Hi, my name is Linda and I joined sparkpeople on January 31st, 2011 at my highest weight ever, 256 lbs. As of January 5th, 2012, I have lost 100 lbs and my goal is to maintain my weight loss, gain more muscle and be the healthiest and fittest I can be.

~The first step to resisting temptation is wanting to.~

~Self-love is the only weight-loss aid that really works in the long run.~ Jenny Craig, diet guru

~Believe you can and your halfway there~ Theodore Roosevelt

~Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." ~ Mark Twain~

original page wording 1-31-11: I have been overweight for most of my life. I have been on many diets that have helped me lose weight, I just haven't been too great at keeping it off. I am a mom of 2 active kids ages 9 and 7. I have decided that it's ok to make myself a priority and not feel guilty about it. I'm ready to be healthy, lose the weight and be active with my family.

    We ask ourselves,
    Actually, WHO are you NOT to BE? ... We are all meant to Shine...
    And as we let our own light Shine, we unconsciously give other
    people permission to do the same. -Marianne Williamson
