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 Graphic/Web 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 was on here a couple years ago and was so close to hitting my goal weight. After a few surgeries I have gained most of that weight back. I haven't felt really healthy in a long time and I want to change that. I want to reach that point where I am healthy and happy with the way I look.

I know I'm a beautiful woman I want my body to reflect that. It is time for me to truly love myself again!

    Hello Jessica. I thought I’d share a personal observation that seemed to have been a popular one. I hope you don’t mind if I share it again:

    Every fat cell acquired through life is accompanied with either a good or bad memory. No wonder losing weight is such an emotional journey!

    DON'T GIVE UP!!

    Howdy Jessica! If we can’t do 1 sit-up, why set a goal to do 100 sit ups by the end of the week? Although we may have the desire to set miraculous goals, temper them with reality and tone the goals down into achievable goals…then we will reap a feeling of success instead of failure and frustration. Another new day is here! You're doing great! Keep up the hard work and sacrifices!

    It's super Saturday, Jessica! If you've ever been late for work. Late for a date. Felt too old to change. Missed the boat/train. Fell off the wagon. Took a sabbatical. Derailed while on vacation. Bad stuff happened in life. It’s okay to be late. All LATE stands for is:

    L-augh
    A-t
    T-he
    E-xperience

    Then get back on track. There’s years worth of empty days ahead to fill with good positive choices!
