Hi! My name is Bethany and I' am 24 years old.

I'am here to finally break my bad habits, start using my gym membership, and get down to the weight I've been wanting to be at for a long time.

I've been gaining weight, slowly, ever since high school and throughout college. Since I've been married, the weight really started adding up. I knew there was a problem when my pants starting fitting tighter and some just didn't fit anymore.

It was hard to see that I was in-deed gaining weight. It took a horrible picture to see how big I was really getting. I knew from then on out -- I needed to make a change. Since January I had been trying hard to loose the 10-15 pounds. I stopped fast food and soda, went back on it, got a gym membership, stopped using it.

Motivation is what I needed.

At the beginning of November I decided I had to make a change now. My husband will be returning from Iraq in January and my goal is to loose at least 10 pounds. I want to see that look on his face when we see each other again. I want him to be blown away.

Together, with my friend Katy, I have put in effect

:: Operation Spark Diet ::

(Operationkabe) aka Katy and myself have teamed up to motivate each other, keep each other in check, and get these pounds off!

I may not be the biggest, but I am also not the smallest. I may never be any of those, but I need to be happy.

SparkPeople has been so motivational and inspirational. Thank you to everyone! Together, we can do this!

Personal Information:
I am from Fort Worth Texas and will be 24 this month. I am an Army wife waiting for my husband to return home from Iraq. Together, my friend Katy and myself are trying to loose weight and get motivated! We are hoping this site will help!

Other Information:

Hello, do you know me?
If you don't, you should.
I'm a pound of fat.
And I'm the HAPPIEST pound of fat that you would ever want to meet.
Want to know why?
It's because no one ever wants to lose me;
I'm ONLY ONE POUND, just a pound!
Everyone wants to lose 3 pounds, 5 pounds, or 15 pounds, but never only 1.
So I just stick around and happily keep you fat.
Then I add to myself, every so slyly,
so that you never seem to notice it.
That is, until I've grown to 10, 20, 30 or
even more pounds in weight.
Yes, it is FUN being ONLY ONE POUND OF FAT,
Left to do as I please.
So, when you weigh in, keep right on saying,
"Oh, I only lost one pound." (As if that were
such a terrible thing.)
For you see, if you do this, you encourage others to keep me around because they will think I'm just not worth the effort.
