My name is Ashley and I am 23 years old. I am a daughter, sister, friend, and girlfriend. I go to college full time for early education. I love working with young children and I truly hope that I succeed at teaching. It took me a very long time to figure out what I really wanted to do with my life and in all honesty I do not know if teaching is really what I am meant to do. I have been in a relationship for about 5 years and he is the love of my life.
I had joined sparkpeople a few years ago and I never did anything else. I thought at the time that I was motivated to loose the weight but I never did anything else different and I ended up gaining more weight since then...around 30 more pounds. I am hoping with a little encouragement I can do it this time!
This year has been a hard year. Within the last 6 months I have gained some weight, my boyfriends grandpa whom I was very close to passed away, and my father passed away on Aug 3, 2010, and my birthday was the next day. I sometimes feel like I am making excuses for myself and I am sure I do, but I just don't feel like life is going my way right now.
But this is a new week and I am trying to have a new outlook on life!
