Remember...

...what it was like to gallop a horse?
...what it was like to ride a wicked roller coaster?
...what it was like to *want* to go clothes shopping?
...what it was like to not be sick/hurting all the time?
...what it was like to actually have fun?

I do. Those are the things I desperately long for in my life again, and I hope that with this place and support, that I will be able to have them again before I forget what it was all like.

Member Since: 5/26/2014

SparkPoints: 1,302

Fitness Minutes: 351

My Goals:
My main goal is to get back to a point where I can enjoy life to its fullest potential. Right now, unfortunately, I can do nothing I love. An adrenaline junkie is not meant to be 350 pounds.

I want to be happy and healthy; not constantly run down, depressed and miserable.

I'm going to change that; for good.

My Program:
The highest weight I can ever remember being, is right around 370. My program will consist of, to start, 20 minutes of cardio for 6 days a week, bumping it up to 30 minutes within a month, providing my knee can handle the strain.

I will be striving to eat as cleanly as possible, but will still enjoy favorite foods in moderation.

Weight Loss Goals:

355 - Hair colour
345 - A few goodies from LUSH.
335 - Handmade Soaps
325 - Quality loose-leaf Teas
315 - Art Commission from a fav. artist.
300 - $100 to spend at ThinkGeek.com
280 - Some socks from sockdreams!
240 - $200 to spend at ThinkGeek.com
220 - 2 shirts from WeLoveFine
200 - 2 dresses from Modcloth
185 - Spa day
170 - Hang gliding
150 - Horseback riding holiday in Ireland

Personal Information:
Originally from Kansas and now living in Australia.

Other Information:
I'm a writer and a dreamer; a bit of an artist. I enjoy just about anything sci-fi related, and am a passionate Romulan fan (from TOS - VOY only) who also likes to do a little cosplay from time to time.

I am an avid animal lover; horses and cats are my favorites.

I read through your rewards for meeting your mini goals and you have some really good ones there. I especially like the handmade soap idea, so I'm stealing it. Hope you are doing well!
