I've never gotten above 210 lbs, which I was ok with, but I checked the scale this year and holy monkeys! I gained a lot of weight after being with my boyfriend for a while, and it's time to scale that back.

More about me (because it's kind of gross when people are only about their diet stuff) : I was an English major and I LOVE to write. I maintain a political/current events blog at OnceYouGoLeft.org. I looove animals. Jon and I have a puggle puppy named Lalo, and a cat named Bosco. Bosco doesn't really like anyone but me, so I guess he's my cat. :)

My reason for wanting to lose weight and get healthy isn't necessarily to look hot. In fact, I generally think a little pudge on girls is kinda sexy. I want to try new things, like surfing and scuba. I want to get back into old things, like backpacking and skiing. And I want to travel.

To me, there is no "end goal" to be reached. That can be either terrifying or motivating. I watched my mom over the past 15 years get healthy, and she had FUN doing it! Even when she was still hefty, she got out on the trails skiing and hiking. The more you do, the more you're able to do! So for me, I can't allow this thing to be a chore that must be completed - that's too much pressure. The whole thing is a journey to be enjoyed and to have fun with!

    Before you can learn a new way of doing things, you have to unlearn the old way. ... So beginnings depend on endings.
    Here's to new beginnings with CALLING ALL GOONIES!
    emoticon Stick with me kid and we'll both look even more fantastic! I have a plan!
