My Story Goes Something Like This: I've always seen myself as fat, as doomed to be obese. My mother and aunts were proof that that's what life held for me. I was always a little bigger than the other girls, but never realized I was volumptuous and attractive, I thought I was pudgy but in reality I was the real-deal, the "hour-glass." Because I had wider hips I was "Fat." The physical reality was so much different than my emotional reality. The only thing wrong with me was my incredibly low self-esteem. Even in 2005, jogging regularly, riding my bicycle to the grocery store and around town, weight-training - I thought I was fat. (see wedding pic.) Then I got a job sitting in a medical office all day with people bring free food, donuts, cookies to try to get the doctors to peddle their drugs. I gained 30 lbs in 2 years. My pants actually ripped at work one day. But I didn't do anything about it. I always felt hopeless. I had a victim mentality. I was defeated. I found sparkpeople through my cousin. So here I am. Using the success stories on sparkpeople, the nutrition tracker, the positive vibe.

    Hi. If you would like to try something different with a little challenge...I have one for you to consider. It's a small private team that competes with others within the larger X-Weighted team. Doing various challenges. Runs for 8 weeks. Main requirement is to post weight weekly...other activities, all though very beneficial, are optional. Drop me a note if you have questions or would like to join us.

    Thanks for the comment on my running post! I didn't start out running a 5k once a week - I started out fighting to walk 2 miles while pushing my then-1-year-old daughter in a stroller while getting her older brother to preschool, fall of 2012! After a few months, the walking got easier, so I started adding a bit of a jog here and there. Fast forward to January 2013, and I started thinking "hey, maybe I could run a 5k!", and that turned into "hey, I love to swim and bike, maybe I could do a triathlon", and that turned into my first triathlon in later summer 2013. I've done one every summer except last summer (went back to work, and wanted to make sure I had time to spend with my kiddos without the pressure of training for a race), and I'm signed up for an Olympic distance one this summer. One step (or swim stroke, or bike pedal) at a time!

    I would love to give you a Team Spark Goodie but you have not posted on the Conservative Christian Women team for over thirty days.

    Hope you are doing well.
