Hey I'm Vicki. I'm 27 years old and I'm from the land of the long white cloud (New Zealand). I'm currently living in Australia in order to do my PhD. I have been overweight all my life, at my heaviest I was 106 kg (obese!!). I'm aiming for 75 kgs. I joined sparkpeople a few years ago and lost alot of weight - 28 kgs. I'm back again as i've gained a few kgs over winter and need to kick it to the kerb!

My weight has had a huge impact on my life - it's prevented me from living it. Losing as much weight as I have has been the best thing I could ever have done for myself. I'm much more confident, stronger, happier, and healthier. Now it's time to get those last few kgs off and to cement a way of living that will enable me to be the happiest and healthiest I can be for as long as possible! I don't want to miss out on life!

A workout is 25% PERSPIRATION and 75% DETERMINATION. Stated another way, it is one part physical exertion and three parts SELF-DISCIPLINE. Doing it is easy once you get started. A workout makes you better today than you were yesterday. It strengthens the body, relaxes the mind and toughens the spirit. When you work out regularly, your problems diminish and your CONFIDENCE grows. A workout is a personal triumph over laziness and procrastination. It is the badge of a WINNER, the mark of an ORGANIZED, GOAL-ORIENTED person who has taken charge of his or her destiny. A workout is a wise use of time and an INVESTMENT in excellence. It is a way of preparing for life's challenges and proving to yourself that you have what it takes to do what is necessary. A workout is a key that helps unlock the door to OPPORTUNITY and SUCCESS. Hidden within each of us is an extraordinary force. Physical and mental fitness are the triggers that can release it. A workout is a form of REBIRTH. When you finish a good workout, you don't simply feel better... YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF!
