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. :)

Jeanne, Great job on your loss so far!! That's very neat that you get to travel and live in different countries!!! Best of luck!
Thanks for the encouragement, Perfectvelvet! I'm already noticing a difference in just educating myself on fitness, and keeping myself accountable.

Hi, Jeanne, welcome to Spark! You've definitely picked the right place to come to help you reach those goals. Use the trackers and be diligent in your tracking; it really makes a difference! Good work on your weight loss so far! You've got this!
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. :)
