Hi, nice to meet you. I'm Determined (well, most days).

My goal is to return to grad school (I'll have to reapply) & earn my doctorate in Psychology so I can work as a researcher & university professor. I love trying to figure out what makes people tick - they're fascinating! :) The whole idea of taking on this weight-loss & fitness challenge frightens me a great deal.

Hi, nice to meet you. I'm Determined (well, most days).

My goal is to return to grad school (I'll have to reapply) & earn my doctorate in Psychology so I can work as a researcher & university professor. I love trying to figure out what makes people tick - they're fascinating! :) The whole idea of taking on this weight-loss & fitness challenge frightens me a great deal. I struggle with motivation & faith in my abilities. I'm going to do it, though - I'm Determined! Life, here I come!

Okay - wrote the above in July 2009. Now it's 1 yr later & I have avoided SparkPeople the whole year. I'm doing better w/following through & motivation now, though, so I'm renewing my commitment to "growth" (or shrinking, in this case). :)

So, nice to meet you and hope to share successes together!

"Give Goodies to friends" was the most fun thing I found on to week-ens's 'to do' list.
I did clean the bathroom first!

Yes, I too am a book addict! One of my favorite sayings is, "My problem with reading books is that I get distracted. By other books." Lol. Truer words have never been spoken.
