I've been struggling with my weight for most of my life. I've tried just about every diet out there. I'd lose some weight, then stop dieting and go back to my old eating habits and gain the little bit that I lost, plus more back. I'm determined this time to lose it and keep it off for good. I was the typical "yo-yo" dieter. Spark People and Weight Watchers have been the biggest help to me. Due to financial probs, I had to quit WW but I still have my SP. And I'm hoping this site helps me reach my goals.

My Goals:
To get to my goal weight of 140lbs and never gain it back! I wanna be a "loser" for life. LOL

Drink More water and exercise at least 30 minutes a day

My Program:
Low Sodium, eating more fruits and veggies and limiting processed foods.

Personal Information:
My name is Melissa. I'm a 44 year old single mom of two boys. I have been legally separated for 6 years from someone who was verbally/emotionally abusive and controlling. Most of my marriage was miserable. I then went on to be with someone who was worse than my ex husband. SERIOUSLY! That's over now too and I have moved on and I'm happy with my overall life now. Except for my weight. Striving everyday to change that.

I am currently a Certified Nursing Assistant and work for a rehabilitation facility called Genesis.

I'm funny, easy going, sincere, friendly, and try to live my life to its fullest. Life is too short to be anything but happy. :)

Other Information:
I'm a HUGE movie buff. One of my favorite movies of all time is, Breakfast At Tiffanys. I just LOVE Audrey Hepburn. I also like all kinds of music ranging from Classical, Country, Reggae, Hip Hop, and of course Rock/Pop. :) More of my hobbies are reading, cooking, jewelry making, photography, the outdoors, most recently I've gotten into the Planning community and invested in the Erin Condren planner AND The Mambi Happy Planner. I LOVE decorating them. Kind of like a scrapbook. I also enjoy spending time with family. Hoping to make some life long friends on this site.
