Shared Fitness Tracker
Hi, I'm Jaina! I'm new to SparkPeople, but not to weight loss. I had been losing weight on my own for a few months, but had started to plateau - and, worse, gain weight! - when I found this website. With all the tools I have available to me at SparkPeople, I'm back on track and losing those pounds I put on.
I want to be back down to my high school weight by my wedding in June. Eventually, I'd like to be a size 10 or even an 8! But a 12 would be perfect for the wedding.
For me, it's really about portion control and making sure I exercise. I have to pay close attention to my protein intake, too, because I tend to come in low on protein all the time. But, most important, EXERCISE!
I'm a Fort Collins girl at heart, no matter where I actually reside. I've been blessed with the opportunity to actually LIVE in Fort Collins again, with my wonderful fiance!
Excitingly enough, I have a full-time job as a Reference Researcher, which means bills get paid and I don't panic. Sadly, I'm now a desk jockey, so I'm having to find all kinds of new ways to get out of the cubicle farm and exercise. My eventual goal is to be a writer, although in what capacity I don't know yet.
My first passion is the written word. Writing or reading, nothing thrills me more than the intracacies of language. You'll find that I'm a much happier person when I can write. And I'm definitely less stressed.
What else? I adore old things! I've got a very classic style, very Victorian tastes in architecture and decoration, and a deep love of history - well, the parts that make good stories, anyway! My tastes in music and movies, though, is... eclectic? I love everything from Pride and Prejudice to Star Wars, from Vivaldi to Dragonforce.
