My name is Mei-Mei. I joined Spark People because I was looking for a support system to help me achieve my goals.

New decade, new life style, that's what I told myself this year.

Looking back the past three years, I had been very unhappy with myself. Not only of my body image, but also because my self-esteem was always very low. I let people walked all over me and I never stood up for myself. Because of me being an emotional eater, my weight slowly went from 115 pounds to a dramatic 160 pounds within two years.

My wake up call was when my boyfriend left me for another woman and I realized that my friends were terrible influence. I looked at myself, seeing myself in the mirror, I was extremely unhappy with my body, with my friends, and with my life. I told myself enough was enough. So, I moved out of the party house, found an apartment for myself, worked a job I loved, and started to transform my life. That was summer 2009.

So far, I lost 17 pounds, got a new group of friends, found a great man, and my self-esteem is at a new high. This is the first time in years that I actually feel happy waking up in the morning, and my energy level is much higher than it used to be.

I am moving away from Fargo back to my home country in a few months. I want to leave here without regrets and baggages. My goal is to let all the people who had ever doubted me, who had ever treated me wrong, who had ever cheated me see that I am so much better off without them and I am so much happier to live my life for myself.
