Finding My Mirror

Hello. My name is Simone. I am searching for the mirror that reflects my true self. My heaviest weight was 338lbs, when I met my husband of nearly 10 years. In 2004, I weighed 320. Feb 2008, I was featured in Essence magazine after losing 130lbs. I was in the best place of my life. I loved everything about myself. And boy did I like my booty in a pair of jeans. Then something happened. I am not sure what happened, but the aftermath of it was a 50lb weight gain.

Today, May ...

Then something happened. I am not sure what happened, but the aftermath of it was a 50lb weight gain.

Today, May 1, 2009, I am 246lbs. I am passionate, purpose-driven and proud of the person I am. I am kind. I am loving. I am beautiful. I am generous. I am a Christian. I am loved. I am a great friend. I am an awesome mother and an even better wife. Yep, I am fat, but I am so much more. I will no longer wait until I reach my goal to live. I am alive and living it up! I encourage you to do the same

Writing is my passion, my purpose and I hope to profit from it with the completion of my first book, so that I can take care of my husband for a change. He has done an excellent job of taking care of me.

I currently live in Stuttgart, Germany with my husband and 2 boys. I am originally from Florida and call Tampa home.

Go Bucs!

These are my goals. No time limits, just pressing forward.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to live long enough to see my boys marry and have children of their own. My mini goal is to lose 79 more pounds and be the size I was in the 10th grade.

I live. I move and I have my being in Christ Jesus.

My Program:
I am committed to eating 1200-1500 calories per day. I try my best to stay as close to 1400 as I can. I drink 3-1.5liter bottles of water each day. I am comitted work moving my body EVERY day for an hour. I working on strength training 3 times per week. And I write it all down: my feelings, my struggles, my successes and my failures. I find some part of my body that I like right now and I praise it. For instance, I love the shape of my body. I have and hour glass figure that I have to whittle back down to just an hour instead of a week! I love my eyes and my lips-beautiful. And I have the skinniest hands and lower leg imaginable. I can''t wait until the rest of me catches up. LOL

Personal Information:
My name is Simone. I live in Stuttgart Germany, but Tampa, Florida is home.

Other Information:
One of my favorite quotes: You get what you expect, so ask more of yourself and others-Simone



My favorite movie is Pretty Woman. All some of us need is exposure to a higher standard and we will latch on and make it.



My favorite book is The Holy Bible. In it is the road map to successful relationships, communities and ultimately lives.



I enjoy writing. I aspire to complete my first book soon. Pray for my success.
