I weighed 250lbs in 2002. Then I went to live in Spain and Italy for a year and just from daily casual exercise and healthier eating, I lost 70 pounds! I came back to the US and lost another 30 or so over the next three years. I felt great, I looked amazing and my life felt almost perfect.

In 2007 I quit an emotionally unsatisfying career and took off to South America for almost a year. I reconnected with family there, I was very active but eating very well. When I came home I ...

In 2007 I quit an emotionally unsatisfying career and took off to South America for almost a year. I reconnected with family there, I was very active but eating very well. When I came home I brought with me 10 extra pounds and over the next 3 years, have somehow added another 10+.

I have switched from being a vegetarian of 16+ years to focusing more on eating whole foods and I exercise regularly. I am here to shed these extra pounds again, and keep them off for good.

Weight loss is tough, but I'm tougher. I plan to lose these 23 pounds by December 13, 2011, the day I start my month-long journey through India!

My Goals:
For 2012: reach 145lbs followed by 140lbs! Then maintain!

Find a job I love and get serious about going for a master's degree.


Sept 2011:Tone all (or most of) all that wiggles and jiggles.

Stop mindlessly snacking on high-fat foods like nuts & cheese: DONE!

Fit in a dress that I wore 4 years ago that I love.

My Program:
I have been converted to the "real food" movement, and feel that I am taking steps towards a healthier life by consuming organic fruits and vegetables, limited whole grains, and local dairy and meats that have been treated humanely.

Personal Information:
I've been all over the world but I haven't found any place that feels like a true home. I guess that means I have to keep looking!

Thank you for visiting my blog a few days ago! How are your goals for the week going? I really like that approach of taking it week-to-week - it makes the whole healthy lifestyle thing seem more manageable. Hope you're doing well!
