2012: NO MORE EXCUSES!

I'm Jennifer and I am 22 years old. I graduated with a Bachelors degree in May 2011 and am currently in school pursuing a graduate degree in Counseling. I'm from North Carolina and I LOVE the East Coast! I love country music, UNC basketball, my car, my FIANCE', and the beach! I'm addicted to TV, the internet, and polka dots!

I'm Jennifer and I am 22 years old. I graduated with a Bachelors degree in May 2011 and am currently in school pursuing a graduate degree in Counseling. I'm from North Carolina and I LOVE the East Coast! I love country music, UNC basketball, my car, my FIANCE', and the beach! I'm addicted to TV, the internet, and polka dots!

I generally have low self-esteem and have struggled emotionally my whole life. I've been overweight my entire life. While my parents worked full time, my grandmother watched us kids in the afternoons after school. My grandmother has a big heart, a big appetite, and a big knack for cooking huge meals! She would always cook us huge meals after school... something we never refused. We were always taught to "clean our plates" and take food when offered. I was a very active and athletic child, playing soccer, dancing, etc. But somewhere along the way, I became a couch potato, with a huge sweet tooth and an addict to fried foods and breads, pastas, etc. I in no way blame my grandmother or my parents and family for my weight that I am today, but I have never learned to stop eating when you are full... I was only taught to clean my plate..

I have done SparkPeople once before but I gave up too easily. I have been on many diets, Weight Watchers, Scarsdale, etc. and have given up. I am looking for the right support and knowledge to continue to lose weight and be healthy. In total, I have between 100 and 120 pounds to lose. I have no set goal in mind, but I would like to be down 100 pounds in one year or so. I know I can do it with the right motivation and encouragement!

I have a great family, great friends, a wonderful fiance', and looking forward to meeting many more Spark friends who I can share in my journey to lose weight, look great and adopt a healthier and happier lifestyle!

I look forward to talking to everyone !! Happy Sparking!!

I am a DONE GIRL!
I am DONE with:
-Being embarrassed of how I look
-My legs rubbing together when I walk
-Feeling inadequate
-Feeling lonely and depressed
-Negative thoughts and attitudes
-Feeling like people are staring at how huge I am.
-Trying to be perfect at everything.
-Being the fat girl!!!!

Hey hun! How are you doing? I have been insanely busy and my schedule at work keeps changing! I have had some serious trouble trying to fit everything in...especially since I like my sleep! lol I have not had time to get on here at all and also have been struggling to get back in the workout groove! However, I am working on getting my eating right and also have quit smoking which is a huge deal! Anyway, slowly but surely I will get back into everything! I have a new man so he takes up a lot of my time...in a good way! Haha, I have to get ready to go to work! Have a great day!
