Hello, I have been on an off on Sparkpeople since 2012. I have been on and off trying to lose weight since pretty much forever (age 12 or so). I am 34 now, and recently married. I am working to get back on a plan that I can stick to so that I can finally be healthy.

Currently honeymoon and reception planning and saving up to buy a house. Exciting times!
