Hey guys,

I am Tessa. I am a 27 year-old mother of a beautiful 5 year old, newly wed, a sometimes college student, sometimes model, dog owner. Whew! Somehow though all that running around doesn't seem to constitute a workout to my body! LOL

I weigh 215lbs. and can't believe it!! I have one major medical hurdle which keeps bringing me right back to here. A Chiari Malformation. This teeny, tiny thing has been determined to have an effect, not only in my head and spine, but with my sleep, my body's ability to determine if it SHOULD store food or not (currently storing EVERYTHING!), my mood, my balance, and so on.

I am DETERMINED to make my way back to health and REMAIN there! Consequently, I noticed no Team on SparkPeople for people with Chiari, so I created one myself.

Looking for nonsensical workout routines that can last my life - not fads or gymrats etc that will only last so long.

My current goal? To get down to 165 by Easter. Let's see if it's possible eh? [Don't worry - I will be happy with ANY weight I lose - I'm not set on the goal - that's just my dream!]

    Hey There :)

    Saw you on the Maryland message board. What part of Maryland do you live? I thought it was interesting that you model. I have been wanting to do that as well. Do you have any tips to how to go about it?

    I see weight loss since my last visit, woohoo!!!

    Did you survive your cold? Sometimes there's nothing like a little illness to kickstart a change emoticon

    I saw on Team Determination you're just coming off a cold. It seems to be that time of year. Hope all is well!

    My best friend during my cold was a C Monster from Naked Juice. I'm not normally a fan of Naked juices, but it tastes like a smooth orange juice and has 1000% of your daily Vitamin C per serving. It's amazing!!
