My name is Amy and I am 25 years old. I have been heavy most of my life, and am TIRED of it. I want to lose weight and get healthy and happy. I recently moved to Ottawa, Canada and have not made any friends here and am feeling alone in my journey. I want to get serious about my weight and hope this is going to be a great support.
I am a nanny for 15 month old twins, which is great. I have to be on my toes a lot and be active, so that's a bonus, but I work in a house for a woman with a sweet tooth, so I am finding myself wanting sweets more than ever. I am really trying to be strong willed, but am finding it hard. I am hoping that when I feel the urge for sweets, I can start making better choices.

My Goals:
I have many short and long term goals. For starters, I want to get better about drinking my 8 glasses of water a day. I also want to get to the gym 3 times a week. My ultimate goal is to lose about 50-75 pounds. But I will settle for a number that starts with 1.

My Program:
I have recently changed parts of my diet to include a lot more fiber. And that is making me feel really great. I also joined the gym last week (it is a circuit program) and want to go there three times a week. I also do a 5km walk every friday with the gym (and the double stroller) which is a really good workout.

I also just got a new bike and an going to ride that as often as possible and (hopefully) get good enough that I can ride it to work.

    Hi Amy,
    I came across your page through the Ottawa team. I've only lived in Ottawa for a couple of years and I've found it tough to meet people too. It's a great city though especially if you like being outdoors, biking and what not. I've added you as a friend on my spark page so I hope you stop by and say hi.
