I'm a little too shy to show the entire SparkPeople world what I look like, but this is me in my Halloween costume (dressed as the Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno) and showing the body shape I really hope to change through this webpage.

I feel like I'm online all the time, and have worried for years now that all the time in front of the computer has been contributing to my weighing more than I should. I'm completely thrilled by the idea of being able to use my computer and the internet for improving my body rather than the opposite.

Also, I recently started a new stage of my life - I moved to a new city and began graduate school - so now it's time for an improved body to go with all these changes. Hopefully this site will help me to manage my weight while worrying about classes, homework, and everything else that comes with this new level of education.

My Goals:
I tend to think more in terms of clothing sizes than weight, so my main goal is to go back to the clothing size I was about 6 years ago when I was doing yoga everyday and was actually happy with the way I looked. So, here's hoping this site can help me get back down to a size 5!

My Program:
At the moment I'm signing onto this site everyday looking at the recommended exercises, watching how many calories I eat each day, trying to take an hour walk everyday, and drinking water or tea instead of snacking when I get the munchies after dinner. We'll see how that works!

Personal Information:
My name is Susie. I'm a graduate student in a doctorate program in clinical psychology.

I love reading, and am currently on a bit of a fantasy kick right now (I just love everything Neil Gaiman has written). I also love music; I play piano and flute and listen to the radio or showtunes for far too many hours a day. I'm also a huge sports fan; I love my Penn State Nittany Lions (hence the username), the Cleveland Indians, Cavs, and Browns, and the Chicago Cubs.

    Hi! I ran across your tag somewhere in here and realized I had found a sister lioness. If you look at my page you will see that I have a cat named Joe Paterno - and the cat is female! Well hope that you have a wonderful night! Roar! emoticon
