Hello amanda and welcome to the team, you can do this just remember to take it slow and steady and you will do awesome. One day at a time. Break your goal into smaller ones to start with then shoot for more as you get going it makes the first step easier. :)
The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs. But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.
Hi Amanda! Welcome. I think this place will help you. Just to give you a bit of encouragement... my sister has done spark for a few years now...(shes my inspiration and why I'm here). she started out at over 400lbs, and after 2yrs or so, she is under the 200lb mark. I'm am very proud of her and know that I can accomplish my goals too.. after all, I am the older sister.. I should have set the example for her. :).

Hi! I'm Amanda. Im 31 a mom of 2 beautiful children ages 5 and 7, and starting on journey to change my life! My husband is a long haul trucker and is on the road 26 days out of the month so its just the kids and I most of the time. I currently weigh 409lbs and my goal weight is 250lbs. My doctor and I decided that this was a good target weight for me due to my height and frame size. I would love to accomplish this goal in 2.5 years. I am taking Phentermine currently to help me get started. So happy that a friend of mine told me about sparkpeople and hoping to find addtional help, support, and encouragement here from people who are trying to do the same thing I am!
