I am a waitress and have been in recovery of drug addiction for over a year. I am 22 years old. I belong to a gym. I go 5 times a week. On the tredmil I walk a lap then i run a lap...again and again for about 30 mins. Sometimes I try to run for longer than a lap. My fridge is full
of healthy stuff. salads, veggies, whole wheat bread, egg whites. I take vitamins. I usually go out to eat twice a week and I splurge. I eat half a bag of a small popcorn when i go to the movies. Im about 122 pounds. I am a chronic smoker. I have alot of stuff going on in my life, and diet and fitness is not my expertise but i do have commen sense. I try to eat a small meal every 3-4 hours...but when i splurge its hard for me to accept it and move on. Instead I say to myself " I already ate a burrito, drank cocacola and ate popcorn so i guess i will eat alot more and start a new diet tomorrow." I am realizing that eating for me is very simular to my old drug using behaviors. I am hoping that this website will be helpful for me and allow me to be helpful to others as well. I have faith that i can be the person I want to become. And that person I want to become is beautiful on the inside and out. I would love to be part of this community called sparkpeople and form a fellowship and maybe become a tool for someone else.

My Goals:
To lose the love handles. Have a more healthy eating routine and still be satisfied. To be strong when i am out to dinner with a menu in my face or at carrabas when they bring the bread. and to motivate others like me who are just powerless over food.

My Program:
"I can do all things with Christ who strengthens me...with one foot in front of the other." is something i tell my self when things are tough, or when i need strength. Beileve it or not...but there has to be something miraculous about that sentence because it always works for me.

    Hey! Just saw your comment on my page about veganism- if you'd ever like some help with recipes or just breaking cravings, let me know! One site that's worked wonders for me is - they have some pretty amazing stuff! May I ask if you're looking towards veganism for health or ethics?
