Hello my fellow Sparkers :) My name is Jessica and I am a woman who has spent a lot of time taking care of everyone else but me!

I have tendency to worry about everyone's need but my own, but not anymore!

I am a visual designer in the beautiful city of Birmingham, Ala. I have an amazing daughter named Natasha and I am married to my best friend, Dan.

I'm not new to SparkPeople, I have been around since Spring 2010. I was so extremely close to hitting my goal weight but unfortunately had to have 5 hand surgeries spanning over a 1 year time period and gained most of that weight back.

I am now on my weight loss journey again and since the beginning of April I have been rocking it hard! I am feeling so inspired and my results are really showing. I have already gone down two pant sizes!

I want to reach that point where I am feeling healthy inside and out!
