My two furry monsters, Shiro and Neko.




Taken in 2001, this weight is what I would like to get back to.

My name is Annie, I'm a 40-year-old mom of two teenagers and I'm looking for a place where I can just laugh, cry, vent and share with others during my journey to finally finding peace with myself.

I found my way to sparkpeople.com after picking up People's annual "How They Did It: Half Their Size" issue; I've picked up this issue every year and always say, "This year, I will get motivated" only to forget the magazine in a drawer or under a pile of newspapers. However, I was reading how one woman utilized sparkpeople.com in her weight loss journey and decided that I would check out the site when the time dictated. That time was today.

I stepped on my wiifit board and was surprised to hear "OH! It appears the weight limit has been exceedeed.....blahblahblah". I was shocked. I know I have gained a lot of weight but never expected a video game to reject me. After some tears I picked up the People magazine and read the article again. That is what brought me here.

I'm not the typical mom - I love loud, angsty music and tattoos (I have three of them) but I have an awesome sense of humor and I'm determined to make this work!

My Goals:
I would like to be able to plan healthy meals and try to exercise every day.


My Program:
I am currently just taking baby steps....it's a start!



My ultimate goal is to join the Y for swim aerobics and maybe even a fitness class.



Personal Information:
I am 40-years-old and have a husband, a son (19) a daughter (16) and two unruly but lovable cats.



I have been battling depression for many years but I have finally found a good doctor. I take Cipralex, Wellbutrin and Seraquel for my symptoms and sometimes feel extremely tired because of them. However, I will not let them derail my efforts!



I currently live in the Niagara Region of Ontario, but hopefully will some day be able to move to sunny California!


Other Information:
I love movies (the scarier, the better), loud music (LINKIN PARK!), reading (Anne Rice etc.) and tooling around on my computer (I'm a WoW nerd!)

    Remember to be gentle with yourself - small steps are what make a journey, take one small step to love yourself today, and you are still on that journey emoticon emoticon emoticon
