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.

Well I'm new to Spark and I'm so glad to have found it. I'm a 35 single mom of two & I've struggled with my weight all my life. I was always active and I had father that always told me I was fat when I was a size 8 and then size 10 from age 12-23. I bought in to that body image & did harmful diets, mostly starving myself & crazy exercise regimes. I used to walk in intense heat with a garbage under my clothes for 4hrs everyday. Only drinking a diet tea for breakfast and lunch, and one oven-baked potato w/nothing added and a baked chicken leg with no salt w/that diet tea everyday for 3months. It took me 2 kids later and seeing pictures of myself at that age when I was 30 & wieghing 260 to realize I had a bad body image projected from him that I had finally made true. I'm 35 now & I need a change. My girls are getting older while I'm getting worse. I'm embarassed to go anywhere with them because I just feel so freaking huge and freakish looking. Nothing fits properly, anymore. I don't want to hide out in my house anymore. I don't feel that the person that people see on the outside is the person that I am inside. It's a shocker everytime now, when I see a full view of myself. I do a double-take. So, I'm taking charge. I want my life and my body back and only I can make that happen.
