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.

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 ...
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.

Love 30 Seconds to Mars and Smashing Pumpkins!

My fave Pumpkins song is Zero:

Emptiness is loneliness, and loneliness is cleanliness
And cleanliness is godliness, and god is empty just like me
Intoxicated with the madness, I'm in love with my sadness
Bullsh*t fakers, enchanted kingdoms
The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth
I never let on, that I was on a sinking ship
I never let on that I was down

Thanks for your comments on my "Overload" blog!

I think your relationship with your dad is, sadly, far more common than the one I had with my adoptive dad. Even my stepmom thought it was weird we were so close. When I was away at college I called him EVERY DAY. Not to fix problems or anything, but just to say hi. That's what I miss the most now that he's gone, the daily "howyadoin" phone calls.

My dad was very supportive of my search for my birth parents, because he knew I wasn't looking to replace him. And when I told him I had been contacted by my birth mom he was SO EXCITED.

And yeah, it's definitely wanting to know more about my personality and medical history that interests me most, but the truly most important thing is wanting to know if he WANTS to get to know me. When my mom contacted me she made it clear she wanted to know me as an adult and she told me how excited all of her family was to meet me. That meant so much. Meeting her and her family went so well that it's almost inevitable that I'll be disappointed with meeting my dad, lol. So if I leave it this way, I can sort of regulate any potential hurt.

Thanks SO much for being supportive, you don't know how much I appreciate it!
