My thought process when i first joined

HELP Don't want 2 have 2 sew my mouth shut (I'd just figure out a way to stuff it in my nose anyway)

I just got married in February and when i looked at our honeymoon pictures i almost got sick... i hate all of the pictures, i look so much smaller in my mind! I am cutting out the crap and starting to make myself fit my self image!

As an aside, i recently went to a store and purchased some jeans, they fit great! i was so excited until i read the brand name - "Duplex jeans". I think their motto should be Duplex Jeans, for when you are as big as a house.

That is how i was thinking when i first joined Sparks, in fact i am embarrassed to say that was my introduction... that's how negative i felt! It's amazing what one week with Sparks has changed my opinion of myself and getting my life back on track - thanks SPARKS! Since being with Sparks it is amazing just how far my thought process about self image and getting healthy and yes exercising has changed... i can't wait to see what the scales says next week!

Winnie (my dog) is an excellent companion when i decide to take a walk... she likes to sniff around alot when we are going up hill (which is good because then i can catch my breath) but she's good at keeping a fast pace on the flat areas. Even though i am hating getting on the orbitrek downstairs when it would be so much more comfortable sitting on the couch, i do like the feeling once i finish and my legs feel like they each weigh a million pounds because it means that i am one step closer to getting healthy!
