Hello, my name is Tiffany Spangler. I am 20 years old and one-hundred pounds overweight. Some people say I don't look like one-hundred pounds overweight. I should take that as a complement, however, I don't feel as great as I should.

I have been struggling with weight ever since I could imagine. In the third grade, most children are not supposed to weigh 100 pounds quite yet, but I did.

Growing up, I tried everything to be active but unfortunately, my parents couldn't afford it. At first I was a ballerina, and then my mom dropped me out of that class because she said that she couldn't continue to pay for it. And then it was gymnastics. I did so well there, learned a lot and became very active until one day I got hurt. So as an excuse, my mom discontiued that, as well.

For the longest time, I didn't play any sports, until high school. I took the opportunity to play football. (Yes, football, with the boys.) My mom said I could do it as long as I paid for it, and I did. I went through an entire season and was ready for another one until I got caught up with crystal meth. I started to get addicted and I felt there was no way out of the addiction, except to change schools.

When I changed schools, I tried to be able to play football at the other school I was transferred to. The coach made the excuse, on my senior year, that I had to do a whole bunch of stuff before I joined their football team. In order to accomplish what he wanted of me, the time would take until the season was over, but I knew that is not the reason why he didn't want me on the football team. It was because I was a woman, no doubt about it. Tons of women try to play this sport every year and they get shot down by coaches that I encountered.

So there is the end of my sporting career, I couldn't try out for anything else.... and then back to the drugs I go. I was losing weight the unhealthy way and deteriorating my body even worse and living out in the streets.

Finally, one day I snapped and changed. I quit the drugs and regained my life back along with over 100 pounds. I became lazy, tired, moving from job to job because I was unhappy all the time and wasn't doing much of anything.

And again, I snapped and changed one more time, I started sparkpeople to change my life around and lose weight the healthy way. I am happy once again, I feel great, and I am a lot more active than I once was. I can't wait to reach my goal and when I do, I am going on a shopping binge at Macy's. All new clothes baby!!!

    Hey! I'm looking for a work out buddy, and was wondering if maybe you'd be interested. Either just for walking or you could go to Planet Fitness with me in Rohnert Park. I can bring one person for free everyday, so it wouldn't cost you anything.

    Well, if you're interested in getting to know eachother let me know!
    Either way, gooood luck!
