I'm on Fitocracy too! Get points and "power up" just for working out! Join at http://ftcy.co/HKTse3 and look for the SparkPeople team!

I often follow Dr. Joshi's Holistic Detox. I am currently keeping his principles in mind while working to lose weight before summer holidays! This means I eat natural foods whenever possible, by avoiding artificial sweeteners, additives and most processed or packaged foods. I have been a vegetarian since 2004 and I love experimental, gourmet vegetarian cooking.

I successfully lost 20 pounds very easily by tracking my calories and increasing my workouts. That was in 2010, and I got too comfortable with my success! I stopped tracking and replaced my workouts with language courses, but after a year realized that I'm at my happiest when I prioritize my health. I got back in the groove in the summer of 2011, and now in early 2012 I've met my weight loss goals and I'm building my strength and endurance! I owe my body to SparkPeople and my local YMCA... and trust me, if I can do it, you can too!

Fitness Minutes: 20,400

My Goals:
I have met and surpassed my initial weight loss goal. I have set an arbitrarily lower goal, but my primary focus is to keep building strength and cardiovascular endurance while nourishing my body with healthy foods.


My Program:
- Tracking every single calorie. Sometimes I go over my recommended daily limit, but I still enter every last bite in my tracker.

- Exercising. I am uncoordinated. I'm not naturally strong. I've never been good at sports. I feel awkward at the gym. But I go anyways. All the time.

    I love the food pics on your page, and I love your impressive weight loss accomplishment. I take photos of everything I eat these days and write down every calorie whenever possible. I hope to mirror your success. I travel quite a bit and enjoy learning about world cuisine.

    I've seen some of your posts on message boards and decided to check into your page. You seem like an interesting person! So I added you as a friend so I can remember to read some of your blogs, check out some of your recipes (always looking for something new).

    Thanks for the tips on Italy. I will try to check out Torino and Alba (Moscato=my favorite). I probably won't make Venice this trip- sticking to west/central region (Milan to Florence, Tuscany and Cinque Terra). Only have about 10 days in Italy before I head over to France.
    I look forward to hearing about your next trip. I always wondered why more teachers don't travel like you all summer.
