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!
