Hi! My name is Jenn. I'm 41 and live in Florida. I have been overweight all my life and have tried about every fad diet you can think of. I've realized with the help of SparkPeople that "dieting" was my problem.

I am a work in progress. I am in no hurry. I have adopted a healthier lifestyle. I am more conscious of what I put in my mouth. I am beginning to understand this whole approach to weight lose and exercise. I feel pretty comfortable with the knowledge I've gained as far as nutrition and portion control. I'm still struggling with exercise, but I'm trying to make a habit of it. It's frustrating to me that I know what to do to lose weight, but I sometimes lack the motivation to do it.

I will do this, I will lose this weight and maintain. If it takes 6 mos, a year or two, I WILL DO IT THIS TIME!

"It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses." -- Dr. Oz & Dr. Roizen- "You on A Diet"

~If you continually take detours from your planned route, you'll never reach your destination~

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. - Emerson

My Goals:
-to lose 2 lbs. a week

-to be able to get off Diabetes and Blood Pressure Meds. * off 1 Diabetes med as off 4/10/09!!!!!*

-to be able to put a bathing suit on and go to the beach

My Program:
I don't really want to focus on "dieting". From past experience that does not work for me. Instead I will eat healthy, watch my portions and ban junk food. I will not give up if I fall off the wagon, I'll simply dust myself off and climb back on!!

Personal Information:
I live in Palm Beach, Florida, but was born and raised in North Carolina, which will always be my home.
I have one 16 year old daughter who I love more than life itself. God has blessed me and I'm extremely Thankful.
