I am myself. I have overcome and conquered much in my life. Once weighing 410lbs. I had the gastric bypass in 2008. Losing around 200lbs. Don't let people fool you into thinking the surgery is the easy way out because that is farthest from the truth. You still struggle and fight. I had the surgery for my health. Because in my eyes all sizes are beautiful. But my health was important. And I achieved my goal. I have surpassed much in my life and I am proof of the strength of a woman. We can all overcome with faith, hope, and love. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU BELIEVE!
Be yourselves, honest to yourselves and others. We are special each and everyone of us and yes WE CAN DO IT! Never lose hope because even in the darkest of days there is always a spark of hope! :)

My Goals:
I try to live my life as positive as possible. But there is no perfection. I want to cherish my body and love myself for who I am. I want to be healthy, stress-free and full of love. I am me, just me :)

My Program:
Since having the surgery my life has changed dramatically. Health inside and out. I am gluten sensitive, lactose intolerent, diabetic (controlled by diet). I consider myself a vegetarian. I do not eat red meat, pork, poultry, lamb etc. However; I do eat fish, seafood, and eggs ( I get the eggs at a local farm. A little girl raises them and they are treated with love) I choose to eat this way for my health as well as my belief system. In this world each person can make a change. Never underestimate that fact. The smallest thing can make the biggest difference

Personal Information:
My name is Tanya. I look forward to supporting others and also receiving. Remember we are here for one another. WE CAN DO IT! ONE STEP AT A TIME.... ONE MOMENT AT A TIME....

Other Information:
I love all animals. And I love to read. (but I admit not romance novels. To me reality can be soo much more sweeter) I am a believer in alternative medicine, meditation, healing, miracles, ancient mysteries etc... There is light within everyone of us :)
