Personal Information:
I've never struggled with my weight, but because of that I've also never been that careful with what I ate. When my dr told me my cholesterol was a bit high, it was a wake up call to eat intentionally. I was so surprised when I lost weight, gained strength and endurance, started loving fruits and veggies, and feel so amazing with the endorphins of working out that I barely drink coffee anymore. :o) I know, you hate me by now, but I'm just happy to enjoy being and playing outside and finding new ways to eat more healthily. I love all the inspiration and tips on SparkPeople!!

Also I'm an INTJ on the Meyers-Briggs personality types that I'm addicted to. :o)

Other Information:
When I was growing up as a nerd I thought that physical fitness was a waste of time when I had so much for my brain to learn. Now as a physicist, I realize that my brain and body work well together! My brain gives me something to do while training, and my body helps my brain work better after working out. :)

Hey MadDancer, thanks!! :) I know I wish people realized this more! I've read good stuff about the subject in Michael Pollan's books...also the movie King Corn is an interesting commentary on our government's corn subsidy! :p

Hope you are having a great day!

I was just reading your post in the "soda tax" poll. Thanks for putting that out there - I couldn't have said it better myself! I wish there were more people who actually thought about that way!
