I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

To have a friend, be a friend.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

Joined SparkPeople and have been keeping track everyday of what I eat and I just started to add exercise in as of July 28th. Been having a problem with doing my exercises. This seems to be the hardert part of the program for me is to do my exercises.

Personal Information:
My name is Vanessa, and I'm from Ohio. I currently work full-time as a Business Opportunity Specialist/Administrative Officer/Information Technology Specialist. I have one daughter. four cats, one cat I'm babysitting, and one feral cat (who just crossed over the rainbow bridge). I like to crochet, knit, and do needle crafts. Feel free to e-mail me here at SparkPeople if you would like to talk.

Hi Vanessa, I read your page and I have to say emoticon emoticon on your weight loss.

Don't worry about gaining a pound here or there, just make sure you never give up, and do not wait to long to get back into your program if you slip, but do not be hard on yourself, treat yourself like you are your own best friend, tell yourself what you would tell a good friend when you are feeling down about something.

by the looks of things, you are well on your way to making it happen, and not just to get to your goal weight, but to make this a life time commitment.

remember, "you are not a victim" you can do this! It is not easy for any of us, we just have to keep going and never give up!

Thanks for the comment on the pound loss - unfortunately it's the one I gained the other day and not a new one emoticon

Have a great week!
