PERSISTENTTIM is a SparkPeople Motivator!
Hello, my name is Tim. I've been very overweight all my, one of the biggest obstacles has been my tendency to isolate and shy away from family and friends. I have decided to put myself out there, be vulnerable and trust this leap of faith will lead something great. At this point I have not left my home for more than 2 years and not worked in 7 years. I weighed about 300 lbs when I was 18, kept gaining through my 20's until hitting 600 lbs at 30, now at almost 40 I am getting healthy. My highest weight was in 2012-2013 when I weighed between 700-750lbs, I lost some weight and as of summer 2016 weigh about 450lbs. God bless!

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
The first one said, "Oh my it's getting late".
The second one said, "There are witches in the air".
The third one said, "But I don't care".
The fourth one said, "I'm ready for some fun!"
The fifth one said, "Let's run and run and run"
"Wooooooo" went the wind,And out went the lights.
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
"""""Enjoy this day with all your might"""""
Remove the pumpkin cover, shouting out, "Oh me or my!!"
And out jumps lots of
Guess what???~~They're from me!!!!!!

~~~~****~~~~ ""I CHOOSE"" ~~~~****~~~~
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not to compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice,
Not the random opinion of others.
~~~I will choose to be me~~
~~~~****~~~~ ""What will you choose today?"" ~~~~****~~~~

â€śFor what itâ€™s worth: itâ€™s never too late or, in my case,
too early to be whoever you want to be.
Thereâ€™s no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it.
And I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life youâ€™re proud of. If you find that youâ€™re not,
I hope you have the courage to start all over again.â€ť
