I am 22 years old and obese. That is hard for me to say because my friends and family keep telling me that I don't look like I weigh 181 pounds. The simple fact is that I do and I feel it.

I have 3 very active little boys who would love to go to the park and play with Mom, but Mom is too tired half the time. The foods that I eat wipe out my energy and I find day to day functions difficult.

I have a very loving husband who has been taking care of my kids for me because I have been too lazy to even change a diaper. I even have to convince myself just to get dressed every morning. I feel out of touch with myself and I am sick of it.

This is not me. I am a fun-loving outgoing person. I enjoy to play in the park with the kids and I love getting up in the morning. Now I am ready to take my life back once and for all. I want to be happy and healthy again and I am on my way. I have lost 18 pounds since I first started this and I have only gained back 1 since I gave up. That is my incentive to get going again.

    Hey there girlfriend! Just dropped in to say hi and see how things are going for you? I just wanted to drop off a little something to get you on your way to a good week.....

    Hey girlfriend! emoticon the weekend is here. I'm in Colorado and we are suppose to get a snow storm Friday and Saturday. I guess it will give me time to make a menu and my goals for next week. How are things going with you? Just wanted to stop in and say hi!

    Remember you control how your journey will end, make it on a good note. Believe in yourself and stay focused! You can do this!

    Have a great weekend!

    Hey GF! Just wanted to drop in and see how you've been doing? Hope you making goals for yourself this month? Here's something to get you thinking....

    "You have to see every potential roadblock as an opportunity and a benefit." (Suze Orman)

    Think of that the next time you think you can't do something because its too hard. Have a great week!

    Hello my Spark friend! Hope your week is going well for you. I saw a quote in a magazine and it struck me as something we can all think about on our journey.

    " I'm so much more than a number on a scale" (Wynonna Judd)

    Remember next time you step on the scale and it doesn't move the way you want it to, or maybe it doesn't move down, but up. Don't put all your focus on the numbers on the scale. There is so much more to your journey then the scale.

    Take care!
