**Okay, so I am afraid to update for 2015, because I don't want to jinx myself, but I am back, and have been for 25 days!**

My name is Christy and I am 35 years old. I currently weigh 219 lbs. I have been overweight pretty much my whole life, but the last five years I've really been living large. I read a success story about SparkPeople in People magazine, and here I am.

I want to post a quote I read on my new SparkFriend Sherry528's blog, because it was so inspirational to me:

"ANYWAY-yeah----we can still have good stuff---AND---we can then have a body that we can move around in---feel good about---wear clothes we'd like to wear---yeah, it'll be awhile comin'---and food is "right now"!!!!---but---so is the sense of pride each time we choose to bank on that future prize."
