I have been on this journey of trying to "lose weight" for several years now. I have used Sparkpeople twice in the past and lost a significant amount of weight each time. The first time, I let the weight come back for some stupid reason. I wish I would have thought of all the hard work I put in and stopped myself from doing it. If only I could go back in time! The most recent time was quite different. I have been diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis and the last year has been so up and down for me. It has been quite a struggle just to live and I almost didnt make it at one point. With this desease my weight has been affected because I can go days with out eating when Im having an "attack" and then when i feel better I will eat anything in sight...even if its bad for me. This caused my weight to go up and down so much it wasnt even funny. I am still struggling with my condition but I believe every day I become stronger. My husband and I have decided to start the journey together this time. He needs to loss a lot of weight so that he will be around for our future and I need to eat better so I can properly manage my condition. Together I have no doubt that we will succeed!

My Goals:
My goal is to first learn to eat healthier because I have to due to my condition...if I want to be around in 20 years. Of course I also want to lose weight because it has been so up and down lately that its not good for me. I also hope that doing this with my husband will bring us closer together. No doubt doing something this life changing together, it will!

My Program:
I count calories daily and go to the gym at least 3 times per week for an hour doing a combo of carido and strength training. Also working on drinking more water water water!

Personal Information:
I am 28 years old and married to my highschool sweetheart. We dont have any children but we do have 2 awesome dogs (boxers named Barnum and Dewey) who mean the world to us and ARE our children. I love love love sports, especially football and hockey. My family means the world to me and I want to be healthier so I can be around longer with them! I have my associates degree in criminal justice and have always wanted to be a probation officer but it never happened. Currently at the moment I am not able to work due to my medical condition but I hope to someday get back into working because it gets quite boring these days :p

Other Information:
I really love any TV show involving crime it seems. Some of my favorites are The Shield, CSI (the original,) Crimainal Minds, Southland, Blue Bloods and The Defenders. I also really enjoy House, Two and a Half Men, American Idol and several other reality shows. My favorite books are the entire Harry Potter series. A-Freaking-Mazing!

    Thank you for taking the time to read and leave a message on my blog. I found it a hard blog to write as it rather laid me bare!! However I felt that, indeed I hoped that my honesty might help to rekindle the Spark in some and give hope to others!!
    The reaction to the blog has been overwhelming.
    Why overwhelming you might ask? Because I don’t believe that I am doing anything out of the ordinary!! I hope that the over-all message that you took away from that blog is one of hope – that if I can do it – you can do it too!! Its not an impossible dream – it is something that anyone and everyone can achieve. You can read more on this in my short “Open a few doors “ blog that I posted as a follow up.
    Again, thank you for spending the time to read it.
