“Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued.

Whether you're going to spend it trying to look good and creating the illusion that you have power over people and circumstances, or whether you are going to taste it, enjoy it and find out the truth about who you are.”

-Anne Lamott

Things I need to work on:

Logging in food every day
Avoiding snacking when I get home from work
Developing an exercise program in addition to back stretches
Deep breathing, stress reduction
Continue taking charge of myself and what I need to do, and stop letting things "happen" to me.


Member Since: 1/5/2017

Fitness Minutes: 1,928

My Goals:
Have gone from 236 to 208. Would like to lose more. Used to weigh 138 - 145 when I was younger. I'm thinking 180 would be a reasonable goal for now.


My Program:
I went to a weight loss program through my local hospital's outreach. Helped me to jumpstart my diet. During this time, converted to a plant based diet. Love eating this way.




Personal Information:
I have a technical job with a science journal publisher
I love cooking and learning about nutrition
I try to eat healthy and almost entirely plant-based
I enjoy drawing, painting, writing and photography


Other Information:
I am an artist and I have a BFA in Graphic Design and Fine Arts
(and I need to spend more time being an artist and less time playing at being a chef)

I was told by my first grade teacher that I have quite a LUXURIOUS imagination, and
I try to maintain that and use it for good (and not against myself).

“Use your imagination not to scare yourself to death, but to inspire yourself to life.” ~ Adele Brookman

    I love looking at your DHs plate! Lol I am glad that you are not killing yourself with cooking anymore though. I hate to cook myself truthfully. Sometimes I get an idea to cook but mostly I do not. Lol
