Vence means to conquer, to win, to overcome. I find this to be an appropriate name, as I am passionate about telling others how I conquered a weight issue, lost weight many years ago, and kept the pounds off. I am passionate about being healthy and doing what I can to feel and look my best.
I have often been asked what I do to stay thin, so I decided to put it in writing. I am no licensed dietician, nutritionist, body builder or fitness trainer; I am a normal person who tries to eat right, work out some and take care of what God has given me.
It is my desire to share with others how I lost weight and how I have kept it off. I hope to motivate enough people to take charge and say, “Enough is enough, and I am going to do what I have wanted to do for several years now.”
I love nature and I love people. I believe this world would be a much better place if we all treated each other with respect and did not envy others, but instead worked to better ourselves.
This work is part fictional and part non-fictional. I tell short stories about every-day issues many people face, such as defining self, learning to love ourselves, adapting to a new culture, learning a language, and dealing with some sort of bullying--among other things. I do so via fictional characters and in a fictional manner. These stories did happen. I chose to tell them in a fictional way by creating fictional characters and intertwining the various experiences. Every one of them is meant to teach, to inspire, to motivate, and/or to make one reflect about what, if anything, one can change or do differently. The only non-fictional stories are those describing how I overcame an eating disorder, lost weight, and kept it off for 20 years by making the right choices and choosing me over food.
I have a blog and welcome questions regarding my road to losing weight and keeping it off. I also provide resources that can help you get started on the road to learning about food and nutrition.
