Me in a Large Shirt!! 100 lbs. down!!!! :)
100 lbs. gotten rid of picture collage!! :)
**Update 8/20/16: Two years ago I was at and below my original goal weight. Then, I was without a maintenance plan and had a few other things happen in my personal life:lost a job so knew we didn't have money to have a baby right then (which was a huge weight loss motivation for me) a few months later my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer (she is well now!), and I was just at a loss of where to go from there. I started concentrating on jobs and making money to catch up on our bills. And stopped focusing on my health. It seems like the past month I've been slowly waking up from a dream. It's not a dream though. I'm back around my starting
weight! :( It's been hitting me even more this past week. So, right now it's about staying out of overwhelm and choosing what small steps I want to take.**
I am 32 years old now. I have been married for 6 years. I'm taking care of me now! I'm worth it! My long term goal is to be healthy enough for pregnancy and to take care of the baby.
I really love all of the support I get from Sparkpeople.com!! :) I may not be on everyday, but I am around! You can always ask me to be your friend or send me a message if you need me!! :)
This isn't about looks, it's about health! And that I want to live for a long time and live a healthy life for me, for Chris, and for our future children!

Happy BELATED Birthday, DONE GIRL
The Aquarian child is some how an "isolated only child" when growing up as she spends a great deal of her time with adults and isn't a "little kid" so she becomes a very smart child, always asking questions and wanting to learn. She makes a good teacher, scientist (Thomas Edison was an Aquarian), or a designer. She gets along well with Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius, Leo and Aries. Her weak area is the ankles and calves of her legs. Aquarius isn't a "fat" sign so being obese isn't good for her as she needs her freedom and space. She does have control over her own life and therefore can be an athlete if she wants. She won't allow anyone to control her.
In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.
Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.
You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.
Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.
