Strong Enough...You Bet I Am!!!!!

My name is Tracey Swarthout and I am 35 years old. I started my journey weighing 230 lbs. on November 30, 2009. I have been able to control everything in my life except my weight. Very simply it was not a priority. I always wanted to be "skinny" but did not have the desire to work for it. Why should I have to work for it when my four sisters were skinny and didn't work for it? I have always been the "biggest" female in my family no matter how skinny I was. They were always thinner. I ...
My name is Tracey Swarthout and I am 35 years old. I started my journey weighing 230 lbs. on November 30, 2009. I have been able to control everything in my life except my weight. Very simply it was not a priority. I always wanted to be "skinny" but did not have the desire to work for it. Why should I have to work for it when my four sisters were skinny and didn't work for it? I have always been the "biggest" female in my family no matter how skinny I was. They were always thinner. I have been lucky enough to have a build where everything was in equal proportion so I could "get away" with more weight. But I want to be skinny. I want to look good in a bathing suit. I don't ever want to hear "you are the girl with a pretty face" again. I want it all. I am going to be the happy, healthy, skinny person that I know I was mean't to be:)

I have learned so much since joining Sparks...

I am stronger then I thought I was...

I am worth the effort....

I can achieve my weight lose goals...

I can run....

I can eat healthy and enjoy it.....

I can inspire others....

I can control what I put in my mouth....

I have also learned what I am DONE with....

I am DONE thinking I can't...
I am DONE fearing myself...
I am DONE settling.....
I am DONE thinking I can't be sexy...
I am DONE waiting for someone else to do the work for me...
I am DONE feel self-conscience about my weight...
I am DONE sitting on the sidelines....
I am DONE watching life pass me by....

I AM DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL!!!!!!!

AND I WILL SUCCEED!!!!!

It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!
