Hi I am Vana and I have had weight problems most of my life, First I was too thin and then I became ill and have gone the other way. I did weight watchers about 20 years ago and learned a lot of great information and tricks but with the illness I have and the possibility of having to take certain meds I gained it back and have been unsuccessful in finding the drive to get it off again.

Hi I am Vana and I have had weight problems most of my life, First I was too thin and then I became ill and have gone the other way. I did weight watchers about 20 years ago and learned a lot of great information and tricks but with the illness I have and the possibility of having to take certain meds I gained it back and have been unsuccessful in finding the drive to get it off again. Now with a aortic condition I find that I MUST get it off. So I am here and working with my friends from around the world to get on track and stay there. I have to be fit for life or I wont have much of one for very long.
This year is the beginning of the rest of my life and I need to get in better shape and lose weight. I want to live long enough to truly enjoy my grand children.
I have changed my eating habits by adding more fresh fruits and vegetables, eating less starchy foods, cutting my carbs way back and not eating all the processed foods that are so convenient. Also am looking to start doing some dancing to help me burn the calories.
I am from the Beautiful Pacific Northwest of the United States.
I am older then I look but still young at heart!!
I am a hopeless Romantic and a star gazer!!

I didn't get the job...but it turned out for the best, as I am now taking care of my dad and step-mom. My dad went into the hospital on Monday with CHF, and my daughter and I are taking care of my step-mom who has dementia, and isn't doing well at all. I am managing to keep my calorie count on track, but not able to exercise. Hopefully my dad will be out soon and I can get back on schedule. Hope you get great news on Sept. 6th!
Hey Vana...hope you get the job you are trying for! I found out yesterday that I didn't get the one I wanted, but it just leaves me more open for my youngest daughter's senior year of high school :) Hope your weekend is a great one!
Hi Vana, I just started back on SP and saw the comment you had left me on my page. Sorry, I wasn't ignoring you, I just hadn't been on SP in a long time. I was diagnosed with diabetes and SP is the best way for me to keep track of what I'm eating. So here I am, to stay...lol! It is nice to know that there is someone who also lives in beautiful Skagit County! Definitely one of the most beautiful places on earth! I will be on SP daily from now on, so message me anytime!
