I have a wonderful husband who I've been married to for 6years, a beautiful 6 year old daughter. I am about to graduate with my associates degree and start the University of Illinois School of Social Work and I work a full time job. My life is very stressful but I wouldn't change anything about it. I have finally realized it's time to make a change and it's time to put me first for once.

UPDATE 4/1/2014
A lot has happened in the last year. My dad passed away unexpectedly, I had major back surgery, and I'm about to graduate and move onto the University of Illinois. It has taken me a lot of excuses and ups and downs to finally realize that I am worth losing this weight. I lost 30 pounds (half of my first goal) and then became and emotional eater and gained it all back. So here I am again, looking for friends and motivators to do this journey with when I start back at my original weight of 242. This time next year I hope to be at my goal weight of 142 and I am hoping to run a 5k and 10k next year.

Update 10/1/15
A lot has happened since my last update! I have now been married over 7 years and now have a 6 (almost 7) year old daughter. I have graduated with my associates and now am at the University of Illinois School of Social Work. I am in my senior year and will start my internship in January. I will be graduating in may 2016 with my Bachelors and hoping to go to graduate school starting next fall (2016). I just got a new job at Carle Foundation Hospital, which has always been my dream employer. Once I graduate I hope I can get my dream job as a medical Social Worker at Carle. I have gained about 10 pound, so I am now starting at 252. I am hoping to finish the year losing 25-30 pounds.

    Loved your comment on DARKEYEZ post! I couldn't agree more -- my biggest issue used to be (and sometimes still is) doing poorly one day (or one meal) and then "giving up" for the rest of the day (or giving up on my plan for a while!) That's part of why I joined SparkPeople -- because I recognized that's a super unhealthy attitude and I really need to force myself to look at the big picture.
    You sound like a sweet and awesome person! The VERY BEST of luck to you in all of your goals! If you ever need a cheerleader or any support, hit me up! I'm always there for ya!
