Welcome to Elizabeth-town

Hi, my name is Elizabeth! Welcome to my Sparkpage! I have been overweight pretty much my entire life, but I'm on my way to changing that. I discovered Spark People over six years ago now. I haven't used it consistently over that period of time, but I sure do better at reaching my goals when I do!

Hi, my name is Elizabeth! Welcome to my Sparkpage! I have been overweight pretty much my entire life, but I'm on my way to changing that. I discovered Spark People over six years ago now. I haven't used it consistently over that period of time, but I sure do better at reaching my goals when I do!

I'm a lawyer, a liberal, a lover of books, a scrapbooker and crafter! I do my lawyering in Charlotte, NC, and recently worked for Organizing for America as their Voter Protection Director for my region. You'll find me at the YMCA a lot, doing cardio funk and water aerobics. I've lost about 70 lbs. so far, but I'm pushing to reach that next huge milestone-- 100 lbs!

Personal Information:
I'm a southern girl... born and raised. I call Charlotte, NC home.

I am a lawyer by trade. I also volunteer with local political groups.

I also LOVE to scrapbook and paper craft, especially when I'm making things for others.

I have moved around a little bit. Most recently I moved from New Hampshire to North Carolina. Before that was Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota, and two places in Missouri where I was born. This my first time in the real south and I think I like it. How long have you been in Charlotte?

Thanks for the comment. Your progress is great! Do you have any favorite places you like to go near Charlotte for outdoor exercise? I'm relatively new to the area and I don't know much about what is out here. Have a good rest of the week!

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I just saw that you're in Charlotte too. The pic on my page is from work. I work on the 42nd floor of the Energy Center. Sometimes the view from here is just far more interesting than work. emoticon

As far as I know all of the animal facts are true, but I got them from the internets, so you never know!
