Hi Sparkie Friends.... Notice anything different? I decided to change my user name! I have been thinking about it for a while and decided that Oh2bskinny really isn't who I am anymore. Strange.. but true!

When I started my "healthy living" life in earnest back in November 2007, my dream was to someday live my life and be "skinny". Yes fit and healthy were also important but the big prize to me was SKINNY!! That seemed like such an impossibility ...but I thought wouldn't life be wonderful if it came true?? lol. My weight was such a heavy burden to me at that point and a daily source of unhappiness with myself. I knew something had to change.

Well, here I am more than 4 years later and I think most people would probably classify me now as skinny. I don't really see myself that way however I no longer feel fat or heavy. I still would like to lose a few more pounds, but actually skinny isn't what I'm seeking for my life now. My mindset has changed over the last few year and it is now more important to me to be FIT and STRONG!! Yes, Strong is the new Skinny! So with that being said, my user name just didn't fit.

Strong is the New Skinny!

So now I'm GOING-STRONG! It is a name that fits what I'm doing, how I'm living and what I want for my life. I won't be changing my profile photo so hopefully my Spark Friends will still know me.

Hope you are all doing well and that 2012 finds you Going Strong!!

    Love your name on here! Skinny doesn't even sound appealing to me either. Strong is the new skinny that's for sure! I'm so glad women have changed their mind about their image!

    Hello, I really like your new name and congratulations on living a strong and healthy life. I'm trying to do the same but I do have those days that you say to yourself things like "why didn't you just walk away from those cookies!" You look great and happy 2012.
