My Goals:
My goal is to feel better, get that blood sugar down so my dr. can stop giving me that "look", fit into a closet full of clothes, and just get healthy.

My Program:
i'm tracking everything i eat. Its difficult, especially eating out. I find myself eating out less because I have less control over the menu. I'm eating sort of like a diebetic and spreading out my small meals throughout the day. I'm also trying to walk every day and do my strength training and elliptical 3 times a week.

Personal Information:
I'm from Orange County California

Other Information:
I love movies, comedy, sci Fi, and playing the guitar. I have a Martin D15 that sounds like butter!

Hey chick-
Thanks. I usually do pretty good on first weigh ins. I went from drink NO water to now drinking 8 glasses as well as watching points. I must say that my eating style before was a little crazy. I think I have it under control now. And I started exercising. My body is probably in shock thinking that I am mad at it!!
I LOVE foodnetwork. The weekends, that is all my TV is ever on. I like Ace of Cakes as well as the Challenges they have with the cakes. I am not that good by no means. I can do a kids b-day cake. I did do one small wedding cake for a couple that got married at the courthouse. I really like to do kids cakes. They get more excited about cake then grownups.
You don't have to tell me if you do not want to but where are you located. Sometimes publisher's look for free-lance designers and they ask us. I might be able to send some your way. No pressure. I know you don't know me from Adam but if I can help I try!! I guess that's why they put me in Customer Service, huh?

Yes! Sleeping is much better when you exercise. I think I accidentally closed the window I had open of your message board post, but I've truly been working hard over the past year to work this weight off. It's coming off slowly, but surely. =)

Hi Maria!
I am a customer service representative. So the publisher's call me and complain when they aren't happy. We do a lot of magazines but I don't know what you might would recognize. One mag we use to print but haven't in the last 6 months is Paula Deene. We do some car books. Nails (as in finger nails). medical journals, engineering books. We use to do some books by Stampington & Company. They did scrapbook stuff. We do a little bit of everything.
It must be so neat to be a designer!! I love being creative, so it would be great to be able to get paid for it. I like to paint and draw and recently took up cake decorating.
I lost 7 pounds from last tuesday to this tuesday. I am so excited!!!
Let me know how you are doing.
Lots of luck!!!

I love your glasses. They are so cool! Do you do any graphic design work that I would know of? The reason I ask is that I work for a printing company that prints magazines. So I get to hear from a lot of graphic designers.
