I am on a journey to be a better me and I believe that joining a community will help. I am already on a weight loss program set by my doctor but the support could be really helpful.

PHENOMENAL WOMAN - by Maya Angelou
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But when I start to tell them
They think I'm telling lies.
I say,
It's in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman

Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing of my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them,
They say they still can't see.
I say
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Now you understand
Just why my head's not bowed.
I don't shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It's in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
The palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose 100 - 150lbs.

I need to intake 2700 calories with 25% of that being protein until I lose 30lbs and get tested again.

Personal Information:
My first blog is very long and describes me a bit.

I'm 29yrs old and live in Ontario, Canada. I have always been overweight.

Thanks to the wonderful matriarchs in my family, I am confident, sociable, respectful, grateful and friendly.

I look forward to meeting many friends here.
