It's hard to believe that I'm almost to my goal. Including weight lost before joining SP, I'm over 90 lbs. down, 25 more lbs. to go! Not sure when I'll get there...but I will get there! I will probably never have washboard abs and I will always bear the consequences of being over 100 lbs. overweight, but I'm doing it and I'm not looking back! 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.

    Happy Valentines Day Marisa and God Bless, hope your day is blessed!

    And you enjoy the following Valentine Poem! emoticon

    You Are Often In My Thoughts

    Love is a command
    That Christians are called to do;
    Our Lord says "Love your God,
    And love your neighbor, too."

    Some people are easy to love;
    They are human rays of sun;
    They light up every life,
    And encourage everyone.

    You are in that group,
    So I sincerely want to say:
    You are often in my thoughts;
    Happy Valentine's Day!
