Well, here I go again. Since my parents divorce (I was 9) I have always been overweight and took a lot of cr*p for it. Durring my teenage life, I became anorexic (although you wouldn't have known just by looking at me). Since then I have been on several "diets" (including Adkins and Weight watchers) and for some reason, I just felt deprived and eventually "fell off the wagon." I truly hope that this WILL be a life change.

I'm not afraid of not being here to see my children grow up (my family's avg lifespan regarless of sex and weight is 95). What I'm afraid of is being 400 lbs and 95! My reasons for being here are purely for vanity. (Health problems run in my family regarless of weight) Haha :)

Member Since: 3/31/2007

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Besides the obvious losing weight. I want to be more confident in a bathing suit (I live in TX so it would be really helpful if I were confident enough to go swimming). And I'd also like to find an excercise program that I can enjoy enough to do nearly every day.

My Program:
I keep a general log of what I eat, including Calories, Fat, and so on. I exercise at least 20 mins a day (I'm trying to increase that to 40).

Personal Information:
My name is Amanda. I'm a 24 yr old married mother of two (one is 5 and the other is 17 weeks). Currently I'm earning a diploma in wedding consulting. If you want to know what kind of person I am, think a young Roseanne (I'm straight to the point, tell it like it is and if I have to tip toe around someone or something it really irritates me).

Other Information:
I love to read. Thus far, my favorite book is "Outlander" by Diana Gabladon. I enjoy movies (I can't pick just one) I don't like to cook (which is one reason I'm here-too much fast food :) haha).

    Hi Ac!
    Haven't heard from you in a while. Just dropping in to say - I miss you!
    Would be nice to see you in the soapbox or on the debate team.
    Hope all is well!

    Thanks! I know I can't believe I'm planning my own wedding. I've had lots of imaginary practice but to really be doing it can be overwhelming its so exciting!

    We go to tour the house I have pictured on my blog Saturday. It is the closest we've come to finding the perfect house. Hopefully the yard won't slope to much. The only things that it doesn't have that we want are that it's missing a dining room and it has no basement. The basement is a lot more difficult to overcome than finding a space for the dining table but at least it has lots of rooms.

    Stay tuned to the blog. I have a goal to write in it daily so there is much more to come.

    Thanks for the kind words on my page. I am at the point where i can see good things in myself. Still have a good bit to lose but sparkpeople is much different than weight watchers etc. So best of luck to you as well. If you need a shoulder to lean on i am just a computer away.
