Hi.

I’m Azetta.

It has been a VERY long time since I have been on here.

Last time I was on, I was 23... in a few short days I will be 26.

Last time ‘round (back in 2014) I was in a great spot... for the most part. I was down 45 lbs, then lost a total of almost 60 lbs overall, and maintained until I became pregnant in late 2015, (yes, I’m a mommy now!) I had gained back practically all of the weight I lost while pregnant.

Once my beautiful daughter was born in July of 2016, one week after her birth, I weighed in at 7 lbs heavier than my pre-baby weight. I had almost lost all of the weight I gained. I thought I would have lost more after that since I was breastfeeding and a stay at home mommy, but unfortunately my life turned upside down.

A few months after my daughter was born I lost my father, then my brother a few weeks after, both unexpectedly. I shut down. I checked out. And I gained all of my weight back and then some. I was in a dark place... and honestly I still am.

I went back to work in Dec of 2016 after I lost my dad and brother to escape the hurt. We lived right across the street from them. After gaining 70+ lbs, I managed to lose 30+ lbs of the weight gained. 20 lbs with a trainer, and about 10+ lbs on my own.

I’m here because I need a change in my life. I’m practically at rock bottom. I quit my job this month and moved back home. I have a 1 year old daughter who’s my entire world and depending on me to be hers. I didn’t know what else to do. I felt as if I was losing control and losing my mind in every aspect.

I know I sound crazy for quitting my job and not having another set up, let alone with moving back home, but I couldn’t function. I couldn’t think. I couldnt feel. I still can’t.

All I do is eat and stuff it all down.

I’m hoping that by coming in here I’ll feel what I once felt... hope.

I am working on making 2018 the most amazing year yet. I’m ready to change the game and start all of the way over. I’m here to be held accountable. To talk with people who understand and get me. I’m here for my daughter, and most importantly... me.

    Hey Azetta! Hope you had a good day. Each day is a new one and each one brings new challenges. It is all the good decisions you make each day that add up to success. So hang in there! I think it is time you start learning how to cook good food. So here is a menu for you and your family. Give your Mom a night off and fix dinner. You cannot imagine how one night off from cooking can be such a relief.

    Chicken Casserole (it takes about 10 mins to throw this together)
    Fresh fruit cut up

    Here is how you do the Chicken dish. Turn your oven on to 400 degrees and let it heat up. Then get a casserole baking dish that is about 3 inches deep. Spray the dish with PAM so things will not stick. Place one chicken breast (without skin or bone) in the dish for each member of your family around the outside part of the casserole dish. Sprinkle paprika on the chicken like you would do pepper. In another bowl, heat up in the microwave 2/3 cup of H2O with 2 Tablespoons of margarine in the water. Then mix 1 box of Stove Top stuffing in the water and butter to moisten the stuffing. Pile the stuffing in the middle of the chicken dish. Then pick a favorite bag of frozen veggies...I like the one that is called Latino Veggies....it has corn and black beans in it. Sprinkle half of the bag on top of the chicken and stuffing. Then take one can of 98% cream of chicken soup and add just a little bit of water to it to make it a thinner consistency. Pour the chicken soup all over top your veggies, stuffing and chicken. Put either a lid on it or aluminum foil. Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes. More like 45 minutes if thick chicken breasts. That gives you a starch, a meat and a vegetable for your dinner. While this is cooking, fix your favorite fruit salad. I like oranges, strawberries, grapes and blueberries. There you go girl!! If your mom has all of these ingredients, you are in business and your family will be amazed over the great meal you fixed them. For tracking purposes, A serving that includes the Chicken Breast, stuffing and veggies = 300 calories. Good luck and let me know how it goes!! You can do it!!

    It takes a lot to make it with the ups and downs but if you look at one day at a time you can make it. Every day is a choice. Make today a great one!

    Your not going to do it... you ARE doing it!

    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me.
