I'm 30 and have a 10 year old daughter and newborn baby boy. I'm making this my last chance to lose weight, so I better do it!
I have PCOS and thyroid problems. Now that I have them both under control hopefully losing weight will be a lot easier.

I was a little chunky as a child but in high school I got involved in dance and all the pounds melted away. After high school, I got a job as a flight attendant and being in heels all day helped keep my weight under control. Then the husband and children came along and I quit the airlines and now work a desk job doing accounting. My poor eating habits and sedentary lifestyle have left me over 50 pounds overweight. Everything changed after going on vacation to Disneyland and not wanting to have my picture taken at any of the attractions. I lost some pounds while on the trip and decided to keep it up when I got home, so I rejoined sparkpeople and so far I'm heading in the right direction. I can use all of the support that I can get and I can't wait to make a permanent change.

Update 04/30/10: I was maintaining my weight for a semester, but then a 10-day trip to DisneyWorld had me gain 10 pounds!!! I am back and ready to look good for this summer!

Update August 2011: I'm back from having my baby boy and I'm the biggest that I've ever been! I've started running again and taking classes at the local rec center. I'm hoping that things will click soon.

I am *DONE* being the fattest one out of all of my friends.
I am *DONE* being the fat girl at my work.
I am *DONE* not feeling confident within myself.
I am *DONE* having to worry about where to shop for clothes.
I am *DONE* not loving my body!

    me too! that's actually why I changed my sparkname a couple months ago because someone had found me and mentioned it and I was not that thrilled about it! Certain people I wouldn't care if they know and I'm open about it,but not with coworkers, acquaintances, or people on facebook, so I totally understand!

    hahaha yes... please feel free to spread them around! if you're on facebook you can also find us at and sometimes we put up funny little "extras" there. It's definitely silly, but fun. Yes, I do most of the editing and I see it as one of my creative outlets!
    Hope all is going well/better for you!
