My highest weight has been 194. I am trying to focus on health more than weight, but I'm working with Weight Watchers toward my goal of 156. I've been a vegetarian for a long time, and I love Northern Soul dancing. Love films, art, and music. I practice mindfulness often. I am looking for spark challenge buddies.

To lose 1-2 pounds per week - to learn Northern Soul Dancing - to travel everywhere one day.
