me at my bachelorette party (169 pounds!)
Me and my husband Aaron
me and my amazing husband
I'm Jess, I'm 34 and I live with my amazing husband and son who are incredibly supportive. I got married in April of 2008. I need to get motivated to lose some of this weight and hoping to get my life on track and get healthier for myself and for our future.
I began Sparkpeople at 194 pounds, I lost almost 30 pounds for my wedding in April 2008, however I gained a few pounds back after the wedding. In March 2009, my husband lost his job and I gained back pretty much everything and then got pregnant with our son and lost some weight after pregnancy and now back up to 227 pounds. I need help to do it right this time and lose the weight and some motivation to do it... so I'm going to work on eating healthier and exercising more. My mid-weight loss goal is to weigh 160 pounds. Eventually I would like to be somewhere between 120 and 130 pounds which is ideal for my height (5'2"). Just going to take some time, but I'll reach it.
"We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance. " -Harrison Ford
I'd like to get back to a healthy weight for my height, since I'm short (5'2").
I'm trying to be more careful about what I eat and how much, also incorporating more exercise into my week. I began doing Pilates and some kickboxing as a way to exercise more and I enjoy it so far.
I live in Attleboro, MA but grew up in Brockton, MA
I love reading, my favorite books are by John Grisham and Nicholas Sparks. Movies are a hobby, especially 80's movies, like The Breakfast Club which is my favorite.

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me.
