On May 2-3, I will be taking part in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer- Washington, DC and I could really use your support to help this cause!!

To donate to me online, please go to: http://tinyurl.com/lymarysantiago

Thank you very much for your help!

My name is Lymary, I live in Alexandria, VA. I am 5'8 and weight 162 pounds. My goal is to reach my happy weight of 146 and keep it without yo-yo dieting but doing it the right way changing my bad habits and having a healthy lifestyle.

My weaknesses are the big bad carbs like pasta loaded with sauces the creamier the better..love them and sweets, my favorite dessert is cheesecake at least there a few healthier variations of this one but OMG is hard..!!! but not impossible.

I like aerobics but I get bored fast that's why I have a collection of them in DVDs so I can have variety. But still there is a time when it gets too much routine for me. That's why I like so much this site, the forums, the inspirational stories and the latest news in fitness.

Personal Information:
I'm 31 years old and been married for two great months. I just moved from Puerto Rico and live now in Virginia. With a lot of time in my hands while I find a job decided to do something meaningful. That's why I joined the Avon Breast Cancer Walk , always want to participate but didn't because of the lack of time. Other reason is the alarming statistics of this disease one that has touch the lives of thousands including my beloved cousin Arlene and lots others. Even though I barely know anybody in the United States I'm set on achieving the fundraising goal.

I'm grateful to God for I've been blessed with a great loving family and a very understanding husband (and very patient, lucky me :) )

Since I can remember I always have been overweight. I'm 5'8, the heaviest I've been was 178 pounds back in 2004. By that time my self esteem was very low and everytime I felt sad would console myself snacking all the time without being hungry. I am not going to walk that road again.

Other Information:
Life is not measured by the breaths we take but by the moments that take our breaths away..-unknown

Do a good deed!
I need your support!
