I'm Danielle, a girl who is in a transition between different lives.

The first life was one of neglect, both from others and myself. It's a long story, but let's just say that the end result was one where I didn't care much about anything I was doing to my health. I was always chubby, even when I tried to lose weight, because I never had a good, healthy role model.

In college, I went through a long period of time where I let the weight balloon while I was working through some mental issues. Worse yet, it didn't bother me, because I didn't believe I was worth putting any work into. I was numb from pills, self loathing, and a lack of direction in my life. The people around me didn't help, and after a complete mental break-down, the dead weight was culled, making me realize I was stronger than I ever thought I was.

Afterward, things finally started to change for the better. I found direction in my life and graduated from college with a Bachelors (in useless, but I still earned it). Now I've been accepted into a Master's program starting in the spring for a subject I love: Library and Information Science. I really want to feel as though I'm starting fresh, since I'm going to a new school with new people and new experiences. I want to be off the blood pressure pills that my doc thrust upon me months ago, as well as lighten my medication load in general.

I want to be healthy, because I actually feel that I am worth it.

Before starting SparkPeople, I lost 25 lbs on my own. Still, I feel that the accountability that SP gives is guaranteed to keep me motivated to actually reach my goals. I hope that this time I manage to go further than I ever could have imagined.
