Don't think diet- think just do it!

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to visit my page.

I am an opera singer who loves great food and fine wine but not the extra pounds that I've been basically ignoring.

My ultimate goal: To lose this excess weight in a healthy way and keep it off for good- WITHOUT giving up the things I love, like meatballs & vino!

Since being married, I have gained a good 15 pounds... depends on the day, if you know what I mean. I call it my "happily ever after ...
Hi there, thanks for taking the time to visit my page.

I am an opera singer who loves great food and fine wine but not the extra pounds that I've been basically ignoring.

My ultimate goal: To lose this excess weight in a healthy way and keep it off for good- WITHOUT giving up the things I love, like meatballs & vino!

Since being married, I have gained a good 15 pounds... depends on the day, if you know what I mean. I call it my "happily ever after weight." I want to take off what I've gained and stop any more from creeping on.

I was a competitive cheerleader once upon a time and have traded the hours spent at those practices for hours devoted to being the best professional singer and entertainer I can be. I am trying to learn to "fit it all in", complete with a teaching studio and another part time job.

I have seen a real change in my stamina with these extra pounds. I am very active on stage and I need to look the part as much as sing it. Getting healthy is important to every aspect of my life.

I have been back and forth using Sparkpeople, but most recently with the goal to loose my "happily ever after pounds" by my 5 year wedding anniversary two summers ago. I didn't lose as much as I wanted by the big day, but I was almost there! So close... but I still was thinking diet and not lifestyle. And since then, I haven't really even thought once about it. Except for when my clothes don't fit... I do realize now that once I started losing, I started thinking I could do it totally on my own, but that has been my downfall.

So, here we ago. Again. I want to be slow and steady with this and really create a lifelong change for better health. I want to make healthy habits an every day part of life. Starting right now. Don't think diet... think just do it!!!!

I am looking for that balance of enjoying food without the guilt of 'watching what I eat'. Life is too short. I want to life it to the fullest every way I can. I want to spend my minutes with happy thoughts, not, 'how long do I have to work out to get rid of that?'.

My biggest challenge is always excercise. I don't even remember the girl who ran laps and did flips. She is there somewhere. I'm going to find her again!

Feel free to drop me a line. I love to meet new people. We're all in this together!!!!

Personal Information:
I am originally from NY but currently call NC home.

I am married to a wonderful man who also happens to be an opera singer. He loves to cook and eat as much as I do. We are quite a pair! We are fortunate enough to perform together often, so we get to travel and rehearse and really understand what it is to live our crazy lives.

We were married 8 years this past summer. We're both trying to revamp our health and fitness and shed the 'happily ever after weight' that we have collectively gained.


Other Information:
Give opera a chance! Most people find that once they see one live, they really like it!

I am addicted to reading fashion magazines and cook books.

I Google anything and everything.

I can spend hours at CVS and not buy one thing.
