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.

Here is something that I wrote...
After Laying down.... in my room...
Right before I was about to go for a Work out...

What is Better…
Sleeping in or Working out…

What is Better…
Eating unhealthy or Eating Healthy…

Which is better…
Going for a walk outside or staying inside on a nice day…

Which is better…
A Grill Chicken Salad or a Greasy Cheese Burger…

Which is better…
A Glass of Water or any kind of soda…

What is better…
Feeling uncomfortable or feeling satisfied after eating a meal…

Which makes more sense...
Spending money on healthy items that will make you ever long lasting happy… or keep spend and spending.. and spending and never getting anywhere.. that you Dream about….
