Once upon a time my depression led me to fall off the wagon and I gained a bunch of weight...AGAIN. I have always been very short so the weight became very noticeable. Members of my family would say that I was "fluffy", this hurt me and made me feel even worse about myself. I gained all the weight from emotional eating and binging. Whenever I was feeling bored/depressed I'd go to the corner store and get a whole bunch of candy and chocolate then eat it ALL!

BUT NOW...It's time for me to get back into shape again, lose that icky weight I fit for summer!

I want to be fit and active, continue to eat healthy so I can lead a healthy, happy and full-filling life!

My goal is to feel healthy, confident and strong!

*I want to lose the weight I gained.

*I want to have more energy to do the things I love.

*I want to feel STRONG and fit!

*I want to feel good about myself.

    Hey!! Just saw that you were active on Spark again and saw your comment on my page :) Good to hear from ya! I need to reset my ticker- it is definitely not correct. I had a baby last month and still have about 20 lb. of pregg-o weight I;d like to lose. I'm still tracking, but I gotta get it together on keeping my calories lower. As always, my sweet tooth is my downfall...sigh. How have you been??

    Hey Ara!!! Sorry for the delay. Got called into work early 4/5 days this week due to coworker illnesses! Phew have I been busy! I gained back everything, darn it all. I hear ya. I just have to have the want again, and I just don't. Right now there is just so much going on around me, I am not focusing on myself, that is for sure. Hoping 2014 is a great year!!!

    Talk to you soon!

    Hi Ara!
    I'm trying to get back on track! Please join me, I could use the support!
    Life has been so busy that I've slacked on everything.
    It's frustrating and overwhelming but I'm willing to keep trying!
    Hope you are doing well.
