Motivational Poster for Summer Camp
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
After making some dramatic progress toward my goal (started June 07), I left SP b/c the food tracking just was broken for me. My husband and I do a lot of homecooking and he, in particular, doesn't work from recipes--estimating those dinners was just becoming a chore.
Though I have kept up with exercising (husband and I started Couch to 5k last fall), I would like to continue to monitor my caloric intake and get the weight back closer to my goal of 135.
My husband's works schedule is about to change dramatically, so I'm looking for new ways to be accountable and stay motivated, so I'm back to SP. Plus, my buddy Riotous Lioness is using the site again this summer!

Currently living on Florida's Gulfcoast, but have had a number of addresses. The furthest west I've ever been is Arkansas and the furthest east Austria. I've lived in Northern England and several US states (MD, NJ, PA, and FL).
I'm co-parenting two alley cats, a terrier, and my pre-teen brother.
I've been married for five years. In our dreams, we'll be living on a houseboat in ten years, traveling to art festivals and sharing margaritas.
I own an iPod and a linoleum knife. I know how to make my own paper and beer. I make kick-ass guacamole and pierogie, but never learned to ride a bicycle.
I've gotten a paycheck or volunteered at the following places: Habitat for Humanity, a variety of museums and art centers, my alma mater, mortgage company, a fruit stand, a free bookstore, and a leather shop.
Halloween is the holiday I look most forward to.

I love to read works by Jeanette Winterson, Minette Walters, Chuck Palahniuk, and Neil Gaiman; Catch-22 is my favorite novel of all time.

Hope you are gearing up for a fabulous Halloween!
I too really enjoy Jeanette Winterson. For a bit of good fiction, have you ever read anything by Sarah Waters or Emma Donoghue?

Glad to see someone else celebrates Halloween. My daughter was born on 27 Oct. She decorates for Halloween. Has a Halloween Village she sets up each year. Mother and I always have a Pizza Party and invite all the family to come and enjoy the food and go trick-a-treating in our neighborhood.
