Fairy Tale of a Fat Girl

Once upon a time there was a fat girl who became determined to get her health back on track......

Hi, I'm Diane! I am working on making me the healthiest me I can be! I've really mastered making exercise a priority in my life. I could be a little better about going on the weekends or days off of work, but I've come a long, long way.

Once upon a time there was a fat girl who became determined to get her health back on track......

Hi, I'm Diane! I am working on making me the healthiest me I can be! I've really mastered making exercise a priority in my life. I could be a little better about going on the weekends or days off of work, but I've come a long, long way.

What I'm really trying to do is support all this awesome activity with the right foods and calories! That's my biggest struggle, but I learn a little more everyday, and have a lot of great support on here. I couldn't ask for better SparkFriends than the ones I've found so far! Once I get this piece of the puzzle figured out, there will be no stopping me!

Fitness Goals:
Complete a 5K under 45 minutes

Those are my first few, I'll add more, and maybe some rewards once i think of them!

My Program:
I hit my gym Monday-Friday before work. Not really sure how this night owl turned into a morning exerciser, but it seems to be working, so I'm sticking with it!

I like to do races, usually just 5k's, but I'm completing my second 10k on March 29th, AND I've signed up for the Richmond half marathon in November- EEK! Races keep me motivated to keep training hard.

I still struggle with eating, but tracking my food and trying my best to stick to my SP ranges. I'm just trying to trust the process, even when I don't see any changes. I know if I'm patient it will continue to pay off.

Personal Information:
Glen Allen, VA

I'm married, no kids yet. I do have two nieces and two nephews. And we have two fur babies- a ginger tomcat named Jean-Luc and a grey/tortie tabby called Unna. I work full time for a mortgage company.

I love to read, I write a bit (although I haven't in a long time) and also love music. I dabble a little in sewing/crocheting/embroidary. I enjoy medieval history.

I'm totally a Doctor Who junkie, and an Anglophile in general. BBC America can be a problem in my life. ;)

I adore Firefly as well.

Haven't played in a while, but I enjoy a good game of D&D, as well. It's actually how I met my husband! :D

Other Information:
One decision at a time.
This is the motto of my life.

"I am a leaf on the wind, watch how I soar" is my mantra.

Oh gosh yes, smells can take me back.

I remember when I was about 11 I lived in a townhouse and one across the street caught fire on Christmas Eve. Later some of us kids when inside after the family had moved out and there was a bottle of Polo lying on the floor. Every time I smell Polo I think of that fire.

YEsssss! Read science-y things!!!!


If you like both science and religion, there is a soft sci-fi book that I think is pretty compelling.

It's called The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.

Hi There!
I hope you are doing well!
I just wanted to let you know that I am going to run a 5K near Washington DC. It is called the Biggest Loser 5 K.
