I am a 33 year old who has become obese and don't like it. I want to change for the better.
My main goal is to get to a healthy weight.
Drinking more water, Cut out soda completely, eat less and smaller portions, exercise daily, drink and eat more fruits and veggies.
I currently live in Virginia Beach, Va. I am happily married and am owned by 4 adorable ferrets (Luna, Artemis, Diana, and Hecate).
I love the Japanese culture, and am a big fan of Anime and J-Pop.
| current weight: 183.0
I just wanted to drop by and say hi and let you know that I'm still around even though I haven't been on SP consistently for quite a while. I'll hopefully be all caught up from my year-of-challenges in a few months and then finally can get back to ME! Until then, I'm back to doing what I can in the few spare moments in between work, work, and oh, work. Thanks so much for the messages you've left me! I've missed you too! :)

Hello spark friend! I hope you are doing well and working towards your life goals. It's OK to take a break once in awhile (I've taken quite a few since I joined SP a year ago!), but it really does help to touch base every few days (even if it's just spinning that darn wheel :) so that you don't lose sight of your fitness and weight loss goals. You are worth the effort, don't ever give up until you're satisfied. I wish you the best and hope to hear from you soon!

Are you still here? It's been a while since you've updated your status or since I've seen you around... Hopefully you're just lurking and quietly still chasing your own goals but in case you're not, please remember:
People disappear for all sorts of reasons. Life gets in the way, we forget or change our views on what we deem is important, we get buried under stress, frustration, illness. We sometimes give up, throw in the towel, or just promise ourselves that once things get better/easier/calmer, we will hitch up our socks and come back fresh. We've all done it. We've all been there. And if perhaps, you just need a supportive hug, or a helping hand or a word of inspiration, please know that I am offering it to you with no judgment, no guilt. It seems like it's been a while since you've been here and I just wanted to let you know that you are missed.

If you are in need of a little realistic motivation, please, please read my blog post "Letting Go of Expectations". It helped me tremendously just writing it and hopefully it will pass on some inspiration to you as well. :)
