I'm 24 years old, hairstylist, living a busy lifestyle and trying to find time to eat healthy. At 250lbs (08/2012) I'm the biggest I've ever been.

I've been on diets of all shapes and sizes, and lengths, and popularities.... and even though they work for a while, a lifestyle change is in order.

About a year and a half ago, I thought i was on the right track. Then i enrolled in cosmetology school. Any good hairstylist will tell you That was when they gain the most wait in their life, and i didn't want to believe it!

Well between working full time, going to school, full time, attempting to sleep AND pretend like i still had a social life; cooking and exercise went out the window.... not only did I gain back the 30lbs I lost, i packed on another 20!!!

As I sit here looking through the pictures of my graduation, and what SHOULD be the happiest day of my life so far(only because im not married yet) all I can see is how Round my face is :o\

Dont get me wrong. It WAS a happy day! Biggest accomplishment I've made so far and I'm doing something that I Love. But with this new chapter starting, I need to be happy with my body as well as my goals.

I'm hoping Spark People will help me make the difference.

    Hi Beauty! Thanks for the comment on my blog! I blog everyday and I'm always looking forward to new people :)

    I checked out your profile and we have quite a bit in common. What you said about your graduation pictures is how I feel about my wedding pictures. I have been married for 3 years now and I still have a hard time looking at them because I feel like I look aweful in most of them.

    I added you as a friend because I'm excited to see your progress here on SparkPeople! It looks like you're new to SP, so welcome! :)
