I'm 48 and live with my husband, my beautiful daughter, Marissa, and my 2 wonderful babies, Teddy, my Yorkie; and Pepper, my Miniature Schnauzer.

I've had some really difficult hurdles in my life. My first husband died when I was 23 and then when my daughter was 3, I discovered she was disabled. As a result, I've been battling depression, anger, mood swings, etc., for a very long time and that includes weight issues! When all of this happened, I lost my will to live and I lost my faith.

Then, 12 years ago, I met my husband, a wonderful, caring man and I remarried, which I never thought I wanted to do. Now, I think it's time to allow myself to heal, accept my life - with all of its ups & downs - and become healthy again - physically, mentally and emotionally.

I've been yo-yo dieting off & on most of my adult life and I want this to be the last time! I am determined to lose this weight, get healthy and become whole again, not just for me, but for my family!

I've spent too many years suffering from a lack of self-esteem and self-confidence. I'm tired of being depressed, angry and overweight.

This time....I'm not giving up until I accomplish what I want. Hopefully, with a little determination, a lot of faith and ALOT of help from my Spark Friends.....THIS TIME I'M DOING IT!!


Member Since: 4/28/2008

Fitness Minutes: 30,000

My Goals:
To become whole again. To be the healthiest that I can be - physically, mentally, emotionally & spiritually.

To STOP being so negative....I'm working on it!!

To love myself, regain my confidence & self-esteem....to be happy so that I can make my family & friends happy! Unless I love myself and I'm happy with who I am, I can't love anyone else or make anyone else happy...it all starts with me!

To lose the weight once and for all & never gain it back!!


My Program:
I am trying to give up all the "junk" food that I love and I am eating healthier. I've eliminated most processed & refined foods. I'm eating more veggies, fruits, lean meats and "good" carbs.

I am exercising more - I don't like going to a gym, but I am walking with my husband, using my stationary bike and I just recently purchased a Wii Fit, which I love! I plan to work out at least 5x/week, including aerobics, yoga & strength training.



Personal Information:
My name is Vilma, I am 48 years old and I live in Florida with my loving and supportive husband of 10 years, my daughter and our two dogs - Pepper & Teddy. I am a Paralegal by profession.


Other Information:
I LOVE.....
Music - especially jazz and classical - I listen to it all the time - at home, work & in my car and I love to dance!

To curl up on the sofa with my husband and watch movies on TV & eat popcorn. We also love drinking red wine - Cabernet & Merlot are my favorites.

SHOPPING!!! My favorite things to buy are "purses & shoes" I'm addicted!!

Photography - I'm an amateur photographer and I love taking pictures of my dogs & nature scenes!

DISLIKES:
Cooking (UGH!!) - My Hubby does the cooking - he loves it & he's good at it! I am so NOT domestic...

My Pet Peeve: People who lie and are hyprocrites!!
