Thanks AMEZ74! Living abroad is bittersweet for me; I love the adventure but really miss family and the comforts of home. Gonna use this opportunity to form some good habits to carry back to the States when I move back home. :)

Thanks for the encouragement, Perfectvelvet! I'm already noticing a difference in just educating myself on fitness, and keeping myself accountable.

Hi Spark People!

My name's Jeanne and I'm currently working at a university in Seoul, South Korea. I'm originally from Missouri, USA, and love traveling back home 1-2 a year to see family and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. With this new job abroad, I am hoping it is the perfect chance to shed the pounds I have gained through college, and working in the States. I have worked in Japan before, but instead of losing weight there my weight stagnated, and upon returning to the US I got up to my highest weight ever. It was such a downer!

Since moving to Korea in March I have lost 10 pounds just from taking public transit and eating more Korean food, which includes a lot of veggies and meat. Hopefully with the help of Spark People I'll be able to get on my way to losing 50 more pounds. :)
