For my History: go to my blog

Every SMALL choice I ever made changed MANY lives outside of mine. I would never change anything painful that affected me because it would take away from the people who got something out of my choice. :)

I have been gone from Spark for a long time. I recently underwent major surgery. They found a huge mass where my ovary used to be. When I say big.... picture 9 months pregnant big. I had lost some weight from my highest weight of 335. Down to around 300, this mass weighed over 15 pounds.

My 8 year relationship ended as soon as he found out about my serious health problems and I might not be able to conceive :( I waited so long to have kids and now my health issues might not allow me to have kids.

I met a man who is exactly my opposite, and I was so worried about how different we were. He stood beside me through everything. I weighed 323 when I started dating him and I got down to 280, he was always here now matter my weight or size or health issues. He slept on the floor at the hospital when I was recovering. He is truly the love of my life.

I have been on rest since the surgery. December 18, 2013 they removed that huge life threatening mass. I started to be able to move, but February 12, 2014 I stretched and hurt myself, so I'm back on the bed :-( On the plus side..... He proposed on February 12! and I said YES!

So I'm not able to work out and I still want to lose weight, so I'm coming back here to COMMIT TO MYSELF!

My goals are to change my LIFESTYLE to be honest with myself and love myself. My physical and emotional goals are to have a healthy body image and be able to shop in the regular section of stores instead of plus size.

I want to have a family someday and I want to be healthy BEFORE I get pregnant.

Personal Information:
I've spent much of the last ten years travelling living all over from Indiana to California, Louisiana to Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, New Mexico to wherever the next dart dropped on the map. But, Im from AZ!! I love to change my hair color. Tattoos. Piercings are rad. I met an amazing guy in my hometown when I was here visiting from Hawaii, fell in love and we've faced car wrecks, life threatening illnesses, and struggle, but he never leaves. He is flawed and so am I, but we make each other better!

Other Information:
Music is Life!

My life *sparkles*

I have so many goals for my life. My own personal quote has always been "You have to risk it to feel it" (and in the end determine if it was worth it)

    Thanks Christina for adding me as a friend. You've got quite the story to tell, girlfriend. I am anxious to get to know you better and I think we will be good friends. I am proud of the way you have persevered and haven't let life knock you down when you could have just curled up in a fetal position and died. You've got a lot of moxy and I like that. I am on a high right now. I have lost 7 pounds this week--the bad part is I've had diarrhea for 3 days and that's probably where all the weight has gone. I can't hardly keep anything down and I don't feel like eating. This is all so surreal for me because I'm on heavy narcotics and so I'm usually constipated. Diarrhea?? What's that?? LOL Sorry for being so graphic. The pictures of your tumor in your blogs were gnarly. Hard to believe you were carrying that thing around. I hope you are feeling better without it in you now and I hope your health continues to improve. I think we are both fashionishta's too so we have that in common. I go clothes shopping all the time. At least once a week. It's my dirty little habit. Well, I hope I haven't bored you to tears and with all your globe hopping, if you ever make it to Portland, OR, stop in and say hi!
    Hugs, Lauri

    OMG ITS YOU!!!!! My jaw dropped when I saw the name. I never forgot about you. I checked on your page a few times last year and then I was off Spark myself for a while, gaining weight... :/
    Honey I worried about you so much after the last time we talked and you fell off the Spark planet. I AM SOOOOO HAPPY TO SEE YOU BACK! I am back too. YAY. And congrats on all your new positive life events. Forget those bad ones...
    WOW, I am so excited to "see you"!
