only showing my face...
Hey, my name is Karina. I´ve spent the last year of my life living in Chile. It was a fantastic experience, but not such a great experience for my waist-line. Although I slowly become a vegetarian during my 12-month stay, my alcohol consumption helped me add almost 20 pounds to my 5´10¨frame that wasn´t exactly twiggy to begin with.
I like exercising quite a bit, but get busy with work, graduation from college in May, classes, and tutoring Spanish on the side. I´m working on making exercise a priority and am hoping to shed 62 pounds by May when I graduate with my bachelor´s degree in Spanish Literature.
Lose 62 pounds by graduation in May.
Run like the wind!
Go kayaking somewhere in Arizona.
eating roughly 1600 calories a day, riding my bike to campus everyday, yoga once a week, gym for jogging and lifting weights 2x/week, one long run/week.

You're such a sweetheart!!!! I think the hardest part of weightloss is realizing the simple truths... I continue to have "eureka" moments where I realize something else, that would seem so simple to many... but help me push just a little bit harder! You can do it! We'll do it together!!
P.S. I'm OBSESSED with your glasses. So adorable.

Hi Karina, welcome to Spark. I've always wanted to go to Chile. I spent four years studying Spanish in high school, only to have my family move to Francophone Switzerland. Oh well. Switzerland does have the huge advantage of being central to most of Europe, so we've seen a lot. Good luck with your goals :D.
