I am hoping to lose 90 lbs to start. I might lose more once I reach that goal. While I want to lose weight, I also want to become healthier and have a better relationship with food and exercise.
I live in the southern suburbs of Minneapolis, MN. I work as a massage therapist at a chiropractic clinic. I LOVE my job. I love helping people feel better. Umm...I am on facebook. I don't know what else to put here, so I'm stopping now.
I am wiccan and alternative in many ways. I consider myself a goth, but it might not be seen on the outside, given my occupation. I love belly dancing and hope to one day dance for the public. I am a history buff. I have worked at the local Renaissance Festival and am a board member for a Victorian Society. I am tattooed and pierced and want more. I love music of many varieties and I am a foodie. (There is a reason I wish to lose weight)
I am complicated but passionate. I wear my heart on my sleeve. I am caring, but sometimes feel like I am overlooked. I miss having a best friend.
Some weird things about me. Not a complete picture, but as chaotic and crazy as I am. =)
Do you still have a membership at Lifetime? I joined a couple months ago. They're doing this weight loss contest, where for $25 you get some classes, you get weighed in, and if you win you get money. I've heard you get a bracelet. (whooo hoo!)
Maybe joining a team would help you get motivated again. ?
I'm taking swimming lessons now, and after I learn to swim, I plan to join the masters swim class. Swimming is easier on my knees than running and it's fun!
"For the most part, most people most often choose comfort--the familiar, the time-honored, the well-worn but well-known. After a lifetime of choosing between comfort and risk, we are left with the life we currently have." --John-Roger and Peter McWilliams (Do It! Let's Get Off our Buts)
Good morning, Spark friend! I hope you're enjoying your weekend. Get out there and take some risks...step out of your comfort zone and start taking some steps towards your goals.
Happy Saturday, Sparkfriend! Weekends are hard for me, but I'm determined to stay on track and I hope you will too! Have a great weekend! Keep reaching for your goals, one day at a time! Hugs, Pixie
"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time." --William E. Holler
