Hello everyone! My name is Jessica but I go by Jessie or Jess, sometimes the occasional "Hey you!' as well! ;) I'm 23 years young and I've been overweight the majority of my life. As soon as my mom purchased our first computer growing up, my life completely changed - I was glued to that computer screen and basically stopped playing outside! I'm here to change that!

Member Since: 9/15/2013

My Goals:
My long term goals:

1.) Lose 127 lbs
2.) Learn to eat healthier.
3.) Exercise daily.
4.) Inspire others to lose weight.
5.) Run a 5k!

My short term goals:

1.) Quit drinking pop!
2.) Drink more water!
3.) Learn portion control.
4.) Keep with my exercise regimen.
5.) Learn that it is not a 'diet' but a life style change!

My Program:
I'm currently taking baby steps in order to help me reach my goal! The first few baby steps I'm doing right now, are:

1.) Quitting pop.
2.) Drinking more water.
3.) Begin to exercise.

I've always drank nothing but pop, never drank water, and been a couch potato. I figure those were going to be my first three baby steps to get me going!

Personal Information:
I'm from a small town of about 30k people in East Central, Illinois! I'm the youngest of five - I've got three sisters and one brother.

Currently, my fiance and I live with my sister and her family (her husband and three active little boys) because we've hit a hard time financially. I don't have any children (yet) but I pray that it will happen sometime in the near future.

Other Information:
Currently Reading:
Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon - Book 2 in the Outlander series!

Previously Read/Highly Recommended:
1.) The Shadowfell series by Juliet Marillier
2.) The Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead
3.) The Bloodlines series by Richelle Mead
4.) The Mortal Instruments Series by Cassandra Clare

    Thanks for adding me as a spark friend. I added you too! Best wishes on your spark journey! SP has so many tools to help you on your way. Glad you joined the book club. We read a book together once a month. Hop over to the Monthly read forum and suggest a scarey/horror book for the month of October. emoticon emoticon

    Hi--thanks for stopping by to check on me! I have lost 1 more lb since we chatted on 9/15. I'm still walking at least 5K steps a day--faster and faster, cuz we got a new puppy!--and still eating well. I think I have to add strength training to speed up the transformation.

    Congrats on finishing the Couch25K!!
