Jen's Journey into ONEderland!

I've been overweight for as long as I can remember, but I don't let it keep me from living life to the fullest. I try my best to not put anything in life off because of my size. Life is too short!!

I know that NOW is the time for me to get my health under control. I want to do this on my own, without surgery or drugs.

I'm looking forward to meeting lots of new friends here! Feel free to give me a shout!

You have come so far already! I know that you still have a ways to go but I certainly hope that once in a while you're able to stop, look at what you've accomplished already and say, "wow. I'm pretty amazing." Yay, you!

Thank you for adding me to your list of friends. Like you, I love to travel, and I am working to get rid of the extra pounds so I can go with more ease.

Good luck on your journey to good health.

Welcome to The Secret! I love your attitude! Life is meant to live and enjoy!!! My husband and I have been wanting to take ballroom dance lessons for some time now (we LOVE to dance) but due to his work schedule, we haven't been able to squeeze it in. But it will be soon! Looking forward to getting to know you!
Make it a powerful day!
Lisa
