Welcome to my SparkPage! My name is Ashley, and I am 27 years old born and raised in La Porte, Indiana. In January 2010, I decided to pack up my things and move down to Huntsville, Alabama. One of the reasons was to get my health back on track. For so long I have been a human yo-yo with my weight going up and down. I was on a good path while in Indiana until I took on a second job plus school full time. My diet along with exercise habits went out then window.
I joined SparkPeople in February 2010 because I tipped the scale at 323 pounds and had enough. It's been an up and down adventure for me ever since, but I have found great tips, motivation, inspiration, and support that I need to keep on going no matter what! I also enjoy meeting new people and making friends because then I don't feel so alone.
I feel blessed to be where I am right now because I am finally taking care of my body! I have an amazing boyfriend who has been through the same struggles as me. He also makes me feel so beautiful now!
Feel free to add me as a friend, send comments, messages, etc. I love getting to know people! Thanks for coming by!
