I am really not a fan of my doctor. She wants me to lose weight and expects me to, but doesn't actually give me any of the resource or support that I need to succeed. I feel like she is judging me and I don't feel comfortable talking to her. ... Read more
Fitness Goals
Monday, February 11, 2013     

It has taken about a year, but I have slowly worked on eating better. In June 2012 I lost ten pounds and I was able to keep it off the whole rest of the year! I know that this is because I have learned to eat better. It is not always perfect,... Read more
My big goal

Starting again
Friday, December 07, 2012     

At the beginning of 2008, I was so unhappy. I weighed 220 lbs and I hated myself. I didn't like looking in the mirror, or having pictures taken of me. I thought that if only I could lose weight, I would be happy again. After months of thinki... Read more
Here I am
Monday, December 15, 2008     

Well, things are moving much more slowly now. I have been so busy working full-time that I have barely been on SparkPeople. I can use the internet at work, but we are always so busy. Maybe that is an excuse, maybe I could try to make the time... Read more
