A new and better life!

I started life out as this pudgy little girl. Adults loved my long eyelashes and my chubby cheeks. Kids on the other hand can be mean in grade school and I was once called a "steamroller". Middle school and high school no boys wanted to go out with the fat girl. I had lots of girl friends that would like to tell me that I wasn't fat, just big boned. My mom said I was solid. I played softball and volley ball in high school. I could run a mile in 8-9 min. Now it takes me 30 min to walk it. I ...
I started life out as this pudgy little girl. Adults loved my long eyelashes and my chubby cheeks. Kids on the other hand can be mean in grade school and I was once called a "steamroller". Middle school and high school no boys wanted to go out with the fat girl. I had lots of girl friends that would like to tell me that I wasn't fat, just big boned. My mom said I was solid. I played softball and volley ball in high school. I could run a mile in 8-9 min. Now it takes me 30 min to walk it. I always new as a teen that I could be thinner but I was comfortable with myself most of the time. I still felt like I could look in the mirror and say I like what I seen.

I started having children at the early age of 18. I have four now and with every baby I stacked on another 20 to 30 pounds. In between each one I would try to lose the weight gained, only to fail or just give up. When I was about 30 I found out that I had a thyroid problem. The kind that makes your metabolism slow. Medicine was the answer to all my problems right? Take a pill, metabolism goes faster, Jen loses weight. Well that was too good to be true. So here I am back at it again. I love my children to death but honestly, I am DONE having children. I am DONE being the fat girl they people say has a pretty FACE. I want a pretty body too. I am not asking to be perfect and I know I will never be "skinny", but I do know I want to be a healthier me. I want to move with out hurting or grunting or getting tired. It is time that I start looking out for me and I want to teach my kids that eating good and being active isn't just for fat people.

I have seriously been getting online and blogging and reading and tracking for a few months now. I have lost 18 pounds and I believe this is working. I can see it on the scale. Some people do not believe in the scale but I can see it there and I need to see it. I am so happy to have found this web site and the people here are awesome! I tell everyone about Spark People. I tell them to check it out. I tell them its FREE! I tell them that it is helping me and can help them too.

It has taken me 16 years to put on the weight and I know this weight loss is not going to happen over night. Day by Day, sometimes hour by hour I am working towards my goal and changing my life for good.

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane
