Let me try this again...

Hi there!!

Here is a little about me:
My name is Theresa and I am 24. I am the youngest of 4 kids, have 5 nephews and 2 neices (and another niece or nephew on the way in July!), amazing friends, supportive family, and the best HUSBAND I could have ever asked for!

As a young child, I was always overweight. I played sports and stayed active but never lost the weight. I was teased, not bad, but it still sticks with me today and I would never wish that upon anyone!! ...
Hi there!!

Here is a little about me:
My name is Theresa and I am 24. I am the youngest of 4 kids, have 5 nephews and 2 neices (and another niece or nephew on the way in July!), amazing friends, supportive family, and the best HUSBAND I could have ever asked for!

As a young child, I was always overweight. I played sports and stayed active but never lost the weight. I was teased, not bad, but it still sticks with me today and I would never wish that upon anyone!! It hurts. I am an emotional eater, social eater, and just plain like to eat. I am working hard to change those first two, and change what I like to eat on the last one!

I am a licensed cosmotologist, work full-time, and will help anyone out who needs it!

I LOVE TO:
laugh uncontrollably, SINGing is my favorite pass time, workout, walk, read, write down my thoughts, talk, text, drive (not all at once!), make people smile, help people see their true beauty-inside and out!, learn new things, ride horses, take pictures, swim, dance, style hair.

I DO NOT CARE FOR (HATE is such a strong word):
liars, cheaters, people who are negative ALL the time!, paying so much for school books, not being able to see my friends as much as I want, people who want "quick" fixes (I used to be that person, but not anymore!).

I LOVE:
my friends, family, and my husband, Chris ;)

My 2010 journey:
I have always been heavier-set. My highest I have ever been has been around 185ish. I started SERIOUSLY using SP on 1.13.10 at a weight of 164lbs. I lost those first 21 lbs just by cutting back here or there, nothing consistent though. I have a goal weight of 145lbs, possibly lower depending how I look/feel. I am pear shaped and I have never been lower than 145lbs so we will just have to wait and see on that one :)
My 2011 journey:
I have been letting my eating habits slack due to stress but I do not want to go back to where I was so I am putting my foot down. I am getting MARRIED in May and even though I will not be to my goal weight by then, I can be healthier and feel better about myself.

MY 2012 JOURNEY:
"if you are tired of starting over, stop giving up"
I am done. I am done being overweight (almost obese according to the scale!). I am done being tired. I am done being unhappy with what I see in the mirror. I will do this. I promise myself.


My sisters, mom, and I all enjoy running/walking 5ks and half marathons (my 2 sisters run them and my mom and I walk/run them). . I am not much of a runner right now but one day at a time, I will change that! Also, we enjoy traveling to do half marathons in different states! So far, I have only done them in Missouri (where I live) Mississippi, and have one in Chicago, IL planned for June.
I did 2 in 2009.
My sisters, my mom, and I signed up for our first marathon! It is Oct 23, 2011 in STL, MO. Run/Walk is the plan!! --Accomplished!

If you read all of that and make it this far, I hope you remember this, if nothing else, SMILE! A smile is the simpliest thing someone can do, and you never know who you are helping with that one smile! Plus, it takes more muscles to frown than to smile! :)

Have a great day!

that's so exciting! i was re-reading your "about me" section on your page and also love traveling for races! i've ran in kentucky, tennessee, missouri (of course), illinois, and south carolina...need to add more to that list!

good luck on the training and i hope it's not terribly hot on race day. stay hydrated! :)

thanks about the new name! my husband's username for everything before i met him (and still today) is wenzthis, so i decided to be wenzthat, haha.

things are going good. i've been doing much better with food but have been crazy busy with work and school and not making the time to exercise. i have been exercising about 2 days a week, but i need to step it up to at least 4 days. i'm thinking about doing the 30 day shred again...
