"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."

"It's hard to beat a person who never gives up."

Permanent changes lead to permanent results. Don't make changes you can't live with. Wisdom gleaned from other successful Sparkers and totally true.

I'm a 36-year-old mother of one awesome 8-year-old boy and I am married to my best friend. I'm a pretty lucky girl.

I'm struggling to lose what some days feels like it might as well be tons, but I guess the important thing is I keep going, through good days and bad.

Fitness Minutes: 6,565

My Goals:
Short-term goal of 200 lbs. I haven't seen that weight since my early 20s.

Other random goals I'd like to eventually achieve:

To find that knitting a sweater no longer requires 17 (or any other insanely high number) skeins of yarn...

For a normal bath towel to fit around me.

To jog or run without dying.

To no longer have to buy clothes with a W tacked on the size.

To no longer have a BMI in the obese range.

To wear a single digit pants size. (I haven't since middle school)

My Program:

Personal Information:
Nursing student. That's about all I have time for these days, and that sums me up for now. I started a third attempt at losing weight April 5, 2015. Maybe it'll stick this time.

Other Information:
I'm a knitter and all around crafty type. I used to have a yarn addiction, but not so much anymore. Fabrics and quilting have been added to the mix. I really don't have time for either one anymore because of school.

I used to work from home as a medical transcriptionist, then I lost my job in June of 2013. Now I am unemployed and having no luck finding anything new. I decided to go back to school and if all goes well, I'll be entering my first semester of nursing classes and clinicals this fall.
