I am a 35 year young black woman. I have been battling with my weight for years. Recently I found out I have high blood pressure and knew this would be a wake up call for me. I am a very fun loving person who loves life. What I hate most now is shopping in Plus size sections and not being able to walk without breathing so hard. I have a vision of the woman I want to be and I am determined to get there. I also hate taking pictures. What happen to the woman who use to love her body and herself. I am on a mission to regain my self confidence!!!!!!!!!!

My Goals:
My short term goal is to loose 15 pounds by my birthday which is August 26

My Program:
I am keeping a journal of everything I eat and have cut my calories down to no more than 1300 a day. I am also now taking the steps at work. I work on the 6th floor so that is 18 steps between each floor and boy it is tough. I am also going to do at lease 30 minutes of cardio a day. I am also giving up the fast foods and as hard as it is I am going to have to give up Dr.Pepper

Personal Information:
I was born in Newport News, Va but have been living in Atlanta GA for 6 years. I am a mom of 3 teenagers, a wife, a full time employee at a financial company, and a under grad student majoring in business. I am a fun person who loves life and looking for friends and support to help me along the way toward reaching my goals.

Other Information:
I love to read books by black authors and any motivational books. I love comedy and chic movies and any Tyler Perry play or Movie. I love to travel and spend time with family.

    Thanks so much for the wonderful comment! I definitely needed it to pick me up today. And don't worry about that road trip, it's in the past. We stumble, but we get back up, so now all you have to do is decide how you're going to approach it next time!

    There is a lot to take in on this site, but it's okay, just take your time and you won't be overwhelmed. Besides all of this info for FREE, the support you will find here is unbelievable. Everyone can relate to the struggle, whether they're trying to lose 10 pounds or 100.
