Note to self: Jen, Make it happen. You know you're worth it! Stop giving up on yourself. Prove to everyone you CAN do it... including yourself. ~~~~~~~~~~~~

A little background..... My name is Jennifer and I live in sunny Florida (home of the puffy white clouds). I'm originally from Illinios (suburb of Chicago) but I have lived here for the last 19 years and I LOVE love LOVE it here! I have been with my husband Joe for 22 years and we have three amazing children ages 20, 16 and 10. I co-own a framing construction business with my husband and also work outside the home as an Office Manager for a construction company as well. I couldn't be happier with my life except for this weight issue. There is just too much of my life left to live and I don't plan on spending it like this. My goal is to shed 73 lbs. and go from 218 lbs. to 145 lbs. 145 is my weight goal however my ultimate goal would be 135. We'll see how this goes. I am so glad for the continual support of SparkPeople and all the people who make it an amazing place to reach beyond yourself and find your dreams.

To all my Spark Friends...Join me on this journey, let's motivate & inspire each other. Add me, read my blogs, get to know me and I promise I will support you in return. We are SparkBuddies for life! This is OUR time, our year and most importantly our lives we are changing from this point on. It's ok even if you fall....just get back up ....you may fall 7 times but as long as you get up 8 that's all that matters. May we all kick a little booty during the process! We can rock this! :)
