One of my favorite quotes :)
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I'm finally ready to lose weight the smart, healthy, and SLOW way after five years of constant dieting, battling an eating disorder, and simply hating my body.
Right now, I'm a little overwhelmed with all of the great resources here on Spark People, so I'm sorry if I don't reply to your e-mail or comment, but I very much appreciate all of the kind words and support you all have been offering! And when I finally do get the hang of SP, I promise that I would love to support all of you in your journey as well :)
June 21: 159
July 20: 149.9
July 27: 147.5
August 3: 146.2
August 10: 146.1
August 17: Hopefully better than Aug 10 weigh-in!
Superficially? I want to reach the weight I am most comfortable at - 130.
Mentally? I want to learn to love exercise, end my emotional eating, stop purging, and be at a place where food no longer controls my life.
As of May 13, 2009, I'm just SparkStreakin'! Eventually, with (very, very) little steps, I hope to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
July 1: 1 pound down, 23 to go - I can do it!
July 20: Finally under 150! I am 149.9, yessss!
August 3: Proud member of the 8 Week Battle #5 Yellow Team!
I hail from the Midwest. (And yes, I do have a funny accent)
I'm a typical 20-something college student - always busy, pretty stressed out, but always optimistic for the better future I hope to help create.
I am trying to get into old hobbies I had (eating disorders tend to destroy your interests, relationships, and life in general), such as piano playing, reading, volunteering with animals, etc. Hopefully, with this healthy lifestyle change, I will rediscover some of my old passions.
I just changed my major again - magazine journalism with a minor in politics. I love politics, and am interested in investigative journalism.

Yellow, Green, Red and Blue
All good teams, tried and true
Yellow has won the test
By showing us how to be the best
But don't let this win go to you head
because Green, Red, Blue may cause you dread
Fired up these teams all are
Rallying their warriors from near and far
So you better not think that you are an automatic shoe-in
Because Teams Green, Red and Blue really want to win
Enjoy the week and the victory savor
For next week's win may not find you in favor.
to the Yellow Team for their victory for Week 4 and good luck to Teams Green, Red and Blue. Battle on!

“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” Albert Schweitzer
I thought that this was appropriate for SP because it is filled with so many people who help to rekindle our inner spirit in those times when it goes out, or is dimmed.
