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. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

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 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.

Thank you so much for the wonderful welcome to the Knitters team. I came to your page to say thanks, but stayed to read your introduction and profile. Wow, you have certainly done well with meeting your weight loss goals, and now I'm wondering why I didn't think to keep myself motivated with rewards for reaching goals along the way. I'm sure I would have found it easier when I was going through the occasional weak-willed patch if I'd been able to remind myself of the reward for reaching the next goal.

Your cats, and your daughter's, all look so happy and friendly towards each other. My 17 year old cat- Rani - has only ever befriended one other cat in the 16 years we've been together, but unfortunately he is no longer alive. Don't know what it was about him, but they were inseparable from the moment she brought him through the open front door and shared her dinner with him.

Take care, be happy, and enjoy working toward each new goal.
Chris.
