Hi, This is Brenda and you are reading my journey to success.. Welcome to my page!

All my adult years I was either chubby at my lighest weight of 165 or obese at my heaviest weight of 185 lbs. When I became obese after high school, it happened all so fast I didn't even notice until I was not able to fit into my old cloths anymore. Looking back, I blame my lack of self interest in myself. I was 125 lbs and was thinking I am fat but not in a way of eating disorder but because I was unaware of healthy self image. I simply didn't care how I was looking. Lots of junk food in school cafetaria didn't help this image either. By the time I graduated and spent some time alone I was 185 lbs.

When I became obese, I continued not to care as it was easier. I complained about how I cannot shop and how I cannot find clothes to fit me, I wasn't doing anything to change this fact. I was distrubed by my unhealthy body but not able to change it. I was devastated emotionally. Also a lot of things was going on in my personal life so the change came much much later than needed.

In 2004 I attended to college and in the mean time I have lost 22 pounds and was 165 lbs. I was able to keep it on most of the time. But not able to lost more as I would like to.

A year ago, I realized I put back all the weight on. I am now again 185 and it won't even budge unless I take action. I have many more emotional problems that lets me to not to care and indulge fast food, unhealthy eating habits, etc.

As of today (15.03.2010) I step up and end this for good! I will watch what I eat and be more concious about the food choices I make. This is something I gotto do in order to be happy with myself.

Also my brother's wedding is coming and I no longer want to be the fat sister among my other sisters. I deserve better than that!

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
