I want my old body back. I have had many attempts at losing weight, but now I feel like I am at the point in my life where I can give this a real shot and be successful.

I went back to school and finished my BA and did it summa! so if i can do that, I feel like anything is possible.

After getting rid of some very unhealthy emotional baggage and habits, I knew the next aspect of my life was to get in shape. Since my clothes had always fit me (albeit much too tight now but still fit) I was able to convince myself that I was ok until I weighed myself and clocked in at my heaviest 174. I was shocked and appalled with myself for allowing myself (lol) to get so far out of shape. I'm sick of feeling sorry for myself and sick of feeling ugly and ill proportioned but I still wasn't ready to do it until I checked my email and saw a msg from spark sitting there. I had at one point, set them all to spam because I didn't want to be reminded about what an epic health failure I was but this one snaked through and I'm glad that gmails spam filters aren't as great as they should be, because I would not be here today. I had at this point already started going to the gym and had been for a little under 10 days and this was like the universes way of saying "wake up and get with the program" so I did.

In just a little bit of time I was able to realize the crap I was eating was doing me no good and how to switch from bad carbs to good and do little things to be healthier...for example, instead of getting that egg and cheese on a croissant at dunkin donuts, i now opt for the eggwhite veggie flatbread or instead of reaching for chips when I have a salty craving, I can go for the soy nuts and Sparks goals really motivate me to try and not go over. And don't get me started on how much I love Sparks fitness tracker.

I'm not looking to change who I am completely but make it less snug for me in this body. I'm getting married soon too and I want to look hotter for my future husband. I'm also a photographer and I want to be able to shoot photos of myself without cringing when I look at the proofs.

xD peace ya'll!

    hello world~

    I want my old body back. I have had many attempts at losing weight, but now I feel like I am at the point in my life where I can give this a real shot and be successful.

    Where'd you go?

    Before you can learn a new way of doing things, you have to unlearn the old way. ... So beginnings depend on endings.
    Here's to new beginnings with CALLING ALL GOONIES!
    emoticon Stick with me kid and we'll both look even more fantastic! I have a plan!
