Jenjafer needs a lift

Hello! My name is Jen & I am in need of motivation. I have struggled the majority of my life with weight issues. In 2004, I began working with a personal trainer & lost over 50 pounds. I finally reached my fitness goals, and kept my weight stable for a year. In 2005, I found out I was pregnant with my daughter. I have not been able to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I will get within 15 pounds and have set backs...I am currently over 60 pounds away from my goal weight, so I am looking for ...

I will get within 15 pounds and have set backs...I am currently over 60 pounds away from my goal weight, so I am looking for motivation! I work at a high school that is basically a "last stop before jail"...very stressful & sad. Some people drink or do drugs to cope, I eat and it is something I need to change...I want exercise & clean eating to become my release instead of food...I want to get back to the point where I ate for energy to do my workouts...I want to learn to shop the perimeter of the grocery store again, and love to feel the burn....hopefully Sparkpeople can help me do this....I love the motivational pages of REAL people, who have had to overcome the same obstacles that I am embarking on....

~ Mark Twain

"The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours it is an amazing journey and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.~~Bob Moawad

Hi Jen and thanks for stopping by my sparkpage. You and your daughter are beautiful and clearly she is motivation enough for you to want to be as healthy as possible. Remember, you should try to focus on the things you HAVE control over and try to let the rest go. That's the tough part and working in a school environment is tough. I have been in a school system for 15 years now in a variety of settings and as of a year ago, made the move to the central office which is far different than a building secretary. Anyway, you can do this. Just take it slow and steady and keep your 'focus' on what truly matters. My journey hasn't been easy but it has been worth it.

I added you as a friend. Hope you don't mind. Take care and enjoy your day!!

Hi Jen!

Thanks for adding me as a friend and commenting on my blog. I, too, added you as a friend after I read your bio. I used to work in a school just like that and the emotional toll it takes on a person is amazing. The school had to close due to lack of funds, however, I miss it everyday and wish I could go back.

Your daughter is so darn beautiful, you are a lucky lady. I think we are a lot alike and I hope to learn more about you and to help motivate you if possible. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon!

Hugs,

Kristin

Thank you so much for your kind words on my blog! It's been five weeks since I wrote that entry, and I'm still on track and seeing results. Your daughter is beautiful and looks so contented and loved--you must be so proud. All the best with your goals here at SP!
