I say to myself - "Girl, you are amazing just the way you are!" I am but do not always feel this way with so much weight to lose. My weight loss journey will be a hard journey but am willing to make it work with baby steps.
I am happy positive person but want to be a little bit healthier & much thinner for this petite body that I have.

My Program:
Started Weight watchers online - 1/2016- success of 20 pounds lost in 2016. Not successful on ww freestyle so went back to sparkpeople. Like the food tracking - calories & nutritional values a lot better.

Make very healthy eating as a lifestyle choice.

Do portion control & write down all the food I eat.

Love to take pictures & love my digital camera got back in Sept. 2010. It was a must since my film camera didn't work anymore.

    Oh what joy it is
    to have friends like you
    For giving me strength
    the way you do

    For lifting me up
    when I'm feeling down
    And putting a smile on my face
    when I'm wearing a frown

    Thanks for being there
    and helping me grow
    Your friendship means a lot
    this I'd like you to know
