So ... I'm really trying to make an effort at a lifestyle change. I finally accepted that "crash diets" are so named for a reason. I can't put my body through this rollercoaster any more! I really believe in myself, and I know that I deserve internal and external happiness, as we all do. No more self-sabotage. No more excuses. No more unreasonable expectations. I will mess up. I am not perfect. It's all a part of the journey -- no reason to be discouraged. You may take two steps forward, and one step back, but you're still coming out ahead.

My Goals:
It only takes 30 days to form a habit. My goal is to form healthy, lifelong habits in my eating and the manner in which I approach eating.


My Program:
I'm currently going it solo, since my At Work Weight Watchers series got canceled due to low enrollment for the current session... I'm hoping that changes in March...



Personal Information:
My name is Vanessa. I'm from the South Side of Chicago (not necessarily a Sox fan... I'm more like a fair-weather fan ;-). I work a 9-5 job full-time and am a full-time student. I tend to use this as an excuse to not exercise... =( HOWEVER, I am motivated and am optimistic in my outlook!

SW: ~200
CW: ~165
GW: 153 (for now)
