Don't think diet - think just do it!

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to visit my page. I am an opera singer and private voice teacher who loves great food and fine wine but not the extra pounds that I've been basically ignoring. My ultimate goal: To lose this excess weight in a healthy way and keep it off for good- WITHOUT giving up the things I love, like meatballs & vino!

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to visit my page. I am an opera singer and private voice teacher who loves great food and fine wine but not the extra pounds that I've been basically ignoring. My ultimate goal: To lose this excess weight in a healthy way and keep it off for good- WITHOUT giving up the things I love, like meatballs & vino! Since being married, I have gained a good 15 pounds... depends on the day, if you know what I mean. I call it my "happily ever after weight." I want to take off what I've gained and stop any more from creeping on. I was a competitive cheerleader once upon a time and have traded the hours spent at those practices for hours devoted to being the best professional singer and voice teacher I can be. I have seen a real change in my stamina with these extra pounds. I am very active on stage and I need to look the part as much as sing it. Getting healthy is important to every aspect of my life. I have been back and forth using Sparkpeople, but most recently with the goal to loose my "happily ever after pounds" by my 5 year wedding anniversary. I didn't lose as much as I wanted by the big day, but I was almost there! So close... but I still was thinking diet and not lifestyle. And since then, I haven't really even thought once about it. Except for when my clothes don't fit... I do realize now that once I started losing, I started thinking I could do it totally on my own, but that has been my downfall. So, happy 10 years, let's loose the weight and just be "happily ever after." So, here we ago. Again. I want to be slow and steady with this and really create a lifelong change for better health. I want to make healthy habits an every day part of life. Starting right now. Don't think diet... think just do it!!!! I am looking for that balance of enjoying food without the guilt of 'watching what I eat'. Life is too short. I want to life it to the fullest every way I can. I want to spend my minutes with happy thoughts, not, 'how long do I have to work out to get rid of that?'. My biggest challenge is always excercise. I don't even remember the girl who jumped and fliped. She is there somewhere. I'm going to find her again! Feel free to drop me a line. I love to meet new people. We're all in this together!!!!

Personal Information:
I am originally from NY but currently call NC home.

I am married to a wonderful man who also happens to be an opera singer. He loves to cook and eat as much as I do. We are quite a pair! We are fortunate enough to perform together often, so we get to travel and rehearse and really understand what it is to live our crazy lives.

We were married 8 years this past summer. We're both trying to revamp our health and fitness and shed the 'happily ever after weight' that we have collectively gained.


Other Information:
Give opera a chance! Most people find that once they see one live, they really like it!

I am addicted to reading fashion magazines and cook books.

I Google anything and everything.

I can spend hours at CVS and not buy one thing.
