"We are all travellers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend," Robert Louis Stevenson

Dearly beloved,

We are gathered here today to witness the weight gain of our lovely blog friend, Vaia.

It is with a heavy heart that she even writes this blog. However, it is with a gentle spirit that she continues to battle on with her journey.

She knows that dedicating herself to this task is difficult yet she forges on.

Vaia has written her own vows which she shall now share...

I promise to love myself and value the body that has served me so well for so many years.

I promise to be true to the choices I make in life.

I will eat well and exercise regularly.

I will remember that the 5th yummy frothy slushy drink is not mandatory.

Her devotion to losing weight will remain steadfast.

Through the power of blog land and the wonderful people and journeys she reads about and learns from, she is forever grateful.

If anyone here can think of a reason of why she should just quit her battle, speak now or forever hold your peace.
