I'm a certified yoga teacher in Ohio and I've found a lot of body awareness through a solid practice. I've been overweight all my life, actually I think the last time I saw 130lbs on the scales was in 6th grade. Pitiful eh? I am lucky in a way I suppose because I do carry my weight well...when I say I want to lose 60lbs, a lot of ppl don't see how that would be healthy- but, losing 60 would put me at a healthy weight, so that's what I'm shooting for (although 15 would be a great achievement!) Not only would I like to improve my image (because the chub on the tummy, hips and thighs is NOT attractive when I'm wearing yoga gear), but lately my health not been well. I was recently diagnosed with lupus and I need to lose weight so I can be healthier. I'm here for all the right reasons. :) And I hope to stick with Spark!!

My Goals:
I would like to lose 60 lbs in the next year. Short term goal would be 2-3lbs/week until I'm down a few and then 1-2lbs/week. I plan on joining the peace corps in Sept of 2009- so I'd like to be in good shape by then!


My Program:
I plan on doing vinyasa yoga 3x/week and going to the gym twice (exercising a total of 5x/week). I eat pretty well on my own so getting a good workout routine is going to be a challenge for me.



Personal Information:
I live in Athens, Ohio and attend Ohio University. I am working on getting my master's degree in rehab/community counseling. One more year!!!


Other Information:
I'm huge into Buddhist and Hindu philsophies and how they can be incorporated into our daily paths. I love reading and hanging with friends...but most of all, traveling!
