Springing into Action Week 1

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Hi I’m Vannessa and I’m from Connecticut. I joined Spark People in 2009 because a friend at work encouraged me to join. I am very happy that I joined because my friend and I have been successful with losing weight.

I have lost 70 pounds currently and still have somewhat of a small goal to accomplish to get to my goal weight loss.

I have two beautiful daughters who are my joy and love very much. My older daughter graduated from college and has decided to move out on her own last week. I’m so happy but at the same time I’m sad because we are so close. My youngest is in 8th grade and is doing very well in school. She is involved in basketball and soccer. The season has finally slowed down so now I can refocus on getting my goals accomplished.

I love going to the gym and taking Zumba and Spin Classes. I also love Step Aerobics as well. I also have an Xbox and the Wii and will use those in between the gym workouts. I also love to dance so I dance a lot on my free time. It keeps me motivated. I also like roller skating. I used to skate as a kid and try to get there once a month if we can.

I’m looking forward to being a part of this great and exciting team.

    Vannessa you don't look old enough to have a daughter out of college! emoticon I love that you make time for yourself and are always heading off to Zumba or Spin. You helped me stay inspired during FFF and I'll be busy trying to keep up with you for Springing.
