Vivian's Journey

I have come a long way from that size 18/20 woman who was simply miserable. I am now a size 2. The workouts have helped so much. I am a 41 year-old mother of two teenagers. I have learned so much about myself and what I want in my life. I want to live and that is what I am doing.

Oh btw if you have been reading since I started this journey you may ...

Oh btw if you have been reading since I started this journey you may notice the name change. My given name is Joyce, but as the journey continued I picked up the nickname Vivian. It stuck and I like it so that is what I go by most of the time.

Hey Joyce I came across your page by your article that you lost 103. Congratulations!!!!! emoticon I didn't read the womens day article. But I came to your page looked through your pictures, and read some of your blogs.
So you are back on the journey. emoticon
Way to go, as you said on one of your blogs many of us do know exactly how the relationship we have with food is. You did so well, I am so glad you are getting back "on the horse" and starting again. I would love to join you on your journey and on mine too. I agree also it can be exciting getting into a health regime. I get like that. I am on day thirty four and vow I will make it this time. I noticed you haven't blogged much for a while. I hope you are still blogging and hanging in there and working at it. I am adding you as a spark friend.
