My girls...the most important people in my life!





This is me, along with my very best friend...my sister, Krystal.

A Long Way To Happy..

To say that I'm not happy is actually inaccurate. I'm proud of the fact that I'm making changes in my life, even though I'm already 30 years old and probably five years behind in the 'change' department. But I'm going to school, I'm working at becoming a writer, and a musician. I have already begun my quest to reach a healthy weight. I peaked at 315 lbs. -- I started working towards losing weight, and I'm now fluctuating between 283 and 285.

I so want to be serious about my weight ...

I so want to be serious about my weight loss goals, about as much as I want to be serious about fulfilling dreams that I've had since childhood. I'm hoping SparkPeople can help me begin to find the drive to make the rest of my life something I can be proud of.

Hi, would you believe I had not seen your commento on my blog. I didn't even remember that I had a blog. Someone else added to it and I got the message, while there I saw yours. I hope you are still around Spark. I am here but have not done anything about weight loss, but I think it has kept me from gaining. I hope you are well and still trying to lose. Hugs, Betty emoticon

I just came across your blog and I could totally identify with it. I sometimes make very detailed lists of things that I need to do just so I can avoid doing them! Good luck with all of your goals, from one procrastinator to another,
Stephanie

Welcome to Spark, I'm sure you will do well here. Just take advantage of all that Spark gives us. I would suggest that you look into joining a team. It is so nice to chat with others who are going through the same things as you. We support, encourage and some times vent when we have goofed. The team is always there to help. Good wishes on your new journey to a better body weight. Your friend here at Spark. I belong to Achieving success with determination, a great group of people. I'm sure you will find one you'll feel at home in. Betty
