I am on a journey to be a better me and I believe that joining a community will help. I am already on a weight loss program set by my doctor but the support could be really helpful.

PHENOMENAL WOMAN - by Maya Angelou
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms

PHENOMENAL WOMAN - by Maya Angelou
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing of my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can't see.
I say
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
The palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose 100 - 150lbs.

My short term goals are to:
1. Not get any larger
2. Lose 50lbs by my 30th birthday in December



My Program:
I need to intake 2700 calories with 25% of that being protein until I lose 30lbs and get tested again.

Personal Information:
My first blog is very long and describes me a bit.

I'm 29yrs old and live in Ontario, Canada. I have always been overweight.

Thanks to the wonderful matriarchs in my family, I am confident, sociable, respectful, grateful and friendly.

I look forward to meeting many friends here.

Hi Miss Muse, Welcome to SparkPeople.... I enjoyed your Sparkpage and your blogs. I think you might enjoy Rootin for Ruby team, if you get her show in Canada?! Also your weight ticker says you weigh 689 or some such but you said you're 312 ish, and your picture looks great. I am adding you as a SparkFriend because we all need a friend when we join! You sound like you've got the spark and that there will be no stopping you! Just take it one day at a time and log your nutrition and fitness and read and write those blogs! Sincerely, riva rivaderchi emoticon emoticon
