UPDATE: 8/2014:

So I started on this site over 3 years ago, I managed to lose about 40 lbs in about 5 months, I did this while unemployed, so i had alot of time to devote to it, I got a job in 3/2011 and since then have struggled to start my journey to weightloss again, needless to say ive gained all the weight back and then some, so I am now at my heaviest and having PCOS along with it, its been really hard in all aspects of my life. I feel like I have this shell that isnt me on, and I just want to take it off and show the world the REAL me, the me that is trapped in this shell of a body.

I have so many reasons to lose the weight. Health is a top one, but my true motivation is to gain myself back, the vibrant, vivacious, fun ME back, and that is directly affected by my weight.

My weight has finally had consequences to my health, 3 years ago I was "healhty" on paper as far as my labs were concerned, no where near Diabetic. the only thing I had was PCOS, and the symptoms at that point were not troublesome. Now fast forward 3 years, I have PCOS and its symptoms are out of control.

So somethings got to give, I need to just take it day by day and meal by meal, choice by choice. The most important thing is not to give up on myself, because I am worth it.

Heres to GETTING ME BACK!!!

Hey girl! We seem to have a lot in common. I am a fellow Cyster and trying to lose weight before my 30th birthday (8/30/15)! Congrats on your progress so far. It's only day 4 for me, but I am doing awesome! Would you want to be SparkBuddies and root each other through this?

I just read this poem & felt it too good not to share on this CHRISTmas Eve! God bless!

{This is another version of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas' }


'Twas the night before Jesus came
and all through the house
Not a creature was praying,
Not one in the house.
Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed.
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter.
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to His Father above.
With those who were ready He rose without a sound.
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!


(by Reverend Edward M. Gionest, Sr.)

To those who receive Him, He gives the power to become the sons of God, even to those that believe on his name. Repent and declare with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him up from the dead, you will be saved.
