For years, I've wanted to lose weight. I kept telling myself that I would deal with one problem at a time, and now that I've quit smoking (as of the end of June 2010) and hit the age of 30, I've decided it's past time to get serious.

My Goals:
I want to lose weight both for the benefit of being able to wear the clothes I want and look good in them, and also to keep myself fit and healthy for many years to come.

My Program:
Right now I'm starting out with walking, calorie counting, and using Dance Dance Revolution for cardio. I'm trying to leave several options open for when I hit the dreaded plateaus.



Personal Information:
I'm a single, homeschooling mom that works in a cafe attached to a grocery store. My job is a big source of stress, and a place that makes snacking all too easy.

I'm also a huge geek, with a variety of obsessions. My current mantra to keep myself going is to tell myself that I need to be ready to run the day the Doctor shows up.


Other Information:
I love reading, writing and crafting. I also enjoy fishing and exploring nature. I like to cook, but hate to clean; dishes are my mortal enemy. I'm using several of the things I'm learning here on SP to take control of more than just my health, including trying to reduce clutter and keep my house cleaner.
