Hi :o) My name is Valerie, and I'm DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL! I lost 40 pounds last year and thought I was on my way all the way down. I felt soooo goooood! Then we went away on a 2 week holiday to an all inclusive resort and I ate and drank everything I wanted to. When we came back I just couldn't seem to get back with the plan and now I'm right back where I started and feeling awful again.
I want those good feelings back, the energy that I had, and the feeling that I actually wanted to get dressed and go out somewhere because I could fit into some nice clothes. That feeling good about yourself feeling!
My problem is I'm a perfectionist. I have to have everything perfect, and I can do it for a while, but then something gets in the way and I can't be perfect, and I give up. I need to learn to pick myself up and keep going, not fall apart and go back to doing everything wrong!
SO.... I start again tomorrow.. new year, same plan! NO MORE FAT GIRL!

My Goals:
My biggest goal is to lose pounds!
Smaller goals are drinking 8 glasses of water per day, sleeping at least 7 hours per night, not eating in the evening, and eating more fruits and veggies.

My Program:
I'm trying to eat healthier and stay within the eating guidlines that Sparks suggests.
I work out every day that I can, alternating cardio and strength training. My husband and I are working together at working out and eating healthier. We have a home gym for strength training and some cardio equipment as well. I also have a young puppy that loves to go for walks!
