I'm Giving All Of My Life This Time!

Hi! My name is Vanessa. I'm here because I would like to try taking control of a life that has never really had control before. I want to prove to myself and to my family that I can take care of myself and that I'm capable of being independent. I have a faith in God that He will help me through this journey.

While I'm here, I hope to reach 130 pounds by 2015. I have a more detailed outline, but I won't get into that unless I'm asked. With any luck, I could get through it faster ...
Hi! My name is Vanessa. I'm here because I would like to try taking control of a life that has never really had control before. I want to prove to myself and to my family that I can take care of myself and that I'm capable of being independent. I have a faith in God that He will help me through this journey.

While I'm here, I hope to reach 130 pounds by 2015. I have a more detailed outline, but I won't get into that unless I'm asked. With any luck, I could get through it faster than I'm anticipating, but knowing myself, I would rather keep my expectations a bit more slacking than what I'm hoping to actually achieve. Most might think that a bad idea, but in my perspective, it's a good way to motivate myself even more. Because if I'm doing better than I was anticipating, it's a great motivator to continue forward.

I have lost a good amount of weight already. (Not with this method, mind you.) Hopefully with this tactic, I will see good results, motivation-wise.

While I know it's hard work to achieve that kind of goal, I am willing to put effort into it. Ideally, I'd like to be closer to 200 pounds by my birthday in 2014. I think it's possible if I put my mind to it. Please help keep me motivated, as it is a very difficult thing for me.

As someone who has gone through the whole depression thing, I'm well aware how motivation can easily disappear. I have gone through a lot. I'm available for some advice, or perhaps as someone to hear you who knows what you're feeling. I'm always open to helping someone in need and I know there's a comfort in talking to someone who has felt exactly how you are.

All in all, I hope to be the next success story and inspire people on this site and others in my life! Have a great day, everyone, and God bless!

My lifetime goal is to learn as many languages as I can. My current repertoire of languages include English, Spanish, French, and Japanese.

I'm an aspiring writer and I love writing stories! I like participating in writing contests and hope that one day I can be a published author with tons of stories out there in the hands of many people!

I also love to sing. I'm kind of shy when in front of people, though, but I'm trying to overcome that.

Vanessa, I love the spark secret you shared about living like you are already at your goal. So often the "secrets" are mundane. This is the first time in almost 2 years I've read that one. It inspired me. I am going to put the phrase "live like you've reached your goal" on the vision poster I am working on.

Blessings, -Bri
