I'm Danielle and I live in Green Bay, WI. I've been with sparkpeople since October 2010 and love this community and all the inspiration everyone brings.

I married my awesome man on March 5th, 2016, it was an incredible day filled with love!

I am beginning a new weight loss journey as this new chapter of my life begins. My goal is to count calories and get into a normal weight range for my BMI- 140lbs. I've been overweight/ obese my whole life and I am ready to create a healthy lifestyle that my family and I can follow for years to come!

I love working out- running is my favorite. I've had issues with bones and asthma in recent years so it's been difficult to get to the top of my game. But im not going to let it stop me! Recently hiking has become the new love of my fitness life. It's not as intense as running, but the interval aspect of climbing hills is great!

Eventually I want to get into the strong lifts/strong curves program and really give my muscles some TLC! I want to feel strong, invincible and comfortable doing any manner of things wiht my body.

I want to FEEL sexy and proud, strong and confident. I know that as I reduce my size and increase my fitness it will happen. It had before.

I am a strong person, I have good self-esteem, confidence and motivation. I will control my body and nutrition and transform my outside to feel as great as the inside of me does.

I want to beat my 5K PR of 33:01.

I want to keep my life as awesome as it has been. Losing weight helped me find who I am and the life I want to live. It also found me a great man in the process ;)

My Program:
I've bounced between Weight Watchers and My Fitness Pal for several years. I want to really make My Fitness Pal work for me.

We are house hunting next year (2017) and I would like to be there before we buy one.

Personal Information:
Hi hi! Im Danielle! I'm 30, from Green Bay, WI. My job is a corporate one where I mostly sit or run around talking to people.

I actually like going to the gym! My gym is cheap, has lots of machines, classes and cool people. My favorite workout is running- I love the feeling I get after accomplishing a great run.

I like to go out, go to movies, discover new music and read. The normal 20-something hobbies! Though I am now 30... ugh!!

    Hey! Yeah, I knew my comment would make some people angry. I definitely agree with you that the word "fatties" should NOT have been used. I think everybody is going to have a different take on the article depending on their own background and experiences. I definitely don't mean to upset anybody, we're all in the same boat here! I get tired of hearing things like "looks don't matter" because in all reality they do. Everybody has preferences for looks (hair color, eye color, face shape, body type, style of dress, etc.) and what's "attractive" varies greatly from person to person. Growing up I had an extremely hard time separating my self worth from my self image. I didn't think I was worth more than I looked on the outside. Somewhere along the way that changed. I realized that I didn't have to be defined by the outside. So I feel like I can say "no, I don't find a 400 pound man attractive" and know that doesn't mean I don't think he's a good person or worthy of love. A lot of people have a hard time separating the two and I think that's where the issue is. anyway, sorry for all the rambling. Mostly I just wanted to stop by and say don't hate me! hahaha
