I joined SparkPeople in the fall of 2009 but didn't start actually 'using' it until January 2010. I started working out and countring calories as much as I could, but I'm currently living in Italy and it's been virtually impossible to be doing what I want to do. Not only is food a huge temptation, but I'm living with a host family, so a lot of things involving food and grocery shopping and freetime to workout are out of my control. I do enjoy running and we continue to run whenever I can...

Anyways, my one-year contract is very close to being finished, and I will be moving back home May 9th. So...May 10th I am starting my lifestyle change!

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to lose about 30 lbs and really tone up my body. In this process I would also like to feel better about myself, lead a healthier lifestyle, have more confidence, and slim down my beer belly (thanks college)! I am also planning on running my first 5K as soon as I am ready! I am really ready to make exercise and healthy eating a permanent part of my lifestyle.

My Program:

Personal Information:
I grew up in Jacksonville, North Carolina, and lived in Wilmington, NC, for the past 4 years while getting my BA in Psychology from UNCW. I am currently living in Naples, Italy, working as an Au Pair! I will be returning home in May 2010 and going back to school to obtain my teaching licensure.

    Hi! I've been living in the Naples area for a couple of months now. How on earth does one watch calories over here without completely depriving oneself??!! We cook at home 5 out of 7 days, but last week - I had pizza on FOUR days!! And the pastries....ARGH! If you have any tips, I'd love to hear them. : ) emoticon
