I still have more weight to lose, but I am happy with the progress I've made and appreciate the resources here that help me do it.

My Goals:
1. Reduce weight to 145 lbs. before the end of the world.

2. Maintain cholesterol at 238 using diet alone.

3. Recover from serious financial setbacks of the past two-three years.

4. The fourth one is just for me!

My Program:
1. 4 Hour Body Slow Carb Diet (vegetarian).

2. Exercise: treadmill walking, spark videos and yoga.

3.. First, I am starting with what I CAN control. I am becoming better organized and eliminating "stupid stress" from my life. (I really like that phrase).

4. I am doing more leisure reading and writing in my journal. I burned out on reading for pleasure when I finished my last year of college. I miss it.

Personal Information:
I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, lived in eastern Nebraska for a while, and came back to California in 2000. Now I live in rural Monterey County.

I recognize her from the TAMC meetings I film! I'll have to tell her how cute that pic is at the meeting later this month...

I know it's a contact sport and that that means risking injury... But I still wanna do it!!!

Crazy? Probably...

I was reading blogs and your name caught my eye. I'm a Husker - lived in Nebraska all of my life until 2005 when I moved to California. I'm now living in Walnut Creek. Just waving hello at a Husker :) KT
