Update 7/6/2014:

After a year and a half on tour, not eating right and not exercising enough, those 15 pounds I was so happy to lose? Yeah, they crept back on. I think TSA snuck them into my checked baggage. :)

However, being back in Los Angeles (at least for the summer), I have discovered a new fun exercise class: Aerial 101 at the cirque school! It's an hour long class, half on aerial silks, half on the static trapeze, minus the warm up and cool down time. It's a bit ...

However, being back in Los Angeles (at least for the summer), I have discovered a new fun exercise class: Aerial 101 at the cirque school! It's an hour long class, half on aerial silks, half on the static trapeze, minus the warm up and cool down time. It's a bit expensive, and not so close to where I live, but so much fun. And the desire to be able to do tricks, and climb to the ceiling (harder than it looks!) is great motivation to get stronger.

Did pretty well with the Summer 5% challenge, managed to lose 7 pounds instead of 8.5, but that's waaaay better than nothing. So yay for that. Can't wait for the fall challenge to start.

(From 1/2012)
My name is Meghan, I'm 28 years old. I recently moved back from France, where I was an au pair and walking everywhere, to Los Angeles ('nobody walks in LA', the song is very true) as a theatre technician.

I've always been slightly overweight, and moving back added about 10 pounds on top of that. I'm bored of being self conscious about how I look and tired of hating clothes shopping. I want to be comfortable in my own skin. I also have pairs of jeans that are in good condition but a bit tight, and I really can't afford to spend money on buying new ones. Unless they're smaller, of course. ;) So, time for a change.

I've been trying to lose weight off and on for years, but only on my own. Hoping that this will be the difference.
