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.

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.

Thank you very much for the welcome message! I just read through your weight loss progress and looked at your pictures, and I'm so impressed by your willpower and strength! Was your reward cruise the one you took in Alaska? How fun! Thanks for the inspiration! I look forward to seeing your continued success!
