Back on the saddle once again.
My name is Melissa. I am 33 years old. I have lost most of my father's family, including my father to obesity and all the complications that can arise from it. The majority of my mother's family suffers from many ailments including some of the following: depression, bi-polar, heart disease, alzheimer's, obesity...ok, you get the point. I don't want to be another statistic on my family tree.
I need to refocus. Once again, I have been focusing on everyone else's needs. Focus on myself, my hubby, and my son. I matter. I am important. I CAN DO THIS =)

Other Information:
Philippians 4:13 --- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flats called Jobs.
But, if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perseverance, insurance called Faith, a driver called Jesus, you will make it to a place called Success.

    Welcome to Spark People, since joining my self I have learned to start out slowly and increase my goals. I have lost over 30 pounds since joining and have maintained my weight loss. I haven’t reached my goal weight but with the help of spark and my friends here I know that I will soon. I urge you to find a team that will suit your needs or interest. This will help you to find support that you may need for you to reach your goals. Join in with their challenges and chats. That way other like yourself will get to know you.
