My Fiance and I (293 - 3/07)
One reason I want to be healthy, to see my Godchild Brittaney become a beautiful woman!!!
Second reason to get healthy, to play sports with my Niece Jada!!!
Hi, My name is Marci. I'm from Massachusetts. I have been overweight all my life. Therefore I have dieted all my life. I was attending WW meetings at the age of 9. Although I'm genuinly a happy person, I do believe my weight has held me back on many areas of my life. I look at people who claim to be a BBW and proud of it and they are comfortable there and I often ask myself "Why can't you be happy with the way you are?" I recently stopped asking that question because I found the answer. I'm a women, yes, I'm beautiful, yes, but....I'm not meant to be big. Nothing about being overweight, in my personal opinion, is a positive thing. I am meant to be active, healthy, and happy. I want to go for a run someday, for now I walk. I'm getting married in September 2008 and want to be healthy and comfortable. I want the skinnier, healthy Marci to be let out of this fat suit. I need help, but this is my start place.
Overall Goals: Eat healthy, Be active, Lose 150 pounds!!!
Current Goals: Only weigh myself once a week, Eat Healthy, Walk 30 minutes a day, 6 times a week, Use SparkPeople daily!!!
Planning meals, Giving myself as much time for me as I give for others, Setting the alarm for 5:30am and walking so I can't find an excuse not to do it later!!!
My name is Marci, I am from Massachusetts, I'm 36, engaged and have no children, I have 2 nieces that I 100% completely adore, they keep me young and I want to grow old with them.
I love to laugh, I like to read, my favorite thing to read right now is the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonovitch, I try not to watch too much TV, but my favorite show is 24
Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
Oh my I don't know if you remember me or not. You wrote me a long time ago. I moved to Washington State after living in Hanson, MA most of my life. Which is not too far from where you live. I have family in Hanson, East Bridgewater, Halifax, and Kingson. I go and visit once a year because my Mom is getting older and I need the family fix every so often.
I have a lot to loose and I am a lot older than you are. The way I am looking at my goal is to take a smaller amount to loose and put it on my scale and when I loose something it seems like I am going somewhere.
I read an article that most people who are way overweight don't plan on loosing it all. I have been working on this for years. Just a suggestion for you. You are a beautiful person. Make better choices and focus every day and maybe we will both make this.
I will be glad when these holidays are over. I feel like it is punishment for me.

Hi Marci! Just wanted to pop on by and say hello...it's been awhile since we corresponded via email. I just wanted to give you a hug (an online hug I suppose) and just encourage you to keep on going and to not give up. Congrats on the 2 pounds so far! Isn't it awesome to think that 2 pounds of you is gone? I think it's incredible! Keep focusing on your goal and you will get there.

Stay strong Marci. I read your blog entry for today and those gloomy days are bound to pop up every now and then. Stick through them and you'll be so much happier with yourself for not giving in.
A lot of what you said on your SparkPage are the same feelings I had--so you're definitely not alone.
I'll always be out here in SparkPeople cheering you on. Like I said in my post, let me know if I can help you.
