Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I'm a single, 32 year old female and I've been overweight almost my entire life. My weight keeps me from participating in many social activities / events with others my age. I feel like I'm already a senior citizen!!! A friend recommended this site to me and I thought "What the heck? Might as well give it a shot!"
I acknowledge that my body is God's temple and I want it to be in the best shape possible for His use.
I'm basically trying to follow the Michael Thurmond 6-Week Body Makeover Plan (with a few alterations) which has me eating 5-6 times a day, focusing on lots of lean protein, fresh fruits, & veggies and avoiding alot of pre-packaged foods.
I was born & raised in Warren, OH, but I currently hail from the Fort Lauderdale, FL area. I'm a Christian believer and have been a member of Community Christian Church since June 2005, where I serve on the leadership teams for youth and young adults ministries. I work as an administrative assistant at a resource center for the developmentally disabled. It's an AWESOME work environment and I have the coolest boss ever!
Favorite Book: The Bible (New Internation Version)
Favorite Movies: Rent, Moulin Rouge, My Fair Lady, Requiem for a Dream, Hackers, Imitation of Life, The Color Purple
Favorite Music: INDUSTRIAL (VNV Nation, Assemblage23, Apoptygma Berzerk); ROCK (like Linkin Park and Korn), DANCE/TECHNO (like Underworld, The Prodigy, & Paul Oakenfold), & Contemporary Christian (like Plumb, Tobymac, & Chris Tomlin)
| current weight: 374.0

I was referring to the regular old oriental chicken...it has pasta with it, I think. Or maybe I'm thinking of something else...I don't know. But I had NO IDEA they had a new Fruit Inspirations line!! Yeah, seriously, now I'm hungry.
How'd you do today?

Thanks for your comment...it's nice to know that I have a fellow bad-money-decision-making-non-profit-compa
ving kindred spirit!
My debt came from deciding that it was a super good idea to take out those stupid internet payday loans and credit cards to pay for things like shoes and new clothes and MP3 players rather than get a second job and actually try to live within my means. Ah, to be young again...
I'm lucky because my part-time job is in a different department as my full time job, so my commute is just a walk down the hall from my office. I also for some reason have a mini-fridge in my office, so I stocked it with healthy stuff. But I hear you on the temptation to drive through the fast food joints. This is the temptation I face every night when I'm driving home.
You know what are awesome? Those SmartOnes meals. Try the oriental chicken and thank me later :)
I'll be 30 on January 2 of next year. And I'm very much looking forward to it.
Keep up the good work! Every day it gets easier...or so they tell me.
