awhile to completely WIN. I WILL WIN this battle, no matter how long it takes me to. When I win this BATTLE, I know that I will be able to WIN whatever BATTLE that will come my way. I am a strong WOMAN. HEAR ME ROAR!!!!

This is a fight that I may have not chosen to fight, but it is a fight that i MUST fight. I am a strong WOMAN, so I embrace this fight with arms wide open. I am sure that this battle will take awhile to completely WIN. I WILL WIN this battle, no matter how long it takes me to. When I win this BATTLE, I know that I will be able to WIN whatever BATTLE that will come my way. I am a strong WOMAN. HEAR ME ROAR!!!!

As a matter of fact, I have been preparing for this BATTLE my whole life. All the battles won and lost have made me the woman I am today. I will not be discouraged. I will stay focused. I will be VICTORIOUS.

I used to be a girl who would back away from the fight. Years later I was weak, torn, brittle and in a dark place. Some spark came within my soul and gae me the strength to climb out of that hole. This spark gave me the strength to look at myself and my life. I didnt like who I had become and I for sure didnt like where my life was heading. To admit that did not like MYSELF and the way that I had been living was the hardest thing that I have ever done. It makes this battle to lose weight feel like a piece of cake.

I am now learning to love myself. This is half the BATTLE. I am learning to put myself FIRST for a change. I deserve that. I deserve to be number one.

For me these changes dont come easy. There is alot of baggage in me that I am trying to deal with. Slowly I am beginning to put my life together again. I would say "put it back together again", but I can't think of a single time when I felt like my life was together. It is time for me to get control of my life. It is time for me to make good decisions for ME. I deserve to be happy. I deserve to be loved. I am stong!!! I can do this!!!

Can't take the country out THIS country girl. Small town girl he e living in the big bad city of PHILLY.

I am a RN working in a Rehab Hospital in Philly. I have been a nurse for over 12 years now. I love it and cannot even begin to imagine doing anything else.

I am engaged to a great guy (TEC I love You). He loves me for who I am, inside and out. He never makes me feel like I need to change to make him happy. He is happy with me just being me.

I also have a Orange Tabby, SIMBA. Our recent addition is a 3 month old Cockerspaniel, LEO. Wow what a bundle of energy. Cannot wait to get out this spring and take him on a walk with me.

18 months ago, when I began my weight loss journey, you left a supportive comment on my blog. I just wanted to drop by to say thank you. It's because of SPFriends like you I was empowered to achieve my goals. If there is anything I can do to guide and support you, please let me know! emoticon

well I'm glad I could help bring you back to the land of the Spark emoticon

& please know I'm proud of you for doing what you felt needed to be done to get your life, health & confidence back. You only live once - you only have one chance to get THIS right. In a lot of your post (before your surgery) I could tell you were sad. Life isn't meant to miserable, depressing & full of regret - it's about making the most of it. & sister girl - it appears that you have!!

It took a lot of strength & courage to share your decision w/ the world!!! That's proof right there that you truly are an awesome warrior chick!!!
