I have a long way to go to reach my goals but with the help of God and my family and friends I know I can do this... I HAVE to do this!

Member Since: 12/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 5,305

My Goals:
My goal is to reach 160lbs... that's 200lbs lower than my highest weight in 2008. I dropped 60lbs over the next year after that but since then my weight has just fluctuated right around 300lbs. That is not and cannot be acceptable. I'm now working toward not only losing the weight but reversing my type 2 diabetes.

My Program:
With the help of my parents, who have both been rather successful through SP, I am working toward my weight-loss goal as well as training to walk/job the P.F. Chang half marathon in January 2013... it's gonna be a lot of work but I'm super excited! :)

Personal Information:
My name is Stephanie, I'm 27 years old and I haven't been healthy a day in my life. I've always struggled with my weight, even since I was a kid. At age 21 I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. This should have been my wake up call but it wasn't. When I graduated college at age 23 I weighed 360lbs... Thank God I'm not at that point anymore and I never will be again!

Other Information:
God is #1 in my life and He has blessed me beyond belief with amazing family and friends. I work 2 jobs: I am the Youth Leader at Abundant Grace and I am the Assistant Manager at Berean Christian Stores. I do more than enough to keep me busy lol. My friends often refer to me as a social butterfly... and they're right :) I love people and I love helping people. I guess that's why both of my jobs are such good fits for me haha :)

    Oh, you can see a MAJOR difference in your face!! You honestly look like a completely different person in your most recent pictures! Your face not only looks thinner, but you look healthier and happier, and that is what matters most!

    I just wanted to tell you first of all thanks for sharing SP with me! I can see already that this is a great tool!
    I also wanted to tell you that you are an amazing woman of God, and you really CAN do ANYTHING you want to because Christ DOES strengthen you! You are a great inspiration, and I consider you a friend and sister, not just a church sister, but the real kind. So keep doing what you are doing! You are the best, and you deserve the best!
