Hello Fellow Sparkers!

My name is Jessica. I'm an interactive designer in the beautiful city of Birmingham, Ala. I've got an amazing daughter named Natasha and I am married to my best friend, Dan.

I'm a woman who has spent a lot of time taking care of everyone else but myself! I have a tendency to worry about everyone else's needs but my own, but not anymore!

I'm not new to the weight loss journey, about 6 years ago I was so extremely close to hitting my goal weight but unfortunately had 5 hand surgeries spanning over a 1 year time period and gained most of that weight back.

I'm now on my weight loss journey through a program called Naturally Slim, which was sponsored through work, and since the beginning of April, I've been rocking it hard! I'm feeling so inspired and my results are really showing. I've lost over 106 pounds, since April and over 65 inches! I went from a 22 Plus Size pant to a size 6/8. The biggest change though is my energy and confidence!

I have now reached that point where I'm feeling healthy inside and out!

"Know the true value of time; snatch, seize and enjoy every moment of it. No idleness... never put off till tomorrow what you can do today." -Lord Chesterfield
