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.

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.

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 There, I bet you wondered where did Sharon go? I am here. decided to get back with the Spark LOL. I pray all is well wikth you and I hope to hear from you soon. Need some friends taking the same journey I have. Been going to Weight Watchers and did lose 10 lbs, but I miss SP and its ongoing interaction and what it offers. With SP I can have communicating friends that will share. Look forward to our next comment.

emoticon Vanessa! I hope that your mom is recovering well after her surgery. You both are in my thoughts and prayers. A healthy lifestyle is a long-term process! It is a journey of self-discovery and building a meaningful life. Give each goal 100% of commitment. For lasting results, acquire a lifetime commitment from replacing old habits and behaviors into making daily healthy choices and positive lifestyle changes! Learn all that you can to improve the quality of your health. Make your health a priority! Have a blessed weekend!
