I own lots of clothes smaller than me. The heavier I got the more clothes I bought to 'look better'
After moving up 4 sizes I have 10x the clothes.

It has dawned on me...thinking about me is NOT selfish!
At 25 I was 140 lbs. and measured 36/27/36....
at 61, 246 lbs. I measured at 50/50/50, a cube!
White bread,sugar,and processed foods are killers.
Since joining Spark my foods are my priority... I think more about fresh fruits, lots of veggies, unprocessed meats. Not what is quick in the frig. when I get home from work.
I want to be healthy at 90, God willing!
So I think about me more. Why did I wait so long?
I read Spark stories and see people having the courage to stop bad habits and acquire healthy ones! What an impact on their lives.
If I have 30 more years to drag this Earth suit around...I want it way lighter as I age.
My husband feels I do not need to change...
horse manure to that!
Looking at my pictures...I do not know this woman!
I simply want a better looking me who always feels great...that would be marvelous.
BELIEVE ME,I DID NOT WANT TO POST PICTURES... but there is a lot to be said for public humiliation.
I live on a ranch with my milk goats, husband and son, but.....
I have only Spark people to help motivate me...

    Meg! Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement on my sparkpage. I apologize for taking so long to respond - but this week was just crazy.

    It's funny how SO many people can say the same things, in different ways, but only one person really resonates with you. And I feel you did that with me.

    I love your honesty on your sparkpage. I have had the pleasure of being a "cube" nearly my entire life! Even when a much healthier weight - I have no hips, no butt, no waist! Hah. But, I'd rather be a healthy, skinnier cube - than a couch potato cube.

    Little movement. Improved food choices.
    I've got this.
    We've got this.

    I'm going to catch up to your weight in now time :)

    With similar start and goal weights, I hope to see us both at our goal weights together!
