Hello all! My name is Laura. I have been on spark since October 2008 and I can truly say that sparkpeople has changed my life! Through all the support and friends I have met through this amazing community, I decided to change my career from corporate finance to become a Registered Dietitian, with a strong passion for weight management. Every day I look to my amazing patients who continue to inspire me and encourage me to always put my health first.

Through Spark, I lost 65# and was maintaining well until the beginning of 2016. My husband and I moved across the state of Texas and I had to endure a job change in addition to moving away from my friends and family. It's been rough on me trying to transition to a new place, new job and now being in graduate school. I've gained a significant amount of weight back in this time, so looking to get back to my happy weight and back with my healthy lifestyle.

Reach out to me at any time!

*Run a 10K! DONE! 10/17/10

*Become a spin class instructor

My Program:
This is always changing, because consistency is something I struggle with if I'm doing the same things all the time.
Right now, I eat based on the plate method without excluding any foods. I aim to lift weights 2x/week with a trainer and I try to do cardio 2-3 times a week. I've had several injuries from running, so I have stopped and I just focus on spinning, cycling, elliptical, pilates and walking.

*First 10K: Ft Worth Mercury 10K 10/17/108

Personal Information:
I'm from the DFW area of Texas, but now live in Houston with my wonderful husband and our dog. I grew up between Texas and Boston, so I'm a huge Red Sox fan! I am a Registered Dietitian by day!

My main passions in life are: reading, cooking, dogs, spinning, baseball and strategic board games
