Hello to all, my name is Nicole. I am a fun loving girl from Arizona. I am here to get support from fellow spark friends while going through this amazing weight loss journey ahead of me.
Ahhhhh where to begin. I was not always fat. For most of my childhood I was trim. I started really packing on the pounds my eight grade year, after my parents divorce. I did not care what people thought about my weight gain, because I accepted it. I used food as comfort, and it helped until my weight spun out of control. My senior year of high school I was the largest I had ever been. I was no longer so accepting of my weight gain because I felt like I was a mess. I wanted some kind of attention from my parents. I never talked to my dad, and when I did it was always about my weight. I lived with my mom, but she was so busy with boyfriends. So in 2000 I decided to drastically drop a ton a weight by starving my self, and abusing diet pills. I lost 90 pounds in four months. I lost my gallbladder because of it. I had to seek help for my out of control weight issues. The end result was never how I imagined it would be. I got attention alright, but it was not the attention I thought i would of got. My mom and dad, nor my sister were not praising- but punishing me for what I had done. I had to take a hard look at my life and really deal with some underlining issues I had. I used food as a way to control that, because I felt like that was something I could control.
I started eating and working out. I spend more time with my family minus my dad, well I call him Jack.
I felt great for the first time in a long time. I felt like I really had my life under control.
Then in 2002 my mother took her own life, and I went off the deep end. I slowly began to let the weight creep back up on me about two years after she died. I was trying to find love in all the wrong places because I just so badly wanted to find someone to take away all the pain. I did not find him, so I turned to food.
Food wont bring her back, I would tell myself, but I was just so sad. I had gone from 125 to 214 in the matter of a few short years. When I thought there was no hope left with my battle. I met someone!
I met my boyfriend in 2006. He accepts me for who I am, and loves me not matter what. I believe that he is my angel! He is on the heaver side so we are doing this together. I want to promote a positive lifestyle. Eating right, exercising, and love :)
But.......With love comes those happy pounds! I had managed to balloon up to 258 pounds. We started to recently discuss marriage, and the possibility of one day having kids. I decided that I can raise a family want to change for me!
I need the love and support from fellow friends to help me along this journey.
My best friend in the whole wide world Lindsay is a big timer on here :) She is famous for the goals she has met. She is my inspiration to take on this total life change!
WHO'S WITH ME!!!!

    Hi Nicole!

    I just wanted to send you a note to tell you that I'm sorry I haven't "talked" to you much lately! I hope you've been as busy as I have and don't feel like I've dropped off the face of the earth! If I don't get a chance to do more than my SparkPoints until after Christmas, please know that you're in my thoughts and prayers!
    Your friend, Lori emoticon
