Hi, I'm Desirée. I'm 25 years old, I live with my wonderful boyfried, our dog Turbo and cat Reagan. I have a great life, I'm loved by my family & friends. The only thing that would make my life better is if I loved myself as much physically as I do mentally.
I've struggled with my weight my entire life. There are programs I've done well with & lost a substantial amount of weight but I have a hard time sticking with it. Now, at my heaviest, I want to be healthy, I want to love my body as much as I love my personality & I want to be able to do everything that I can't do now b/c of my weight. I am determined to reach my goal weight.
My most difficult addiction was soda but I have been soda free since late January 2011 and when that showed no results I quit caffeine in late March 2011. So far I've done great and I can't wait to see the results. I want to be the old me and then when I get to the old me I want to be even better! It's time for change and I'm so ready for it!

Fitness Minutes: 21,695

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose weight in order to love myself completely. I want to be healthy, eat healthy & exercise.

My Program:
Quit soda and caffeine (sucessful with that), eat healthier and exercise daily.

Personal Information:
I live with my boyfriend in our home with our dog Turbo (basset hound) and cat Reagan. I love my life, the only thing that would make it better is if I lose the weight & accomplish my goal. Once I reach my goal I know I'll be the happiest person on the planet and be able to accomplish anything!

Other Information:
My favorite show is Firefly and I wish it wasn't cancelled. I watch the entire series (including the movie Serenity) at least twice a year. V and The Walking Dead are some more favorites. I love books and yes, I love the Twilight books (the movies not so much). My boyfriend, dog, family and friends are my life. I could live without everything else as long as I have them.

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon back!!

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
