evolution of me

Hello and welcome to my sparkpage... I am Gavin. I'm 24! and I live in St Paul MN. I've been overweight my whole life. But after high school I became depressed and addicted to fast food. I gained a lot more weight...

it wasn't until I decided I need to take care of myself as a human being that I started to turn things a round. I've come a long way, but I feel like I have a lot to learn still about connecting my mind to my body.

I'm on a weight loss journey. ...

Hey Gavin! :) Thank you for the SparkGoodie! So it's funny that you chose the "new jeans" because just this last weekend I decided to go through my closet and give away all my clothes that don't fit anymore. Well needless to say, I ended up with only 1 pair of jeans left hanging in my closet! I was thinking "boy I really need some more jeans" and well now you've given me a virtual pair...not 'exactly' what I had in mind but it works! lol So thank you! How is everything going with you? Are you still pondering the Personal Training thing?? Hope all is well!!

Hey Gavin! Yeah I agree, it does seem like the first 50 pounds or so are the hardest! I'm kind of in a groove now....it almost feels like I'm on autopilot sometimes, which is nice because it means I'm not thinking about things as much, just simply doing them. So how is Vegas treating you? I see you're only 20 pounds away from your goal....how crazy is that?? lol I hope you realize just how much of an inspiration you've been to me and I'm sure so many other people in your life! Hope everything is going well with you, you look GREAT!! emoticon

I bet you are happy to be in Vegas rather than in MN where we have a ton of snow and more on the way. Go luck out West! Merry Christmas!

Hey Gavin! That's awesome that you moved to Vegas, how is the poker playing going? My sister had thought about trying to play poker for a living...she's a lot better at the bluffing thing than I am! I know a girl who lost a lot of weight and did the same thing getting a personal training degree. She absolutely loves it and says it's one of the most rewarding things she's ever done in her life so I say go for it!! Well I hope the Poker playing is going well for you...good luck!!! emoticon

Hey Gavin!! Long time no see...or 'talk' I guess I should say! lol WOW You look.....AMAZING!!! How have you been lately? It looks like you've really stuck with a healthy way of living. I'm still searching for my inspiration, but slowly but surely I'm getting there! I hope all is well with you and would love to hear from you!! Take care! emoticon
