Tell me that I can''t and I will show you that I can! I''ve been at this way too long. Lost and maintain 50lbs, but time to go beyond that. Follow me on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Project
MakeYourself A little bit about me personally: My name is Elyssa, or Ellie. I''ve been married for 10 years to a musician and my only love, Joshua - who I never call Josh. We have three amazing boys - Isaiah (9), Daston (10), and my stepson, Braeden (13). I am open minded, passionate, and friendly... But as a Sagittarian, also known to be stubborn, and opinionated. I like tattoos and piercings. I do not like a certain texture of food - like cream styled corn, tapioca pudding, or jello - EW! I work because I have to, but hope one day to be able to work because I am passionate for it. I LOVE going to the gym for a good workout and I love the impact this has had on my life, it''s more than just physical. I live in Ontario, Canada. I collect quotes. I believe our thoughts create our reality, and the Universe moulds it. I am mindful of Karma. I like butterflies. I love music and I love singing even though I really have no talent for it - and I love that my husband encourages me even still. I have no regrets. Sometimes I worry too much. My life is busy, crazy, and hectic but I wouldn''t trade it for anything in the world. I love my husband and 3 boys beyond words. In a nutshell, this is me. "Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail." I have struggled with managing portions, and bingeing - but I feel like I finally have control over this!!! I still struggle with being self conscious and low self esteem, but little by little I am learning to overcome this - I am building confidence. Recently my biggest challenge is time - I work full time, my hubby works full time on an opposite shift to me... working through it. My sons are very active and I will teach them to live a healthy lifestyle - which I can only truly do by being a living example. It''s not just about me anymore... I work out at the gym, and at home. My fav video for home right now is "Biggest Loser Bootcamp" - Bob is making me work for it! "Nothing tastes as good as fit feels!" Anon I am doing a weigh-in every Monday. And on the first of each month, I will weigh-in and take measurements. Height: 5''9" Highest weight: 239.4lbs / 35.3 BMI - September 2009 Goal: 155-160 My ideal weight is about 154lbs, according to this calculator (http://web4health.info/en/answers/ed-dia-
weight-ideal.htm) "Change the voices, in your head, make them like you instead" ~Pink Or on Facebook, come ''like'' my page Project: Make Yourself!

    If it didn’t bring you joy
    just leave it behind
    Let’s ring in the new year
    with good things in mind

    Let every bad memory
    that brought heartache and pain
    And let’s turn a new leaf
    with the smell of new rain

    Let’s forget past mistakes
    making amends for this year
    Sending you these greetings
    to bring you hope and cheer
    Happy New Year!

    Thanx for the AMAZING comments on my page, sweetie! emoticon A lot has chaned in the last several months and Im trying to embrace the change as much as possible. As mentioned in a blog, my life long goal is to be truly happy and that is by embracing the REAL ME who I have lost sight of for so long. It hasnt been easy and Im just at the tip of the iceberg, but Im just happy to start NOW, and not 20yrs from now when Im further into my own misery I created. God has given me a gift...the DRIVE to be happy, the PASSION to want to make others happy, and a WONDERFUL support system...gf, family, and Sparkfriends! I never considered what others saw in my blogs - thank u for telling me I come across as a different person! The old Brittney was just pretending to be happy with her situation. Im so glad that my true happiness comes out in my writing. emoticon

    I hope all is well with u. Looks like ur getting back on track which is GREAT! Even tho I have had great success with my weight loss, I still need to reevaluate and rededicate myself. I have literally developed new eating habits (some not so productive) and need to figure out how to cope with em. Thank u so much for caring abt me!

    So happy to hear from u, hun! emoticon Thanx for the compliment - I feel great too! Kinda been lacking in the motivaton and dedication area in my journey so I really need to do some soul searching again. So many changes have happened in the last 3 months that I dont really know who I am anymore. Keep on Sparking, Sparker!
