Dissidia Duodecim 012 Final Fantasy
My name is Shanna, but people call me MP or Mel because of my screen name. I love anime and manga (I'm really into Naruto at the moment). I also enjoy learning about Japan in general and I'm a big J-Rock fan. Other hobbies I enjoy are video games, art (drawing and etc), and reading (though I haven't been reading much lately).
I don't have any good pics of myself, but my page looked naked so I added pics of my two favorite bands and my current gaming obsession.
I started my weight loss journey about two years ago. Ninety some odd pounds later I'm very close to my goal weight and I'm extremely proud of myself for once. I haven't been with SparkPeople the whole time, only for the last thirty pounds or so of weight loss, but the site has helped me out considerably during this last leg of the race. It's been a lot easier to keep track of myself and I've picked up a few pointers along the way from the team here.
*As a bit of an update, I had to get myself back on the wagon. I gained some weight mostly because I lost control of my eating habits. Good thing I kept exercising though. Ah well...back to the grind...)*
Since I started working to loose weight my ultimate goals were to raise my self esteem and get healthier. Ultimately I'm trying to get back down to a size eight.
Back to tracking my eating habits more closely.
I'm also continuing to exercise and have added some strength training to the mix (Jackie Warner has been kicking my butt for a few weeks now).
Since I love Japanese culture, it also means I love Japanese Rock and Pop music.
My favorites: Plastic Tree (my ultimate favorite at the moment), Alice Nine, L'Arc~en~Ceil, Hyde, Tetsu69, Acid Android, S.O.A.P, Arai Akino, Asian Kung-Fu Generation, Buck-Tick, X-Japan, Do As Infinity, Glay, Janne da Arc, Kagrra, Judy and Mary, Pierrot, Kirito, The Gazette, Luna Sea, Malice Mizer, Gackt, Dir en Grey (kinda), Mr. Children, Miyavi, Due le Quartz, Siam Shade, T.M. Revolution, Spin Aqua, See Saw, The Pillows, Utada Hikaru, D, Bonnie Pink, Rentrer en Soi, An Cafe, High and Mighty Color, SID, La'cryma Christi, Olivia, kra, Psycho le Cemu, Ellegarden, Daigo Stardust, Vidoll, Baroque, Blood, Raphael, and others. Phew, that was a lot ^_^
Other Music I Like: Classic Rock (in general), Radio Head, Alice In Chains, Cold Play, er...and that's all I can think of for now because I've been listening to J-Rock a lot more.
| current weight: 176.0

hello and Welcome to the Artists Team...I have just joined that team myself yesterday and have to say have been very impressed with the wonderful welcomes and support from this community ;-)...I also have notice that you are very interested in japanese culture...this is an interest of mine as well, my mum was born and raised in japan and being half japanese it has been an ongoing interest...before you ask no I don't speak the language unfortunately and sadly my mum never taught my Brother or myself the wonderful language, sad I know...I wish you all the best in acheiving your goals and hope to chat with u sometime here...have a great day, Sheryl
