I'm tired of being the fat girl. I have to keep trying. If I give up, I’m giving up on life. I’m tired of buying over priced plus sized clothes that aren't cute. Tired of wearing a bathing suit that looks like a dress. Tired of my knees hurting. Tired of looking at rolls on my back in the mirror. I want to know what it feels like to go shopping and find my size no matter what store I'm in. I want to know what it feels like to wear a regular swim suit maybe even a two piece. I want to be able to look in the mirror and not see rolls on my back and stomach. I want to be able to run and not feel the fat moving as if it has a life of its own. I want to have energy to keep up with my two boys. Most Importantly I want to be HEALTHY.

Nutrition is definitely my downfall. I can exercise for days. I get into a good groove once I am at the gym. As far as eating, there needs to be some major changes. Better choices and portion control. Moderation! My sweet tooth is going to be the death of me. Any tips in this area will be greatly appreciated along with much needed support.

***Thanks to Lindokas for trying her best to keep me in line and inviting me to spark!!

Personal Information:

My name is Rhenda. I was born in St Thomas USVI. Raised in Rhode Island aka Little Rhody, lol, the smallest state. [Don't really know how my mom skipped over all the warmer states and ended up there!] I am 28 years young and the mother of two boys 9 and 5. They are my life and the a major part of my journey here on Spark. I have a BS in Criminal Justice and a MBA in Economic Crime and Fraud Management. Still trying to find my niche in careerland. I really want to do forensics of some sort or become an investigator. I now live in sunny Florida. I miss all my friends in RI. I love to listen to loud music in my car or out at the club occasionally. Love to laugh and have a good time. I like to read and watch TV. [Thank God for my DVR]
