I am Melissa...I am upbeat, energetic and fun loving! I ENJOY motivating, and encouraging others because it forces me to hold myself accountable. I think thats what I LOVE about this site...

I am 25yrs old and I Have ALWAYS been heavy... On the morning of my heaviest, 287lbs, I delivered our first child, our son. (March 2009). I was lucky to only gain 17 lbs with the pregnancy and quickly lost 30lbs afterwards... then I did nothing. I was sitting at 260(give or take a few depending on the day) and now, I have decided that not only do I need to be healthy for myself, but for my husband and my son.

I live a hectic life as a full time Wife, Mom and a full time job! But I have DECIDED that I WILL MAKE TIME TO BE HEALTHY...I dont have the time NOT to anymore!

If I am ever going to have motivation, its now.

I would love to make new friends along my way!


I apparently started this account back in 2007...and obviously never used it...but its good for me to see my weight then, was 272... so...if I remember correctly, I actually put this site to use late September 2009...

I went on a "spark strike" and stopped using the site out of pure laziness! I did keep trying to loose weight and am down to 245 - I need a kick into high gear though! So, Im Back!
