I am the master of my heart, I am the captain of my soul...

17/3/2010 - Hi, I'm a University student from Glasgow, UK. I recently turned 21 - I had a gorgeous dress that I really wanted to wear and it now won't fit me. :(
I realised that that had been happening a lot with my clothes - I've had been steadily gaining weight for the past 6 years but last summer I really packed on the pounds!
I have yo yo dieted loads of times, and every time I sit and tell myself 'this time its for real' I end up quitting and binging when I'm sad/stressed. I am really hoping I can do it this time, and thats why I'm here, on SparkPeople, hoping by getting serious and interactive in my diet and exercise I'll finally reach my goals! :D

    Hope that you got to your first weigh in with SW and that it wasn't too onerous! Remember most of the people there need 'help' too or want to help others. They can be really fun places. Let us how it went at the Spark Cafe please.

    It’s been more than a year since you read my blog entry, “Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Not Just Size 5”…I hope that the last year has brought you happiness and success in life. But above all, I hope that you have remembered how beautiful you are!

    Beauty... when you look into a woman's eyes and see what is in her heart. ~Nate Dircks emoticon

    Always remember that you are beautiful and strive to encourage others to find, and see their beauty as well! emoticon

    You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing. ~Marie Stopes
