Hi, my name is Angela, my nick name is Queen, that's what everybody likes to call me. I am 28 years old, and I have been up and down on the scales all my life. For some reason a light bulb went off in my head in November of 2008. I realized I have to get real about this, not just my weight, but my hole take on life.
I was living in my fantasy land, I was thinking that the way I was living was OK, oh I was so wrong. I always have an excuse for everything, even my weight. Hello! not going to work anymore. So, I sat down and got out a piece of paper and wrote down what I had to do to change my life. I wanted to be HAPPY . I could not believe for the first time in my life. I was trying to figure out what I needed to make me happy. I have three kids and a boyfriend, I was always worrying about them and what I had to do to make them happy. I even put other people before me. But I knew that all had to come to a stop. If I was going to enjoy life to its fullest. I knew I had to change!
So, I got me a doctor that only deals in weight loss. I never went to the doctor unless I had to, but now I was seeing a weight loss doctor and every week. It was such a big help, knowing that I had to go get weighed every week, plus I got a blood test done and he told me that if I didn't take the weight off, I wasn't it going to be around much longer. WAKE UP CALL!!!! What was I thinking... not getting this done along time ago. Thank God I went when I did.
I was so happy that things were going along good, but I knew I had to change so much more then just getting the pounds off. So I start seeing a head doctor to help me deal with the emotional part of it. I knew if I wanted to achieve a healthier life style, I had to fix what was going on in my head too. That was really the hard for me. But it had to be done!
I also knew I had to let my family and the people I love the most that I was about to change. That I was not going to let anything hold me back. I knew a head of time that people where going to be mad at me, because I was such a people pleaser and I was going to start putting myself first. That's hard for me, to put myself in front of my children and my man. I knew that if I didn't that I would not be around for them later in life. That's life!
It not been easy for the first month, my doctor even asked me if I wanted to wait until after New Year's to start my diet, I said NO. He told me.... you know you are doing this right before Christmas, and I told him that if I can't hold myself and do the right thing at Christmas, then I not going to be able to do this at all. In the first, this is the first time in along time I have felt so strong about anything. Some of my goals are so big and then others are so small. I always look straight ahead on the prize and the prize for me is not to be a size 0 or even 10. The prize for me is that I live my life to the fullest, not letting anything keep me back and knowing at the end that I live a healthy and happy LIFE.

My Goals:
My goals are to wake up and get healthy. Think about what I'm eating and where it came from. To always put exercise before my house cleaning. If the house doesn't get clean. it doesn't matter, atlease I exercised. Find ways to do stuff with the kids. Spend time out side with them and keep moving. Don't let other people get in my way. Stop worrying what they say behind my back, they are going to say it no matter what. My anger. Stop getting so pissed off at everything and everyone. I need to start cooling it down. Life is to short to be pissed off about the dumbest stuff. If things didn't get done then it OK. Atleast I took care of myself. I want to help change someone's life. If I can help someone move foward and help them get over the hump, then I have really achieved a new high sense of being.

My Program:
Eat green, red, yellow, blue, purple, and every color I can. Don't eat any thing that comes out a box. Ask myself did that come off a tree, plant, or did it come from the ground. Fat? What's that? I don't have no time for that. Workout, workout, workout. If I can't afford then gym, then I will bring the GYM home to me. Keep my legs moving and my arms a swinging.

Personal Information:
I am 28 years old. I grew up here in Tampa Fl. I have three kids. Two 11 year old boys, I have one beautiful little 7 year old girl. I have one of the best boyfriends. We have been together for 3 years, he loves every pound and wishes it to stay. I am a stay at home MOM, but I wish I could find a job. I love playing on my computer and my Xbox360. I am a Gears of War Freak. Believe it or not, I enjoy the summer time. I love the beach and everything about it. I enjoy the Florida sun so much.

Other Information:
I am hoping that I can find long lasting friendship and also hoping that I will make a difference in someone life. If you need a ear or someone to type to... I am here. I am so glad that I am not alone. NONE of us are alone.
