Marisa from Texas

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. ...

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.

"Sweat and tears are healing waters." Abby, Season 8 of Biggest Loser

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

Hi Marisa,

~~~REALITY of FEAR ~~~

You're not scared of the dark,
~ You're scared of what's in it.~
You're not afraid of heights,
~ You're afraid of falling ~
You're not afraid of the people around you,
~ You're just afraid of rejection ~
You're not afraid of love,
~ You're afraid of not being loved back ~
You're not afraid to let go,
~You're just afraid to accept the reality that their gone ~
You're not afraid to try again,
~ You're just afraid of getting hurt for the same reason ~

Do WE all FEAR this in OUR LIFETIME?

~~~HAVE a WONDERFUL WEEKEND~~~
