I am incredibly motivated to lose weight so that I can enjoy my life with my beautiful daughter Ellinor, awesome husband Ryan and clever cat Mocha!
I'm currently a stay at home mom interested in health via fitness and nutrition. I know what it's like to not be healthy and I never want to take my health for granted again!

I'm currently a stay at home mom interested in health via fitness and nutrition. I know what it's like to not be healthy and I never want to take my health for granted again!
We live in Toronto. We rent but I'm trying to convince Ryan that we should move to the boonies and buy something.
I LOVE walking: I hope to make it jogging and then eventually running! We have a great Boardwalk here and the Beaches area is a gorgeous place to walk for hours.
I'm taking an online course on how to Teach English as a second language so that I can pursue that as a job once Ellinor is a bit older.
I was playing a lot of online poker, but now that I've found Bejeweled and SimCity, I'm saving my 10 bux a month! Hahah!
I used to be quite artsy. I still love making art but I haven't painted anything except the mural in Ellinor's room in a long time!(Butterflies and flowers) I can't wait to make art with Ellie once she's a little older.
I love music: making it, dancing to it and listening to it. I used to be a lot more punk rock, but I've really mellowed lately. I'm just not as angry anymore: which I think is a good thing!
I also like watching a lot of youtube videos since we don't have cable anymore! I have decided to research Obesity as the disease it is and learn all I can about it. This is really helping me!
Helpful stuff includes:
HBO series: The weight of the Nation
BBC series: Supersize vs. Superskinny
BBC documentaries: Why thin people are not fat, the truth about fat, the truth about exersice
the skinny on obesity series
etc!!
I'm finding it helpful to go beyond the physical and I'm looking into things that more spiritual/new age based like the Secret and also this movie which I highly recommend!
What the bleep do we know?
Really gets me thinking about quantum physics and possibilities! I love it!

short term GOALS:
July 23/12: 259 lbs
Aug 26/12: goal: 254 - DONE! AUG 26/12 whooo hooo!
Sept 30/12: goal: 249
Oct 28/12: goal 245 - which would mean my BMI would be under 40!

My Goals:
first, most urgent things: GET MY BMI UNDER 40!
TREAT MY C. DIFF AND ANY RELATED HEALTH ISSUES!
Long term goals are:
I want to be a healthy BMI
I aim to lose 100+ pounds (so 160 or less!)
Be the best mom I can be!
Enjoy things like swimming, bike riding, scuba/snorkling...
Get fit enough to try new things like rock climbing, zip linging and surfing!
I am interested in one day becoming a runner... for now: I will become a really great walker.
I would also like to take an online TEFL course and/or figure out other ways to generate income from home.
I would also like to do small things around our house to make things nicer (like paint or put up shelves, etc)
:)


My Program:
Stay within my calorie range.
Avoid Gluten more...
eat more protein.
move more.
drink 8 glasses of water/day.
Manage thyroid and iron levels.
attend online school.
take really great care of Ellinor



Personal Information:
Married to/in love with an awesome guy: Ryan. We have a beautiful daughter: Ellinor and our cat: Mocha.
Interested in getting healthier, swimming, travelling, poker, making music and art, bike riding and learning and trying new things!
I find quantum physics and New Age stuff facinating! I would describe myself as non-practicing Pagan.
I have a BFA and in the past, I have studied at digital media studios as well as the Institute of Holistic Nutrition.
I was vegan for 7 years, but it wasn't right for my body :(
Just like most people on this site, I'm sure: I have read A LOT of books on nutrition and weight loss. there's lots of ideas out there, but now, i've changed my focus: I'm looking inward and finding what works for me.

if you like aggressive, female-fueled punk-metal-rock (that's me singing most of the songs and playing one of the two guitars!)
Married to Ryan! Sept. 27/08!!!
