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 added you as a friend & support buddy. Although I'm much older than you, I can relate to being the chubby girl. Good for you on deciding to make a change in your life while you're young. You can do it!

LLREED, Thanks for the info and welcome to the board. I feel so bad I read this morning that the friend of the women that started the board has passed from cancer. Really makes you stop and think how quickly our lives can be taken from us. I hate cancer!

SNOW, thanks for the add. I also think we have simalar goals. I used to love to jog in high school when we would warm up for sports or had to run the mile. That is one of my goals is to run again.
