I'm a Canadian living in Japan, and it seems that the longer I stay here, the more I gain weight. I did join Spark a few years ago and was successful then, but I've fallen off the wagon so many times it seems I've forgotten what it's like to be on it.

I've decided to make my health my number one priority and will see where that takes me over the coming year.

Personal Information:
I'm a Canadian living in Japan. This is my second time here, after a five-year hiatus. The first time I left Japan I was at what was then my heaviest ever. Once I left I lost most of the weight but over the past couple of years the scale has gone up and up and up. Other than the obvious health and image issues, being a big gal in Japan is problematic -- when my clothes don't fit, I have no way to replace them. So I've decided that I need to be the change I want to see happen. I want to stop making excuses for reasons why I'm fat or can't work out. I'm focusing on the solutions, not the problems.

Other Information:
Photography is my biggest passion -- I have over 20 (film) cameras, do all my own processing and darkroom printing. I also love to travel, and love to plan for my next vacation. I also love to read, although I don't have as much time to do that here as I used to.
