I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance.

To have a friend, be a friend.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

My Program:
Joined SparkPeople and have been keeping track everyday of what I eat and I just started to add exercise in as of July 28th. Been having a problem with doing my exercises. This seems to be the hardert part of the program for me is to do my exercises.

Personal Information:
My name is Vanessa, and I'm from Ohio. I currently work full-time as a Business Opportunity Specialist/Administrative Officer/Information Technology Specialist. I have one daughter. four cats, one cat I'm babysitting, and one feral cat (who just crossed over the rainbow bridge). I like to crochet, knit, and do needle crafts. Feel free to e-mail me here at SparkPeople if you would like to talk.
