The picture that makes up the background of my page is from a trip to Newport, RI in June of 2010. I was 260 lbs (at my heaviest) and was self conscious the entire week. I felt so fat. I look at pictures from that trip, and I don't like the way they make me feel.

Weight has been a battle for me for my entire life, and I honestly don't remember a time when I was at a "normal" weight. I was a fat kid, a fatter teenager, and an ever fatter adult. At 32, I am realizing more and more how quickly time goes by, and I don't want to spend more time like this. If I'm lucky, I still have over half my life to live; it is not too late to change everything now.

I first started Spark in July of 2010, and realized how much potential it could have in changing my life. Then, I just sorta stopped. I picked it up again in January of 2011 and haven't looked back yet. I am losing slowly, but I am losing it for good!

I love life, and want to love living it.

    Thanks for stopping by my "'Negative' Blog Posts" blog!

    To add to what you said, it does really bug me when I see other people getting on people for venting (or "throwing a tantrum" as it is sometimes put). I don't think anyone can tell anyone else how to feel. If someone constantly posts about how they "can't do it" or "it's all too hard," I tend to skip those blogs. But if someone is venting and working through a problem...well, I think that's why we're here.

    Thank you for spending the time to read my blog - I think having just put that blog together - the first time I have actually put the developing story together like that and now the penny has dropped - and I am beginning to realise what I have done!! So - I'm just a bit slow in the uptake!! LOL!!
    However it has proved one thing to me – that if I can do it anyone can do it and you will find that the results are way beyond your wildest dreams!!

    Thanks so much for commenting on my blog! It really does help to know that it won't take as long to get back to the level of fitness i was at before! The thought of going through all that pain all over again was really freaking me out (like shin splits! OUCH)!
