Apparently, I've had some sort of epiphany :)

I'm a graduate student, studying Arts & Technology.

I feel like I've finally figured something out. This time, I've completely changed my relationship with food, and at 29, I'm mature enough now to have realistic expectations.

I've been around. I've been a yo-yo dieter. I feel now that I have transcended my old yo-yo pattern, and replaced it with a healthy eating pattern I can stick with for the rest of my life. Of course, there's still goals to reach, but I'm 100% ...

I've been around. I've been a yo-yo dieter. I feel now that I have transcended my old yo-yo pattern, and replaced it with a healthy eating pattern I can stick with for the rest of my life. Of course, there's still goals to reach, but I'm 100% sure I can reach them. "I feel good about this," is an understatement. So instead, I'll say "I've got this."

Wanna take what I have learned and share it with the world! While I'm finishing my degree, I'm also taking a "Healthy Lifestyle and Weight Management Specialist" course and getting certified. Plan on combining what I know about healthy lifestyles with my artistic skills and doing something with that (I've got plans).

Yes, apparently, I've had some sort of epiphany :)

Howdy and welcome to the Browncoat Team!

We're a kind of laid back bunch that enjoys any and all discussion of Firefly, Serenity, and anything our BDHs are involved in. Or whatever else we decide to talk about! Please nose around and feel free to jump in!

If you would like, please join one or more of our team goals. They are set up to emulate our BDHs - a shiny goal for any of us!

Thank you for taking the time to read and post on my blog. It really means a lot to me. I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. Congratulations on the 6 lbs you have lost already. Isn't it exciting to see that number on the scale get lower and lower? Woohoo! Keep rockin' it girl! Hugs.

Re: Your comment on my vegetarian status. I've been doing some research and a low-carb vegetarian diet does indeed look feasible! I'm giving it a test run for a few days to see how I like it... I'm not going completely vegan (at least not yet) and I'll still have a little bit of dairy and egg. I'm trying this out partially for health reasons, and partially for ethical reasons. I'll write a blog about it at some point, hehe. :)

I try not to focus too much on sizes.....it's just funny to me that while I *think* I'm getting smaller, it COULD just be that the world is getting bigger! emoticon

Have a happy weekend!
