Daring Diva Takes The Plunge...

You have no doubt heard the saying, 'It ain't over till the Fat Lady sings", and it's true. I know, 'cause I AM that Fat Lady! I've also been a typical yo-yo dieter since elementary school, and have probably lost 300 pounds over the years. The bad news is I gained every one of those pounds back, plus a few more for good measure. Now that I've been diagnosed with 'entry level' diabetes, changing the way I eat and live is more than cosmetic option - it's absolutely essential!

My Goals:
I just want to find my true shape once again. It got buried somehow underneath a lot of excess baggage. It's time to drop the baggage, AND the extra pounds I've been lugging around for so long. I plan on loosing a healthy one pound per week...no crash diets for THIS diva!

My Program:
I am NOT on a diet...because diets don't work. I've tried them all. Oh, I lost weight on all of them, but it always came back. These days I am simply choosing a better, healthier lifestyle, that includes reasonable portions of nutritious food, and plenty of exercise and H2O. These are good choices. CHOICES are a whole lot easier to live with than DIETS.

Personal Information:
I am a professional vocal coach and vocalist, and working towards becoming a published author - keep your fingers crossed! I moved from Northern California to Oregon back in Feb of 2010, then down to Southern California in 2011. I currently reside in West Los Angeles.

Other Information:
I love to write and read fiction!

Just popped by to say hello :)

Would you care to take up my challenge over at the Drunken Drow Inn?

We begin on 30th August, and a menu plan has been posted today in order to give everyone time to get oganised.

It would be great if you could go check it out and if you feel up to the challenge..maybe you could join my group of brave warriors as we go forth into battle?

Many regards and wishes from Allegra over at the Drunken Drow Inn
