I started this for my kids, but I'm finishing it for me

My name is Holly and I'm 39 years old. I was a chubby child, a fat teenager, and an obese adult. I began my journey at the age of 34 weighing 307 pounds. Only being 5 feet tall, I was about 160 pounds overweight, and going to be in serious trouble if I didn't change my life.

I'm a social worker for a hospital, I've been married for 14 years, and have 2 awesome kids who are 12 and 10. I decided that I wasn't going to be the fat mom anymore so I joined Spark in June 2010, and started a journey to a healthier lifestyle not only for me, but for my family as well.

My weight loss has slowed dramatically, and a lot of that has been my own doing. I've changed the date to reach my goal to... whenever I get there. I'm too happy living my life to say no to a piece of cake, or a slice of pizza.

*10/20/2014* And NOT saying "NO" has resulted in a 40 pound weight gain... I'm still fighting and I WILL reach my goal!

Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It's the courage to continue that counts...
