I choose to love my body, just the way it is, right now--battle scars and all.

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. Will resume battle after we have this little one!

Personal Information:
In January of 2012, I got to a point that I could no longer neglect my health. I was at my heaviest weight ever and was heading for a milestone that I never thought that I would get to--300 lbs.

I went to the Internet, searched for a 5K and signed up. In 2012, I did 3 - 5K's and 1 - 10K and lost 45 lbs.

After my last race, I started back with my old habits and gained about 15 lbs. back.

I've now started SparkPeople and have short, medium and long term goals to help keep me motivated.

"Weight loss is like driving: If you ever veer off the road, just make a u-turn and head back in the right direction."

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!
