I'm a 28 year old woman who has a pretty stressful but worthwhile office job. I live in DC, have a wonderful wife and two awesome kittens. I love the gym, biking, walking, rock climbing, and lots of other activities, so theoretically, losing weight should be easy. The nutrition side has been my undoing in the past, so I hope to use this site and community to get that in check for long-term success.

I have thyroid issues (hypo), which have certainly contributed to my weight issues. They seem to be under control now, which has let me continue to make progress.

I'm over 5'7", but probably not by enough to call myself 5'8, but I do anyway.

I had been a lifelong vegetarian until about 2 years ago, when I started occasionally eating organic chicken to bring better variety to my diet. I now eat a lot of chicken, and am experimenting with other lean proteins like fish...but i don't think i like it.

I have learned a lot since joining spark, and have put together some goals that will hopefully get me through this!

    Thanks for the blog comment! I'm hoping that other people get inspired along with me. Who knows, maybe wall sits in a board meeting will become the new "thing" haha :)
