tanking a break right now- be back soon!!!

Hi, I'm Melissa. I've been a vegetarian for about 16 years, and vegan since last year. While my motivations for my diet choices are based on animal rights, I really, really need to lose some weight- so I'm hoping this helps.

I miss hiking as much as I used to, which is due to bad knees. I know losing weight will help that! (Actually, I read today that for each pound lost, it takes 4 pounds of pressure off your knees, yay!)

Someday, while I'm still sort of young, I really want to do a backpack style European trip, and it would be awesome to go back to Costa Rica and not get all winded while hiking in the rainforest.

Also, I love going to concerts and dancing, and it would be rad to keep it up longer than I can now. I really miss that.

I'm an artist, I sell my work at etsy.com and local shows. I have some of my work uploaded in my pics if you'd like to take a peek!

SparkPoints: 0

Fitness Minutes: 468

My Goals:
Well first of all, I have a few things I'd like to fit into again, which include:
My old school Avail sweatshirt
My camo pants
And farther down the road, a sweet vintage dress I hold on to for that someday moment. If I can ever fit back into the 2 things I saved from High school, nothing will be able to contain my excitement!

But really, I just want to feel good- don't we all? :D

My Program:
I'm a big fan of using the Nintendo Wii to work out! I can't wait for Wii Fit to come out! I guess that's not really a program, haha:)

I like to hike and want to work that into my "program." I use an exercise bike. My diet plan includes starting to eat a healthy vegan diet as opposed to the no so healthy vegan and veg diet of days past.

Personal Information:
I'm from Dayton Ohio:)

I like listening to:
The Flaming Lips
The Rolling Stones

The Stooges
Avail
Black Flag
Led Zeppelin
Miles Davis
Phish
Bauhaus
Voltaire
Walls of Jericho
Flogging Molly
Sisters Of Mercy
The Cramps
Cradle of Filth
and I could go on and on....

Movies I like:
V for Vendetta
Lust For Life
Immortal Beloved
anything Harry Potter
and on and on...

Books:
Catcher In the Rye
anything Harry Potter
Living The Good Life
artist biographies

Magazines:
Juxtapoz
Giant Robot
Bitch
VegNews

TV:
Curb Your Enthusiasm
It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
Countdown with Keith Olbermann
Inuyasha
Bargain Hunt
Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares (despite his vegetarian trash talking!)

You get the idea- I'm all over the map!



Other Information:
I'm an artist/crafter currently selling my work on etsy.com, which is an awesome site! (Not to sound spammy or anything I hope, but if you haven't checked it out, I think you should:)) Otherwise, I'm into animal rights, volunteering, seeing live music, and watching way too much BBC America:)

Hey, you're just like me! How much luck do you have selling art online? Can you actually support yourself with that? I have an art degree but I'm sort of afraid to try to just be an artist. I work at a crummy retail job that sucks out my soul. I would love to quit and devote myself to my art. Any tips?

Hey Dayton Sparker! I just ran across your page while searching the Dayton SparkPoints Leaderboard. You are crusin' for a newbie! I am so excited for you! I also see that you are a fellow Olbermann fan (I have a secret crush on him...ssshhhhh...don't tell) Keep up the good work and plug-in to Spark often. You can absolutely do this and I wish you the very best! Heather
