"So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles on success; if I persist long enough I will win."

~Og Mandino~

Hi my name is Misty, I am a married mother of four.I have two boys and two girls. Ages 18, 14, 9, and 8. I love to read and I am an avid reader, I almost always have a book in my hand at some point during the day.I am Kentucky native that moved to Florida a few years back and since it is warm almost all year around I am outside a lot, I love the outdoors and love doing things outside like playing sports or hiking or anything physically demanding, thats fun to me(exercising not so much).If you look up Yo Yo dieting in the dictionary there would be a picture of me.I have been over weight for 11 years.It started when I quit smoking and only progressed from there.This is now my time, with the tools that spark people offer I am going to be me again.I am going to find that person again that I use to be.

Update: It has been a long, hard journey of discovery, discovering who I am, what I am capable of, what my strengths are, and how to beat my weakness. The journey is never over and I am still on the track of discovery everyday. I have met some WONDERFUL friends from sparkpeople, friends that even though I have never met are so dear to my heart. I have fell down, laid down, thrown my hands up in the air, cried in frustration but I have NEVER quit and I am still moving. I have lost 50 pounds with sparkpeople, my friends here, and the wonderful teams that I discovered from the BLC teams. I am finding that person I am meant to be, better yet I am CREATING her. So onward I am moving.."Do not fear going forward slowly; fear only to stand still." ~ Chinese Proverb~
