My name is Holly and I'm 43 years old. I was a chubby child, a fat teenager, and an obese adult. I began my journey at the age of 34 weighing 307 pounds. Only being 5 feet tall, I was about 160 pounds overweight, and going to be in serious trouble if I didn't change my life. I'm a social worker for a hospital, and a single mom to 2 awesome kids who are 14 and 16. I decided that I wasn't going to be the fat mom anymore so I joined Spark in June 2010, and started a journey to a healthier lifestyle not only for me, but for my family as well. UPDATE*** I got a divorce 3 years ago and during that time I regained half the weight I lost. I've been back at it since January 2019 and I've lost 67lbs. I'm about 12lbs from my lowest adult weight and 20 lbs from my ultimate goal weight! I am proof that anyone can do it!

If you want something you've never had, you have to do something you've never done...

Cowards never start. The weak never finish. Winners never quit...

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference...

Success is not final, failure is not fatal. It's the courage to continue that counts...
