New hairstyle! I love my stylist's flat iron! May 2014

As of the 1st of June 2015 I can officially say that this time I have lasted two years this time.

Getting stronger. A day before the scale dropped below 100 kg for the first time in 2013.

It has been a hectic couple of years year. It brought a lot of new things in my life and took many things away from me. Some of the losses were long awaited, others I still mourne. All of them had a role to play in an inner change that I have come to cherish.

To put a long story short within the last two years I got a new job and then went back to my old job as a freelance translator. I almost broke myself down with work overload and now I'm learning how to say no to extra work. I cherish my free time and enjoy it a lot more than before.

In my personal life I had come very close to despair. The despair that I will never find someone and start a family. Then against all hope and logic I found love in the most ulikely guy. It was a relationship full of promise that fell apart in a very painful way. It brought down my walls, it tore me to pieces, made me face truths about myself that I had been denying forever. It burned me to the ground and against all odds left me full of hope, stronger that before and with an unexpected gift of understanding, motivation and love that I had never though I would feel. And then when it was over, it started all over again with another guy and another set of lessons to learn.

I have been on SparkPeople for 7 years with varying success until I hit an all time high in my weight in the spring of 2013. 110 kilos which is more that 240 lb. This time around I am putting an end to the diet rollercoaster. I've set goals that matter to me on a personal level and I've stopped rushing things. It's about becoming fit and feeling happy in my own skin. Not about losing weight or getting somebody elses approval. I'm learning to do this for me and to not give up. So I'm still here and pushing.

Fitness Minutes: 64,576

My Goals:
I would love to get to 80 kg or about 175 lb. Someday. For now though, I'm aiming at 90 kg (198 lb) for my birthday on Auguts 28th 2014.

But my main goal is to just stay in the game and keep moving in the right direction. Enjoy the ups and overcome the downs while getting fitter.

My Program:
I watch my calories keep in check where they come from.

I do strength training 3-4 times a week and dance. Lately I've been doing salsa classes 4-5 days a week. But that is for fun rather than fitness.

Personal Information:
I'm Bulgarian Living in Sofia Bulgaria. My job keeps me glued infront of a computer screen during the day and my second job as a freelance translator does the same from time to time. I try to make the rest of the time count as much as possible.

Other Information:
I adore cooking and here is another profile to prove it:

    emoticon Happy Birthday, DONE GIRL

    In Virgo the Sun is orderly and thoughtful. With the Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do, you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.
    The Virgo child is born to a mother who isn't happy with the money the father makes and she is turned off romantically to him and she becomes very critical. He is a good but somewhat passive man. The Virgo child learned to be critical to "get them before they get me." The child is shy by nature and likes to work behind the person who is the leader. Virgo makes a good accountant, nurse or teacher as they like to set the standard for others to follow. Their health issue is their intestines.
    You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.
    Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the scenes" support activity.
    You have a serious attitude toward refining your mind and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable. You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
    You may be somewhat health conscious, for you have an instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.
