In case anyone has wondered about my name, & doesn't eat enough sushi to know, Tako means octopus in Japanese. I'm a former Japanese Language and Culture major, I dropped it in favor of only pursuing Graphic Design, but that fell through too, so mostly I'm just an artist who works other jobs in an attempt to pay the bills now. I've always had a thing for octopi, ever since I was little, so I named my art and jewelry business Tako Ink.
Any way, I'm doing this all to lose weight I put on through several long illnesses and a knee surgery, and not eating well while worrying more about others through their surgeries. I'm finally sick of it, especially since my boyfriend has undergone gastric bypass surgery and lost a huge amount of weight. I didn't make my goal by my wedding (was actually my heaviest ever for the event) & ended up very dissatisfied with myself in pretty much all of my wedding photos. As a result I am now trying very hard to become a better me, at a constant healthy weight!

Fitness Minutes: 2,703

My Goals:
Drink enough water, stay within all my nutrition targets, and try to do some exercise of some sort each day. I'm also attempting to walk at least 5,000 steps a day.

My Program:
I use my pedal exerciser a few times each week, I try to do some fairly intense cardio every day I don't work, and try to at least do some yoga on the days that I do. I'm trying to incorporate little amounts of physical activity in here and there where I can. I'm also going to be trying me hardest to log 5,000 steps every day.

Personal Information:
Nearly 5 years ago I moved from California, to Georgia in 2 suitcases, a duffel bag, and a few boxes I shipped to my boyfriend out here. I left my family, and my best friend behind. I'm working on coming back to where I was in high school before several illnesses, a knee injury, and then a college knee surgery put me so far behind what i ever wanted to be at weight wise.
