emoticon STARRYEYEDJENNY and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi Jenny- Wow, grabbing responsibility is the first step so good for you for that! Soda free is a great first step. Somewhere on Spark there's a chart that shows how many lbs a year are due to it. Cool guy loving you for you, with eight acres, get out there, new puppy, old dog, doesn't matter, getting active does. For healthy eats, take a look at Chef Megs postings, great original recipes and healthy re-dos of submitted ones. We're here for you, go for it. Getting down? Post it as support is the best thing.

My name is Jenny and I am about to turn 30 the end of June. I've had a weight problem all my life. Growing up, my mom always cooked the most delicious meals... the ones that are drenched in butter and fat. She always pushed the desserts and the sodas and so I grew up with unhealthy portions and snacking. But at some point... you have to stop blaming others and start taking the responsibility upon yourself. That's what I am trying to do. As of now, I have been soda free for almost a month. I was following Weight Watchers (I previously lost 60lbs on it) but because of tight finances, I can no longer subscribe. I'm the kind of person who needs motivation and support and I just felt like I wasn't getting it.

My boyfriend is proven to me that my body does NOT attract love... I do. He's been very supportive so far in my no-soda deal. He very rarely drinks it in front of me and hardly ever asks me if I want some. He has two big dogs that he walks on his 8-acres and always lets me come along. Not only that but we just got a new puppy that I am hoping will be my walking partner. I am excited for all these awesome changes coming.

June of last year I participated in my first 5k. I didn't run it but I am hoping to one day. I love doing C25K and Zumba. I love to cook and bake and am always looking for new, HEALTHY recipes! I currently weigh 336.2lbs so I definitely have a LONG way to go, but I know with my own determination and the wonderful support of those around me, I can and I will be successful.

If anyone would like to be buddies on here (Or on Lose It) please feel free to message me! I have a blog:

I look forward to celebrating YOUR successes as well as my own!

God Bless!
